We are both rooting for the Pirates...wish us luck!!!
Is it possible to go against Jake Arrieta and his HISTORIC second half run??? The entire free world is on the Cubs and Arrieta, and the line keeps rising. It's now up to -$135, and we understand why. Arrieta has allowed only 4 runs over the last 87 innings, which translates to a 0.41 ERA. And throw in a NO-NO back on August 30 against the Dodgers. He is 13-1 on the road, and 6-1 lifetime against the Pirates. No wonder everyone is betting Chicago like the game is over. Well, it AIN'T over. The Bucs have some pieces of their own, starting with Gerrit Cole. He's no Arrieta, but Cole has banked 19 wins, posted an awesome 2.60 ERA, is 9-3 at home, and 7-1 lifetime against the Cubbies. This will be the third straight year that this group of Pirates has been to the playoffs, so nobody is gonna be intimidated. And finally, two more words...ANDREW McCUTCHEN. Gimme half a Benjamin on Pittsburgh.
Had to eat a bagel last night as the Yankees fell to the Astros, 3-0. The bagel cost me half a Benj, and after pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$105 is the current MLB figure.
