MLB Pick, May 5th

I like two road teams today, the Giants and Marlins. Both play well on the highway and are playing teams that aren't that strong at home.

$20 on San Fran (Sanchez) over NY Mets (Pelfrey), -1.5 @ +$150
Sanchez has only lost once this year and carries a tidy 2.23 ERA into today's game. Pelfrey has won once this season and has a hefty 7+ ERA.
$15 on Florida (Johnson) over St Louis (Westbrook), -1.5 @ +$135
Johnson takes the ball for the Fish. The ace of the staff brings a 0.88 ERA to the table. Not too shabby! Westbrook's ERA is 6.53, but he has pitched better in his last two outings. Florida is 9-5 on the highway this season while the Redbirds are below .500 at Busch.
Starting Bankroll  $1,500.00
Profit/Loss              <$64.00>
Current BR           $1,436.00

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.

  1. I haven't left any comments, but I'm enjoying these.

  2. Please do not take this personally, but the reason I keep visiting this blog is not to read your picks. Now -- the pictures -- THAT is a different matter... : o )
