In an effort to get back in the win column, I am doubling up on my beloved Yankees: Yankees +122 over Angels / Over 7.5 Bet $150 / $100 In yesterday’s contest, these two teams combined to score 17 runs on 25 hits.  There is no reason to suggest they won’t do the same tonight, especially since they were forced to use a combined 11 pitchers, weakening both bullpens.  Despite this offensive display, Dan Haren (2-5, 3.76 ERA) has the fourth-lowest run support average in the majors (2.23 runs).

Caption: Derek Jeter as Colonel Kurtz in production of ‘Apocalypse Now’ (pic)

“I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That’s my dream; that’s my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor… and surviving.” Seriously, that pic looks like a still straight out of the final scenes in Apocalypse Now. Derek Jeter looks positively Brando-esque. Okay, okay, actual caption: Derek [...]

Haren, not Richards, might start Angels' finale vs. Rangers
