Cardinals

Last nights pick ended our hot streak, I guess we gave Brad Penny to much credit for what he did in the past. We will give credit to Jeff Francis “The Canadian Boy” for pitching a gem on the road. He reminded me of the pitcher he was last year. Hopefully, when the Rockies fianlly become healthy they can start playing the way they did last year.

Todays pick were taking the St. Louis Caridnals (-118). The pitching matchup Cardinals Wellemeyer (6-1, 3.16) vs Nationals Lannan (4-5, 3.52).

Again were going with the away favorite it seems to be a trend in our picks lately, but will go with whats working for us. The Cardinals are 5-0 this year against the struggling and injured Nationals. The Cardinals are also 5-0 against National League East opponents, while the Nationals are 8-10 against Central teams. The Nationals also have a losing record at going 13-16, while the Cardinals are 14-12 on the road.

Pitching Notes

  • Wellemeyer is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a save in seven relief appearances against Washington (24-35).
  • Lannan’s only career start against the Cardinals on April 6 resulted in a 3-0 loss as he allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings.
