The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAKE RED SOX TONIGHT

Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez loves hurling at night, as evidence by his 16-4 team-start mark this evening. Coupled with San Diego’s 5-10 record at home against AL East opponents, and Padres pitcher Chris Paddack sporting an 8.01 ERA in his last three starts, we’ll put Rodriguez’s night vision to work tonight.

Waking A Sleeping Giant

I don’t like running with favorites but the fact of the matter is Alabama is NOT favored to win the cheese this year. Coincidentally, 4 of the last five times Alabama was not ranked No. 1 in the preseason polls it went on to win the national championship. Couple that with the fact since joining the SEC, Nick Saban has concluded the season with a loss on five occasions. His teams were an eye-popping 66-5 the following 5 seasons, winning 4 National titles. And now you know the rest of the story.

On Today’s Scorecard

NFL – Browns 0-4 SUATS preseason on Fridays … MLB – Nationals: Sanchez 5-0 $ vs Chicago, Cubs Lester 1-5 $ home in August … Reds: 1-10 at Pittsburgh … Brewers: 7-1 vs. Arizona … Indians: Plesac 7-0 $ at night this season … Tigers: Boyd 0-7 $ away in August … White Sox: Cease 0-5 $ as a dog this season.
