You know a picking day has gone bad when Heath Bell blows another save for the Marlins and you need a Todd Helton dramatic late homer just to finish the day a game under .500. So many things went wrong that a post would be needed just to list them all. But this picker overslept this morning and if today's picks don't hurry up and write themselves, then some of today's games will start before they even get out there.
Perhaps that is a blessing. With no time to mull over yesterday's blunders, here are Sunday's picks:
The Blue Jays over the Orioles: This pick has been wrong all weekend. So why keep making it? The Blue Jays are the better team but home cooking has soured an early good start. Today we have to pick between two starters that can't throw strikes in Brian Matusz and Kyle Drabek. At least in their first starts, Drabek lasted more than five innings compared to Matusz's three plus. So the pick goes that way.
The Marlins over the Astros: Again, this pick has been wrong...
