If you thought we got off to a bad start, check out the line on Cincinnati’s Luis Castillo’s Opening Day performance against St. Louis. The Cardinals ruffled his feathers for eight runs on eight hits, walked two and struck out no one over 3 ¹/₃ ineffective innings, leaving the game with an ERA of 21.60. Gotta’ Believe the 2019 All-Star will rebound facing the Pirates.
Pittsburgh is projected to walk the plank more than 100 times this season with their Over/Under win total in Vegas sitting at 58.5. Thinking this may be one of them.
Chad Kuhl goes for the Bucs. He threw three frames in a limited Opening Day start at Wrigley, allowing a run. Play 20 units on the Reds.
The Tigers blew a two-run lead in the eighth inning (sound familiar, Mets fans?) but defeated the Twins 4-3 in 10 innings. Akil Baddoo’s line-drive single off reliever Hansel Robles (sound familiar, Mets fans?) the game-winner. Win has our account at -375 freehans.
