The set-up: The Rockies have the odds stacked against them to make the playoffs, as they'll need to start stringing wins together immediately. One game at a time from here on out. The A's will be in the playoffs and while they're the "better" team on paper in this matchup admittedly, I think that this sets up great for the home side from a situational stand point. As note that Oakland has played ten games in the last seven days, including a double header in Seattle yesterday, losing the first game 6-5 in the ninth inning, before then clobbering the M's 9-0 in the night-cap. Can anyone say "letdown" spot here?
The pick: I think these starting pitchers are a "wash," so let's throw that factor out the window. Note though that the A's are just 2-7 in their last nine after an eight runs or greater in their last outing. Great value here on the home side!
This is a 10* COACH'S CORNER on the Colorado Rockies.
