MLB Handicapper Free Play: Texas Rangers at New York Mets

Texas (Lewis) at NY Mets (Colon) -130 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Under

The stats aren't good for Texas' Colby Lewis as he sports a 5.71 ERA through 14 trips to the hill. And it wasn't until last time out that he recorded his first quality start of the season. But off back-to-back decent efforts (14 Ks, 0 BBs, 12.1 IP) Lewis walks into a favorable situation tonight in New York. For starters, the Mets will serve as one of the worst offense Lewis has faced this season – particularly at Citi Field were they are hitting .223/.649. And Citi Field will be a huge relief as Lewis sports a 6.54 ERA in Texas. Bartolo Colon continues to defy logic with fastballs that bend every which way. Over his last eight starts he sports a 2.20 ERA. Texas is no longer the offensive juggernaut they once were. In fact, only a few statistics suggest they are even American League average. Ultimately though, this game comes down to who is behind the dish, and that, bettors, is Mr. Doug Eddings. Eddings is one of the Read more

MLB Handicapping: Mariners quietly own league's second-best run differential

07.03.2014     07:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Winners of four straight and eight of their last 10, the Seattle Mariners (47-38) are actually thinking postseason – it's been 13 years since the famous 116-win season. They've actually played better than their record with a Pythagorean W-L mark of 51-34 thanks to a +70 run differential. Amazingly that's the second-best mark in MLB behind Oakland (+125) and +14 ahead of the Angels (+56).

"I don't know how we're doing it," he tells USA TODAY Sports. "We're just so offensively challenged. Other teams have a shotgun. We've got a BB gun. So we shoot them between the eyes and try to get the hell out of town before they know what hit them."

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Dodgers

Cleveland (Bauer) at LA Dodgers (Ryu) -150 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Under

If you've read these pages before you know that I am a big fan of Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer who is starting to show more consistency to go along with his swing-and-miss stuff. I think he'll benefit from pitching in a National League park this afternoon as well as it being the Dodgers first-ever look at the hard throwing righty. Hyun-Jin Ryu has been as consistent as they come churning out quality start after quality start this season. Asian pitchers are notoriously tough in first-look situations as not one current Indians player has an AB vs. Ryu. The Tribe has also had a difficult time hitting lefties this season with .244/.313/.350/.663 splits hence their 10-16 record vs. southpaws. This is a true getaway day situation with the afternoon start, LA headed to Colorado, and Cleveland with an off day on Thursday before returning home for a 10-game homestand. Let's play this one UNDER the total.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Texas Rangers at Baltimore Orioles

Texas (Martinez) at Baltimore (McFarland) -135 O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Baltimore

The Texas Rangers have been reeling of late losing 10 of their last 12 games and six straight on the road.  The Baltimore Orioles on the other hand have quietly put together a solid first half of the season that sees them just one game back in the American League East. Baltimore has done most of their damage offensively despite playing without a full lineup for most of the season (Manny Machado, Chris Davis, Matt Weiters, and J.J. Hardy have all missed time).  They are sitting third in the league with a .265 batting average and lead the league in homers for the month of June.  Nick Martinez takes the hill for the Rangers tonight so don't expect the bleeding to stop any time soon.  Martinez has been winless in his last six starts and has seen his ERA balloon to 4.65.  Lefty T.J. McFarland comes out of the bullpen tonight for the Orioles. He’s not going to “wow” anyone Read more

MLB Handicapping: Washington's Strasburg concerned about mechanics

07.01.2014     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Keep an eye of Washington's Stephen Strasburg tonight against Colorado. Following his worst start of the season (4.2 IP, 7 ERs vs. Milwaukee) Strasburg said that his mechanics were out of whack. He's a -250 favorite vs. the Rockies.

“I’m not right mechanically right now, and I think it’s causing [hitters] to see the ball a lot better,” he said. “Happens to everybody. I’m going to keep working hard, and it’s going to turn.”

Asked about the root of the problems, Strasburg was terse: “Still trying to figure that out. Just doesn’t feel the same. Doesn’t look the same.”

“The key for Stephen is going to continue to be to have fastball command early, be able to throw his breaking balls for strikes, use the change-up off of that,” Williams said. “[Wednesday] it was a little backwards.”

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees

Tampa Bay (Archer) +100 at NY Yankees (Phelps) O/U 8
Recommendation: Tampa Bay

Expecting a strong bounce back performance from Tampa’s Chris Archer who entered last Tuesday’s game versus Pittsburgh with a 0.89 ERA in his previous seven starts (40.2 IP).  On top of his strong recent form, Archer has been a problem for the Yankees going 4-0 with a 1.26 ERA and 0.63 WHIP since entering the Rays’ rotation last year. He was able to overcome the dreaded “right hander in Yankee Stadium” syndrome twice last season throwing 15 innings of 1 run ball while posting 10/1 K/BB numbers. Earlier this season he tossed 6.2 against NY allowing just three hits and one run. Tampa comes off a 3-1 series win over division opponent Baltimore this past weekend and gets another chance inside the division to help themselves. The Yanks are scrambling in the AL East as well having lost their final two weekend home games to Boston but tonight’s starter David Phelps just Read more

MLB Handicapping: Giants return to earth, see 9.5-game lead evaporate

06.30.2014     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
After opening June 6-1 and taking a 9.5-game lead in the National League West the San Francisco Giants were poised to run away with the division. But things have taken a dramatic turn of the last three weeks. The offense went cold, the pitching staff regressesed, and following yesterday's loss to Cincinnati, the Giants are now tied with the Dodgers thanks to a 4-15 slide. To make matters worse, closer Sergio Romo was demoted and the team will close by committee moving forward.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers

Colorado (De La Rosa) at Milwaukee (Gallardo)
Recommendation: See analysis

Three starts ago, Colorado's Jorge De La Rosa left early due to some sort of back issue and yet the Rockies continue to throw him on regular rest due to a depleted staff. Over those three starts (two of the three away from Coors), De La Rosa has allowed 20 hits, 13 runs, and shows an ugly 7-7 K-to-BB ratio. And while he's away from Coors this afternoon, he faces the powerful right-hand heavy lineup of Milwaukee – De La Rosa of course much weaker vs. the right-handed bat (.275 BAA, .808 OPS). Simply put, he isn't right and I've been active in finding ways to fade him. Yovanni Gallardo has been under-the-radar this season as he no longer flashes top-tier stuff. But the results have been solid (3.23 ERA, 3.62 xFIP). He's changed his arsenal some and it has resulted in a career-best 53.3% groundball rate. I still think Gallarado has been fortunate based on the diminished stuff but he’s obviously a more Read more
