Yesterday's pick today

Royals win tonight...

Bum hangs out in the bullpen, just for show.  Royals win tonight, and force game 7, and Bum goes tomorrow for all the marbles, on short rest, oh the drama of it, his series to win or loose, because he has earned that right.  If the giants win it tonight, that does not happen, what a waste of good tv ratings.

Yesterdays pick today

I could list a lot of homework, but let me just post this...
Bullpen'sera...  Giants 3.38, royals 0.68
bat avg last 5 games (where it counts) 
giants v righties 2.53, v lefties .176 (ouch - vargas and shields - his change up great v lefties)
royals v righties .268, v lefties (Bum) .281 - so they hit lefties better than righties.  
Shields v giants hitters , 7 hits last 39 AB. bat avg against .184.  
Opponents played, mmm  Royal's beat A's and O's (these two teams destroyed their opponents this year), and Giants played who?  Wash and Cards, where Wash layoff prior to cooled their bats, and Cards were just lucky to be there, and Molina being out hurt big time.  
Home field start. 
Look when your bats are alive and well, and you have a pen that just shuts down the last 3, its tough to beat them.  Giants pitching is just not that good v AL hitters, who are just better than NL bats, stats show.  1 runs games are the key to giants wins.  Let's see, oh yeh, those usually come in the last at bats.  
THE TEAM WITH THE BEST BULL PENS WIN WORLD SERIES, PERIOD.  Giants know this, and will be looking to get ahead early, which will make them press.  yes it is about pressure, and pressuring the other guy to play your game. The Giants are already feeling the pressure and trying to plan how to beat the royals before they see the pen.  That's not their game.  Royals are on a run, a... [More]

so, today we have win or go home games.  

bats come alive, wind blowing out, ump neutral if there is such a thing, but Nats have woke up from their layoff, and they have that mo jo again, after yesterday's mishap and good fortune.  They believe they can again! and that is NOT good for Giants fans.  

Dodgers numbers v miller are pretty darn good, i.e. OPS 1.065 v .075 v kershaw(cards).  The actual numbers favor Kershaw win here.  


Los Angeles Dodgers -160* vs St. Louis Cardinals

Washington Nationals -135* vs San Francisco Giants

and parlaying

Los Angeles Dodgers -160* vs St. Louis Cardinals

 Los Angeles Dodgers/St. Louis Cardinals Over 6½ -105*

nothing big, but I do not like loosing.

So last night was oh so sweet.  Go KC, loved that 1st 5 over, easy peezey, but enjoyed it for about 5 minutes, and forgot about it already, playing Joe Maddon ball.  
Took Pirates couple days ago, and will double up. McCutchon is the key tonight, the starters will not be, just like last night, there will be a tipping point with both of them, and while the pens try to take over, bats will decide this game late. McCutchon loves the spot light moments, and he has been coming through.  Posey has been the key for SF lately,and if he isn't 100% (and he is not), that back may keep himfrom the long ball, and don't really see anyone else steppingup to go yard for them.  
IMHO Pirates get it done tonight, and in this spot they have thetrends edge for sure.  It may come as a shock to the "public" ifsan fran doesn't advance, but not to me, not this year.  
laying off the total.

Yesterday's picks today for tomorrow

Thought I would post early, don't care about any line moves or who is calling strikes and balls, its an intense one game playoff.  Big Game James will pitch the game of his life. Having watched him pitch at thr trop all those years, he just lives for these moments.  And lester's dominance is not his attitude, which will act toughas always, but his ball has not had same life and movement last few games.  You can't throw what you aint got, and the Royals know it.  having said that, hunch is an over might just happen, but still think the Royal advance. Home/away matters here, a lot.  One game, quick flight, rush, rush, rush, media circus, etc. Home cooking, your own bed, helps the nerves a lot.   Also like Pirates wednesday, same reasons. 

Posting these futures pick. FYI 

World Series Matchup - Los Angeles Dodgers vs Baltimore Orioles +1240
World Series Matchup  -  Washington Nationals vs Baltimore Orioles +1200

Jeter's gets a cookie

I was sleeping, but saw the replay this morning.  I took the Yanks last night.  I knew something like that would happen.  O's did not need the win, O's skipper respects the game, but why not give Jeter a cookie in that situation.  It's the unwritten code.  Why not.  Even I don't have a problem with it.  Not saying it was fixed.  Just saying why not end it like that.  Even a cookie still has to be hit fair, and play at the plate was real, decent throw, but safe, even O's fan have to tip the cap.  As do I to Jeter, and I am not a Yanks fan.

