Las Vegas -
Is this the GREATEST baseball hat EVER??? Discuss...
If I said to you, 6'10", scary left-handed string bean of a pitcher with more strikeouts than innings pitched, you would probably come back at me with Randy Johnson. Since Randy has retired, it's Chris Sale, he's just 6'6", but looks like 6'10" on the hill, that has stepped into that space. Sale is 8-1 this season with a sweet 2.08 ERA. He has gobbled up 95 innings and has 102 K's. His record at home is a stout 6-1, and he's MY guy. His opposition, Jeremy Guthrie, is sitting at 5-8, but it's his last two outings that have really sent up a red flag, a VERY RED flag. Guthrie has been RIPPED for 19 hits and 14 earned runs over the last 8 innings. That's a BLOATED 15.75 ERA, and another reason why I'll drop half a Benjamin on the White Sox.
A little bookeeping to handle from the British Open. Popped a $10 spot on nine guys, and almost made the big score with Rickie Fowler at 40/1, but he didn't quite have enough steam. That was a $90 spot of red ink, but we offset it with a sweet win by the Pirates yesterday, 5-3 over the Rockies. The W was worth half a Benj. After doing the math, and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1820 is the current figure.
And for all my baseball fanatics, we're leaning to the Pirates this evening.
