    Fabulous day yesterday, going 8-3 and winning over 15 stars.
    Here is today’s early play, with more to come tonight.

    Baseball Overall (12-5, +12.39*)
    Baseball Sides (7-3, +11.04*)
    2* Braves +143

    Baseball Totals (5-2, +1.35*)
    Leaning towards the under in the Braves, but no official play.

    Here are mine for today. Look a lot like the last two days:

    3.5 units Toronto(Bush) over New York Yankees(Mussina) @ +230 @ 5Dimes or Pinnacle

    5.5 units New York Mets(Seo) over Arizona(Russ Ortiz) @ -129 @ Pinnacle

    3 units Kansas City(Carrasco) over Boston(Clement) @ +210 @ Hollywood

    2.5 units Pittsburgh(Kip Wells) over St. Louis(Carpenter) @ +190 @ VIP, BetJam, 5 Dimes, Canbet or Bowmans

    1 unit Cleveland(Elarton) over Tampa Bay(McClung) @ -132 @ Pinnacle or Canbet

    1.5 units Colorado(B.H. Kim) over Los Angeles Dodgers(Houlton) @ +146 @ 5Dimes or Pinnacle


    As Greg Roberts would say in reference to Cleveland and the Mets, "we play with streaks, not against them".... Good luck to everyone.

    Yeah, you can only lose once, but win a lot that way. Good call on the Mets last night E. Is your Toronto play more on the strength of Bush or against Mussina?

    Razz,

    Against Mussina. Personally, I don't think the Yankees are better than the Jays. I'm betting against the Sweep. So, I guess, I only quote Greg Roberts when it suits me.....


    Seriously though, I think the Yankee pitching staff is an absolute mess right now and I think keeping the Jays to 2 runs per game in the last two games has got to come to an end. I think they hop all over the Moose.

    Thanks, Ebone. The reason I asked is I was considering the under, and was thinking maybe Bush would be able to hold the Yankees down a little. We ended up passing, but here are the rest of today's plays. I left the early winner on here to make record-keeping easier.

    Baseball Overall (12-5, +12.39*)

    Baseball Sides (7-3, +11.04*)
    2* Braves +143
    5* White Sox -129
    4* Texas -135
    2* Angels -115
    2* Astros Even
    2* Detroit -139
    1* Phillies -114
    1* Cardinals -1.5 -120

    Baseball Totals (5-2, +1.35*)
    3* Dodgers Over 8 -115
    2* Phillies Over 8.5 Even
    2* Baltimore Under 8.5 -130

    No play on Texas due to pitching change.

    Never mind, Illusion, Dominguez did end up starting. ESPN was showing Young as Texas's starter about 10 minutes before gametime, but I looked in my canbet account and was pleasantly surprised to see there was no change. To make it easier from now on, I'll list the pitchers in parentheses.

    EBone, if KC doesn't win, it would be a complete joke. They've had the bases loaded with one out three times and failed to score each time. At least Boston has Arragyo in the game now.

    Razz,

    I saw that with the Royals. It's always a bit dicey taking the Royals but that was just a little too stressful. I had to turn it off after seeing that.
