Final Day Of June

The final day of June is finally here and thank god this month is finally over. Utley only had 1 hit but it works all the same. Altuve had another great game and every time he faces a lefty I will be picking him no matter what or who it is. I’m back on the board and hopefully I can keep it today on the last day of the month. I’m hoping to start July off on the right foot. The current BTS leader is still at 33 after not making a pick yesterday. This is the last day I’m doing Double Down. Last day of June and will be doing 1 in July. Let’s get to it.

Recap Of June 29th

Miguel Cabrera-

Miguel Cabrera- 0 for 4

I called it with Miggy. I said be careful with him because Houston shifts the most in MLB and once again he went hitless against Houston. He was hitless for the series.

Jacoby Ellsbury-

Jacoby Ellsbury- 0 for 4

Didn’t do anything and I thought he would for sure.

Chase Utley- 1 for 5

Got a hit in his next to last at bat and it was his only hit of the game. Was my Sleeper Pick and the first half of my Double Down.

Manny Machado-

Continues to rake against lefties and had another great game this month. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Current Record: 60-25-5- I’m doing better with the sleepers than with my own picks after Utley came through.

Pick To Avoid For June 30th

Asdrubal Cabrera

is somebody who I wouldn’t even look at for tonight against

My Pick(s) For June 30th

Adam Jones

Adam Jones

is my first pick for tonight against

Joe Saunders

Joe Saunders

Victor Martinez

Victor Martinez

is my second pick for tonight against

Scott Kazmir

and Oakland. Martinez has 6 hits for a .429 average against Oakland so far this season. Martinez has 45 hits for a .306 average at home so far this season.

Other Potentials For June 30th

Jacoby Ellsbury

Jacoby Ellsbury

is a great pick for tonight but I would be careful either way against Chris Archer and Tampa Bay. Ellsbury has 12 hits for a .387 average against Tampa Bay so far this season. Ellsbury has 7 hits for a .700 average against Archer in his career so far. Ellsbury has 1 hit for a .333 average against Archer so far this season. Ellsbury has 85 hits for a .285 average so far this season. Ellsbury didn’t do anything last night and he could have a great game tonight or he could struggle again since the numbers are too good.

Adrian Beltre

Adrian Beltre

is definitely somebody who I would look at for tonight against Ubaldo Jimenez and Baltimore. Beltre has 7 hits for a .583 average against Baltimore so far this season. Beltre has 8 hits for a .400 average against Jimenez in his career so far. Beltre has 2 hits for a .667 average against Jimenez so far this season. Beltre has 85 hits for a .332 average so far this season. Beltre has 12 hits for a .600 average over the last 7 days. Beltre has been raking this month and I think that will continue and he will get a hit off of Jimenez tonight.

Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman

is another pick I feel will have a good game Zack Wheeler and the Mets. Freeman has 11 hits for a .423 average against the Mets so far this season. Freeman has 6 hits for a .545 average against Wheeler in his career so far. Freeman has 2 hits for a .400 average against Wheeler so far this season. Freeman has 92 hits for a .291 average so far this season. Freeman has 8 hits for a .320 average over the last 7 days. Freeman rakes against the Mets and hits Wheeler well and I think that will continue and he will get at least one hit tonight.

Luis Valbuena

Luis Valbuena

is somebody who I would look at if he starts tonight against Jake Peavy and Boston. Valbuena has 7 hits for a .259 average in Interleague Play so far this season. Valbuena has 6 hits for a .462 average against Peavy in his career so far. Valbuena had 2 hits for a 1.000 average against Peavy last season. Valbuena has 60 hits for a .271 average so far this season. Valbuena has 5 hits for a .278 average over the last 7 days. Valbuena should start tonight and I think he will get a hit off of Peavy tonight.

My other potentials went 1-2-0 yesterday. Braun had a great game and he would of been a great pick. Good luck to all and hopefully we will go on a run.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

I Didn’t See That One Coming

I didn’t see that coming at all. That was something I did not expect to happen. Tomlin wasn’t pitching well at all lately but he pitched a gem last night and he shut down my second pick and I was surprised. This is why BTS is so hard this year with games like that that look like sure things. The current BTS leader is at 33 after not  making a pick but they will fall and I’m hoping to end June with a streak. It’s the best I can do. Let’s do it.

