by GT Staff | San Francisco Giants at Chicago Cubs (-150): Wrigley Field. Friday afternoon. Summertime. The best record in the NL. Truckloads of Old Style. Plus, a better lineup chock full o’ All-Stars and newbie Rich Harden. Chicago sends Jason Marquis to the hill while the Giants give the ball to Matt Cain in this early game at The Friendly Confines where the natives will certainly be restless and the temperature definitely hot. CUBS.
Chicago White Sox (-136, 10½) at Texas Rangers: It doesn’t even matter that Gavin Floyd is pitching for the Pale Hose, with so many bats in both lineups (Konerko-Thome-Quentin-Pierzynski for the ChiSox; Kinsler-Bradley-Young-Hamilton for the Rangers), and Texas being the most offensive team in all of MLB, and the mercury being in the 90s or possibly 100s, balls will be flying around Arlington tonight. Also, Texas (117) led the AL in home runs with the White Sox second (104). OVER 10½.
