Shane’s Free Pick
It’s going to be a big year for Freeland, and it starts in his first game of the season where he picked up a win and didn’t give up any runs. The Nationals offense is going to really struggle to score and that will be the difference as the Rockies are going to get the job done. Back the Rockies on the money line.
