The first round of ranked choice voting is in. Eric Adams is still ranked first, Kathryn Garcia is a close second and the Arizona Diamondbacks are ranked 30th. Snakes are in St. Louis.
The D’backs have been eliminated from postseason play and the underachieving Cardinals are well on their way. The matchup features two pitchers who are not likely to finish what they’ve started.
Arizona’s Riley Smith (1-3, 5.71 ERA) has appeared in 19 games but has made just five starts, all when the season was young. Reinserted into the rotation to face Kwang Hyun Kim (1-5, ERA 3.98). Kwang gave us no bang for our buck when we backed him against the Bucs in his last start. Failed to deliver, allowing four runs over four frames. Taking the D’backs for 10 units.
“The season is on the line.” You got that right Aaron Boone. Jays got us pointed in the right direction, buffaloing the Mariners 9-3. Seattle tied it at three. Toronto responded, scoring six unanswered. ‘W’ takes us to -1,315 oleruds.
