Sunday, June 26, 2022 Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Tampa Bay Rays (MLB) 1:40 PM EDT Tampa Bay Rays Premium Pick YouWager Play Title: Mike's Major Command Play Of The Day Play Selected: Money Line: -245 Rating: 8* (WIN) McClanahan has shown excellent mechanics over his last 3 & I expect a sharp outing to start. He's 5-1 with a 2.40 ERA his last 7 starts & is an only-can-get better given up a run in the 1st 4 times in 14 starts. Pittsburgh has never faced him so advantage McClanahan here! Play NO SCORE Pittsburgh For Inning 1 & lay the juice!!! Saturday, June 25, 2022 Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Tampa Bay Rays (MLB) - 1:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -185 Tampa Bay Rays Rating: 9* Mike's MLB Earlybird (WIN) Look for the Tampa Bays to come alive here & whack Pittsburgh. The Rays will continue the domination of the NL pushing their interleague record to 9-1! Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals (MLB) - 2:15 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -186 St. Louis Cardinals Rating: 9* NL Central True Contender (WIN) My pick for this division was St. Louis @ the beginning of the year & I'm not swaying from it. The Cardinals will rebound here after getting humbled last night. Cincinnati Reds vs. San Francisco Giants (MLB) - 7:15 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -235 San Francisco Giants Rating: 9* Southpaw Dominator (WIN) The Giants continue to jockey for a wild-card berth as the lowly Reds invade the bay area. Take the GIANTS as they push their record versus LHP'ing to 14-7! Friday, June 24, 2022 Washington Nationals vs. Texas Rangers (MLB) - 8:05 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -150 Texas Rangers Rating: 10* Mike's Rare 10 Star Cross-Over Play (LOSS) I don't have too much faith in the Nats starting rotation (5.88 ERA this season) which fails in comparison to Texas' 4.30. Neither does that faith carry to their bullpen (4.49 ERA) that can't compare to the Rangers' 3.55. Face it! It's going to be hard to build any consistency with a team with 12 players on the DL. They put up some offensive numbers from time to time but get buried by their lack of mound depth. The analytics CLEARLY support our case with Texas being 4-0 their last 4 in this series & are an impressive 6-3 in cross-over interleague games. Here's the daggers that has us pounding the Rangers. Not only is the Nationals 7-15 in Game 1's of a series, they have struggled mightily versus RHP'ing going 15-32. Wait, it gets worse! Night games have also been more than unkind with them coming in @ 13-33. The perfect storm exists when they're coming off allowing 5 or more runs (and they are). In this case, Washington sits an unblemished 0-7! We're cruisin' down Stadium Drive to hop all over the TEXAS RANGERS (currently 4 1/2 back in the wild-card race) for 10 Stars as my Rare Cross-Over Play @ Globe Life Field in Arlington! NOTES: After a strange but unfortunate double-loss last Saturday in the SF-Pitt game where Pittsburgh spited us by scoring in the 1st & did lead after 5, it was an 0-2 day with a No-Score Pitt in the 1st & SF to lead after 5. Since then, it has been a 5-1 run to conclude the past 7 days to close out in dominant fashion. I will be gauging NFL depth charts the next month & MLB roster call-ups since some bottom dwellers & teams close to a wild-card will be improving as we near the halfway point in the month of July. Stay tuned as we continue to the methodical assault on MLB using a marathon & not sprint approach. Mike Handzelek's 2022 MLB Overall Record: 26-12 for a smash-your-book 68%!