Recap Of June 28th

Robinson Cano- 0 for 3

Robinson Cano- 0 for 3

Cano didn’t get a hit but most of Seattle hitters didn’t. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Jonathan Lucroy- 3 for 4

Jonathan Lucroy- 3 for 4

Lucroy had another great game and he is raking.

Alex Rios- DNP- Day Off

Alex Rios- DNP- Day Off

Rios was given a day off and I don’t know why since he was raking against Hughes. Was my Sleeper Pick.

Ryan Zimmerman- 0 for 5

Ryan Zimmerman- 0 for 5

Didn’t do anything against Samardzija as usual. Was my Pick To Avoid.

Matt Adams- 1 for 4

Matt Adams- 1 for 4

Hit in his first at bat and continues to rake against righties. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Recommended Picks By MLB For June 29th

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

has great numbers against

Scott Feldman

Scott Feldman

and Houston. The only problem is that the Astros will shift on him every at bat as long as their are no men on base so I would be very careful just in case. Miggy has 5 hits for a .192 average against Houston so far this season. Miggy has 51 hits for a .321 average on the road so far this season. Miggy has 32 hits for a .276 average during the day so far this season. Miggy has 27 hits for a .281 average in June so far this season.

Miggy had 2 hits for a .667 average when he last faced Feldman in 2012. Miggy has 94 hits for a .315 average so far this season. Miggy has 7 hits for a .269 average over the last 7 days. Miggy is a great choice I think but the fact that he has gone hitless over the last 2 days because of the shift makes me be careful with him. Scott Feldman is making his 14th start of the season for Houston and his first and only start of the season against Detroit today. Feldman has given up 43 hits for a .265 BAA at home so far this season. Feldman has given up 15 hits for a .278 BAA during the day so far this season. Feldman has given up 26 hits for a .271 BAA in June so far this season. Feldman has given up 40 hits for a .263 BAA righties so far this season. Feldman has given up 74 hits for a .264 BAA so far this season. Feldman has given up 4 hits for a .182 BAA over the last 7 days. Feldman has pitched well lately and like I said I would be careful with Miggy just in case.

Jacoby Ellsbury

is somebody who I would look at for tonight against

John Lackey

John Lackey

and Boston. Ellsbury has 13 hits for a .361 average against Boston so far this season. Ellsbury has 40 hits for a .317 average at home so far this season. Ellsbury has 56 hits for a .276 average at night so far this season. Ellsbury has 32 hits for a .330 average in June so far this season.

Ellsbury has been raking and I think that will continue tonight against Lackey.

Lackey has given up 47 hits for a .267 BAA on the road so far this season. Lackey has given up 82 hits for a .264 BAA at night so far this season.

Lackey has given up 107 hits for a .258 BAA so far this season. Lackey has given up 7 hits for a .412 BAA over the last 7 days. Lackey has gotten rocked lately and I think he will give up at least one hit to Ellsbury tonight.

Sleeper Pick For June 29th

Chase Utley

Chase Utley

is a great pick I think for today against

I Knew That

I knew that Houston was the team that shifts the most in MLB but I still went with a Tiger knowing that and I paid for it and my streak ended near 4 again. This is getting very boring but I am going to get something going. This horrible month is almost over and I’m glad to see July on it’s way. The current BTS leader is at 34 after going with Puig but they will fall in due time. Let’s do it.

Pick To Avoid For June 28th

Ryan Zimmerman

Ryan Zimmerman

is somebody who I would definitely avoid for tonight in Game 2 against

Jeff Samardzija

May Be Turning A Corner

I may be turning a corner in BTS now. I had to wait until the last at bat for Adams to get his hit but he did get a hit off of a rightie. Adams is still raking against righties and he is a good pick against righties. The current BTS leaders are at 33 but they will fall in time like all the rest have before. Let’s do it.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Miggy Came Through

Miggy came through last night against Joe Saunders and Texas. He still isn’t hitting lefties but he did get a hit and that is all that matters and my streak is still in tact where a person who I pick goes hitless the next day they get a hit and that happened again with Miggy. The current BTS leaders are at 32 after 1 went with Victor and the other went with Miggy but they will and it could happen tonight. Let’s do it.

Another Right Pick Went Hitless

Another correct pick went hitless last night when Miggy didn’t get a hit off of Lewis. Lewis pitched a great game until the 7th inning when he was spanked and Miggy still went hitless. That means he will get multiple hits tonight since he was hitless last night. Double Down sucks and I’m only doing 1 a day from here on out. I picked two every day this month and I have gotten more wrong than right so 1 is the way to go. The current BTS leaders are at 31 but their time is coming. Let’s do it.

