    Have been away a bit, but still keeping up on baseball. Have been eyeing the lines and schedule, but rarely see more than a 1/2 unit or one unit play. But today I like:

    Texas TT over 3.5 (-115). 3 units. The game total is 9 and Texas is only at 3.5? With Chase Whitley on the mound? Whitley pitched well for a while and benefitted from teams that were overly aggressive at the plate. Now teams are waiting on his fastball and he is getting tagged. In his last 16 IPs, 33 hits and 20 runs. Texas has no pitching, except for Darvish, but their lineup is about at the league average or better. They can hit Whitley as they got to a better Shane Greene on Monday, and hit Dickey and Buehrle in Toronto over the weekend. Texas might lose this game, but 3.5 seems like a very good number.

    LAA TT over 4. (-125) 3 units. I watched the Angels over the weekend, and it looks like they've cooled off since the All Star break, but I doubt that they have. They faced some very tough Seattle pitching, who have the best BP in the AL, Felix and Iwakuma. Last night, Bud Norris was "on", but really this Angel team has a dynamic lineup. Calhoun, their leadoff guy, is red hot and has power- then there's Trout and Pujois (who looks improved from last year, but not at his peak anymore). Aybar should return tonight too. They are getting production and at least solid ABs from the whole lineup. Miguel Gonzalez is coming off of 2 good starts, but he is likely the weakest starter the Angels have seen since the AS break. He can toil at times with his command, is a fly ball pitcher, and can give up the long ball. The Orioles are looking for bullpen help for a reason, and you might see Gonzalez departing mid-innings for some mediocre relief. 4 also seems very enticing number.
