St. Louis Cardinals vs. New York Yankees
MLB Prediction: Yankees -136 odds (April 16th 2017)

At 8:05 pm, our complimentary selection is on the New York Yankees over the St. Louis Cardinals.  RHP Adam Wainwright used to be one of the best pitchers in baseball, coming back from two different season-ending injuries (Tommy John surgery and a torn Achilles).  But it seems like finally father time may be catching up to the now-35-year-old, as Wainwright is coming off of his highest ERA season since he came into the league and has looked far too easy to hit in his first two starts of 2017.  Wainwright is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in just nine innings, and if he doesn’t do something to turn it around, his days as a starter for a team that figures to be in the playoff hunt could be over.  Of course, he’s faced two of the NL’s best in his first two outings, and although the Yankees may not be on a par with the Cubs and Nationals, it will not be easy for Wainwright once again tonight in the Bronx.  And he’s going opposite a RH starter who has had some of the most dominating stuff of the season so far in Michael Pineda.  In two starts, Pineda has pitched 11 2/3 innings with 17 strikeouts and no walks.  His ERA is a bit high due to a sub-par first outing, but Pineda put it all together in his last start, shutting down the Rays over 7 2/3, two-hit innings.  Take the Yankees.  As always, good luck…Al McMordie.
