2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 1-1. ’08: 56-33

MILW AT STL (Sheets 11-7 v Wellemeyer 11-4)

The Cardinals are all but out of the NL Central race. As for Milwaukee, it’s riding a four-game win streak and looking solid for the Wild Card. Starting Ben Sheets is a good thing. BREWERS.

BOST at NYY (Wakefield 7-8 v Pettitte 13-9)

No love lost here in this big three-game series. Yanks need a sweep to get back in the Wild Card race. No place better to start than right here. YANKEES.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 3-0. ’08: 51-39 (56.7%)

MILW at STL (Brewers 6-4 last 10, Cards 7-3 in L10)

Normally, I don’t go against Mr. Saber. However, Ben Sheets is just 5-14 lifetime against St. Louis, while Todd Wellemeyer has found a second wind off the DL winning his last three starts. CARDS.

BOST at NYY (Red Sox 6-4 last 10, Yanks 6-4 in L10)

Time to support Richard S. Andy Pettitte is a big-game pitcher and 16-7 lifetime against Boston. Wakefield just 9-17 vs NY. YANKS...Bonus: WHITE SOX.
