    Mikolas v. Bumgarner

    Pomeranz had been pitching well of late...but the Cards jumped all over him early and often with the wind blowing out at Oracle and despite Hudson finding some trouble as well...ended up not being all that close.

    The cap today is basically the same...and while Vegas hung the Cards as a favorite only to be immediately bought to dog with MadBum on the mound it's a different story.  He is the favorite for both first 5 and full game...and correctly so.  As we have mentioned in the recent past...only 1 team boasts 4 starters in the "top" 20 for HR/FB rate and it is the Cards with Waino, Hudson, Mikolas, and Flaherty ALL north of 20% rate...however many fly balls one is allowing, 1 of 4 or 1 of 5 of them leaving the park is grim and not helpful to the team attempting to back them for a win.  Especially when they get a still very much auditioning Madison Bumgarner.

    Mikolas has put together some solid outings...but overall his metrics are <<  Hudson and now the Giants throw an even better lefty at the struggling Cards offense...and while this feels like I am looking for vindication for last night...I agree it's not easy to get right back on the horse after being sent flying so far...if you had told me which game I'd like most IF they were to lose 9-4 it would be backing the Giants tonight!

    The value at such an almost pickem range is immense!
