I did follow them. Big step up from that hack Swerbie had in there originally. I still don't know how someone who drinks as much as Swerb was able to put this crew together on the website. Quality stuff!

And on second thought, I'm changing my pick tonight from the White Sox to the Mariners. Makes no sense to coat tail Leadquarters at this point. You're about 5 more wins from clinching! I need to start cheering against you every night!

Can Byrdie send the Lead Man to a two game losing streak? Takes balls to go against Paul Byrd!


Hate to go against the home team, but in the gambler's den the Lead Man is ALL business. There are no rooting favorites, no home teams and zero prejudices. Just winners and losers. Lead is in the business of picking winners.

As far as picking agianst Paul Byrd, Lead understands that a guy who gives up about 85 missles a game can only keep his ERA under 5 for so long. I'll give him credit thus far, but I'd imagine by the end of the year it'll be hard to find someone that won't think he blows. The day the ole' "double windup" fools a major league hitter will be the same day the Lead man gambles himself into the red.

Lead Man, in the clubhouse today by 3:30.

Lead do you have a handicapping website? I ran one a long time ago--probably been four or five years--before finally selling the site. There is no better product to sell than "information." No production cost!

I mostly just picked totals for baseball, though.

No website. An occasional article on this site, and then come football season, the weekly picks columns. If you check out the Lead Man's archive here from the fall, you can read about him running over the man this past fall.
