2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 3-0, 2009: 27-32 (45.8%)
GIANTS AT NATS (4:05 PT: Lincecum vs Stammen)
Last year’s Cy Young winner vs the worst team in baseball. You think I would pass this up? No freaking way. We’re playing the upset. Tim Lincecum is a little bit off and SF is bad on the road. NATS.
CUBS at BRAVES (4:10 PT: Wells vs Kawakami)
The Cubbies are just 9-14 on the road and forced to start Randy Wells in place of the suspended Carlos Zambrano. Wells has 3 straight quality starts, but has nothing to show for it. We’re hoping for a fourth failure here. BRAVES...Bonus: YANKS
2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 2-1, 2009: 35-27 (56.5%)
RED SOX AT TIGERS (4:05 PT: Matsuzaka vs Porcello)
Porcello, Detroit’s 20-year-old phenom, was 5-0 in May. We lobbied to extend the month, but no luck. Dice K (0-3, 8.82 ERA) has struggled since the World Baseball Classic. Plus the Tigers are 15-7 at Comerica Park. TIGERS.
METS AT PIRATES (4:05 PT: Santana vs Duke)
Johan Santana is pitching. Enough said. Pittsburgh’s lineup will be hard pressed to score 3 runs. However, Zack Duke is no slouch. The Duke has a 2.75 ERA and is 2-1 vs the Mets. A 3-2 game would work. UNDER...Bonus: TAMPA BAY.
