May Today (15th), 2017 Picks:
Rays (Archer) vs Indians (Carrasco)
I am fairly certain I have picked Archer in every game this year. He has usually rewarded me with a victory. I think today is the day I go against him. I can’t pick him in all 35 starts he will have this year. I think it is a low scoring game but I have the Indians coming on top in this one. I will be back with Archer soon. Just not today.
Astros (Musgrove) vs Marlins (Straily)
The Astros have the best record in all of baseball at 26-12. The Marlins have one of the worst records at 14-22. That does not bode well for the people of South Beach. Statistics say the Astros win two out of three in the series. I think today will be one of them for Houston. Astros stay hot and get the W today.
Braves (Colon) vs Blue Jays (Bolsinger)
All the Blue Jays needed to cure their woes was to play the Mariners. After a four game sweep of Seattle the Blue Jays are looking like a respectable team. Now they are facing another bad team in the Braves. Even ageless Bartolo Colon can’t lead them to a win today. The Blue Jays win their fifth in a row today.
Pick: Blue Jays
Mets (Wheeler) vs Diamondbacks (Godley)
The Mets need Zach Wheeler to get deep into this game. That is not something he has been very good at doing so far this year. I think that will continue today. He won’t make it past the fifth inning and the Mets will be forced into their struggling bullpen early again. I think that is what the Diamondbacks will use to get the win today.
White Sox (Pelfrey) vs Angels (Chavez)
Both of these teams are 4-8 in their last 12 games, so there is a lot of room for improvement. The White Sox need to get a quality outing from Pelfrey, who has yet to throw one this year. The Angels need to get their bats going from someone other than Mike Trout. I think that in this game the Angels bats will get going off Pelfrey and lead them to victory today.
Athletics (Manaea) vs Mariners (Gallardo)
After winning two games in Philadelphia and scoring 21 runs in doing so, the Mariners were swept by the Blue Jays in a four game series over the weekend. With all of the injuries the Mariners have endured to their starting staff, they really need their bats to carry them. They didn’t over the weekend. I think they will today and lead them to victory in the opener of the series against Oakland.
Brewers (Anderson) vs Padres (Perdomo)
One team is hot right now. One team is not. I am riding the hot hand here. Sometimes it really is that simple.
Dodgers (McCarthy) vs Giants (Cain)
In the magical run of 1995 the Mariners were dead in the water until one moment sparked them. It was a walk off home run by their best player in extra innings. They went on an amazing run after that and rode that all the way to the playoffs. I’m not saying the Giants will do that. I am saying that sometimes all you need is a little spark.
