MLB Sunday

(24-20 +4,550)

Despite recent down fall on posted picks much of my angles are the same and like a slugger going through a slump it will came back on track.

Sunday games are the best, in my opinion.

NY Mets at Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto is rolling NY and the Mets will face another tough pitcher, Henderson Alvarez 7 quality starts out of 8 and 4 out of 5 at home.  He's a work horse pitching deep even has a complete game shutout only needing 97 pitches to do so.  The Mets have been in decline since winning the D-Backs series than sweeping the Phillies series, May 5 to 9th, during that period Mets were on offensive power surge topping the 5 game win streak with 10 runs on their last win. Miami series seems to be the turning point where they still had plenty of offense scoring 5 runs in a loss and 9 runs in a win, but the final rubber match loss strung Miami, Milwaukee and Toronto to the list of demise. Can Dillon Gee stop the sweep? 5.65 ERA & 1.44 WHIP? Gave up 7 runs in 5 1/3 innings including 2 HR against visiting Milwaukee, May 15th, 0-8 loss. Dillon has 3 quality starts out of 7 and his games are going Over to the tune of O/U 6-1 It's understandable to think Toronto sweep in this situation, but Gee is likely to bounce back from his terrible outing and Mets are 3-0 behind Gee on the road while Alvarez is 1-4 at home. Mets are a good Underdog team 17-14, 15-9 against right hand pitching and decent 9-11 on the road. Backing the Mets for no sweep as a decent size dog and taking the OVER.

NEW YORK METS +158 for 1 unit(W)
NY at TORONTO OVER 8.5 at -110 for 1 unit(W)
Took down the OVER.
Here we go baby! 9th inning Mets hanging to a 1 run lead! Drama is unfolding, GO METS!
Oh yeah, put two base runners on to keep it interesting then strike out the side, No Sweep!

Looking at the West coast game.
Anaheim Angels at San Diego Padres.
The weather is going to be perfect baseball kind of day. Ervin Santana will go for the Halos against Anthony Bass. Here's another rubber game and Padres would sure like to take this series at home. Bass is coming off a win at Washington beating their ace Strasburg on 8 innings 1 run gem. Not to forget Angels have lost their fair share of rubber matches this season, but I don't see Bass getting it done today. More likely his number will decline today. Santana's game is coming on track he is pitching deep. He had no run support in April and losing games now he heating up, shutting down Oakland for 7 plus inning in his last mound May 15th, his stuff has been looking nasty in his last 2 starts. Going Angels and Angels RL -1.5 to take this series on the road.

ANAHEIM ANGELS -117 for 1 unit(L)
ANAHEIM ANGELS RL -1.5 at +145 for 1 unit(L)
No time to snooze, got 2 in the bag and still in the grind.
OMG! Another late inning loss giving back the early runs.
Slightly positive with Mets coming through!
