Sick of Breaking Even

Good evening, all! I'm in downtown Detroit, spending the night in Medical Student housing near the Henry Ford, 20-story behemoth of a hospital, so unfortunately I need to camp out in the lobby to get internet. I wanted to get this post started tonight so all my loyal and handsome readers would know why my work tomorrow will be in small chunks (as opposed to my usual day-long adventures on Pregame). For those who followed me yesterday, we suffered/enjoyed another .500 day, going 2-2-1, losing the juice. I apologize, since I really felt that 4 of the 5 selections we made yesterday were DAMN GOOD ones. The Mets/Nats Under lost in truly disgusting fashion. Seven runs scored in the bottom of the 8th and 9th innings turned 4 combined scores (and a 4.5 run cushion) into a disastrous 11-run total, and a sickening loss. Still, the Rays covered the Run Line behind another gutsy performance from James Shields, Atlanta and Florida somehow managed to push across more than 7.5 runs, and if we forget for a moment that I suggested a play on the Cubbies RL (idiotic, truly), we managed to come out of that mess in one piece. Today, we take the leap from holding steady to dominance! Oh, and feel free to call me a jackass, vent, ask questions, whatever you like!!

NL
Chris Carpenter, Matt Holliday
- Is this the day the Cards snap out of their coasting funk? Carpenter is 3-0 against the Reds this year with a 1.57 ERA, and Holliday is 8-for-15 with 3 homers lifetime off Kip Wells, but only time will tell.
Chris Dickerson - Activated from the DL to give the Reds 8 outfielders on their roster, Dickerson brings with him a 5-for-10 career mark against ace Chris Carpenter.
Tim Lincecum, Freddy Lewis - Lincecum has been an absolute steamroller against the D'backs, throwing 16 innings in 2 starts and holding them to a single run with 25 strikeouts and just 1 walk; Freddy Lewis, though he'll likely just pinch-hit, has the most success of any Giant against Danny Haren, going 8-for-19 in his career.
Carlos Lee - El Caballo has a solid 6-for-16 lifetime mark off Cliff Lee with 2 homers and 4 RBI.
Reed Johnson, Aramis Ramirez, So Taguchi - There's almost zero reason to even consider dealing with this game from a betting standpoint, though Reed Johnson is a career 5-for-9 man against Paul Maholm; Ramirez is 8-for-20 with 2 homers, and Taguchi, wherever he may be sitting on the Cubs bench, is 7-for-17.

AL
Orlando Cabrera, Brendan Harris
- A couple of Twinkies with success against Nate Robertson, Cabrera is 8-for-20 lifetime, and Harris is 7-for-19 with 2 homers.
Carlos Guillen, Magglio Ordonez, Marcus Thames - An interesting trifecta, considering the usual suspects are missing; still, the Tigers have hit Scott Baker hard this year, led by Guillen's 11-for-25 mark with a homer, Ordonez's 16-for-36 with 2 homers, and Thames' 9-for-27 with FIVE homers in the past.
Hank Blalock, Marlon Byrd, Ian Kinsler, Michael Young - Though the Rangers have seemingly given up all hope (for good reason), there's reason to be optimistic for fantasy owners -- all four of these guys are batting over .360 lifetime against John Lackey with a combined 7 homers.
Vladimir Guerrero, Torii Hunter, Kendry Morales, Mike Napoli, Juan Rivera - Again, tough to know who is going to be in the starting lineup as the Angels get ready for the postseason, but all 5 of these Halos have crushed Kevin Millwood in the past, 4 of the 5 with averages over .400 against him.
Matt Garza - Garza is 6-0 against Baltimore in 7 career starts, and this season he is 1-0, allowing 2 runs in 8 innings while holding the O's to a team BA of just .148.
Mike Sweeney - Somehow, Sweeney has seen Brett Anderson 12 times this year, and he's 6-of-12 with a solo homer mixed in - tough to know who is going to win this contest, though, like with all the others, the home team has a huge advantage at the end of the year.
