    Maui, "bullpening" is all the rage now it seems. But the flaw in the bullpening logic is that relievers are relievers for a reason; the vast majority of relievers don't have good enough stuff to be starters.

    Its devastating when your team is up by 2-3 runs going into the 8th or 9th and your team's relief or closer gives up 3-4 runs to lose the game. I had it happen to me so many times in this short period since MLB started then almost all of last year.

    Take the Diamondback and the Rockies tonight. Diamondback up by 2 runs going into the top of the 9th. What happens, of course the Diamondbacks give up 3 runs and lose the game.

    Speaking of that, it looks like Phillies bullpen is melting down right now......Phillies were an early lean for me today, too, but I got off them.

    See this is what I'm talking about. Who can handicap that into a game.

    Pens always a factor but Obviously you can't.. the beauty of baseball is my goal isn't to know the outcome of any particular game, it to continually take plus money on teams that put themselves into position to and have good opportunity to win. You do that enough times a day/week over the course of a season you should fare pretty well..

    Maui, just so there's no confusion, if I say something is a lean it means I'm looking at it. But until I post the team name with the odds it's not a play.

    My God man, you're playing with a loaded revolver on this pick. Royals can't hit the ball off a tee right now. Good luck, Twins have a bad bullpen...that might help.

    A 2-2 game in the bottom of the 8th until the Cubs started playing like a girls team.

    A win nonetheless.
