What a start for the Gridiron Prognosticator! While the ½ point cover doesn’t look as impressive to some, the Bears were up 10 almost the entire second half and made the -2.5 line feel more untouchable than Jessica Simpson before her 1st marriage. Speaking of Peter Tom Willis’s ole’ squad, besides that short-kid with small hands, I absolutely luv what Lovie and Angelo have put together. They’ve always had a fast, ball-hawking defense, and they continue to add depth at every position, while on offense they’ve invested money on a veteran line and have now added some big-time playmakers in TE Greg Olsen and Devin “Just get me the ball” Hester. But as mentioned at nauseam by yours truly, I don’t care how much zip Sexy Rexy has on his ball or how the players look-up to him like the social-chair of a fraternity…he’s too small, too slow, and too fragile for my flag-football league, let alone the NFL. I know Brian Griese’s no Tom Brady, but at least his hands are bigger than Papa Smurfs’!
As for our favorite dog-lover Ronny Mex, it’s to the point where I can’t even turn on the radio anymore as it’s time for the racial cards to be played. Listen, I will never claim to walk-in-ones-shoes (but I’d luv to walk in their boxers once), but torturing 100s of dogs and funding the entire illegal operation is not a cultural thing…it’s a sick-person thing. Anywho, tomorrow I’ll get back to giving you guys some fantasy luv and start to breakdown some College Football action…damn, I get a halfie just writing about it!
FLORIDA MARLINS @ ST. LOUIS CARDINALS (-1.5 runs) (+105)
Red Birds hurler Adam Wainwright has been awesome lately with a 1.96 ERA ova his last 3 starts, while their line-up is finally starting to knock things out of the ballpark. As for the Marlins, they’ve lost 6 in-a-row and rumor has it Miguel Cabrera ate the scouting report on the Cardinals. Heading to the bump for Florida is rookie Daniel Barone who has an ERA of 6.23 after his first two starts and is yet to make it out of the 5th inning…Cardinals by 4-6 runs
BOSTON RED SOX (-135) @ TAMPA BAY D-RAYS
Somebody please help me on why this line is so low tonight. The 1st place Red Sox are sending Jon Lester to the mound where he faced the D-Rays in his last start and only gave-up 2 hits and 1 run thru 7, while last place Tampa is sending Andy SonnaSTINKYstine (2-8, 6.17) to the bump where he has a 9.20 ERA in his last 3 starts. What can I say, maybe a should give NBA ref Tim Donaghy a call…Red Sox by 2-4 runs
