July 26th, 2009 Picks

(skip to picks)0-1-and-fucking-1 today. I had the Galaxy locked into my sights this morning but after looking at the Manny matchup I talked myself into taking a solid Mike Bliss pick in NASCAR, my first NASCAR pick ever. Here on BLAC I've made a ton of NASCAR picks and I seem to remember thinking back week after week ``Oh well, I could've picked up a win with that NASCAR pick" after ending the night with a loss. Well, took Bliss knowing it was a gimme unless he wrecked. Pretty good odds, since most drivers wreck in a small percentage of their races and in each race the vast majority of drivers do not wreck. So of course Bliss wrecks in the first 30 laps, thanks for causing that and placing anyways Keselowski, you ripe rank snogridocious carton of shit! At least it unlocked in time for me to pick up another push. Ai ai ai on to the picks.

Carl Edwards Takes Kroger 200 As Bliss Crashes Out
J. Allgaier 21st 1 lap back, M. Bliss 33rd 85 laps back
``What a terrible day."

---Mike Bliss
Brad Keselowski bumped Scott Lagasse Jr. sending him into the wall which he bounced off of caroming out in front of Mike Bliss. Bliss did not have time to slow down or veer away and drove right over Lagasse's #11 effectively taking them both out of the race. It was disappointing as Justin Allgaier ran a hohum race and never made a move past 15th place. Bliss would have stomped him except for Keselowski clipping Lagasse which you can se in the video.
``Edwards had the dominant car after starting from the rear of the field because he missed qualifying to participate in a practice session for Sunday's Sprint Cup race at nearby Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Edwards led twice for 72 of the race's 200 laps but lost the lead with 30 laps to go under caution. Edwards' No. 60 Ford was pinned behind Scott Wimmer's Chevrolet in the pits, and Edwards mistakenly put his car in the wrong gear. Busch led coming to the green flag on Lap 174, but Edwards battled him hard and finally made the pass for the lead on Lap 179."

Kuroda, VandenHurk Duel It Out But Dodgers Overwhelm Marlins Bullpen With 8 Hits
Los Angeles Dodgers 4 - 3 Florida Marlins
Hanley 1 Total Base, Manny 1 Total Base
Manny finally had a single single in a game which he was long overdue for. Too bad he couldn't have one of his typical extra base hits today.
``After Rafael Furcal's one-out bunt single in the ninth, Orlando Hudson singled to left off Dan Meyer (2-1). Luis Ayala then struck out Manny Ramirez, but walked Andre Ethier to load the bases before Blake dropped his hit into shallow right-center, finishing Los Angeles' 27th comeback victory of the season."

12) Florida Marlins @ Los Angeles Dodgers - Los Angeles
13) Chicago White Sox @ Detroit Tigers - Detroit

8) U.S.A. vs. Mexico - Just keep in mind there is not a single player on the U.S. team currently that played on the Confederations Cup team that beat Spain and was up 2-0 on Brazil at the half. It's a younger team and Mexico will certainly be a challenge. SkyBet has the United States at +125 to win in 90 minutes + injury time and Mexico at +190. They also have the U.S. at -135 to win the Championship with Mexico at +210, so decent odds. Mexico has always played better down south and had trouble up here. I don't think they've ever won against U.S.A. here in the States, but today will be their best chance ever to do so.
