MLB Gambling News: Documents show Rose bet while as a player

06.22.2015     02:03 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This shouldn't come as a shock but Pete Rose did in fact bet on baseball as a player. Rose initially denied any sort of gambling but then softened his stance admitting that it took place while he was a manager. But according to ESPN's Outside the Lines, documents show that while as a player, Rose was pretty much betting on everything, including his own team.

 

"We knew that [Bertolini] recorded the bets, and that he bet himself, but we never had his records. We tried to get them. He refused to give them to us," Dowd said. "This is the final piece of the puzzle on a New York betting operation with organized crime. And, of course, [Rose] betting while he was a player."

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago Cubs at Minnesota Twins

Chicago (Arrieta) -115 at Minnesota (Gibson) O/U 8
Recommendation: Under


Minnesota's Kyle Gibson remains somewhat under-the-radar in the betting markets. Long considered just another soft-tossing, no-upside righty the Twins seems to have a fondness for, Gibson has shown flashes of being an above average American League starter. Through 13 starts, he's posted a solid 3.33 ERA and while his K and FIP numbers aren't eye-popping I tend to give guys who have groundball rates above 50% more room for error. This isn’t a bad matchup as through this point in the season the Cubs' offense shows to be a bit weaker against right-handers. Chicago's Jake Arrieta heads into today off one of his worst starts of the season as the left-hand heavy Indians got to him for four runs. Following the game, Arrieta had said it was nothing more than missing a few spots. I look for him to bounce back today against a Twins lineup that ranks 23rd in MLB with a .677 OPS vs. righties. Some of Arrieta's success no doubt stems from a move from the AL East to the NL but he's really learned how to pitch over the last few seasons and has the numbers to back it up (82 IP, 74 hits, Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks

San Diego (Shields) -110 at Arizona (De La Rosa) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: San Diego


Momentum can be a funny thing in baseball. The San Diego Padres had endured a rough 4-game losing streak which partially led to the dismissal of manager Bud Black earlier this week and Pat Murphy becoming the interim manager for the rest of the season. The Padres losing streak was finally snapped on Thursday afternoon with a 3-1 win over the Oakland Athletics and now that this team has finally tasted a victory, might we see a bit of a turn in the other direction for what has been an underachieving team? They certainly have one of the guys they want to have on the mound to keep the winning vibe going tonight with James Shields who is coming off an absolute gem in his last start (7 IP, 1 ER vs. LAD). It was part of a nice run for Shields as he's allowed 3 runs or less in six of his last seven trips to the hill. He had a bit of a tough time when he faced Arizona earlier this season but the Diamondbacks collectively still own a paltry .208 team batting average in 77 career ABs against him. On the flip side, Rubby De La Rosa has had his share of troubles allowing 16 runs on Read more

MLB Betting News: Phillies call up walk-prone starter vs. Cardinals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Considering the current state of the Phillies' rotation, being called up in mid-June is probably a good indication you're a "fringe" arm. With Cole Hamels out with a bum hamstring, the Phils called up Phillippe Aumont who sports some pretty crazy stats. To start, Aumont is 6-7, grew up in Quebec, was drafted in the first round back in 2007 (!) and has thrown only 39.2 innings at the big league level. Now let's get to the really interesting part. Aumont has a small issue with control and by small we mean really big. In nearly 500 IP of work in the minors, his BB per 9 rate is 5.6! And of those 39.2 innings in the bigs, he issues 27 free passes. On a positive note, since turning pro, he's averaged over a strikeout per inning. Aumont is a +180 home underdog vs. St. Louis for tonight.


"Walks happen," Aumont said, "happened my whole life. They are going to keep happening. I'm not going to lose sleep over it, but I'm looking to improve on that."

MLB Gambling: Boston's Rodriguez back on hill after sub-par outing

06.19.2015     08:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston's stud rookie Eduardo Rodriguez finally got smacked around some as he allowed nine runs in 4.2 innings last time out against the Blue Jays. However, his performance may not have been as bad as what showed up on the stat line. The matchup wasn't ideal to begin with but there were a few bloop singles, bad defense, and a pop-up lost in the sun. Basically it was wheelhouse Red Sox baseball. Rodriguez takes the hill tonight in Kansas City as a +115 underdog.


“The way that team’s playing right now, everything’s falling their way,” Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart said of the Blue Jays, who tied a franchise record with their 11th consecutive win. “There were a bunch of bloop singles, a broken-bat single. During that (fourth inning), there was one ball that was hit hard, and that was (Ryan Goins’) home run. … (Rodriguez) was making his pitches. That’s just the way baseball is right now for those guys.”

MLB Handicapping: De La Rosa and Shields strong vs. righties, weak vs. lefties

06.19.2015     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some interesting dynamics to consider for tonight's San Diego-Arizona game. Both lineups are predominantly right-handed and will be tasked with facing two right-handed starters that both show very strong splits. San Diego's James Shields has been filthy on righties this season (.207 BAA, 5.82 K/BB ratio) but very weak against lefties (.289 BAAA, 2.86 K/BB ratio). The same can be said for Arizona's Rubby De La Rosa (.213 BAA, 5.44 K/BB ratio vs. righties; .321 BAA, 2.33 K/BB ratio vs. lefties). Who has the advantage (the game is currently a pick 'em) may come down to which team can platoon the most left-handed bats. Bettors would be advised to check out the lineups once they are released later this afternoon.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: San Francisco Giants at Seattle Mariners

San Francisco (Vogelsong) at Seattle (Montgomery) -140 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Seattle


The Giants lineup is ice cold once again.  They were shut out last night, the fifth time in their last six games that San Francisco has been held to two runs or less.  We saw similar offensive struggles for the Giants when lineup sparkplug Hunter Pence was on the DL in April.  His second trip to the DL has been equally disastrous for this slumping lineup.  And with Aoki slumping at the top of the batting order as well, we can expect continued struggles for the Giants offensively.

That’s bad news against an unfamiliar lefty, as Mike Montgomery takes the hill for Seattle today.  Each of Montgomery’s first three big league starts has been strong, allowing only four runs in 19 innings of work.  The former first round pick was dealt to Seattle this past offseason; a guy who ranked among the Top 20 prospects in baseball earlier in his minor league career.  Behind him, Seattle’s bullpen is rested and ready following another gem from King Felix last night.

And it’s not hard to make a case for Read more

MLB Handicapping: Injuries be damned as Rays sit atop AL East

06.18.2015     09:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The American League East is a jumbled mess with four team all within two games of one another. But at the top of the heap is the Tampa Bay Rays (+6 units) who despite a litany of key injuries, continue to play great baseball. What should worry the rest of the division is a number of their injured players are expected to return at some point. The Rays sport the second-best ERA in the AL at 3.39 despite having what we would consider four above average starters currently on the shelf -- two of which haven't even thrown a pitch this season.

Alex Cobb - Tommy John, out for the season.

Matt Moore - Currently rehabbing after last year's Tommy John surgery. Owns a career ERA of 3.53 in 347 IP.

Desmond Jennings - Not much with the bat but a plus defender, Jennings (knee surgery) has played in only 18 games.

Drew Smyly - Made three starts (2.70 ERA) but shoulder problems put in on the DL. There's a chance he'll return after the All-Star break.

James Loney - Loney's been out since late May with a bum finger. Last season, he batted .290 with 69 RBI. This season, he's played in only 30 games.

Jake Odorizzi - Posted a 2.47 ERA in 12 Read more