Recap Of June 24th

Miguel Cabrera- 0 for 4

Miguel Cabrera- 0 for 4

He was the right pick against Lewis and Lewis was getting rocked at home but he did nothing at all. Tigers had 16 hits as a team and he didn’t get any of them. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Robinson Cano-

Robinson Cano- 1 for 4

Cano did get a hit and he is raking right now still.

Brett Gardner- 2 for 5

Brett Gardner- 2 for 5

The streak is in tact where the batter I pick gets multiple hits the next day when he goes hitless. I won’t get a streak that but I will because all bad things must come to an end. Was my Sleeper Pick.

Denard Span- 1 for 4

Denard Span- 1 for 4

Did get a hit and thought he wouldn’t. Was my Pick To Avoid.

Victor Martinez- 2 for 4

Victor Martinez- 2 for 4

Had another great game against Lewis. Was the second half of my Double Down but it didn’t matter.

Recommended Picks By MLB For June 25th

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

is the perfect pick for tonight against

Joe Saunders

Joe Saunders

and Texas. Miggy has 7 hits for a .333 average against Texas so far this season. Miggy has 46 hits for a .326 average on the road so far this season. Miggy has 57 hits for a .337 average at night so far this season. Miggy has 22 hits for a .282 average in June so far this season. Miggy has 15 hits for a .227 average against lefties so far this season. Miggy has 6 hits for a .353 average against Saunders in his career so far. Miggy had 1 hit for a .333 average against Saunders last season. Miggy has 89 hits for a .318 average so far this season. Miggy has 7 hits for a .304 average over the last 7 days. Miggy was one of the Tigers who went hitless last night when the Tigers had 16 hits as a team and it was depressing. Joe Saunders is making 7th start of the season for Texas and his first and only start of the season against Detroit tonight. Saunders has given up 17 hits for a .354 average at home so far this season. Saunders has given up 39 hits for a .348 BAA at night so far this season. Saunders has given up 35 hits for a .368 BAA in June so far this season. Saunders has given up 31 hits for a .333 BAA righties so far this season. Saunders has given up 46 hits for a .346 BAA so far this season. Saunders has given up 10 hits for a .435 BAA over the last 7 days. I think Miggy will rake tonight because he rarely goes hitless two days in a row but he isn’t hitting lefties but against Saunders I think he will get a hit tonight.

Troy Tulowitzki

Troy Tulowitzki

could struggle today against

Marco Gonzales

Marco Gonzales

and St. Louis. Tulowitzki has 1 hit for a .143 average against St. Louis so far this season. Tulowitzki has 58 hits for a .457 average at home so far this season. Tulowitzki has 24 hits for a .348 average during the day so far this season. Tulowitzki has 28 hits for a .359 average in June so far this season. Tulowitzki has 27 hits for a .403 average against lefties so far this season. Tulowitzki has never faced Gonzales so he may struggle today. Tulowitzki has 90 hits for a .354 average so far this season. Tulowitzki has 6 hits for a .286 average over the last 7 days. Tulowitzki has been raking this season at home and during the day and against lefties so he could have a great game but I think he will struggle against a pitcher he has never seen before. Marco Gonzales is making his first career start today in the majors and against Colorado which is coming in Coors Field and I think he will pitch well since they have never seen him before but he could get spanked. No stats at all for him yet.

Sleeper Pick For June 25th

Omar Infante

Omar Infante

is a pick I think will have a good game tonight against

Dan Haren

Dan Haren

and the Dodgers. Infante has 2 hits for a .222 average against the Dodgers so far this season. Infante has 26 hits for a .245 average at home so far this season. Infante has 32 hits for a .221 average at night so far this season. Infante has 20 hits for a .230 average in June so far this season. Infante has 43 hits for a .265 average against righties so far this season. Infante has 10 hits for a .556 average against Haren in his career so far. Infante had 3 hits for a 1.000 average against Haren last season. Infante has 56 hits for a .246 average so far this season. Infante has 5 hits for a .208 average over the last 7 days so he isn’t hitting great at all but I think he will rake against Haren tonight. Dan Haren is making his 16th start of the season for the Dodgers and his first and only start of the season against Kansas City tonight. Haren has given up 53 hits for a .279 BAA on the road so far this season. Haren has given up 60 hits for a .250 BAA at night so far this season. Haren has given up 24 hits for a .255 BAA in June so far this season. Haren has given up 59 hits for a .296 BAA righties so far this season. Haren has given up 99 hits for a .271 BAA so far this season. Haren has given up 5 hits for a .227 BAA over the last 7 days. Haren has been pitching well lately but I think he will get raked by Infante and he will give up at least one hit Infante tonight.

