We were foiled last night from a double-up winner when the Yankees allowed two runs in the bottom of the ninth to narrow their winning margin to 12-11 over the struggling Rangers. It’s a frustrating late give-away, but I suppose the bright side is that it could have been significantly worse; Brian Robertson had gotten himself into a world of trouble allowing two runs, loading the bases and running the count to 3-2 before retiring the dangerous Adrian...

The MLB schedule is back at full capacity after many teams had Monday off, so we have the full slate of 15 games to sift through today to try and find a winner. We stumbled yesterday with the Rockies bats going chilly on a cool night in Chicago and mustering just a single run in against the Cubs rookie hurler. We will look to bounce back tonight. But first, a quick tip of the cap and a little “RE2PECT” to the Yankee’s Captain for moving into... Read MoreRockies vs. Cubs Pick MLB – July 28th
We notched an easy double-up win last night with the Oakland A’s predictably bashing the hapless Rangers by a 9-3 tally. The win gave Oakland their major league-best 65th win, keeping them on pace to have their best season since the vaunted Bash Brothers teams of the late 1980’s. The loss gave the Rangers a similarly “leading” 64th loss, and one has to think that the often embattled Ron Washington might finally be filling out change of address...

Clayton Kershaw continued making his dominant case for the third Cy Young Award with yet another jaw-dropper last night; this time two-hitting the bitter rival Giants and notching his fifth shutout in his last six starts. It’s truly been pretty amazing stuff the last month for Kershaw –as consistently dominant pitching as I can recall. If Justin Verlander won the MVP/Cy Young double three years ago, perhaps they’ll need to invent a third award... Read MorePirates vs. Rockies Pick MLB – July 26th
The Yankees continued their strong play last night, notching a 6-4 win and earning us a nice victory to resume from the two day hiatus with a win. Meanwhile across MLB there has been a pair of teams streaking like meteors – in opposite directions. The Tampa Bay Rays continue their improbable storm back into wildcard contention with their eighth straight victory. Suddenly the rush to jettison David Price seems a lot less urgent – or sensible. Meanwhile,... Read MoreBlue Jays vs. Yankees Pick MLB – July 25th
Baseball’s a funny game. I know I’ve written it before, but truly no other professional sport has more closeness between “good” and “bad” and more tendency to be randomly either one day from the next. Think about it – the best teams win 90-100 games. The worst teams win 60-70. The difference between glory and despair is often separated by just 15% of winning percentage. That’s not the case in the NBA and the NFL or in major college... Read More
