King Of The Nighttime World
A little bit later than normal today because I could.  No late games from the west coast last night gave me plenty of time to get most of my research for tonight's schedule done before midnight, so I decided to take a nice, long break for...

The game has a way of being a very humbling experience sometimes.  Nothing went as planned, or as it should have yesterday for me.  It seemed to be a question of mental toughness.  For the Rays, they gave up the lead, got back to within...

Ride The Wind
The Force is strong in this one.  I'm not omniscient, but the instincts are running at a very high level right now.  There's no other way to explain why I would "spit on" games involving the 2 best pitchers in baseball in...

Some tense moments late in the game in Arlington last night, but Skipper Mike Scioscia was able to pull the right strings with his pen and hang on for the win.  Things are certainly breaking right. One of the things I talked about with the...

It's all falling into place right now.  I'm getting my wins.  The Royals are red hot and acting like they don't want to give up 1st place.  Yes, everything's just peachy, and that's all there is to say about it. ...

Scratched Out
Things didn't line up right in that 1st game in Cleveland yesterday afternoon.  The pitching matchup didn't go as it was listed in the morning, so not only will that game not show up in my overall tally from yesterday's post, but I was...

Cool The Engines
A bit of a cool down last night with the Cardinals.  I've still hit on 8 of my last 11 plays, so there's no reason to panic at all.  It's kind of a shame though.  The Redbirds are just feeble on offense.  When Mark...

Ride Captain Ride
It was like pulling teeth with the Twins last night.  But in the end, it was like an old western movie.  The hero rides in on his white stallion and saves the day.  Welcome back, Joe Mauer.  What took you so long? We've flown...

Very Bad Things
Yes I know.  The Mets/Phillies game is already well underway, and I haven't seen it from the start.  That's the worst thing ever, I know, but I have to say:  After that 19-inning game on Saturday night, I needed the rest.  I...

That's The Way Of The World
The Pirates just couldn't get it done last night.  It's not like they didn't have any chances to do so.  There were plenty of those.  They just didn't quite get what they needed when they needed it.  Liriano had a...

Keepin' The Faith
Okay, so now there's one absolute in life:  I will not bet against my Royals for the rest of this season until they're eliminated from postseason contention.  That doesn't mean I expect them to be eliminated anytime soon.  I...

Rubberband Man
Strong rebound for me yesterday with the trifecta.  It's not in my nature to get loud about my greatness.  That's up to you to decide from the results I get.  The proof has always been in the pudding over the entire time I've...

Bad Company
Yesterday was a total gut punch, but we know going in that there are going to be days like that in this biz.  The White Sox were simply horrid.  With their ace on the bump and a chance to win a series against a bad team, they played like a...

Razor's Edge
The kid made one mistake in Minnesota last night, and it cost him.  You hang one too many curve balls to a big guy, and they turn into big flies.  That was all it took.  Other than that, it was just your ordinary, average white-knuckle,...

Young And Rich
The danger was great when making the move on GRich and the Halos last night.  The Tigers game was still up in the air, and I knew if Detroit went on to lose, which they did, I would be on the hook to possibly go 0-3 to start the week.  Once...

Everyone who follows the game is well aware of the "shutdown inning".  That's when a team scores on offense, and when they go out on defense in the next half inning, they shut their opponent down and don't allow them to...

Risky Business
If you went ahead a took the Mets and Tigers last night as I suggested, you're welcome.  If you didn't, I don't blame you.  For me, with the A's win already in my hip pocket for the day and a nice profit for the week already...

Critical Mass
It's really not as bad as today's title would seem to indicate, but Calgary coughing up a comfortable 4th quarter lead at home last night was a bit of a killer.  I don't want to give the impression that I wouldn't be on any of the...

Hold The Line
I got a little :"cute" with the Padres yesterday and paid the price for it, but it's all good in the end.  The Royals completed this last little stretch of games that I told you was very important for them with a nice win over the...

Skin Trade
So, here we go.  The big trade deadline in baseball is today.  Obviously, the biggest trades made so far have been Valencia from the Royals for the Jays' Kratz and Hendricks, or Felix Doubront from the Red Sox to the Cubs for the...
