What do you know…Ozzie mumbles something controversial throwing his squad under the bus and they respond…well, slap me and call me the former Mrs. Kidd! Throw-in another Cubbie victory against a bottom-feeder, a Bulls coaching (and possible GM) carousel that has the Rifleman (Chubby Chucky Person) flying in to interview, and Greggy G’s 2nd consecutive undefeated ATS diamond pick, and things couldn’t be more interesting in the city that Les Lancaster built.
As for today's banter and picks, I have one gem for you now, and promise to give you more of my wisdom after 4:00 today...wish me luck, I have a lil interview w/ GM Johnny Pax this afternoon!
TORONTO BLUE JAYS & NY YANKEES (OVA 8.5)
Tonight’s contest in the Bronx screams of a Softball Slugfest. While Grandpa Mussina (4.26, 8-4) has pitched well this season, checking out Toronto’s splits against him (while sippin’ on a nice Cab last night) it was tough to find a Blue Jay that wasn’t hitting ova .300 against him for their career. In addition, the Yankee bullpen is beyond taxed, which means Girardi will be forced to make his old-timer pitch longer than he should. While Blue Jays youngster Jesse Litsch (3.18, 7-1) has been awesome so far this year, he hasn’t pitched in Yankee stadium this year and I have feeling will be extra nervous trying to keep Toronto in control of the series. And finally...
And finally, the Bronx Boobs have lost 3-straight and should be dialed-in to right-their-expensive-ship…Yanks/Blue Jays 11-14 total runs
CHICAGO CUBS (-120) @ SAN DIEGO PADRES
Even if Maddux pitches well, he doesn't pitch past the 6th very much anymore and the Padre bullpen is beaten up...and SD is due to hit like they normally do...Cubs by 2-4 runs
