Re: THURSDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LARRY NESS

New York Yankees @ Pittsburgh Pirates
PICK: Pittsburgh Pirates

The Yankees visited Pittsburgh this week for the first time since Losing Game 7 of the 1960 World Series. The Pirates were rude hosts on Tuesday (won 12-5) but the Yanks "returned the favor" last night, winning 10-0. New York will face its third straight left-handed starter in tonight's "rubber game" of the series, as Paul Maholm takes the mound for the Pirates. The New Yorkers had all sorts of trouble vs lefties on the road last year (5-14) but after splitting the first two games of this series against Gorzelanny and Duke, are 7-7 on the road vs lefties so far in '08. However, Maholm figures to be a much tougher opponent. He's been very good at home all season (4-1 with a 3.47 ERA in nine starts / team is 7-2) and has seen the Pirates win FIVE of his last six overall starts, including going 3-0 with a 3.15 ERA over his last five (team is 4-1). The Yankees will counter with Mike Mussina. Mussina began the year 1-3 but has since gone 9-2 with a 3.39 ERA in 12 starts (team is 9-3). He's 5-1 with 3.50 ERA in six road starts this year and it's also worth mentioning that he's MLB's winningest pitcher in interleague play since it began in 1997, going 21-13 vs NL teams. However, he's a so-so 8-6 with a 4.38 ERA in 21 road starts in IL play and last Saturday (at home), allowed a season-high 10 hits (and four ERs) in a 4-2 loss to the Reds. I like the way Maholm is pitching and the "price is right." Take this very 'live' home underdog.

Marco D´Angelo 

Today's Pick: SAN DIEGO PADRES

Look for San Diego to stop Minnesota's Winning streak behind the pitching of Josh Banks who has a 1.62 ERA on the Season. The Padres avoid the Sweep in an afternoon affair.TAKE SAN DIEGO.

Matty O'Shea

Astros -130

Houston blew one on Wednesday despite a solid pitching performance from Roy Oswalt, and I think Wandy Rodriguez will perform even better on Thursday.  Rodriguez has always pitched better at home, and this year is no different.  He is 1-2 at Minute Maid Park with a 2.10 ERA in 2008 after going 6-3 with a 2.94 ERA there a year ago.  With the Rangers still dealing with a depleted lineup due to injuries to Josh Hamilton and Milton Bradley, I think the Astros shut them down and get to Kevin Millwood (1-3 on the road with a 4.40 ERA) to take the series finale.

Jeff Scott Sports

2 UNIT PLAYS

SAN DIEGO/ Minnesota Under 8
The Under is 9-1 in Bakers last 10 starts during game 3 of a series and 11-5 in Bakers last 16 starts as an underdog, while the Under is 7-1 in Padres last 8 interleague games vs. a team with a winning record and 9-2 in Padres last 11 Thursday games, plus the Under is 9-1 in Cuzzis last 10 games behind home plate vs. Minnesota and 7-3-1 in his last 11 games behind home plate vs. San Diego. The pitchng matchup in this game has pitchers duel written all over it. Josh Banks has made 4 starts on the year and has a 2.13 ERA in those starts, plus in his lone home start he allowed just 1 ER in 6 innings of work. Josh's ERA is a bit higher at 3.31 in his last 3 starts, but he has allowed just a .258 OBP in the three games. His starts have averaged 6.5 rpg overall, including 4.5 rpg during the day and 6.7 rpg in his last 3 starts. Scott Baker has also been solid for his team as he comes in with a solid 3.47 ERA overall, including a 3.00 ERA in day games and a nice 2.37 ERA in his last 3 starts overall. Scott's last 3 starts overall have produced just 5.3 rpg, while his days games have averaged just 4.7 rpg. Minnesota's staff ERA has been very good of late as they own a 1.96 ERA in their last 10 games. The Padres score just 3.7 rpg at home with those home games averaging just 7.6 rpg. The Pads also score just 3.8 rpg vs righty starters and have put up just 3 rpg in their last 8. The Twins struggle in day games as they have a .256 BA and score just 3.6 rpg in those games. This game has solid pitching on the mound in a pitchers park, to go along with a solid Under Ump behind the plate. Looks to me like this will be low scoring affing, in the range of 5 or 6 runs.

I ALSO LIKE

CHICAGO -154 over Baltimore


1 UNIT PLAY

DETROIT -131 over St Louis
The Cardinals are 2-8 in their last 10 interleague games as a dog of +110 to +150 and 1-5 in Wellemeyers last 6 starts as an underdog, while the Tigers are 11-1 in their last 12 games as a favorite of -110 to -150 and 5-1 in Robertsons last 6 starts. The Tigers are slowly climbing back into the race for the AL Central as they come in having won 11 of their last 14 games overall and 13 of their last 18 at home. Overall Detroit is 20-17 at home scoring 5.7 rpg and hitting .296 in the process. Nate Robertson gets the ball for the Cats and he is beginning to put it all together. Nate has a 6-6 record with a 5.60 ERA overall, but in his last 3 starts overall he is 3-0 with a 3.93 ERA and in his last 3 home starts he has a 3-0 record with a 2.89 ERA. The Cards have had some problems scoring as they are averaging just 4.1 rpg in their last 12 games, plus they score just 4.5 rpg in day games. Todd Wellemyer has been solid for the cards and would like to shake off his last start which saw him allow 8 ER in just 3.1 inings of work in a 20-2 loss to the Phils, but the Tiger bats are hot right now, while Robertson has been on a roll. Detroit continues it's climb back with a solid win over a solid pitcher.

