Saturday Service Plays

Toronto at Atlanta

The Jays cost us 2 units (actually 3.3 units with juice) last night when they couldn't score a single run. This play isn't about me wanting payback, but it is about how the Jays are struggling. The Jays are batting .245 during their 4-game slide, including .133 (4 for 30) with runners in scoring position. Derek Lowe (5-2, 3.58) looks to rebound from his first loss in nearly a month for the Braves. Despite another strong performance, Lowe was unable to win his fifth straight start Monday against Colorado as he allowed two runs and three hits over eight innings in a 5-1 loss. The veteran right-hander pitched at least seven innings and allowed three runs or fewer for the fourth time in his past five starts. Lowe is 1-1 with a 2.49 ERA in his past three outings against Toronto, so I expect him to get back into the win column tonight against a struggling Jays lineup. Take Atlanta and Lowe over Toronto and Janssen for a half-unit.

Cleveland Indians at Cincinnati Reds
Play: Reds

Note: I am not a huge proponent of Interleague Records and how some teams do better in this situation but I am a Huge Proponent of (LPS) commonly known as Little Penis Syndrone. That is what the Reds have and that is why they play the Indians very well when they do play them. It is all about the Press that Cleveland gets verses that of Cincy and the Reds just don't like it. That is perhaps why they have beaten the Tribe the last 7 of 8 times they have played including last night's win. We have 2 kids pitching tonight in this contest and both have not lived up the hype. I am not sure how either of them will do and I don't think it is important. What is important is that LPS Thing and also where these squads have been going this year. Cleveland is currently in the toilet as they have struggled all year with their second line pitching and in part that is why they have had trouble winning games away from home. OK wait. They have had trouble winning games anywhere. While their relief throwers are doing a better job of late, I am not convinced that will continue. I am convinced that Cincy's Pen is much better and more consistant. I am also convinced that this LPS Thing is to our benefit. And I am convinced that this betting line is a good one considering the malady that we have with the home team. Therefore I will play them with Vim and Vigor.

Indians / Reds OVER 11

Last night these two teams combined to put only 4 runs on the scoreboard even though the posted total was up at the 10’ run mark.  But this evening in game two of the “battle of ohio” we have a pair of rookie hurlers on the mound who are a bit suspect.  Homer Bailey has been one of Cincinnati’s highest rated prospects for quite some time but has been unable to harness his quality skills up to this point.  Due to an injury to All-Star starter Edinson Volquez (back spasms), Bailey has been called up to the major leagues once again.  The problem is Bailey in the minors this season (3-5, 4.57 ERA) put up some suspect statistics.  Making his second major league start for Cleveland is rookie David Huff who was pounded to the tune of SEVEN runs in just 3.2 innings of an ugly professional debut.  Despite last night’s low scoring result, the Indians are 10-2 OVER/ROAD this season with a “double digit” posted total.  In the past three years Cincinnati is 24-12 OVER/HOME in the month of May.
