In the 2nd half of the season, Oakland went 2-5 against KC. Worth noting though...those 2 wins were both started by Lester.

Who did Lester pitch against?  Where were the 2 wins?

Oakland at Kansas correct?  Oakland has sucked, they could either start from scratch or go right back to where they were.  Not sure?

Probably gonna ride KC again...

For me, Lester's playoff numbers/experience override the fact that Kansas City is the hotter team right now. 2.11 ERA in 76.2 innings.

KC fans have been waiting for a playoff game for 29 years though, so it's going to be crazy there.

Playoff baseball tonight.....

Anybody ready?

Hell yeah! It's the only time of year I bet baseball, just too many random benchings and questioning if teams want to win night in/night out for my liking before October.

This is what my research says is the popular bet. 

I took the U off what my research says and tailed you on the pick.  Lets go KC 3-2

Suit was great. One of friends showed up with ronnie brewer. Talk about a classy guy. Went to college at u of a when he was there but never got to hang around him.

We went through 4 bottles of goose, 2 makers, 2 crown, 3cases of beer...

The Jerry world staff finally kicked us out almost 2 hours after the game.

No line, no WR's, nothing to assist Brady.  He can be all world yet amendola, lafelle, and edlman are all 3rd and 4th best options. 

And yet the game was still an anomaly.

I'm pretty much screwed for the next week or two.  The guy doing thepredictiontracker had a hard drive crash, and it sounds like it's unlikely that he'll be back up and running quickly.  I'm trying to figure out how to independently retrieve the data from the power rating systems, but there are a LOT of them, and I'm buried with other obligations, so life is getting in the way of my investing.  It's frustrating because we are JUST hitting the sweet spot of the season when it comes to the size of the data sampling.  After last weekend, a couple of my favorite trends were hitting at 15-0 & 42-10, with a few at 95% with 20 occurrences, a few with 80+% with over 30 occurrences, and a few at 70+% with over 50 occurrences.  They never seem to hit at those rates after I find them, but they always seem to keep hitting well above average.  I sent him a small donation before learning about his hard drive crash and sent him much more after learning about his misfortune.  Keep your fingers crossed that he gets back up and running quickly.

I managed to manually retrieve and enter data from a handful of the rating systems to piece together a few decent trends.  The spreadsheets like Arizona tonight, but I'm just not a fan of RichRod so tend to shy away from taking AZ.

My thoughts are oregon is awful on the O line.  Washington St showed how to move the ball on their D and I think all oregon has going for them in tonights game is home field and Mariotta.  If it was PK I would take Oregon, just don't think Oregon can blow out AZ by mid to high 20's.  Also Zona will throw and play fast tempo till late in the game when if oregon is up big they will run it and waste clock. 

Got any spreadsheet info for the NFL game?

No such thing as easy money when odds are at stake.  But, I'd take it.  I do think though that Bama will face it's toughest defense to date when they play at Ole Miss.  You also have to consider that Vegas tends to give home team a 7 point advantage.  That means do you see Bama a -14 team at home in this game?  Also this new bama QB has not taken a snap in a hostile environment.  Will be a good game to watch.
