I knew Zach Grienke would not suffer his first career loss to the Giants last night.
You kind of figured the G-MEN were not going to start 0-3 and thankfully they were able to cover the 3 1/2 as well in their 32-21 win over the Redskins.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda is the motto of the day.

It was close, but the Lions and Jaguars did manage to score just 39 points Friday evening,thus the under 41 total was the right play.
The Cardinals scored four in the top of the first and cruised to an easy 9-1 win over the Diamondbacks last night, which made it two in a row for the Play Of The Day.
Picking the over in the Tigers-Reds game was money in the bank yesterday, although when Buck Farmer had not allowed a hit into the fifth I started to worry.

Who would have figured that the Arizona Diamondbacks would not bow to the throne of King Felix Hernandez yesterday.
Last night I took the Twins at home against the Pirates,but the 8-7 Pittsburgh victory did not allow me to have back to back wins.

The undefeated streak ended at four on Friday as Justin Verlander and Rick Porcello somehow managed to keep the Tigers Red Sox game way under the 9 run total.

By: Mike Stone @stoney16 An off duty policeman in Kentucky accidentally shot himself while riding on an elevator the other day. Thankfully he was not seriously hurt. This shows that gun safety is very important even for those who are properly trained.
