Well, the "system" some have asked us to track -- which coincided with our favorite runline of the day, Lincecum and the Giants -- looks as though it had a losing day, making it 4-3.
In general, I always believe in handicapping the games as well as relying on something like that -- but in this case, it made no difference anyway.
There are some games that look promising for Saturday
-- as always, the following are not picks, but ideas or "leans" to promote discussion.

Looks like a good day for Wednesday -- Tigers covered... making "the August system" (suggested by someone else, but I know some of us follow it) 4-2 as I've implemented it.
There's a tie for the biggest faves -- Yankees and Phillies at home. Make of it what you will; I prefer to handicap both games before committing.
With (note) lots of early games, we're on to Thursday

Later on Saturday or early Sunday morning, Key Element
and/or Goalline Bob
may post their own thread, and it's always excellent
(Click their name above to see if you can find the thread.)
In the meantime, here's some things I think are worth looking at, for those of you who like to look ahead (as do I) --
and so, realizing that most of Sunday's games are early...
Off we go.....

On to Saturday
, with a reminder or two:
Please focus on runline propositions and why you think a game is a good
runline proposition... why the game will cover -1 1/2, as opposed to
why you like the game in general.
2. The items on the next post are not picks, yet, but
plays -- picks I think we should look at -- for the sage participants to discuss. "All of us are smarter than any
of us," but we're a lot smarter still if we bring some analysis to bear.
Substantive comments will receive a substantive reply -- "All of us are smarter than any of us."
