Greg Gamble's Monday MLB ATS Plays

2night's pitching match-up of crusty vets Paul Byrd & Kenny Rogers can be compared to who's better at nailing a Cougar

While the youngsters see as Cougar as she is...

...the experienced pros treat a Cougar like a supermodel to make the venture well worth their while!

DETROIT TIGERS (-105) @ CLEVELAND INDIANS
My feelings on crafty veterans like Kenny Rogers & Paul Byrd are similar to those of slutty Cougars at the local watering-hole. The young bucks usually are caught-off-guard by the dried-up vets and end-up trying to act too cool when positioning themselves for a quickie (Diamond definition- inexperienced youngsters try to crush each soft-tossing pitch). As for the guys 30 and over, the play it smooth and treat the washed-up cougs like super-models, and as a result are able to do things usually only seen in the movies filmed in Van Nuys, California (Diamond definition- the vets are able to pick-n-choose their favorite pitches and place it where they want). As a result, I expect the veteran Tiger hitters to have much more success against Byrd (4-10, 5.28) than the suddenly youthful Tribe against the crabby Rogers (8-6, 4.48). Especially with...

Having a look of desperation like the Tigers will be showing is usually a good sign at the pool and on the ATS docket

Especially with Cleveland continuing to prove their in the rebuilding mode (Casey Blake just traded) and Detroit still thinking the have a chance to catch the Southsiders, I expect the Tigers to patiently rough-up a pitcher they’ll be facing for the 3rd time this season…
Tigers by 2-3 runs

Just like my preference with the ladies, I usually invest on the pitcher with the longer-legs!

CHICAGO CUBS @ BREW CREW (-1.5) (+135)
The red-hot Brewers will be playing their 2nd consecutive series at home and will be facing a pitcher they’ve had roughed-up at Wrigley earlier in the year (Ted Lilly: 4.2 innings & 4 earned runs). Throw-in that the Cubs bats have been a little inconsistent since the All-Star Break and will be facing the hottest pitcher in baseball (C.C. Sabathia w/ Milw. 4-0, 1.36 ERA), and I expect the Brewers to ride the home-crowd and recent momentum to an easy victory tonight...
Brewers by 3-5 runs

If you took a picture of the current standings, it might be the nicest spot the Braves are at from here on out!

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS (-105) @ ATLANTA BRAVES
The weekend for the Braves against Philly was considered by many as a make-or-break series in regards to contenting in the NL West, and after watching Philly absolutely destroy their staff in winning 2 of 3, it looks like Hot-Lanta might be ready for a fire-sale. As for the Cardinals, while their slowly falling in the Central, Tony “Drinky & Sleepy at the wheel” LaRussa will not let them fade quietly as their still only 4 games back. As for the pitching duel tonight, while it could be argued St. Louis hurler Branden Looper is a much better hitter (.316 avg & .381 OB%) than pitcher (9-8. 4.49), when compared to Braves youngster Charlie Morton (2-3, 6.00) he looks like Cy Young…
Cardinals by 2-3 runs
