Mike Blowers Knew You Would Read This Post

Journeyman everything Mike Blowers spent 11 years in the majors, but he should've spent that time in Vegas instead because the guy is scary good at predicting the outcome of baseball games—right down to the pitch counts.

Blowers now works in the Seattle Mariners broadcast booth and before last night's game against the Blue Jays, his partner asked for his "Pick to Click." Not only did Blowers choose infielder Matt Tuiasosopo as his player of the game, he predicted that the rookie would hit his first major league home run. In his second at bat. Off a fastball. On a 3-1 count. Into the second deck.

Take a guess what happened next. (And then listen to the call.)

Tuiasosopo's line: 1-4 with a HR (1, 5th inning off B. Tallet 0 on, 0 Out, 3-1 count) Spooky. You do not want this guy in your fantasy league.
