Sports Interaction betting analyst Frank Doyle makes his picks for the Friday night major league matchups.

Baseball handicapping is tricky right now - the All-Star break is looming and interleague games knock the formbook a little out of whack. But the can-do spirit is what made America great so maybe a visit to first principles will help us picks some winners.

The first trick to being a good bettor is admitting the evidence of our eyes. The evidence of our eyes tells us that not only do the Nationals suck, they are looking good for the 1962 Mets' record of 120 losses for the regular season. The Nats struggle to win one game in four, which means that anytime Sports Interaction offers you a price of better than -250 on anyone whom the Nats are playing, take it. It's a bargain.

The Nationals are back home this weekend to host Toronto - the Nats are better at home than on the road, in the same way that a punch in the guts is better than a punch in the head. Good in a very limited sense. On Friday night, the Blue Jays start Brian Tallet, 4-4, 4.87 ERA, against the Nationals' rookie Jordan Zimmerman, 2-3, 5.37 ERA. You have to like the Jays.

It's a battle of struggling Japanese pitchers at Fenway on Friday night when the Braves' Kenshin Kawakami, 3-6, 4.54 ERA, faces Boston's Daisuke Matsuzaka, 1-4, 7.55 ERA. The difference is that Boston has resources in the bullpen and at the plate that the Braves' can't match. Boston gets the nomination.

Sports Interaction will have a value price on the Rays at the Mets on Friday, and that could be worth considering. The Rays are playing well at the moment in what is the searing competitive heat of the AL East, while the Mets are faring less well in the NL East. On Friday the Rays' Andy Sonnanstine, 5-6, 6.65 ERA, is on the hill, and Sonnanstine is no bad pitcher. Injuries have hurt the Rays but the Mets are the Mets, and I think they're vulnerable.

Fernando Nieve, 1-0, 2.08 ERA, will be on the hill at Citi Field and the Mets will start as favorites with Sports Interaction, but I think there's value in the Rays, and they're they final Friday night pick.