Trying a couple two teamers, been working lately (last night missed one by a back door meaningless run - happens) But POD hit, like those wrigley unders. was going to double up on that tonight, but, maybe not.  Got a feeling it might just sneak to the over, no play for me.  
so tonight...

No feedback?  I know some covers vets view my posts based on my past performance (as do I theirs), and for you newbies, welcome.  Not that I want thanks or anything really, but just would be nice to know who's here.  An "at a a boy" would be nice, or at least a  if you have profited from this recent run of two team parlay winners, which I have to say has been very fortunate. You never know when it falls off the tracks, and by posting this and saying it, well, like the announcer who started talking about The Rays - Cobb no hitter in the middle of the 7th, put the cabosh on that one right quick, the moron, and also spoiled my under parlay with the brewers under, which did hit.  Hope everyone is doing great. as always best of fortunes.

Having fun with my run with two teamer parlays.  Hit the early games, cws and the under reds game.

one play tonight.  was really trying to find something to go with this, but honestly, I did not find anything worth risking.  Tempted but laying off KC, Wash, Rays.  Just doing this.

house money today from yesterday's 3 teamer.  hoooowa. 

Jays and O's today . 

Dickey's ball moved more last outing than I have seen in a long time, and the O's will not be swept.  Hellickson has a pitch count, and the Rays pens and bats will not support this, plus norris pretty tough ombre, and after the past ball yesterday win for rays, O's will come out steaming, might be a blow out for the O's, no mercy rules today.

If there ever was a loss that I'd be OK with, its this one. 

3 team parlay, feeling that good, very large for a 3 teamer.  If it misses its because something weird happens, and aint that always the case :)

Boston Red Sox -127* vs Toronto Blue Jays
Cleveland Indians -167* vs Chicago White Sox
Tampa Bay Rays -127* vs Baltimore Orioles

These 3 starting pitchers are as hot as it gets right now.  Hope the pens can support, bats too, but wont need much.

Playing some high risk reward tonight.

Houston Astros +152* vs Los Angeles Angels
Cincinnati Reds +132* vs Baltimore Orioles
Texas Rangers +142* vs Kansas City Royals

and then

San Diego Padres -118* vs Arizona Diamondbacks
Tampa Bay Rays -113* vs Toronto Blue Jays
Now that the season is basically over, and the pressure is off
(they were picked pre season fav), watch the bats come alive down
the stretch here, just when it doesn't matter.  Dickey ball don't move as
much when they turn the a/c and fans off, dead air in the trop,
home field advantage, low crowds, less a/c needed.  Just saying
been there and felt it. small thing, but is in the head of
the hurler.  If Hellickson keeps the ball down, Rays win. 

couple others...

Boston Red Sox/New York Yankees Over 8½ -124*
Seattle Mariners/Oakland Athletics Over 6½ -139
New York Mets/Miami Marlins Over 8 -110*

Pretty good day yesterday. 

Like dogs today (with mustard) .

New York Mets +109* vs Miami Marlins
Minnesota Twins +113* vs Baltimore Orioles
and  St. Louis Cardinals -118* vs Pittsburgh Pirates

parlaying mix and match with ...  New York Mets/Miami Marlins Under 7½ -154*

San Diego Padres -168* vs Arizona Diamondbacks
and...  Tampa Bay Rays -175* vs Boston Red Sox

my notes...  Bucholtz was dealing like I thought he would so I
stayed off the rays and hit the under.  watch him next outing
against I don't care who.  However, Rays pitching staff under 3.0 last 30 games,
and can't hit to save their lives. Like Smyly today, but only if it is
and under.

Bucholtz numbers actually better then cobbs, and Buc had a good game last outing,
may have found something, also fighting to stay in majors. 
Lots of motivations these days, other than making playoffs.
Jays day games, what is it, they love them. McCarthy high PI last outing.
arms also get tired this time of year, have to watch that pitches per in pitched
CWS are due for one

also parlaying a couple with...  O's, LAD, Astros.
