10:39 PM ET: Joba hurt, Thunderstorms in Chicago, Giambi shaves...Oh My!!!
The Yankee savior is hurt! Joba Chamberlain left the game tonight in the fifth inning with what appears to be a right shoulder injury. He gave up five runs including eight hits and two walks. But Joba only gave 12% of users the loss. Other than Mussina isn't Joba the Yanks best starter right now? So much for that surge every August Yankee fans.
Also, The Astros-Cubs game is delayed due to wicked thunderstorms and it looks like we could be heading for a postponed matchup. If this does happen those who picked the Astros vs. Soriano prop will be unlocked so you all can pick another game, starting tomorrow in the a.m. Oh and I can't forget this: Giambi shaved the 'stach! Baseball is going to miss that thing. What a hit that facial hair was.
Today's Preview: Not a whole lot to choose from today but we always seem to find a soccer game to throw into the mix. We use the French Ligue 2 for the first time as Montpellier is the underdog on the road against Strasbourg. The rest of the today features a variety of MLB games and props. Most notably, the Houston Astros runs against Alfonso Soriano total bases + runs, featured on ESPN Monday Night Baseball. Some notes: Halladay had 8 strikeouts in 8 innings in his last start, the Rays are -130 versus the Indians, the Red Sox are -115 against the Royals, the Twins are -130 versus Seattle and San Fran is -125 at home against the Braves. There is potential for a 3-win day. Best Bets: Soriano, Twins and Giants.
Yesterday's Notes: A solid day for streakers today with an overall winning PCT of 64.7%. Pat Burrell and Chase Utley were your big winners of the day, while the heavily favored Angels were taken down by the Yankees as the biggest streak breaker. Our two leaders only picked once today and both won, therefore they both sit on top of the leaderboard with 10. It will be interesting to see how long they last.
