I admittedly haven’t watched much baseball the last month or two. There are many of you reading this who have a more thorough, encyclopedic knowledge of recent results than I could ever hope to have.

Here are some things I know: in our baseball chat, smart people — people who bet on baseball and think about the game in a detailed way — are unanimously insistent that the under is a great idea here.

Their support for such claims involve regular-season statistics, recent statistics, etc., meaning things that have occurred in the past six months.

Paul Lo Duca also gave a compelling case for this game in his write-up. Both of these starting pitchers are really good, so I see where he’s coming from for his play. But, I’m coming from a different angle — expecting the unexpected.