Current Record: 56-25-4- Gardner had a multi hit game against Buehrle when he went hitless the night before.

Pick To Avoid For June 25th

Adam Dunn

Adam Dunn

is somebody who I wouldn’t even touch for tonight against

Ubaldo Jimenez

Ubaldo Jimenez

and Baltimore. Dunn has 0 hits in 3 at bats against Baltimore so far this season. Dunn has 24 hits for a .242 average on the road so fa far this season. Dunn has 35 hits for a .259 average at night so far this season. Dunn has 15 hits for a .231 average in June so far this season. Dunn has 43 hits for a .242 average against righties so far this season. Dunn has 5 hits for a .156 average against Jimenez in his career so far. Dunn had 0 hits in 6 at bats against Jimenez last season. Dunn has 50 hits for a .228 average so far this season. Dunn has 3 hits for a .150 average over the last 7 days. Dunn hasn’t been hitting and he should start tonight against Jimenez and I think he will do nothing. Ubaldo Jimenez is making his 16th start of the season for Baltimore and his first start of the season against the White Sox tonight. Jimenez has given up 33 hits for a .252 BAA at home so far this season. Jimenez has given up 44 hits for a .206 BAA at night so far this season. Jimenez has given up 15 hits for a .227 BAA in June so far this season. Jimenez has given up 39 hits for a .247 BAA lefties so far this season. Jimenez has given up 76 hits for a .250 BAA so far this season. Jimenez has given up 6 hits for a .286 BAA over the last 7 days. Jimenez hasn’t pitched well lately but he has pitched well this season and I think he will shut down Dunn tonight.

Current Record: 27-49-9- Span got a hit in his first at bat of the game which isn’t what I was expecting.

My Pick(s) For June 25th

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

is my only pick for tonight against

Joe Saunders

Joe Saunders

and Texas. He went hitless last night and will get at least one hit tonight. For all stats see Recommended Picks above.

Current Record: 40-47- Bad year so far but hoping to change that in the next 7 days.

Double Down Record: 30-44- Miggy was the one who cost me last night but he will get at least one hit tonight.

Current Average: 173 for 610 for .284

Current Streak: 0- Been at 0 for the last 3 days but I know I will get something going tonight.

Other Potentials For June 25th

Joey Votto

Joey Votto

is definitely a pick I would look at for tonight against Edwin Jackson and the Cubs. Votto has 4 hits for a .167 average against the Cubs so far this season. Votto has 8 hits for a .381 average against Jackson in his career so far. Votto has 2 hits for a .400 average against Jackson so far this season. Votto has 50 hits for a .263 average so far this season. Votto has 5 hits for a .192 average over the last 7 days. Votto hasn’t been hitting but he does hit Jackson and I think that will continue tonight.

Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes

is another good pick for tonight against Hiroki Kuroda and the Yankees. Reyes has 4 hits for a .174 average against the Yankees so far this season. Reyes has 9 hits for a .450 average against Kuroda so far this season. Reyes had 2 hits for a .400 average against Kuroda last season. Reyes has 64 hits for a .250 average so far this season. Reyes has 3 hits for a .103 average over the last 7 days.

Robinson Cano

Robinson Cano

is another good pick I feel for tonight against Clay Buchholz and Boston. Cano has 3 hits for a .333 average against Boston so far this season. Cano has 12 hits for a .375 average against Buchholz in his career so far. Cano had 0 hits in 7 at bats against Buchholz last season. Cano has 94 hits for a .329 average so far this season. Cano has 9 hits for a .346 average over the last 7 days. Cano hits Buchholz and this is Buchholz’s first start off the DL and I think he will get at least one hit off of him tonight.

