Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 5/30/17
Back to the regular blogs tomorrow. Meanwhile, today’s edition consists of my Monday result rundown, the daily plug, and the Tuesday free play.
I managed a 2-1 Monday. The loss was clean as a whistle, as my Over Phillies-Marlins was toast pretty early. I ran into Edinson Volquez on one of his good control nights. Fortunately, the Mets got to the winner’s circle as did the underdog Braves, so a nice little profit for the evening and we move on to Tuesday.
Just two more days remaining to get in on the one-month special with the money back guarantee. I’ll maintain it’s the best guarantee anyone in this industry is offering. Full month of plays, with a +5 net unit profit in baseball the minimum, or it’s money back plus another month free. The package also includes any other plays I have in other sports.

The Mets came through as the Monday free play winner. I’m right back with the same two teams tonight, only this time I’m playing the Over/Under prop.
BREWERS at METS (Davies/Pill)
Take: OVER 9 -105
Zach Davies will take the mound for Milwaukee tonight as they try to even up their series with the Mets on the heels of the 4-2 Monday loss.
Davies is in pretty much typical form. The Brewers righty rarely dominates but usually does well enough to keep his team in the game with a chance to win. He’s up against a New York offense that has been very productive lately in spite of the continues absence of Yoenis Cespedes. I don’t see Davies necessarily getting blown up here, but I do think the Mets can put a few on the board against him.
Tyler Pill will take the hill for his first big league start. Pill has been in the Mets organization for several years. He figures to be heading back to Las Vegas with Matz and Lugo about to rejoin the parent team shortly, so this is probably a one or two-shot deal for Pill.
Pill is not really considered to be a prospect at this point, and I’m not sure his stuff is going to play at this level. Pill is a soft tosser who needs to be pinpoint with his location. He has pitched well for the 51’s, but I suspect potential trouble looms against a potent Milwaukee lineup.
I would imagine this is a bullpen battle from the sixth inning on, and it’s not like either of the entries has sensational relievers, so I think there’s a very good chance this become a fairly high scoring game. Not much wind to factor in, but projected breeze is is out to left center, so no red flags on that count. I’m giving the offenses the edge tonight and will try the Brewers and Mets Over the number.
