While it’s impossible to give coach L.A. Looks too much grief after he won a title two years ago when nobody saw it coming, have you see the acquisitions they’ve made this summer? No joke, are you ready for this…Smush Parker & Penny Hardaway! Combine the bargain-shoppin' off-season with the loss of Jason Kapono (never thought I'd day that), and I give Riley a Chris Dudley's FT% chance of getting D-Wade and Shaq into the playoffs...well, that's unless Anfernee also brought along lil' Penny as part of the deal...luv that cat!
Anyway, thanks to the Homeboys who stopped by for cards last night, it was a blast…especially because I won. Enjoy the day off, and hopefully everybody except “My Guy” enjoys my picks.
TORONTO BLUE JAYS @ KANSAS CITY ROYALS
If I play against the Royals and don't have to give-up 1.5 runs to keep the # close to even, I usually can supersize my lunch the following day…Blue Jays by 2-4 runs
CHICAGO CUBS @ COLORADO ROCKIES
Cubdom should be happy I’m bettin’ the Rockies a 3rd straight day! Just playing the law-of-averages with a team that usually knocks in 10 runs every few days…Rockies by 2-5 runs
WASHINGTON NATS @ ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS (UNDA 8)
Brandon Webb (11-8, 2.92) looks like he’s found the filthy stuff that won him the Cy Young last year (last three starts, 23 innings and 0 runs!). As for the Nationals southpaw phenom, John Lannan (1-0, 3.71) has gotten better with each of his 3 major league starts and does a remarkable job of keeping the ball on the ground…Nats/D-Backs 3-6 total runs
