Divisional Dominator - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #957 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in New York Mets vs Philadelphia Phillies @ 7:10 ET - Both teams have shaky bullpens but we've seen this total drop from a 9 to an 8.5 because of the Bryce Harper situation. Though X-rays were negative he may not play today due to trouble gripping the bat after being nailed on the hand by a Steven Matz pitch last night. Keep in mind, the Phillies have plenty of other contributors in the lineup other than just Harper. That said, I love the over in this spot because Philadelphia just faced Marcus Stroman last weekend and though he only allowed 2 earned runs he did allowed 7 hits in 6 innings. Keep in mind August was his first month with the Mets and he got hit at a .301 clip last month. The point is that they adjustment to the National League has not gone well for Stroman and I expect the Phillies potent lineup to do some damage in this one. However, the issue for the Phillies is the fact that Drew Smyly is on the mound. He is 3-6 with a 6.65 ERA on the season and has been struggling in recent weeks for Philly. The southpaw has allowed 9 homers in his last 25.1 innings. The over is a perfect 4-0 in New York's last 4 games. Also, the Mets have won 5 of their past 7 games thanks in large part to great production from their lineup as they have scored an average of 7 runs per game their past 7 games. With this total dropping to an 8.5, a pair of sub-par bullpens, and two starting pitchers each struggling in many of their outings since changing teams, I look for plenty of runs in this one. 10* OVER the total in the New York Mets
