Behind Enemy Lines in the MLB pennant race

Ok, this is Nicky and I’m still bitter about yesterday’s loss dropping us to 9-5 (just over even w/juice) so we’re going to get some of our cheese back and break one of our ‘constraints’ because as you know there are no “RULES” in what we do. That said, we are going to run it back and play the Giants (-220) against the Dbacks on the premise that they will not get swept at home. This has not happened all year and with the pressure of their Wild Card hopes (now 2.5 games out) taking a hit in a series that they almost surely penciled themselves winning if not sweeping. The Dbacks have Cain on the bump at 5-10, and I don’t seem him being able to shut the Giants offense down. If you’re looking to Par, check out the over at 7.5. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Yo, this is Nicky stepping back into the box after looking fastball and getting the deuce on that Reds call. My bad. So we’ve dropped to 9-4 but gave up a unit and a half because of the juice so we gotta get that back. Fortunately, the best thing to remedy a bad loss is a good win and there seems to be some good value on the board today, but as you know we only chose one, so I’m going with the Giants (-150) to beat the last place Diamondbacks. I’ve tried to find something wrong with this game as the Giants are a great home team, they have Zito on the bump going against Hudson who has only 6 starts to his credit, and it’s the type of matchup we’re looking for where one team has everything to lose going up against a club with nothing to gain. On the quant side San Francisco is 7-1 their last 8 games against Zona and 6-1 at home. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
