July 31st, 2009 Picks

(skip to picks)1-2-0 again today. Started off on the wrong foot with Scott Verplank. Then took the Santana pick in lieu of the two Audi Cup games. It was nice to have one in the bag early on rather than going through two penalty kick situations though I would have had two wins out of it instead one. I waited until the evening to take the 55 points or over and this one turned out like so many other tease-ems with the scoring amping up in the final minutes of the game only to fall three points short. My picks have been way off lately. After the past few weeks of heavy favorites winning practically every game I've been slow to adjust back to the norm of actual 50/50 toss ups where the apparent underdog pulls off the win fairly often. And so on to the picks.

Steve Lowry Makes Early Morning Run To Top Leaderboard At -9, Tiger Woods Outside Cut For Now
Front 9 Scores: S. Appleby 35, S. Verplank 36
I really figured Verplank, with a series of top 10 finishes the past few weekends, would outhit Appleby who hadn't played at Warwick Hills since 2005. Mid-range putting is such a big factor towards your final score.
``Two weeks ago in the British Open, Woods was 7 over during a six-hole span and ended up missing a cut for the first time in three years. If Woods fails to break 70 in the second round on Friday, he will put himself in danger of missing cuts in consecutive tournaments for the first time as a pro. It's too early, though, to count him out for the weekend at Warwick Hills even though the cut is usually 3 or 4 under. He opened the 2005 Buick Open with a 71, bounced back with a course-record tying 61 and finished tied for second. Lowery took advantage of perfect conditions -- smooth, receptive greens and calm winds -- in the morning by tying a course record with a 29 on the front nine and finishing 9-under 63. John Senden also did, making five straight birdies in the morning and finishing with nine to end up only a shot off the lead. Y.E. Yang, James Nitties, Vaughn Taylor, Brian Vranesh were two strokes back with 65s."

Rockies Remain Feeble In New York As Santana Joins 12-Win Club
New York Mets 7 - 0 Colorado Rockies
Colorado finally won a game in New York in the second game of the doubleheader, so they're something like 4-24 now in their last 28 in New York against the Mets.
``Santana (12-8) struck out eight and walked one in his first career outing against Colorado, allowing just four hits. The two-time Cy Young Award winner closed out July with a 3-2 record and a sparkling 1.82 ERA in five starts. Bobby Parnell and Tim Redding each pitched an inning to finish the four-hitter. New York, posted its highest run total in a Santana start since they beat the Nationals 7-4 on June 27. The Rockies have lost three straight for the first time since they dropped four in a row from May 31-June 3. They haven't scored since Clint Barmes' solo homer in the fifth inning of Monday night's 7-3 loss in the series opener. Ian Stewart narrowly missed a grand slam with a long foul ball off Santana in the fourth, then struck out to end the inning."

Ray Stamps Out Alouettes' Perfect Season
Edmonton Eskimos 33 - 19 Montreal Alouettes
Things got off to an ominous start for anyone hoping these teams combine for 55+ points. Montreal marched down the field on their first two possessions only to be stopped once they got within striking distance.
``Montreal efficiently marched the ball up the field on its first two possessions, but Edmonton held them to a pair of Damon Duval field goals. Eskimos kicker Noel Prefontaine responded with a field goal of his own and the Alouettes held a 6-3 lead after the opening quarter. Montreal recorded its first touchdown of the game with 7:40 to play after a 39-yard punt return by Larry Taylor eventually led to a one-yard TD run by Avon Cobourne to cut the score to 26-16. The Eskimos looked like they were going to restore their lead after a 65-yard kick return from Arkee Whitlock, but Ray was picked off at the Alouettes 15 by Jerald Brown. A 31-yard field goal by Duval to cut the lead to a converted touchdown with three and a half minutes to play. However the Eskimos rebounded under pressure as Ray was able to hit a wide-open Stamps for a 48-yard TD pass with two minutes remaining to put Edmonton back ahead with a comfortable margin."
