July is turning into a struggle for your humble game picker. Three straight negative days
have now gone by and the Game of the Day feature is on a five game losing streak. Here is
an idea. How about shutting Stephen Strasburg down now until the hot season has passed
and then use him later in the season when it is cooler outside? Here is another idea for an
inner note: Don't pick the Astros! Duh! That was probably the dumbest pick. But there were
a lot on the bad side of the register. The Angels did not win. The Cardinals did not win. The
Rangers did not win. The Dodgers did not win. Barry Zito won. Geezum Pete!
This picker is up way too early to do this today, but it is a special day. The biggest local golf
tournament begins today and let's hope that goes as good as the picks today. And the
Fan's mom turns 86 today. She was born in 1926. Imagine all the things she has seen in her
lifetime! Happy Birthday, Mom! Wish this picker was there to celebrate with you.
