Everything Counts


SF vs HOU (RL-1.5 Even)  1 Unit

Wednesday, August 12th, 2020 @ 8:50 am PST  Cahill is back and we like Cahill but we like Greinke better.  This game should be close for awhile but HOU will break free.  Good luck! 


UPDATE:  Wednesday, August 12th, 2020 @ 5:25 am PST  After a slow start to the season, we're still going slow.  We wouldn't mind a few more winners this week.  Who you got? 


Sahlen Field, Buffalo

Wednesday, August 12th, 2020 @ 6:00 a.m. PST  Well, we were hoping to get off to a bit of a faster start than we have but we knew going into this season it wasn't going to be easy (of course it's never easy anyway).  We're going to remain calm, look for our opportunities, and stay conservative as much as possible, risking 1-2 units per game... self-control, discipline...

"We've never been less certain about how things will play out on the field."  Richard Justice, MLB.com

MLB has returned to stadiums filled with piped-in cheering and cardboard fans.  Every one of these pandemic-era games is played by players knowing it may possibly be their last game of the season. Still, until that last game is played, someone will win and someone will lose.  That means we can, um, still choose to be entertained.  And it means we might even win a game now and then.
