Home of Greggy G’s MLB Picks: 95-64.5 ATS For Entertainment Purposes Only!

RB BRANDON JACKSON (Green Bay Packers)
So-called Expert RB rank: 41st
Sexy Greggy G RB rank: 28th

Listen to me now and hear me later, the former Cornhusker will be the biggest surprise among the skilled-position rookies. And I’m not saying this because Jackson made my Cyclones look silly last year, shiznit, Emanuel Lewis (I luved Webster) could have averaged at least 4.5 per carry against ISU. I’m saying this because the Packers weren’t sure about RB Vernand Morency before he started missing most of training camp, and they know Noah Herron will never be more than a 2nd or 3rd back. Jackson had the luxury of playing in pro-style offense under former NFL coach Bill Callahan, and because of Nebraska’s depth, doesn’t have all the miles that Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch do (damn do I luv the name Marshawn!). While Grandpa Favre will want to throw-it 50 times a game, you have to think the Packers will do everything they can to make sure he doesn’t miss a start this year. Especially if the season becomes a wash eaarly-on, expect almost all the carries to go the rookie’s way.

RB LADELL BETTS (Washington Redskins)
So-called Expert RB rank: 30th
Sexy Greggy G RB rank: 24th

While I hate drafting former Hawkeyes more than I hate that sharp little invisible dagger you can’t find on your undies, Betts proved last season that he’s more than just a mediocre back-up (1599 total yards, 4.7 rushing average). Especially with Clinton Portis more interested in wigs & Halloween costumes and starting to show signs of wear-n-tear, the well-rested 6-year veteran should garner plenty of touches even if Portis is healthy (I’d bet my Kobe Tai collection that he starts less than 10 games) Obviously, if you’re stupid enough to grab Portis you have to draft Betts, but don’t be fooled into thinking you can grab him past the 5th round…especially if Greggy G’s in your league!


WR BRANDON JONES (Tennessee Titans)
So-called Expert WR rank: 58th
Sexy Greggy G WR rank: 37th

I know you don’t know who he is but…oh shiznit…my mom’s coming down to the basement, gotta roll! But of course I have some picks and pics for ya today, and I promise to finish-up my FF Sexy Subtle Steals for 2007-08 tomorrow…HOLLA

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS @ MILWAUKEE BREWERS
Somebody’s more nervous than Britany Spears when the pain-killers and Mad Dog wears-off…and their called the Brew Crew. I absolutely luv their young line-up, but they’ve been trying to do too much lately with a pitching staff who’s ERA is 7.08 in August. And for tonight, the Brewers will be sending Dave Bush (9-8, 5.07) to the mound and he’s actually been worse than that this month (7.36). As for the Cardinals, they’re on fire having won 6 of 7 and will be sending their ace lately to the bump in Adam Wainwright (2.86 ERA in last 3 starts)…Cardinals by 3-5 runs

CHICAGO WHITE SOX @ OAKLAND ATHLETICS (UNDA 8)
The Sux and A’s are last, and second to last, in runs scored in the AL and are basically playing tonight because they have to. The Southsiders will be sending their best pitcher of late Javier Vazquez (last 4 starts: 3-1, 3.33), while Oakland has arguable the best pitcher in the AL facing a bunch of terrible minor leaguers (Dan Haren 13-4, 2.53). BTW, I have a new slogan for GM Kenny Williams: “White Sox baseball, it’s simply unwatchable!”…Sox/A’s 3-5 total runs

AARP GIANTS @ ATLANTA BRAVES (UNDA 8.5)
I know my jokes about San Fran’s old-azz line-up looking more out of place than Dylan McKay, Brandon Walsh, & Andrea Zuckerman at Beverly Hills High, but it’s not like their getting any faster or younger as the season winds-down. The Giants have played 16 straight days (including a double-header) and seemed even more drained from Barry “the Science Experiment” Bonds experience. In their last 6 games they’ve only scored 4 runs or more twice, while the last time they faced Braves hurler Chuck James (9-8, 3.93) the only managed 2 runs in that contest. As for the Gaints pitcher Tim Lincecum (6-3, 3.88), excluding his last start, the rookie has only given up 8 runs over his last 8 starts. In that mix, he faced the Braves about 3 weeks ago and give-up 2 runs and 6 hits thru 6. I expect the same type of efficient performance tonight and expect the unda to hit easily tonight…Giants/Braves 4-6 total runs
