Here is the updated leaderboard. We are giving an honorary +1 to “Shoop” for having the cajones to pick Troy Percival yesterday.




  1. cougar says:

    kazmir has to follow up his last game with a solid performance…time for him to get his 50th win. going with kid k

  2. Dan B says:

    1st pick of the season for me so why not go with the lead-off hitter.

    BJ Upton

  3. Dirtbag Fan says:

    Cougar stole my pick (and I’m sure a lot of others will agree with him too).


    • Dirtbag Fan says:

      I may be the only person who’s picked every night and still hasn’t cashed-in yet.
      I guess that’s what happens when you pick JP Howell when Shields is pitching (sometimes my own stupidity amazes me- then again stupid people are usually easily amazed).

  4. GH says:

    Long-Going out on a limb… Longoria.

  5. Dave says:

    Time for BJ Upton to make his presence known.

  6. MikeD says:

    Kid K’s gonna be ON it tonight

  7. GatorRaysHead says:

    Kazmir gets back on his march to the Cy Young tonight.

  8. Joe D. says:

    With the Righty going tonight for the A’s, and Zobrist having just played 4 straight days, and Gabe Gross having 5 days off, I’m looking for the well rested Gross to come through in the clutch tonight.

  9. staplemaniac says:

    Cahil’s got problems with lefties. I’m guessing Gross gets the start in right, and I think he gets in a good game finally. Out on a limb, GG.

  10. Justin says:


  11. steve-o1285 says:

    I’ll go with Carlos Pena.

  12. Jsess says:

    Pat the Bat… He gets the power stroke goin tonight

  13. Michael says:

    Scott Kazmir

  14. TheRevTy says:

    I’ll be bold: Dioner Navarro

  15. Charles says:

    Dave said BJ Upton, so that’s the logical choice

    But I am not logical, and I am going with Joe Nelson tossing a couple zeroes up in long relief of Kid K.

  16. Martin B says:

    I’m going with Pat “How you like my banana hammock” Burrell

  17. Andy Kline says:

    I’m gonna go with Kazmir tonight.

  18. Corbitt says:

    Pat Burrell, he’s seeing the ball fairly well lately, it just always seems to be out of the zone

  19. Going with Kazmir; he is going to throw a gem. He better, he is on my fantasy team.

  20. Mark says:

    Kazmir, our starters have done well the last two games.

  21. YaBoyKazmir says:

    my boy kazmir!

  22. Danny says:

    Kazmir. The A’s are actually hitting worse than we are, hopefully Kazmir takes advantage of this.

  23. Cougar Bait says:

    since we can’t seem to hit….going with Kaz

  24. leningan says:

    feed the bat and he will score.

  25. KillaTapes says:

    Carl Crawford again. Terrorizing the basepaths.
