MLB Handicapping: Giants have second half scheduling edge over Dodgers

07.16.2014     08:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After a torrid start to the season, the San Francisco Giants fell hard and come out the All-Star break one game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West. But on paper, the second half schedule looks to heavily favor the Giants.

The Dodgers open with a nine-game road trip (at St. Louis, at Pittsburgh, and at San Francisco) and then return home for a three-game set vs. Atlanta. After a three-game series vs. the Cubs, LA plays its next 11 games vs. the Angels, Brewers, and Atlanta -- nine of those 11 on the highway. They also play six of their nine games vs. San Francisco on the road.

The Giants meanwhile don't play Atlanta or St. Louis and have 11 games vs. Philadelphia and New York. And 13 of their final 19 games are against Arizona and San Diego. The Dodgers do have the benefit of play the Giants and Rockies at home the final seven games of the year.

St. Louis (Martinez) at Milwaukee (Peralta) -115 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under


Two “premium stuff” arms take the hill this afternoon in Milwaukee.  St. Louis’ Carlos Martinez averages 98 mph with is fastball, while also offering a sinker, change-up and slurve.  He’s not a household name – yet – but owns some of the nastiest stuff around for a starting pitcher in the National League.  His repertoire is especially lethal on the right-handed bat, which is a perfect fit against the Brewers.  In his early career, Martinez owns a huge split with right-handers slugging just .276 against him, while left-handers see him much better at .469.  Meanwhile, Wily Peralta will take the bump for the Brew Crew.  Peralta deals off a sinker that averages 97 mph with a slider and still-developing change-up.  When Peralta’s right the sinker is all he needs, while garnering groundball after groundball.  Importantly, Peralta Read more

Minnesota (Correia) at Colorado (Matzek) -145 O/U 10.5
Recommendation: Over


It is scary to think that Colorado rookie Tyler Matzek has a 5.89 ERA in Coors Field and yet has allowed only one home run. Yes, it's only three starts but Matzek is already showing signs of not being an ideal fit for Denver. In 35 innings of work, Matzek flashes a 22-11 K-to-BB ratio as well as a 44% groundball rate. He's a first round draft pick and only 23 years old so I'll leave the door open for success down the road. But right now, expect the struggles to continue. Like Matzek, Minnesota's Kevin Correia has been fortunate with the long ball. The fly balling Correia has tossed 103.1 innings, struck out only 49, and allowed only 11 home runs. Putting a guy like that in Coors Field is a recipe for disaster – or in our case, celebration. Bottom line is we have two mediocre, pitch-to-contact, fly ball pitchers with a total of less than 11. Hope we can avoid the rain and get this one OVER the Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies

Washington (Zimmermann) -140 at Philadelphia (Burnett) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Washington


Since the beginning of June, Jordan Zimmermann has been as good as any pitcher in baseball.  In seven starts, he has a 1.26 ERA with a 46-7 strikeout to walk ratio in 50 innings of work.  Zimmermann won 19 games last year and ranked among the best pitchers in baseball with a 4.4 WAR and 2.94 ERA in 2012. This hot streak is no fluke.

Zimmermann’s quote sums it up well: “I just started throwing strikes and locating better. The slider finally came back. I didn't have it for a month and a half. I was able to get that back. That's a big pitch."

His streak started with a dominating performance against the same Phillies lineup he’ll face today, throwing eight innings of shutout ball.  He certainly shut down Philadelphia on a consistent basis last year, allowing only four earned runs while notching three wins in four starts against Read more

Arizona (Bolsinger) at -San Francisco (Lincecum) -150 O/U 7
Recommendation: San Francisco


