* Greggy G’s 2007 Pigskin Picks: 8-3 ATS
With the Pigskin action almost fully underway, my passion for the diamond is leaving me faster than Rafer Alston’s Houston Rocket career. Throw-in a cut Patriots’ punter who drunkenly bitch-slapped his daddy in a car and you know the bloods flowing for more than just the fans. As for my sorry-azz, I also have my last fantasy football draft tonight, but I can’t say I’m too thrilled since I have the 3rd pick once again…probably the worst spot to be besides sitting behind Brad Penny in the buffet line. You know I’ll have my fingers crossed hoping I can grab Rae Carruth on the 2nd round turn. Anyway, something serious has come-up and I need head out of town for a couple days, but will make sure to have my college football picks displayed for ya Friday & Saturday (and of course another diamond gem for ya today). All the best to my Homeoby BK…Just like the rest of the boys, I have nuttin’ but luv for ya brother.
SAN FRAN AARP GIANTS @ COLORADO ROCKIES (-1.5 runs) (+115)
The always streaky Rockies have won 5 out of 6 and will be sending their suddenly sensational rookie Ubaldo Jimenez to the mound (last 4 starts: 2-0, 1.69 ERA). As for the AARP Giants, they seem to have already closed-up shop for the season having lost 4 in-a-row and running low on arthritis medicine. Tonight, they’ll be sending a bullpen regular Kevin Correia (3-6, 3.77) to the bump where he’ll be making only his 4th start of the season. I expect Colorado to jump on him early as they’ve pulled within a couple games of wild-card and should have their young hitters and rabid fans riled-up to beat-up on the old-geezers from the Bay…Rockies by 3-5 runs