Re: THURSDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Andre Gomes

Game: Sacramento Monarchs @ Minnesota Lynx
Pick: 4 units : Minnesota Lynx -3.5

After five losses in a row, Minny finally won a game again! And they did in a great fashion, having the biggest win of the season. They can be very important for them, as they are a young team with three rookies playing major minutes and when these girls have confidence, Minny is one of the most dangerous teams in the league. In that losing streak, the team never lost by double digits points, in fact they lost 3 of those matches by a maximum of 4 points and their lack of confidence didn't provide them the spark to finish off the games. This is not the case today for Minny, as they won their last game and they will receive Sacramento today. It's curious to see that Sacramento is one of the teams which defeated Minny during their five game losing streak. So like the Liberty in their last game, this will also be a revenge game for the Lynx, a spot that they have handled in a great fashion last Tuesday.

Sacramento comes to this game in a terrible mood, as they lost by 73-78 at Indiana two days ago, a game that the Monarchs leaded by as many as 18 points, but they ended up losing after only being capable to score 26 points during the second half. This is a huge contrast of spirit between Minny and Sacramento. I expect a good revenge game for the Lynx today. My power rankings appointed Minny as favorites by 7 points, so 5 points has a lot of value. Take Minny in here.

Re: THURSDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Wunderdog

Phoenix at Chicago
Pick: Game Total OVER 175.5

Is there a total that can hold this Phoenix team to playing under? Not in this range and in this type of matchup. As the season has progressed the pace has gotten faster, especially when the emphasis has been run, run, and run. They are perfecting this type of play. Over the last four games, they have featured 765 points or 193 a game. The Sky has been no stranger to high-scoring games either, as they have allowed over 90 a game in their last three. These teams played in the 100s last time they met, and we don't see this one staying out of the 90s, so OVER gets the call.

Re: THURSDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Steve Zukiel Guaranteed Selections

Philadelphia vs Oakland
Rating: Guaranteed 70 Unit MLB Game Of The Year

In this contest, my money is on the Oakland A's

This report was done before last night's game was finalized.

These two teams have been heading in opposite directions. The Phillies have lost six straight, getting outscored 31-11 in the process. The A's meanwhile have won three of four and seven of their last 10. The pitching matchup also heavily favors Oakland as they have Rich Harden on the hill against Philadelphia's Adam Eaton. Harden has been all that and a bag of chips this season. The right-hander is a perfect 4-0 while sporting an ERA of 2.44. The A's have had great success with him on the hill as well, having won eight of his 10 overall starts. In fact, Harden has allowed more than two earned runs only twice all season. Adam Eaton meanwhile has been going the other way. Eaten is just 2-5 on the year and sports an ERA of 4.94. Things are even worse on the road, where he is 0-3, the team has won just two of his eight overall road starts, and his ERA is at 5.09. In his last two starts he has gone 0-2 and in just 11 2/3 innings of work, the right-hander has allowed 21 hits and nine runs. YUCK! Harden has owned the NL this season. In three starts, he has gone 2-0, the team has won all three and in 18 2/3 innings, he has allowed just two runs on 10 hits, walking just five while striking out 22. Oakland wins for fun.

STEVE ZUKIEL TAKES THE OAKLAND A'S OVER THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES AS MY GUARANTEED 70 UNIT MLB GAME OF THE YEAR

Re: THURSDAY SERVICE PLAYS

GREG SHAKER


SDP / MIN Under 8
Note: There are also some -125's out there but do the best you can on this total line. The liklihood of 9 or more runs being scored in this one are just not that good. The Padre Pitcher has been nothing short of extraordinary with 20 K's in his 5 starts this year and a mighty fine ERA and great ratios across the board. Certainly Petco has been his favorite place to pitch with just 1 run allowed over 14 innings. Baker has been a quality thrower all year, he has great ratios, and he is coming off one of his best performances. The Twins Pen has beeb good all year, the Padres Pen is starting to come around after a slow start. San Diego's Run Production remains low and that is an added benefit for today. The Padres sputtering offense continues to struggle, as it went 1 for 6 with runners in scoring position Wednesday, and is just 3 for 26, in such situations in its last three games. San Diego has scored the second-fewest runs in the majors at 293 and we don't have to wonder why. Sometimes plays can be very obvious and sometimes those are the best kind. This is one of those.

GINA

Texas Rangers at Houston Astros

Texas Rangers have won seven of the last 11 meetings, including Wednesday's, 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros.

Texas will send Kevin Millwood (5-3, 4.61 ERA), to the hill. The right-hander is 5-1 with a 2.19 ERA in seven appearances at Houston and is 6-3 with a 3.48 ERA in 10 career starts versus the Astros. The Rangers have won five of Millwood’s last 6 starts. Houston counters with Wandy Rodriguez (2-3, 2.81 ERA). The Astros are 1-5 in the lefthander’s last 6 starts. 

Go with the Rangers with Millwood at the helm to grab his fifth straight win against the Astros at Minute Maid Park. 

Texas Rangers +110
