It's an off day as the Orioles travel up to Boston for the weekend series. They went 2-1 in New York, what are your predictions against the Red Sox?

Are you playing Pick 6? How did your team do last night? I didn't have much luck despite a good game from Justin Verlander. Shoulda picked Jered Weaver! His no-hitter was good for 30 points . The first game today begins at 12:10, so be sure to get your picks in before then. The weekly leader boards are calculated Monday-Sunday and I'm thinking of trying a week-long Pick 6 contest next week, so keep an eye out for the announcement.
