Brian Hansen

San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres
Prediction: San Francisco Giants

Peavy was supposed to go for the Padres but has now been pushed back. That means Banks gets the call and he's been brutal for two months now. He'll be opposed by Lincecum, who is among the best pitchers in baseball. Lincecum is 8-1 on the road with an awesome 2.11 ERA. B-Han says to go with the GIANTS!

Detroit Tigers @ Tampa Bay Rays
PICK: Detroit Tigers

Zach Miner versus Scott Kazmir at Tropicana Field in Tampa, where the Rays are 40-16 this season, certainly seems like a mismatch. Hence, such a high price.

But is this matchup really so lopsided? No, it's not. The Tigers are very much a live 'dog.

Miner is making his third start as he makes the adjustment from the bullpen. So far so good. He's won his two starts, giving up two earned runs in 12 innings with one walk. Control is a concern, but in his last start against the White Sox on Sunday, Miner threw 61 strikes out of 92 pitches, not issuing a base on balls.

Miner has yielded just three runs in his last 23 1/3 innings. Kazmir's home numbers appear daunting at 5-1 with a 1.68 ERA. But he's 1-2 in his past five starts. The lefty is 0-2 lifetime at home versus Detroit, surrendering nine runs, nine hits and 10 walks in eight innings. He has a 4.40 career ERA in six outings against the Tigers.

The Tigers are 21-8 this year when facing southpaws. It's not a surprise considering their strong right-handed bats - Magglio Ordonez, Miguel Cabrera, Gary Sheffield, Marcus Thames and Edgar Renteria.

There's no doubt the Tigers are the better offensive club. Detroit is No. 3 in the Majors in runs scored and fifth in batting average. The Rays, by contrast, rank 20th in each category. Tampa Bay is averaging only 2.6 runs in its last 19 games.

Detroit is coming on, too. The Tigers are 14 games above .500 during their past 48 games after a very slow start. They have won six of their last eight road contests.

There's is value here with Detroit. The Tigers are worth a shot.

Alex Smart

Colorado Rockies @ Florida Marlins
PICK: Under

The Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins will send two capable hurlers out to the mound in game 2 of their current four game series this Friday night, to face two explosive but inconsistent offenses.

The Colorado Rockies come out firing with the red hot Ubaldo Jimenez (7-9, 3.80 ERA) who is off pitching six scoreless innings against the Reds in his last trip the hill. The native of the Dominican Republic, now owns a stellar 2.07 ERA in his past 10 starts, that includes an even stingier 1.74 ERA in his L/6 appearances. The Marlins' teed off on Colorado last night, in a lopsided 12-2 win, but have been very inconsistent over the last month, and have done less damage to opponents at home in Dolphin Stadium, than they have on the road, batting just .243 as a team on the season, and could easily experience a stunted offensive outing in this spot.

Meanwhile, the Marlins return fire with their own top notch hurler, Chris Volstad(2-1 2.38 ERA). The 6'8” right hander has three straight quality starts, and has struck out 15 in his L/ 20 2/3 innings of action. It must be noted that Volstad has allowed only 1 Home run in his L/110+ innings of work (includes 91 innings in the minor leagues ). The Rockies have scored an average of just 3.7 RPG on the road this season, via a batting average on the low side of the Mendoza line .(248) and may find it very difficult unloading against the big man.

Considering the pitching matchup, and the decent number the linesmakers have given us to bet into , it will be an easy decision for me , recommending that we hit the under.

Play Under

Re: Friday Service Plays


St. Louis Cardinals at Atlanta Braves 

I'm playing the Over between the Cards and Braves on Thursday. Mike Hampton's return to the hill did not go too well. Hampton allowed six earned runs and 10 base runners (just one K) in just four innings of work. I don't expect the results to be much better tonight. The Redbirds rock lefthanders in road night games this season, scoring a hefty, 5.5 runs per game, and they've piled up 27 runs over the last three days against Brave pitching. But I believe Atlanta will match the Cardinals run-for-run tonight. The Braves are also in one of their better offensive situations tonight, averaging 5.1 runs per game in home night tilts against righties. They should have little trouble against Joel Pineiro. The Redbird righty has had his troubles in limited action against Atlanta and he's had a poor season in road starts, sporting a 5.43 ERA. Pineiro has allowed 14 earned runs and 35 base runners (including 30 hits) in his last three outings, covering 15 2/3 innings. That's a hefty, 8.03 ERA & 2.23 WHIP. I suspect both bullpens will be busy early in this one. I'm playing the Over in tonight's Cards/Braves clash.