There are a lot of conflicting angles when it comes to judging Arizona's Mike Bolsinger. On one hand he flashes a sexy sabermetric profile of a pitcher who gets groundballs (53.9%), sports an unlucky BABIP (.347), and misses a fair amount of bats (8.18 Ks per 9). But I've watched enough of his starts to know that he's a fringe arm and wouldn't sniff a spot in the rotation if not for all of Arizona's injuries and shortcomings. If he pitches the rest of the year I firmly expect his "impressive" xFIP (3.33) to creep toward his sub-par ERA (5.13) and not the other way around. Despite San Francisco trending in the wrong direction, Tim Lincecum has upped his game with only one earned run in his last three starts. Two of those were against weak hitting San Diego but he appears to finally be in solid form after a rough start to the season. After losing three of four to rival Oakland, the Giants have a good chance to rebound with a three-game set vs. Arizona before the All-Star Read more

MLB Handicapping: Molina's injury comes at bad time for Cardinals

07.10.2014     03:26 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like St. Louis will be without All-Star catcher Yadier Molina (thumb) for 8-12 weeks. Molina obviously impacts the game a number of ways. For starters he’s an underrated commodity offensively (.287/.341/.751) – and at times has been St. Louis’ best bat. Secondly, and most obvious, is the countless ways he helps the team defensively. He all but completely shuts down opposing teams’ run games (49% caught stealing, league average 26%). And just as important is the way he handles the pitching staff. Tony Cruz is a more than adequate backup, but keep in mind the Cardinals are down three starters with Jamie Garcia, Michael Wacha, and Joe Kelly on the shelf. And Tyler Lyons, Marco Gonzales, Miller, and Martinez are all young and/or have had recent struggles. Molina is just the kind of catcher to help those guys power through tough situations. This year's numbers with Cruz behind the plate aren't that far removed from that of Molina – and Cruz has caught Adam Wainwright only once. But last year, with a larger sample size, the team's ERA with Read more

Pittsburgh (Volquez) at St. Louis (Miller) O/U 8
Recommendation: Over


St. Louis has given Pittsburgh starter Edinson Volquez fits over the years with Volquez owning a 5.58 ERA in 13 career outings. Volquez has allowed two runs over his last 21 innings of work which is impressive but not so much when you consider he was facing the Phillies, Mets and Rays. Volquez was hammered in his previous visit to Busch Stadium this season allowing 6 runs on 7 hits in 5.2 innings. The Cardinals have finally found some traction offensively scoring 4+ runs in four of their last five games and should match up well here. Shelby Miller has certainly come back down to earth having allowed 16 runs on 29 hits in 19.1 innings over his last four starts and he's walked as many batters as he's struck out. Pittsburgh will never be known as an explosive offense but they have had some previous success against Miller particularly last year and this will be their third time facing him this season so I expect the Read more

MLB Handicapping: Mariners to start reliever Wilhelmsen vs. Twins

Minnesota (Pino) at Seattle (Wilhelmsen) -160 O/U 8

Bettors should be prepared to see a multitude of arms for the Seattle Mariners tonight as reliever/spot starter Tom Wilhelmsen is projected to go only 3-4 innings. Despite Roenis Elias lasting on 3.1 innings last night, Seattle's bullpen is in pretty good shape thanks to a handful of extended outings over the last week.

And a week removed from boasting about Seattle's impressive +70 run differential (as of 7/3) the offense has taken a complete nosedive. Over the last six games the Mariners have been outscored 20-7.


“He’s a power arm,” Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. “He’s got four Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: New York Yankees at Cleveland Indians

NY Yankees (McCarthy) -110 at Cleveland (Tomlin) O/U 8
Recommendation: Over


No question Brandon McCarthy has pitched better than his raw numbers but I'm not convinced a "fresh" start in New York is going to spark significant change. For starters, the move to the American League, particularly the East, is a significant step up in class. And with McCarthy being such a heavy groundball pitcher (55.3%) he needs a strong infield defense for support. He pitched behind a mediocre one in Arizona and it gets even worse in New York with the Yankees ranking near the bottom of a number infield defense metrics. Lastly, tonight's matchup vs. Cleveland is far from ideal with one of McCarthy's biggest issues this season being that of the left-handed bat. Even though he's been unlucky in a lot of respects, lefties are still hitting .323 vs. McCarthy. Josh Tomlin has been up and down this season and despite shutting out Seattle two starts ago his ERA is above 5.00 over his last six outings. Read more
