Baseball Best Plays
OK - I took the gas pipe yesterday going 0-3. I thought taking home dogs on Opening Day was worth the risk but on reflection - the only bet I might make again was the Philly wager.
I didn't know Nomar would be out of the line-up and I didn't know headcase Derek Lowe had other things on his mind. I thought Hudson would have trouble against the Dodgers and was right. If I knew about Lowe's issues - I would have taken the over.
The A's just got smoked by the Yankees. I knew Zito has had trouble against the Yankees (he is now 1-6 in 9 starts with a combined ERA of 6.61 including yesterday since 2003 against the Yankees) but I thought the fastball hitting A's lineup was worth the risk.
Today I'm taking the over (9 runs) in the White Sox / Indians game - $50 to win $43.48
Astros over Marlins - $50 to win $22
Red Sox over Rangers - $50 to win $50
Red Sox / Rangers over 11 runs - $50 to win $47.62
Total for season - 1 for 4 for minus $102.38
