MLB Picks: July 08

By Rally Kapz

Good morning, Cincinnati.  Do you want the good news or the bad news?  Ok, the good news is your football team is coming off a trip to the Super Bowl and you seem to have found a franchise quarterback to lead the charge for hopefully at least the next decade. The bad news?  Well, you’ve also got that baseball team called the Reds. I’m sorry but they’re just plain bad. Waking up this morning, they occupy second last place across MLB, playing .349 ball and sitting just above the lowly Oakland A’s, a team that unloads their top talent on a regular basis. Sometimes in baseball, good pitching can make up for poor hitting and vice versa. Unfortunately, for the Reds, they don’t do either well, ranking 26th in hitting (based on OPS) and dead last in pitching, with a team ERA of 5.39. Nope, that’s not a typo. That’s how you end up with a record of 29-54. It doesn’t get any easier for them tonight, when they host the Tampa Bay Rays at the Great American Ball Park. 

Now, let’s talk about the Rays. They’re playing reasonably well, with a 45-37 record, not too bad considering 40% of their games thus far have been against fellow AL East juggernauts. The Rays are a good example of a team where high-quality pitching can mask an anaemic offense.  The Rays always seem to have a pipeline of young pitching talent. Starting tonight is Shane McClanahan. He’s having a stellar season so far, posting a 9-3 record, a stingy ERA of 1.74 and he has whiffed 133 batters. Did I mention that the Reds strike out a lot?

I think it will be another long night for Reds fans. Cheer up, NFL season is coming. 

Pick:  Tampa Bay Rays -1.5 +105 (bet365) at Cincinnati Reds