My other potentials went 2-1-0 yesterday. Melky went hitless against the Yankees for the first time in 20 games and Molina came into the game late and got a pinch hit base hit. Good luck to all today.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Tough Month

This has been a very, very tough month and it’s been backwards all year in BTS and I’m still stuck on 0 after Gardner went hitless last night against Stroman. Stroman is a totally different pitcher at home than on the road and he shut the Yankees down last night and it’s crazy how much his splits differ home and away but they do. Gardner will get  a hit in his first at bat tonight against Mark Buehrle which wouldn’t make sense but Gardner actually hits Buehrle well. I will figure out because no matter what I do and go with nothing works at all. The current BTS leader is at 31 after not making a pick last night but they will fall soon because it has happened to everybody so far. Let’s get to it.

Recommended Picks By MLB For June 24th

Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera

is a very good pick for tonight I feel against

Colby Lewis

Colby Lewis

and Texas. Miggy has 7 hits for a .412 average against Texas so far this season. Miggy has 46 hits for a .336 average on the road so far this season.

Lewis hasn’t pitched in the last 7 days so he has no stats but he did give up 10 hits for a .417 BAA Oakland in his last start. Lewis hasn’t pitched this season at all and he gets spanked at home and I expect the same will happen tonight as well and he will give up at least one hit to Miggy tonight.

Jake Peavy

Jake Peavy

Double Down Record: 30-43- This just keeps getting worse and I’m only going to be doing it at 0 but I can’t seem to get off of 0 but I will tonight I feel.

Current Average: 171 for 602 for .284

Current Streak: 0- Adams continues to rake against righties and he had a great game but it didn’t matter since Gardner went hitless.

Other Potentials For June 24th

Kendrys Morales

Kendrys Morales

is a pick I would definitely look at for tomorrow against C.J. Wilson and Anaheim. Morales hasn’t faced Anaheim so far this season. Morales has 19 hits for a .253 average against Anaheim in his career so far. Morales has 9 hits for a .429 average against Wilson in his career so far. Morales had 7 hits for a .538 average against Wilson last season. Morales has 11 hits for a .216 average so far this season. Morales has 2 hits for a .091 average over the last 7 days so he isn’t hitting well at all but I think he will have a good game against Wilson tonight.

Yadier Molina

Yadier Molina

is another pick that could do well tonight and he could have a good game against Jorge De La Rosa and Colorado. Molina has 0 hits in 4 at bats against Colorado so far this season. Molina has 5 hits for a .455 average against De La Rosa in his career so far. Molina had 0 hits in 3 at bats against De La Rosa last season. Molina has 74 hits for a .286 average so far this season.

Cabrera has 98 hits for a .304 average so far this season. Cabrera has 12 hits for a .429 average over the last 7 days. Cabrera is on a 20 game hitting streak against the Yankees and I think that will extend tonight against Phelps.

My other potentials went 1-1 on Sunday. Baker didn’t do anything but Mauer did against Danks. Good luck to all and I like my odds of getting back on a streak tonight.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Maybe That’s The Way To Go

Maybe that’s the way I should make my picks all the time. I went with 2 people based on what the pitcher was doing and it worked but I did have to wait for one til his last at bat but it’s all good the same. Back at it and I’m just hoping to get something going no matter what. The current BTS leader is at 33 after going with Jeter and Cespedes but they will fall in time. Let’s do it.

Chris Tillman

and Baltimore. Jeter has 4 hits for a .211 average against Baltimore so far this season. Jeter has 30 hits for a .248 average at home so far this season.

Darvish has given up 41 hits for a .266 average on the road so far this season. Darvish has given up 52 hits for a .229 average at night so far this season. Darvish has given up 28 hits for a .259 BAA in June so far this season. Darvish has given up 26 hits for a .195 BAA righties so far this season. Darvish has given up 77 hits for a .229 BAA so far this season. Darvish has given up 8 hits for a .400 BAA over the last 7 days so he isn’t pitching well but I think that he will shut down Kendrick and Anaheim tonight.

Current Record: 27-48-8- Alvarez didn’t start the game but he did pinch hit and went hitless.

Double Down Record: 30-41- Both came through and no more after today.

Current Average: 168 for 588 for .286

could have a good game today against John Danks and the White Sox. Mauer has 5 hits for a .208 average against the White Sox so far this season. Mauer has 20 hits for a .377 average against Danks in his career so far. Mauer had 2 hits for a .400 average against Danks last season. Mauer has 69 hits for a .257 average so far this season.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

This Is Bad

This is getting really bad now. I thought I had a sure thing yesterday with Goldschmidt and McCutchen and Goldschmidt didn’t disappoint but McCutchen did and I can’t get over 4 at all no matter what so I’m just going to pick people and hope for the best. Stats aren’t working and nothing is working no matter what and I’m even picking hitters who are hitting good right now and they are even going hitless. The current BTS leaders are at 31 but they will fall in time. Let’s do it.

