The Rays’ no-show has been costly, and I have to say I’m pretty shocked. Forget the checked-swing controversy; they have scored one run in the two games, and no amount of umpiring makes up for that.
I picked the Phillies in four, and tonight’s the game I see the Reds winning. They have enough left-handed pop to get to Roy Oswalt, and once the bullpens get involved, they have a big edge.
Cincinnati +181, one unit
Cincinnati over 7.5 (-110), 1.5 units
The over opened at 7, but I didn’t get to it in time.
San Francisco -135, 1.5 units.
Batting fifth, the center fielder, Melky Cabrera.
