As I downed the last of my brilliant mixture of 7-UP, OJ, Lime, and healthy splash of Maurice Clarett (aka Grey Goose), I did it with a smile as I inched closer to a 3-0 ATS evening…and then, some rook on the White Sox batting .182 proceeds to hit a grand slam in the 7th! While the Mariners still won, as I told ya, they didn’t cover the -1.5 runs I needed. Oh well, 2-1 is nuttin’ to Dick Vermeil over, but I’m a perfectionist and you guys deserve better. With that, I’m off to the Race Track where I live by the motto that Craig’s dad in Friday taught me…You win some, and lose some, but live…you live to fight another day!
ST. LOUIS CARDINALS @ CHICAGO CUBS (OVA 9.5 runs)
These two are due for a slugfest after yesterday’s hard-fought pitchers dual…and it sure help that’s Anthony Reyes (2-11, 5.48) is on the mound for the Red Birds…Cubs/Cards 11-14 runs
CHICAGO WHITE SOX @ SEATTLE MARINERS (-1.5 runs) (+130)
While Jeff Weaver is no Cy Young, he looked like in his last start against the White Sox pitching a shutout (8 Ks, 0 BBs) in 6-0 victory. I expect similar results today, with only more runs for the Mariners with rookie John Danks on the mound…Seattle by 4-7 runs