Recap Of June 20th

Andrew McCutchen- 0 for 4

Andrew McCutchen- 0 for 4

All signs pointed to McCutchen coming through against Jackson but it didn’t happen and I’m back to 0 again. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Paul Goldschmidt-

Paul Goldschmidt- 2 for 3

Continues to rake against Lincecum and got a hit in his first at bat against him again. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Starlin Castro- 1 for 4

Starlin Castro- 1 for 4

He hit a homer and continues to hit well against Morton. I was thinking about changing McCutchen for him because something in my gut didn’t feel right with McCutchen and I didn’t make the switch. Was my Sleeper Pick.

Albert Pujols-

Albert Pujols- 0 for 2

Went hitless and than was pulled from the game. Was my Pick To Avoid.

Justin Verlander

Justin Verlander

and Detroit. Bourn has 9 hits for a .300 average against Detroit so far this season. Bourn has 31 hits for a .301 average at home so far this season.

Stanton has 5 hits for a .192 average over the last 7 days. Stanton might not be the best pick but the way deGrom is pitching I think he will do something.

Brandon Phillips

is another pick that could have a great game today against J.A. Happ and Toronto. Phillips has 1 hit for a .200 average against Toronto so far this season. Phillips has 6 hits for a .500 average against Happ in his career so far. Phillips had 1 hit for a .333 average against Happ when he last faced him in 2012.

Phillips has 9 hits for a .321 average over the last 7 days so he is hitting and he hits Happ well and I think he will get at least one hit today.

My other potentials went 3-1-0 yesterday. Marte was the only one who didn’t get a hit against Jackson. Good luck to all and I’m doing 1 after today. Craig lost his streak on Starling Marte which was a tough one but I know you can get it going again. I am only going to do 2 when I am at 0 since there are 93 game days left in the season so more than enough time.

Disclaimer: My personal picks can change without notice based on lineups.

Can I Pass 4?

The question is going to be can I pass 4 tonight in BTS. I haven’t past 4 in a month and I’m hoping this is the start of my run and you never know what is going to happen. The current BTS leader is at after they went with Lucroy and they got lucky when he didn’t pinch hit so they remained at 32 but they will fall and it could happen as soon as tonight. Let’s do it.

Recap Of June 19th

Mike Trout- 1 for 3

Mike Trout- 1 for 3

His only hit was a double in the 10th inning so this was a lucky one but it all counts. Was the first half of my Double Down.

Andrew McCutchen- 1 for 6

Had only one hit and was a lucky pick if you had him.

Dustin Pedroia-

Hit a homer off of Kazmir and continues to hit him well. Was my Sleeper Pick.

Michael Brantley- DNP- Mild Concussion

Got a hit in his first at bat but it was his only hit of the game. Was the second half of my Double Down.

Sleeper Pick For June 20th

Starlin Castro

Starlin Castro

is on here because Miggy is not a sleeper at all. He is always picked so he isn’t a sleeper in my eyes. Castro I think is a great choice against

Charlie Morton

Charlie Morton

and Pittsburgh. Castro has 14 hits for a .326 average against Pittsburgh so far this season. Castro has 34 hits for a .286 average at home so far this season. Castro has 44 hits for a .324 average during the day so far this season. Castro has 23 hits for a .333 average in June so far this season.

Pick To Avoid For June 20th

is another pick I feel that will have a great game tonight against James Shields and Kansas City. Cano has 4 hits for a .286 average against Kansas City so far this season. Cano has 32 hits for a .395 average against Shields in his career so far. Cano had 1 hit for a .167 average against Shields last season. Cano has 89 hits for a .333 average so far this season. Cano has 8 hits for a .333 average over the last 7 days. Cano has been raking and he rakes against Shields and I think he will get at least one hit tonight.

My other potentials went 3-1-0 yesterday. Hamilton didn’t do anything which was a shocker and he was picked a lot yesterday because the numbers were so good against Masterson. Today there are a lot of good picks that rake against the starting pitcher so hopefully we will all have streaks after tonight. Craig, keep it going bud and get to 21 or 22. I have no idea what your thinking of doing but do your thing bud. Good luck to all tonight.
