Wonder what the record is for most consecutive walkoff wins, That series against Pittsburgh was fun to watch.

Let's forget about my atrocious April record (4-14-4) on picks and turn over a new leaf for May! My pick today is Clay Buchholz to go Krazy today. I expect more than a k/ip today against the strikeout-happy Rays. Would love to see a win and good era but I'll take a krazy k day. :)

Just for a quick daily question/discussion, curious which guy people would start today - Yasmany Tomas in Coors against a lefty (batting 5th, Vegas expects 4.55 runs from the team, weather is dicey) or ARod in Toronto against a Dickey (who he destroys with a walkless .875 OPS, batting 3rd, Vegas expects 4.15 runs from the team)?

Yasmany sucks - ARod.

Still stand behind my call on ARod even though he was outscored by Tomas who hasn't played due to weather. :)

I'm 1-0-0 now in May and 5-14-4 overall - Buchholz did meet the K goal. Nothing much else going on but there was some bad luck on a couple of those runs - that play with Hanley hitting the wall is a catch in the first and that game could go a lot differently.
