  1. Charles says:

    No way is Longoria going to have two bad nights in a row. He’s my pick.

  2. Dirtbag Fan says:

    Dirt McGirt.

  3. Joe D. says:

    Pretty weak looking line up w/o CC and Burrell, but I like Bartlett in the 2 hole, with Longo protecting him, not to mention he’s been raking. I’m going with JB

  4. Brett says:


  5. Brixology says:

    Aki. Yes, Aki.

  6. GatorRaysHead says:

    Bossman gets 3 hits again tonight.

    • GatorRaysHead says:

      changing my pick. i still think melvin gets 3 hits, but i forgot that big game james was due for a stellar outing. our bullpen is beat down and needs a break, so shieldsy will go 8+ strong to hold it down.

  7. Andy Kline says:

    I’m feeling it tonight. I’ll be in the Trop to see Ben “Zorilla” Zobrist

    • Andy Kline says:

      I think I made the right pick for the sunburst player of the game with the 3 run homer for Zorilla in a horrendous pitching day for us. i was too happy tonight in the trop

  8. Cougar Bait says:

    heading to the trop….and goin with BJ tonight.

  11. steve-o1285 says:

    This has Shields written all over it.

  12. Martin B says:

    Shields will pitch an amazing game tonight.

  13. MikeD says:

    I wuz ROBBED yesterday when I picked Carlos PENA, so I’ll pick him again. For my second choice, even though I don’t have one, it’s Zorilla

  14. Adrian says:

    Shields is due.
