Cubs Win!

Thanks to an early two-run homer by Derek Lee, the Cubs took care of the Dodgers today, 3-1. As expected, Ryan Dempster pitched well, so the Cubbies didn't need the offense to dominate as it has all year. The Cubs win means another win for our Free MLB Picks, which, after a slow start, are now at 9-9 on the year.

That record doesn't do justice to how hot the picks have been lately though, as they are now 5-1 in the last six. Did we mention they had a slow start?

Regardless, the picks are clearly heating up, and this last stretch has been more like what we've grown accustomed to with this system.
