We continue to post winner after winner here at the Sportsbook Room on our best bet as we cashed again yesterday as the Philadelphia Phillies get the shut out win against the hapless San Diego Padres. We have gone against the Padres most of the season as the club really lacks star power within their batting order and pitching staff.
