Guess I was due for a clunker. 2-7 overall and just 2-3 in my top plays, PLUS I lost all of the PA's I had posted. Truly a horrid day. well im not gonna let one night ruin what I have accomplished the last 11 weeks. lets get it back today.
I have just one question though. Why were the Dodgers so excited about the offensive pieces they picked up through the trades? I mean seriously you should be thrown out the league for scoring just 1 run in two games vs a horrid Rockies pitching staff. An Alex white is the worst on their staff yet LA didn't get anything off him last night. Unreal.
3 UNIT PLAYS
Cincinnati -141 over MILWAUKEE: Let's do the old fade Randy Wolf trick here. Randy has been bad this year with a 3-8 mark overall and a 5.57 ERA, while the Brewers have gone just 6-15 in his starts this year. At home he is just 2-5 with a 4-89 ERA, while in his day starts he has gone 0-3 with a 4.46 ERA. The Brewers are just 1-5 in his days starts. Randy has decent numbers vs the Reds, allowed 3 ER's or less in 8 of his last 9 starts vs them, but he has yet to face them this year, and as I said this year he is bad. Mat Latos has really been pitching well of late as he is 3-0 with a 1.77 ERA in his last 3 starts. On the road his ERA is slightly high at 4.50, but his offense has bailed him out as he is 4-1 in his road starts, while he is a perfect 4-0 with 3.47 ERA in his days starts. The Reds are 5-2 in those starts. Matt faced the Brewers once this year (at home) and he allowed just 1 rin in 9 innings in that game. Milwaukee has taken the first two of the series, but I just can't see the Reds getting swept here. Overall the still have the better offense, they have the much better starter on the mound and the motivation of looking to avoid the sweep will all be too much for the Brewers to handle in this one.
NY Yanks/ Detroit Over 8.5: Google News Play Yes CC is on the mound for the Yanks, but he can be hit on the road as he has a 4.26 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP away from home, compared to a 2.81 ERA and an 0.97 WHIP at home. Detroit's offense has been very good of late and they have upped their home average to 4.96 rpg game, after averaging 6.3 rpg in their last 18 games here. Detroit hitters have hit CC well as they have a .270 average with 9 HR's and 31 RBI's in 215 AB's vs him. Anibal Sanchez will be making just his 3rd start for the Cats and he he has one good and one bad start for them so for, but overall he has not fared well vs the AL this year as he has a 5.45 ERA in 6 starts vs this them. His only good start was his last outing vs a Cleveland team that has been very bad offensively of late. The Yanks offense is always waiting to just explode and that may happen here. The do average 4.7 rpg on the road, including giving CC 6.1 rpg worth of support in his road games. We also have an ump (Bill Welke) behind the plate whose games have averaged 9.55 rpg on the year (20 games) and a couple of pens that have not been that good of late. No way this game shouldn't hit at least 9 runs.
CHICAGO -1.5 (-105) over Kansas City: Do ya hear that sound White Sox fan's? That's the sound of Cats claws right on your heels. Chicago lost last night at home, while Detroit was winning and that has enabled Detroit to pull within a half game of the Sox in the Central and if they keep losing home games to these lesser teams then they will really have no chance of staving off Detroit in the Central. Thank God for the Sox that there is a pitcher named Jeremy Guthrie in the league. The Royals swapped one bad pitcher (Johnathon Sanchez) for another (Jeremy Guthrie), when they made the trade with the Rockies. Guthries has been just as bad for the Royals as he was for Colorado, as he is 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA in his three starts since his return to the AL and KC has lost all three games by 2 runs or more. How about this for some more numbers. Jeremy is 0-6 with an 8.90 ERA in 6 starts vs the AL this year. In those starts he has pitched 30.1 innings and has allowed 30 ER's on 47 hits and 11 walks. Now that's bad and he will be taking on an angry Sox team here, after they were held to just 2 runs in last night's 5-2 loss. Jose Quintana has been solid for the Sox this year, with a 4-1 mark, a 2.80 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. The Sox are 4-1 in his home starts and he has a 2.31 ERA in those starts. KC is just 13-22 and they score just 3.6 rpg off of lerfties on the year and add that to the fact that Jeremy is 0-12 vs the RL in his losses and the fact that that the ox need this one bad and you have a recipe for a very easy win by Chicago tonight.
PITTSBURGH +126 over Arizona: (Added) The Pirates have begun to slide a little, but they still are in the thick of the playoff race and I expect them to home a good showing tonight. Last year Kevin Corriea was just horrible at home, but he has changed it around this year as he is 4-2 with a 3.62 ERA at PNC Park this year. Kevin also comes in with a 3-0 mark and a 3.71 ERA in his last 3 starts So he is pitching well right now. Ian Kennedy is also pitching well of late as he is 4-0 with a 2.54 ERA in his last 4 starts, but he has struggled on the road this year at 4-5 with a 3.62 ERA and the D-Backs are just 5-7 in his road starts. The Offenses are pretty even here as the D-Backs score 3.6 rpg on the road, while Pittsburgh averages just 3.7 rpg at home and the Pitching matchup is pretty even as well, but I feel that Pittsburgh really needs this one more as they would like to build momentum before the Padres come to town and they are 34-17 at home, while Arizona is 26-30 on the road. Look for Pitt to bounce back in this one.
