As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my eye was going to be on Michael Phelps through the OLYMPICS, and the man continues to amaze me. After watching his final race last night, I realized that part of the amazing story is that not only that he is the fastest in the pool, or that he can be the fastest in any type of swim, it is his conditioning that leads to stamina that is equivalent to Ron Jeremy.
I think it's time to move to Kentucky, unless Ron beats me to it....
When you look at all of the warm up and cool down time in the pool, the robot known as Phelps spends more time in the water than in his bed. And now that he is done, I think as sports fanatics, we all need to take a step back and realize that we have witnessed something that may never occur again. So take a second, clear your mind of the porn that is a continuous feed into your memory bank, and take a drink for Michael, cause we know he hasn't had one in a while.
So as the Olympics head into their 2nd week, and we wait patiently to see if our NBA boys can take the I out of TEAIM, I bring you some MLB action that may keep things interesting today.
Baltimore Orioles @ Detroit Tigers +120(-1.5runs)
While I got burned yesterday by going with the runs for the Yankees.....
....I don't think the Tigers will treat me the same today. Zach Miner has been solid for Detroit since getting called up from the Mudhens, he has posted a 3-1 record and 2.15ERA. So I know that he will keep them in the game today, but what really caught my attention is that Olson is on the mound for Baltimore, he is a lefty and I always throw down when they Tigers are up against lefties cause they have posted a 21-10 record against them in 08. Tigers win 6-3.
Milwaukee Brewers +125 @ LA Dodgers
Jeff Suppan has been a forgotten man since the addition of CC into the Brewers rotation, but I haven't forgotten that he has been on fire since the All Star break and magically is good for 7-8 innings each outing. So I don't think the Dodgers can much more than a couple opportunities to put runners across the plate. For the Brewers bats, they are excited today cause much like the Tigers, they love the lefties(24-11 this year). And that is enough for me. Brewers win outright, 5-2.
