Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 7/21/19
Let’s wrap up the week on a winning nite. My Saturday baseball managed a small overall profit of roughly +0.8 units thanks to the exciting rally by Oakland. I did give that back with a disappointing showing by the CFL Eskimos. Here’s the comp for Sunday.
METS (Matz) at GIANTS (Menez)
Take: GIANTS -120
The Giants finally lost one yesterday but I like them to rebound here. The lefty Conner Menez makes his big league debut. He’s a decent prospect with a four-pitch mix. Best offering is a fastball, and he throws from a 3/4 arm slot, so there should be some deception in his delivery. No issues going against Matz, who doesn’t go very deep into games these days and who has also been terrible on the road. Menez will have a huge rooting section here, as he grew up nearby San Francisco and I’d say he should be pretty comfortable with the surroundings. Giants get my bet today.
