Interleague Madness Returns, Day 11

Curses! We lost one!

Well, I guess we're human, after all.

No biggie -- that loss does, however, snap our streak of EIGHT consecutive Paid Play winners, and drops us to a pitiful 10-2 on all plays over the last 8 days. Even more frightening, our Paid Play streak drops to just 22-9.

That was sarcasm, for those that were thinking about whether to ask if I was being serious. As you guys ALL know, it is impossible to win every single play, but darn it, we were doing our best job to try. Let's start a brand new powerhouse streak right now.

Interleague Play

Royals @ Nationals (-150) with a total of 9; B. Chen vs. L. Hernandez;
Wilson Betemit is 5-for-12 off Livan Hernandez with a HR and 2 RBI;
Jason Kendall is 3-for-7 off Hernandez since '05.
Has the collapse begun? Livan Hernandez is coming off his worst start of the season, by a longshot. The regression had to come, eventually, but do we think it lasts more than 1 game? Washington has been slumping pretty hard, but Kansas City got clobbered in Atlanta, as well.
Leans: ...

Reds @ Athletics (-119) with a total of 8; M. Leake vs. G. Gonzalez;
Both of these starters are coming off poor outings. In fact, both are coming off 2 poor outings. This opening number is pretty strongly pro-Athletic, in terms of the Reds strongest starter being a slight dog. I don't like choosing between struggling starters and trying to figure out who bounces back sooner, though I must admit, Gio's home numbers are pretty strong. Leake has great stuff, works quickly, but I can't see this kid maintaining his current amazingly low ERA. That being said, this ballpark (and the A's offense) can make a lot of pitchers look good.
Leans: ...

Yankees (-170) @ Diamondbacks with a total of 10.5; A. Burnett vs. R. Lopez;
Derek Jeter is batting .400 off Lopez with a HR and 3 RBI since '05.
Rodrigo Lopez has seen plenty of the Yanks, and he's 8-8 lifetime with a 5.90 ERA - not too impressive. A.J. Burnett is a tough cat to figure out, and he's been pretty bad since the middle of May. He's certainly a better fade candidate, though it's just tough to know what to expect with Arizona.
