Sunday Free Pick - MLB 5/15/11

Another Salami rainout yesterday.  We're still going for 3 wins in a row on our blog.  Today, we're taking the Reds and Travis Woods over an aging Carpenter and St. Louis.  The two best offenses in MLB go head-to-head in a battle for first place in the NL Central.  I like Cincy for a few reasons (with many reasons backed up by historical biases):

  • Home team value
  • Pitching match-up
  • Pitching (youth & upside vs. potential age/decline)
  • Public sentiment on the bigger-name Carpenter.
