Bullpen Blues 

The title of this post was gonna be "Thanks, Jeff," as we got tangible results of trading Mr. Furious to the Padres when Dave Hansen belted a three-run homer off of Tim Hudson to tie the game last night in the seventh.

Enter the ninth, and we mistakenly leave Mike Myers in to give up a walk and single while Shiggy opens the floodgates. David at USS Mariner does a nice job of breaking down the mistake Melvin made by not bringing in Eddie Guardado.

So what could have been an inspiring come-from-behind victory over the staff ace of our chief rival goes down as a disappointing loss.

Today's picks:
Padres (Valdez) +126 over Giants (Rueter)
Astros (Oswalt) -210 over Cardinals (Marquis)
Devil Rays (Moss) +150 over Orioles (Ainsworth)
Yankees (Mussina) -155 over White Sox (Schoenweiss)

Money to date: $818 (picking dog/favorite = +628/+190, 12-12, 11-6) - Seven straight correct picks including getting the D-Rays and the Tigers last night. I'm approaching Ibanez territory.
