We are now on a 10-4 MLB POD run and 46-30 on the season for mlb sports picks. Tuesday's card has a total of seven pitchers who are pitching well with ERA's under 3.00 over their last three starts combined and a total of eight pitchers who have ERA's over 6.00. There is one pitcher we have as the featured pitcher that sticks out and we are making it our free play of the day.
Phillies -139 (1.5* FREE PLAY)
The Phillies are currently putting up some runs with a 7-2 lead in the 4th inning on Monday and I think that will continue on Tuesday when they face Eric Bedard who has an ERA over 6 on the road this year. However, the main reason we like the Phillies as our play of the day is the man starting for the men in red pinstripes. Vance Worley has been pretty consistent thus far in his career and right now he's on a roll despite his team going 0-3 in his last three starts he has a 0.90 WHIP and a 1.35 ERA. He goes up against the worst RHP hitting team in the majors as the Pirates are dead last with a .647 OPS vs. RHP. I equate OPS to the ability to score runs. It combines power and the ability to get on base and the Pirates can't do either as they are 30th in total walks for the year.
Speaking of walks, Eric Bedard is having all kinds of control issues walking nearly 4 batters per game and the Phillies are not nearly as bad as the Pirates at scoring runs. The Pirates are just 8-24 in their last 32 visits to Philadelphia and part of the reason is it's known as a hitters ball park and the Pirates really can not compete in that type of game. They are also losing 70% of their games over their last 200 vs. a RH starter on the road going 61-135.
Notable Hot Starters:
Justin Masterson (2-1, 0.65 WHIP, 0.39 ERA)
C.J. Wilson (3-0, 1.22 WHIP, 2.11 ERA)
Tim Hudson (2-1, 1.15 WHIP, 2.25 ERA)
Kyle Lohse (1-2, 1.02 WHIP, 1.66 ERA)
Travis Blackley (2-1, 1.02 WHIP, 2.89 ERA)
Ryan Vogelsong (2-1, 0.92 WHIP, 2.49 ERA)
Cold Starter Of The Day:
Though this is not going to be any sort of a sports pick that is backed by our sports monitor we still like to give out the cold pitcher with the best shot at winning because often times there is a lot of value. Today's pitcher is Dice K despite his 6.06 ERA over his last three starts since coming back from injury he has dominated the Blue Jays. In 98 AB the Blue Jays have a .409 OPS against him while the Red Sox have a .309 average and .793 OPS vs. Aaron Laffey and are #2 in OPS vs. LHP.
Notable Cold Starters:
Brian Matusz (0-3, 2.43 WHIP, 8.03 ERA)
Daniel Hudson (2-1, 1.97 WHIP, 11.37 ERA)
Carlos Zambrano (0-3, 2.79 WHIP, 13.50 ERA)
Bruce Chen (1-2, 1.54 WHIP, 7.30 ERA)
Liam Hendricks (0-3, 2.11 WHIP, 8.03 ERA)
Javier Vargas (0-3, 1.80 WHIP, 9.33 ERA)
Randy Wells (0-3, 2.19 WHIP, 6.57 ERA)
Barry Zito (0-3, 2.16 WHIP, 10.67 ERA)
