Picks, 9|FRONTS|23|FRONTS|10

With 11 days left, I’m now comfortably at a point, up about 26 units, where I probably can’t blow a positive season. I’ll do some postgame next week. Suffice to say that I do have some regrets about my season, and some significant lessons learned. The nut graf is this, though: I think a committed, disciplined "stathead" can beat the books.

Tonight, again, a light night:

Colorado -102, 1.5 units. Fading the sweep, to some extent. A flyball, righthanded pitcher, in Ian Kennedy, is as good as it will get for the Rockies, and they’re just this side of desperate. Maybe Huston Street will pitch, instead of being saved for winter ball.

Oakland +115, one unit. The Rangers’ offense continues to struggle, and l’m not completely sold on the idea that Cliff Lee has been magically cured.
