Fred and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season.
Last Week: Robledo (14-9); Ramirez (14-9).
Season: Robledo (67-23); Ramirez (62-28).
Last week: Fred and I didn’t have a great week. We missed nine times, including Claremont over Rowland, Rosemead over San Marino and Rancho Cucamonga over Charter Oak. I was the only won in the group to pick San Dimas over Monrovia, and I got Fred by going with West Covina over Glendora. But I also gave both of those back, losing with Chino over Northview and Montclair over Workman, which Fred predicted correctly.
This week: There are some big games this week, starting with Monrovia vs. South Hills on Thursday at Covina District Field. I’m going with the Huskies to bounce back from last week’s debacle at Tesoro. I’m just not sure Monrovia can recover initially from the loss to San Dimas in which it led 28-7 with eight minutes left. The other big games are Azusa vs. La Puente in an early showdown in the Montview League; Diamond Ranch at Diamond Bar and West Covina at Walnut in the Hacienda. My desk says go with Azusa, Diamond Ranch and West Covina.
Note: Fred will update his picks later
