And, we are down to just a few more shots at Beat the Experts. But with a couple of weeks left in the season, it means you can still match up against me and 199 other regular guys at RealTime's Friday "Beat the Experts" contest where you can play for free and should you beat me--which these days is not the big deal it seems--you can net a tidy $2 profit.
With clear skies on the Major League horizon, I chose to again go with big time arms this week, pairing Cole Hamels ($8800), who will be pitching against the Athletics, with Felix Hernandez ($8500), facing the Astros. In these picks, I am looking at whiffs for pitchers going against some free swinging squads.
For hitters, I am stacking Angels, including C.J. Cron ($3700), Kole Calhoun ($4700) and Jett Bandy ($2200), going up against knuckle-baller R.A. Dickey and his 4.60 ERA.
Don't forget, you can hit me up @lawrmichaels and also feel free to comment, flatter, cajole, ridicule, bewitch, bother, and bewilder in the comments section below.
