MLB Handicapping: King Felix looks to bounceback from K-less outing

05.12.2014     02:08 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As discussed on today's Sportsmemo Podcast with host Andrew Lange and Rob Veno, bettors should keep an eye on Felix Hernandez’s start tonight against Tampa. Last time out against Oakland, King Felix didn't record a single strikeout in 6.1 innings of work and posted a season-low six swinging strikes after averaging 13 his first seven outings. Hernandez did lose some weight after a recent bout with the flu and admitted his stuff was pretty much non-existent. It was also his third start in a month against the platoon-heavy A's. His velocity appeared right in line with his seasonal averages but we'll be watching him closely this evening to see if there are any more red flags.


“No strikeouts,” he said. “Not a good breaking ball. Not a good changeup. That's what happens when you don't have good stuff.”

“I felt fine,” Hernandez insisted. “I just made a lot of mistakes. I was really in the middle of the plate, and they were able to hit it. No excuse. That

MLB Handicapper Free Play: New York Yankees at Milwaukee Brewers

NY Yankees (Sabathia) +125 at Milwaukee (Lohse) O/U 8
Recommendation: New York


We appear to be getting a fair amount of value with CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees tonight in Milwaukee. It's well documented that CC's velocity is down and he isn't the pitcher he was three years ago however his decline has been well accounted for in the betting markets. This year's raw numbers don't look good but Sabathia has pitched significantly better than his 5.75 ERA. His strikeout rate is 9.74 per 9 innings and his xFIP is among the league leaders at 2.89. He'll definitely benefit from facing a National League lineup that is without a power bat in Ryan Braun. Hard to say much bad about Kyle Lohse who continues to thrive in the National League. Some of his numbers lean towards fortunate and unsustainable – and he's typically weaker against left-handed bats which the Yankees have plenty of. Off a poor outing and returning to his old stomping grounds I think Sabathia is sitting on a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Rays

Cleveland (Kluber) +100 at Tampa Bay (Odorizzi) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Cleveland


I'll take the better starting pitcher in this matchup with Cleveland's Corey Kluber taking on Tampa Bay's Jake Odorizzi. Kluber is quietly developing into a top-of-the-rotation American League arm with the ability to miss bats and get groundballs. Since the start of 2013, Kluber's xFIP ranks sixth among qualified AL starting pitchers at 3.10. I was a fan of Odorizzi to start the season but have since cooled my stance after watching a few of his starts. Unlike Kluber, Odorizzi doesn't have swing and miss stuff and thus far he's been an extreme fly ball pitcher. A telltale sign these struggles could continue is that teams are 29-for-61, .475 the second and third time through the order. Also note that Odorizzi hasn't lasted past five innings since his first start of the year; putting extra pressure on a very questionable Rays' bullpen. Both offenses have scuffled of late which makes the starting pitching Read more

MLB Handicapping: Doug Eddings still churning out UNDERS at a high rate

05.07.2014     08:32 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With all of the technological advancements in MLB – most notably QuesTec – we don't see many umpires stray too far from "neutral" when it comes to totals beyond a one or two-year sample. Tim McClelland (over ump) is out for the year and John Hirschbeck (under ump) has missed time due to the death of his son. But there are a few umps that bettors should still be aware of when behind the dish, in particular veteran Doug Eddings. Not including pushes, Eddings had produced 57% unders out of nearly 500 career games. And despite the evolution of the game over the last decade, he's been very consistent. Out of the last 11 seasons, Eddings has trended "over" the total just once – heavily assisted by a 7-1 O/U mark in games lined 7 or less. This season he's been extremely pitcher friendly with a 1-5 O/U record and a ridiculous 105-21 K-to-BB ratio. In six games behind the dish, there have been an average of 5 runs per game, and his strike percentage is 65.4%. Umpire trends can at times be random – favorable/unfavorable pitching matchups, weather, stadiums, etc. But Eddings has a proven track record and a few borderline calls through a game as Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians

Chicago WS (Carroll) at Cleveland (Masterson) -160 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over


After scoring only 13 runs on their recent 0-6 road trip the Cleveland Indians broke out the sticks last night with 12 runs in a win over the White Sox. More production projected tonight as the White Sox sent career minor leaguer Scott Carroll. At 29 years old and a high 80's fastball from the right side, Carroll appears to be another Philip Humber. He threw well in his first start (7.1 IP, 1 ER) vs. Tampa but fanned only three batters and had a grand total of two swinging strikes. Also worth mentioning that during Carroll’s long minor league career, lefties have hit a startling .301 against him. Cleveland's Justin Masterson continues to struggle with his mechanics and velocity. And playing behind a poor infield defense can at times negate his groundball ways. A few weeks ago, Masterson was hammered for five earned runs in 4.2 innings against the White Sox. Chicago leads the American League in runs, Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Baltimore Orioles at Minnesota Twins

Baltimore (Jimenez) at Minnesota (Nolasco) -110 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Minnesota


Ubaldo Jimenez remains an easy fade due to his reduced velocity and lack of command. In 27.1 innings, Jimenez has walked 17 batters and he's averaged only six swinging strikes per game (a 6% rate vs. 8% in 2013). And if walks are going to be an issue, Minnesota isn't a good matchup as the Twins lead the American League with 133 walks and rank second in on-base percentage. Meanwhile Ricky Nolasco toes the rubber for the Twins. Nolasco's overall numbers would make most bettors squirm but his groundball rate is actually a career best 50.5% – he's suffered some due to a sky-high .355 BABIP. Also note that of Nolasco's five starts only one has been in the pitcher friendly confines of Target Field and it was without question his best start of the year (8 IP, 1 ER vs. Kansas City). Also in our favor is the potential fatigue factor with Baltimore playing a double-header at home yesterday – the last Read more
