Vegas currently lists the over/under on the number of times that Kdro will strikeout tonight versus Doc Holladay as 2.5. I'm taking the over. Hoping I'm wrong but that's my bet.

I'll go under, he only has one 3K game in the last two weeks and Doc ain't exactly what he used to be. He is sporting a 6 ERA and his two seamer is at 90 instead of 92 like his hey day, and yes I realized I just jinxed the team and we will be shut out.

That's what the edit function is for. ;)

Halladay is struggling and I was going to make that point but, I looked it up and he's currently close to a career high strikeout rate in the middle of the shellings. So Pedro's either hitting one 500 ft or striking out.

I wouldn't bet against a 500 ft. home run AND three strike outs.

Roy hasn't struggled in his last two starts, actually he's been real good. He has given up two long balls though. The only two runs he's given up in those past 2 outings. I'll say under, 2 K's, heck through in a homerun.

Well one of those starts was against Miami so that hardly counts ;)

His problem this year has been walks (3.6/9), he used to never let anybody on for free, and a crazy high HR rate that will come down.

I'll gladly lose that bet anytime. You are right. Money very well spent!