Play on: Over

Gold Medal Club

Winnipeg @ Toronto

Winnipeg gets back all star slotback Milt Stegall, who will make a fine addition to an already loaded receiving core.Winnipeg's QB Dinwiddie will get his second start after throwing for 450 yards against Calgary last week.

As for Toronto, they are coming off a short week, with little preparation time after playing Sunday in Saskatchewan

Re: Friday Service Plays


These two faced one another last week in Cleveland, and neither recorded a decision. Tonight there will be no question which pitcher will prevail, as we side with the team that has won five of six and that is making a run at the AL Central-leading White Sox after winning its series with them the past several days. In come the struggling Indians, and since Jeremy Sowers has done nothing impressive on the road this season he's 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA I suspect this will be a rough one for him in side the Homer Domer.

I like our chances with Nick Blackburn, who pitched well enough to win against the Tribe five days ago, allowing one run and four hits in seven innings. The right-hander is 2-0 in three starts against Cleveland this season, as he's allowed three earned runs in 20-1/3 innings.

We take the home team in this one, as Minnesota is the clear choice in this AL Central showdown.

Re: Friday Service Plays


For Friday take the Padres at home plus a little bit.

I do not expect a lot of men touching home plate here at PETCO as runs are usually at a premium in this spacious ballpark but to be able to get the Pads at home plus a little in this spot is enough for me.

No doubt Tim Lincecum is a bona fide stud and a guy that should be able to put up some gooseggs here for sure but this guy Josh Banks is no joke himself and is well underated right now.

Neither team is going anywhere at all as both the Giants and Padres have been semi disasters. San Diego was expected to do some things possibly but the offense once again has been atrocious. But all in all Bruce Bochy's old club is still better than his new club as San Fran is awful and is due to lose some more on the road as their highway record is actually not that terrible when compared to their home mark.

This is far from a lock as the Giants definitely do boast the superior hurler but in a game that easily could be scoreless into the 8th inning I will back the overall better team which is at home and probably boasts the better bullpen and that's the Padres

Re: Friday Service Plays


Friday selection is the Colorado Rockies.

Colorado is a road favorite for one big reason and that is the right arm of Jimenez. For Jimenez despite his overall losing record he has been one of the better pitchers in the league of late as the righty has gone 5-1 with a 1.74 ERA over his last 6 starts. Meanwhile despite their set back last night it?s the Rockies who have won 6 of their last 8 games played against the Marlins in Florida. Well thanks to the ever improving Jimenez backed by a powerful lineup I look for the Rockies to even up the series tonight with a big road win.

All Colorado

Re: Friday Service Plays



The Angels look like the best team in MLB at the moment, and they are cutting up the top teams in the AL East this week without difficulty (9-2,+$745 in their last 11). They've got a solid Ervin Santana on the mound (3.57 ERA in 21 starts in 2008) taking on a NY team that is only 10-14,-$1240) in night games against righties in the  Bronx. Sidney Ponson was slapped around by the Bosox at Fenway in his last outing, and LA has put up outstanding road numbers this year (37-19, +$1930). It's hard to pass up the red hot visitor under the circumstances.

