“This NL Central shit is easy”–Theo Epstein

I think its pretty obvious that Epstein is reversing whatever curses exist here with the Cubs.  He is basically Ghost Busting the shit out of Wrigley Field.  Sign solid outfielder with super hot wife…check.  League MVP and rival Ryan Braun suspended for 50 games…check.  Albert Pujols out of Division and National League…double check.  Epstein is on FIRE this winter.  A couple more moves and a culture change…then get ready for a fun summer on the North Side.

Lock of the Century: MLB Edition

June 9, 2011 4 comments

Betting on baseball is so easy its unbelievable.  No wonder Pete Rose couldn’t resist.  Its like somebody giving you cash for being able to read or something.  I killed it yesterday.  Cubs had lost 8 in a row.  Their losing streak had no end in sight, except I saw it from a mile away.  Cubs were big winners.  For kicks I gave the citizens the Brewers win and the over…win and win.  The day before I gave you the road dog Red Sox to win 2 of 3 games on the series bet…and that cashed in too.  Just picking winners like its my job, good thing it is. I picked the Miami Heat in my NBA Lock of the Century, and I am pretty much hoping I lose that one so I am making up for it with baseball.

Seattle Mariners +168 @ Detroit Tigers -188

This one isn’t exactly brain surgery.  Terrible Mariners team on the road taking on one of the most dominant pitchers in the game. Verlander will probably have double-digit strike outs and breeze to a win.  The line isn’t the most attractive, but a win is a win is a win.  Also, I have never heard of this Fister guy pitching for Seattle.  One of my gambling rules is that if I have never heard of you, it means that you suck. Tigers roll.

Oakland A’s even @ Chicago White Sox -110

Honestly, the only game I really love on the board is the Tigers game, but you can’t win if you don’t play and I am on fire right now.  Playing with house money.  Give me the White Sox at home with Buerhle pitching.  Seems like a solid pick.  Decent moneyline for the favorite at home.  Good enough for me.  I am just going to keep racking up wins.

Chicago Cubs +127 @ Cincinnati Reds -137

Not a lot of science to this one.  Law of averages says that the Cubs have to win eventually, right?  I’ll take Dempster pitching with all the good karma the Cubs probably got for drafting a Gretzky yesterday. 

New York Mets +145 @ Milwaukee Brewers -160

The Brewers are on fire since Corey Hart returned from a DL stint and the Mets are just awful.  Randy Wolfe is good enough to keep the Mets at bay until the Brewer bats wear down and beat down Pelfrey.  I also like the over in this game. Brewers could get there by themselves tonight.
