Tuesday, July 27, 2021 Oakland Athletics vs. San Diego Padres (MLB) - 10:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -152 San Diego Padres Rating: 9* Tuesday's Inter-League Master Play (WIN) Don't under-estimate it! The Padres' latest addition of a leadoff-hitter in 2B Adam Frazier (batting .324) from Pittsburgh is a BIG one. San Diego is in an ugly mood after dropping 2 to Miami. They take on a vastly over-achieving Athletics (56-45) squad whose 3 wins above their true numbers (53-48). The flip side shows the Padres (58-44) are under-achievers (61-41). San Diego has dominated the junior circuit thus far posting an 8-1 record. Since the All-Star break, Oakland has been a losing proposition @ 4-5 & a sagging 1-5 their last 6 versus winning teams. The last 12 versus winning teams while on the road has seen the A's chiming in @ 3-9. SD has been a different squad @ home this season going 33-19 compared to even 25-25 on the road. Since the Padres split their last 10 home games, I look for those numbers to increase to the norm. My bottom line stresses how well San Diego has performed as interleague favorites over the long haul. Over the last 36, they're playing .750 ball @ 27-9. It's hard to ignore consistency as they're also a window-cashing 25-9 versus the AL West. I'm glad to go to Petco Park to play the SAN DIEGO PADRES as my 9* Tuesday Inter-League Master Play! Sunday, July 25, 2021 Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Francisco Giants (MLB) - 4:05 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -170 San Francisco Giants Rating: 10* RARE MLB Text Book 10 Star Play (WIN) Mike's rebounding off Saturday with a BIG MLB Text-Booker going this afternoon. I love the spring back attack here since the Pirates come of 2 wins (including an embarrassing one yesterday) over the Giants. Despite back-to-back losses, the Frisco Kids are a solid 30-15 @ home & are 41-22 versus losing clubs. RHP J.T. Brubaker takes to the hill being an overall 4-9 with a 4.68 ERA. He's even worse on the road with a 1-5 record & 5.33 ERA. His last 3 overall have produced a ballooned 9.20 ERA with the Pirates going 0-3. San Francisco throws LHP Alex Wood (8-3 with a 3.77 ERA) whose gone a nifty 5-2 with a 3.71 ERA @ home & beat Pittsburgh on the road in his last start on May 16th by a 4-1 count. Besides SF having the 2nd-best overall ERA in the ML, Wood should also get some excellent support from a bullpen ranking 3rd in the majors with a 3.36 ERA. In addition, facing southpaws on the road has seen major struggles from the Black & Gold who've gone a ticket-ripping 17-47. This season has seen the Giants' starters post a nifty 3.33 ERA, a clear 2 runs lower than the Bucos' starters who chime in @ 5.33. Analytics further point out that Pittsburgh is a horrible 17-47 in Game 3 of a series & a no-show 2-10 versus the NL West. On the flip side, the Giants' pitching staff have bounced back mightily after giving up 5 or more runs. Their next game has shown them posting a show-me-the-money 20-6 on the ML. The Pirates have gone 7-17 versus LHP this year including a 9-16 mark versus the NL West. There's also a decided advantage in day games with SF going 22-14 matched up to Pitt's Antarctic-like 15-28. No matter how you slice it or dice, we'll be happy to go to Oracle Park to play the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS as my RARE MLB Text Book 10 Star Play! Mike Handzelek's 2021 MLB Overall Record: 34-26 for a bland 57% 28-16 Last 44