Tony Stoffo

LAA Angels vs. New York Yankees
Play: LAA Angels   

The reality of things is this Angels team has no holes, and just added Teixeira to a lineup that has beaten up on the Red Sox and Yankees so far this week out scoring them 34-15. Now tonight they get to face Sidney Ponson who got pounded in his last start against the Red Sox were he gave up 7 runs in only 4 innings pitched, plus is allowing opposing batters a hefty .322 average this season. Saying this look for another explosive showing for the Angels here. While I look for Erin Santana who is 8-2 with a 3.77 ERA on the road so far this season to keep the Yankees inconsistent bats in check for tonight. This Yankees squad shows no heart once they fall behind, and this is exactly what will happen again tonight. The Angels who closed out the month of July 19-6 continue their hot play tonight as everything points to another lopsided win here. Plus throw in the price the odds makers posted here makes the Angels the highly rated value play for tonight.

1 Unit on Texas Rangers -105

Toronto is just 3-12 against the money line on the road with a money line of -100 to -125 this season.  The Rangers will be looking to pay the Jays back here after Toronto swept them in Texas earlier this season.  Texas is 100-54 against the money line in home games vs. AL teams scoring 4.7 or less runs/game in the second half of the season since 1997 and 94-52 against the money line in home games vs. an AL team with a batting average of .265 or worse in the second half of the season since 1997.  Texas ' main objective has been outscoring teams all season long and that's what we'll see here tonight.

Matty O'Shea AL Value Play O' the Day

MIN -1.5 (+130) vs CLE

Minnesota's Nick Blackburn makes his first home start since he earned the win in a 7-0 victory against the Tigers back on July 2nd. Blackburn is 5-2 in nine home starts with a 2.70 ERA, with the last two wins decided by a combined score of 13-1. Meanwhile, Cleveland's Jeremy Sowers is just 1-4 in six road starts with an inflated 7.28 ERA. All four of the losses have been decided by two runs or more. Nine of the last 11 wins for the Twins have also been decided by at least two runs, so bet them on the runline here as my Single Dime AL Value Play O' the Day.

Matty O'Shea NL Value Play O' the Day

PHI -1.5 (+125) vs STL

Analysis: I'm in "fade Kyle Lohse" mode after watching what he did against a good-hitting lineup in the Mets last Sunday. Lohse surrendered three homers and seven runs overall in just five innings last time out, as the Cardinals have now lost two straight with him on the mound after going 11-1 in his previous 12 starts. Outside of two losses at Florida, the Phillies have won the last five times ace Cole Hamels has pitched away from home, including four by two runs or more. Philadelphia has also dominated this series at St. Louis, winning 10 of the last 14 games there. The last time they met on a Friday night there to open a series, the Phillies won in a 20-2 rout. In fact, all of Philly's last eight wins at St. Louis have been decided by at least two runs. I think that will happen again in this spot, so bet the Phillies on the runline as my Single Dime NL Value Play O' the Day

1 Unit on Arizona D-backs +105

Manny might be a Dodger now, but his bat isn't going to make enough of an impact against The Big Unit tonight.  The D-backs have won 6 of their last 7 games, 5 straight game 2's of a series, and Johnson's last 4 starts.  The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in Johnson's last 6 road starts vs. the Dodgers and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings overall.  The Dodgers are just 1-5 in their last 6 vs. a team with a winning record.  The Snakes are starting to click again and I like them showing solid value tonight.

Re: Friday Service Plays

Ted Sevransky

Cleveland Indians @ Minnesota Twins
PICK: Minnesota Twins

To say that Jeremy Sowers has struggled on the road this season is something of an understatement. The numbers don’t lie: six road starts in 2008, not one of them a quality start, with a 7.28 ERA and 1.72 WHIP. Opposing batters are hitting .328 against Sowers on the highway. The bullpen behind him is a disaster area, ranked dead last in the majors in ERA. And the Twins just saw Sowers last week – his junkball ways will be much easier to solve the second time around. Minnesota’s offense is clicking on all cylinders right now, rallying the team from a four run deficit last night and pounding out 41 runs in their last six ballgames.

Meanwhile, Twins starter Nick Blackburn has been nothing short of dominant at the Metrodoem this year, with a 2.70 ERA in nine previous home starts. Blackburn has completely shut down the Indians suspect lineup in each of his three previous starts against them this season: 20.2 innings of work, three runs allowed, three Twins victories. That’s the type of consistent level of performance worth betting on! 1* Take Minnesota.
