New York Yankees vs. Colorado Rockies Tuesday Free Pick: For the first time this year, the New York Yankees are going to have to go on the road and play with National League rules. They are still -108 favorites on the MLB betting lines against the Colorado Rockies in spite of the fact that these two teams have very comparable records. The first pitch in thrown in this MLB Network game at 8:40 p.m. ET at Coors Field, and we are making our MLB picks in what should be a great clash.

The Yankees are at a point that they are just too overrated for our tastes. Remember that they are still playing without OF Curtis Granderson, 1B Mark Teixeira, SS Derek Jeter and 3B Kevin Youkilis, and SS Eduardo Nunez, who is one of the only healthy Major League ready infielders on the left side of the infield at this point, has a rib injury and might not be able to be in the fold. We have an appreciation for RHP Hiroki Kuroda as one of the truly elite pitchers in the game at this point in spite of his age. We don’t think all that much of LHP Jorge De La Rosa and his 4.18 ERA this year, but we think that he is due for a heck of an offensive effort from his team. The Rockies have alternated wins and losses in their last seven games, and if that keeps up on Tuesday night, they’ll be back in the win column. Yankees vs. Rockies Free Pick for May 7th: Take the Colorado Rockies -102
