MLB Handicapping: Red Sox pitchers improve under Willis' watch

05.25.2015     08:05 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Don't get carried away but since Boston brought in new pitching coach Carl Willis, the staff as a whole has enjoyed a decent amount of improvement. There's was really no where to go but up but in 15 games under Willis’ watch, the staff ERA is 3.57. Prior to that it was around 5.00. One of the biggest upswings has been Wade Miley who over his last three outings has allowed only three runs. Similar situation with today's starter, Joe Kelly, who coughed up five rf more runs in four straight games but has since buckled down with back-to-back quality starts.

"He's trying to get his arms around the bigger picture with each individual guy," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "He's about making gradual changes and sudden changes, not to come in like he's the white knight and he's just going to make immediate changes with everyone. I think you risk losing credibility with an individual if you do that. He's establishing relationships."

"It then becomes a question of what's going on here [with

MLB Handicapper Free Play: New York Mets at Pittsburgh Pirates

New York (Harvey) at Pittsburgh (Burnett) -110 O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Under

We'll continue to get involved with New York Mets ace Matt Harvey as today we take a look at the under for his start against Pittsburgh. Last week I mentioned that Harvey was using his slider more now that he's built up strength from last year's arm injury. Over his last two outings he's used his slider more than 22% of the time and absolutely dominated the opposition with 15 innings of scoreless baseball and 19 strikeouts. He should be good to go against a Pirates team that out of 15 National League teams ranks 12th in runs scored and 13th in slugging. The Mets may also be walking into a buzzsaw as AJ Burnett continues to churn out upper-tier numbers. He's yet to allow more than two earned runs in a start and while his path thus far (1.38 ERA) is unsustainable, at home, against light-hitting New York, I project another quality performance. After storming out of the gates, the Mets have come back down to earth with a 9-11 record in May. The pitching remains solid but offensively, not so much, with really poor .230/.291/.349/.639 splits this month. Wind not expected to be a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox

Minnesota (Hughes) +110 at Chicago (Samardzija) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Minnesota

My clients and I cashed an underdog winner earlier this week with the Minnesota Twins and I’m more than willing to come right back and endorse them tonight. There is something to be said about momentum in baseball and the Minnesota Twins have it right now after winning 14 of their last 19 games. As for tonight’s two starters, I don’t see a whole lot of difference between Phil Hughes and Jeff Samardzija. Both have had ups and downs and battled inconsistency however Hughes is at least feeling some positive momentum having gone 7 innings while yielding only 2 runs on 5 hits against Tampa Bay his last time out. Hughes allowed just 3 runs in 6 innings in his prior start against the White Sox and his overall numbers when facing the current White Sox roster are solid as he’s allowed a collective .250 batting average. Hughes once again shows a sparkling 35-5 K-to-BB ratio. His biggest knock is the 10 home runs allowed in 51 IP but he should be aided by what expects to be cooler temps and a slight wind in front left field. On the flip side, the Chicago Read more

MLB Handicapping: San Diego Padres struggle with gopher ball

05.21.2015     06:14 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
One of the many perks of FanGraphs is their ability to help baseball bettors better understand when things aren't going according to plan and whether or not we should expect said things to continue. The other day it was the Minnesota Twins and their "ability" to come through in the clutch. Now we have the San Diego Padres who through 41 games can best be described as "ho-hum" as they enter tonight a game under .500. It's no secret that the offense is much improved but the defense stinks and the bullpen has arguably been the worst in baseball. But one of the biggest problems for the Pads has been keeping the ball in the ballpark. The team's HR/FB ratio is on pace for historical levels despite 22 games taking place in Petco Park and nine others in Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. According to FanGraphs, the high longball rate has cost the team roughly three wins. Now the question becomes, will it continue?

If you can believe it, the Padres have allowed more home runs than any other team in baseball. They’ve allowed two more than the Brewers,

MLB Handicapper Free Play: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

St. Louis (Martinez) -105 at New York (Colon) O/U 7
Recommendation: St. Louis

The past couple outings for Bartolo Colon have been shaky at best and look like an indicator to jump in with the few who already are on this “fade train.” As a one-pitch pitcher (85.6% fastballs this season) whose one pitch averages 88 MPH and is constantly around the plate, it’s not tough to see how the aging veteran can be on the decline. What’s most disturbing about the control based Colon’s last couple of starts is not just the fact that he’s given up 15 hits and nine earned runs over the 11 innings, but that 10 of those 15 hits allowed (67%) have gone for extra bases (seven 2Bs and three HRs). Cardinals’ starter Carlos Martinez has run into some trouble lately as well posting a 10.29 ERA, 2.36 WHIP and an extremely high average of 21.0 PPI over his last three starts. However, it seems much more probable that the young righty bounces back in this spot considering the Mets weak .294 OBP and .341 SLG% vs. righties this season. Martinez’s three-pitch repertoire can be overpowering and New York’s 21.7% K rate vs. Read more

MLB Betting News: Yankees place Ellsbury on the DL

05.20.2015     08:06 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Significant injury for the New York Yankees with Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) headed to the DL. The Yankees rank second in MLB with a .399 on-base percentage from the lead-off spot -- most of which courtesy of Ellsbury. He also leads the American League in stolen bases with 14. Brett Garnder will likely assume the lead-off role. Ellbury's absence changes the dynamic of the Yankees' lineup with Ellsbury, a lefty, batting .333 vs. right-handers. Chris Young, who is slated to replace him, shows an extremely strong split (.189 vs. righties, .368 vs. lefties).

MLB Handicapping: Indians send Marcum to the hill vs. White Sox

05.20.2015     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Cleveland Indians will cart out veteran Shaun Marcum for a spot start tonight against the Chicago White Sox. Marcum hasn't started a game since 2013 though threw five innings (1 ER, 3 BBs, 4 Ks) during mop-up duty back in early April. Marcum has been pitching for Triple-A Columbus where he compiled a 4-0 record and 1.36 ERA in five starts. The quote from manager Terry Francona is pretty telling as Marcum put up similar stats to that of Bruce Chen while pitching in the minors. After being called up Chen allowed 17 hits and nine earned runs in 6.1 inning and earlier this week announced his retirement.

"Shaun and Chen put up fairly similar numbers at Columbus," said Francona. "Shaun has been with us for two years. He's rehabbed a bunch and he's worked hard to get this opportunity."
