MLB Rookie of the Year 2010
2010-08-19

There are two very distinct Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo Online Bingo Rooms NFL Betting Lines trends that have developed throughout the course of the 2010 MLB season. One that has captured the attention of the public is the resurgence of great pitching performances, with five no-hitters on year, which still has well over two months to go. Although many have taken to calling this season “The Year of the Pitcher,” it could just as easily be called “The Year of the Rookie.” There are many rookies who have established themselves as future superstars, making the Rookie of the Year voting even more difficult. Here’s an attempt to wade through all the superstar rookies and determine who the recipients of the award in each league should be.

National League: Although both leagues have an abundance of young talent, you would have to give the overall edge to the NL if comparing the two. Stephen Strasburg has gotten all the attention, but there is more depth than the casual fan would know.

Early in the year, it appeared as if Jason Heyward would run away with the award. He homered in his opening at-bat and was among the early league leaders in home runs. An injury stymied some of his early-season progress but he was voted in to the All-Star game and has regained his momentum, currently carrying a .276 average, 11 home runs, and 48 RBI. He has an incredibly bright future.

Buster Posey has absolutely dazzled since being called up to the Giants major-league club. He has an astounding .368 average to go along with 8 homers and 33 RBI in a mere 49 games. If he continues the pace he has begun, it’ll be difficult for voters to overlook him at the end of the season.

There are three rookie pitchers who have taken the National League by storm. Mike Leake is unique because he skipped the minor leagues altogether. He has shown that the immediate promotion was justified, starting 19 games and posting a 3.57 ERA to go along with seven wins and just two losses. Jaime Garcia has bettered Leake though; he has a 9-4 record and the lowest ERA of any rookie at 2.21. And then, of course, there is Strasburg. He has certainly not failed to live up to the hype and currently has a 5-2 record and 2.32 ERA. He has astounded many with his command and ability to get strikeouts seemingly at will; he already has 75 in just over 54 innings.

Although Heyward and Leake have had tremendous seasons, this looks to be a three-man race. Garcia has put up tremendous numbers but he doesn’t have the “wow’ factor that Strasburg does. It’s close between those two but I believe Strasburg will continue to only gain momentum, leaving it between him and Posey. Posey may play well the rest of the year but it’s simply too difficult for a rookie to stay near the torrid offensive pace he’s played at. It should be a very close vote but I expect Strasburg to prevail. Strasburg was recently placed on the 15-day disabled list, but if he is able to put up a few spectacular starts after his return, he’ll be tough to vote against. The line at www.sportsbook.com has Jason Heyward at +500 to win the Rookie of the Year for the NL. Could be a very interesting bet to make. He has amazing talent.

American League: The American League may not have the headliners of the National League but has some very good young players nonetheless.
Alfredo Simon has been a good relief pitcher for Baltimore, converting 14 of 16 opportunities and maintaining a 3.03 ERA.

Another solid rookie closer is Neftali Feliz. Although his 3.74 ERA is merely decent, he’s succeeded in 28 of 30 save opportunities and opponents are hitting a paltry .195 against him. The line at www.sportsbook.com agrees as Feliz is the leader according to their current lines at -125 to win the AL Rookie of the Year.
The two best rookies among AL position players are Austin Jackson and Brennan Boesch, both of whom play for the Detroit Tigers. Jackson has proven himself as an outstanding everyday centerfielder, batting .316 and stealing 16 bases with his tremendous speed. Whereas Jackson is a speed player, Boesch has more power. He has already compiled 12 home runs and 51 RBI while maintaining a .310 average. Boesch was one of the biggest All-Star game snubs but he deserves this award as of now and it’s difficult to envision him getting snubbed again, despite his recent slump.


System Play shows Washington at disadvantage
2009-08-19

The Washington Nationals are like the dimmest bulb on a set of outdoor lights, they standout for not shining brightly. While the Nationals have a comfortable lead as the worst team in baseball with 43-76 record (-24.1 units), they do deserve props for playing like paid professionals and not throwing in the towel. Even with last night’s loss, Washington has won eight of 12, thanks to a potent offense that has average 6.6 runs per game, compared to season average of 4.5 runs per contest. (Be certain to review all the latest information for Wednesday’s wagering events by visiting the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.)

In spite of playing better baseball, the Nationals have earned their stripes as the worst team in the game. Washington has the highest earned run average in the National League at 4.98. When the starting pitchers fail, which is often the case, a collection of less than desirable relievers take their place, with an even worse ERA (5.07). Washington’s non-starters have brought little relief as 17-33 record proves and the recent spike in run production has helped the closers get over the .500 mark (.533) since the first week of the season.

The Nats were 4-3 losers to Colorado last night in Game 1 of the series and will face the ace of the Rockies staff, Jason Marquis (13-8, 3.55 ERA). The veteran right-hander has embraced pitching for Colorado and has spearheaded a staff which has contributed mightily to the Rockies leading the wild card race in the senior circuit, while within striking distance of the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers.

Colorado (66-53, +10.6 units) is giving no indication of fading away, winning seven of last 11 and continuing to play surprisingly well on the road with 34-30 record, despite a team batting average of .238.

Colorado is 30-14 (+21.5 Units) against the money line after three or more consecutive road games this season and will face starter Collin Balester (1-2, 6.00), who has been allowing the long ball early and often. The rookie right-hander has surrendered three homers and five runs in each of his last two outings. Washington comes into this contest 13-34 revenging a one run loss to opponent over the last two seasons.
If this doesn’t sound like a great situation for Washington, it’s not and Colorado is a -160 money line favorite at Sportsbook.com. Here is the situation the Nationals face tonight.

Play Against home underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are ordinary offensive team scoring 4.3 to 4.8 runs per game, against a good NL starter (ERA of 3.70 or less), after a loss by two runs or less.
This system has been a reliable winner for a dozen years at 52-14, 78.8 percent. For the most part, these games have not been close, opening the door for potential run line action, with a score differential 2.6 runs. Take a closer look at this contest, the odds lineup in the bettor’s favor on the road favorite.


MLB: Orioles flying high and are slight underdogs
2009-06-24

It was looking like another glum baseball season in Baltimore, especially after the Orioles started 2-8 in June, but quicker than you can say John minus Kate ain’t eight, the O’s have won five in a row and seven of eight. Baltimore (32-37, -3 units) has feasted on the National League with 9-3 record and has six games this week trying to edge even closer to .500, starting in Florida. On Tuesday, Baltimore is a slight +100 dog, and with Florida’s past domination in the series, expect most bettors to be backing the hosts.

The Orioles have everyday lineup has meshed together, scoring 6.1 runs per game during this eight-game period, compared to 4.6 in all games played. Even the Baltimore starting pitchers have been effective. This no-name group has Jeremy Guthrie as the only recognizable name to even a fairly ardent baseball fan.

“I feel like we’ve improved,” Orioles manager Dave Trembley told the team’s official Web site. “There are a lot of things going on. We’re getting contributions from everybody, our bench has contributed, our situational hitting has improved. We’re getting key hits when it counts. We’re playing with confidence and we’re having a lot of fun. That’s what happens when everybody plays as a team.”

That was especially evident in sweep of the defending World Series champs Philadelphia at the there park. The Orioles will face an even greater challenge playing at Landshark Stadium for three games.
Baltimore has just five wins in 18 tries against Florida in interleague action, with only one win in Miami in nine ballgames. In spite of winning three in Philly, the Birds are still feckless 11-20 on the road and 16-35 as visitors dating back to last season.

They will try to get off to good start with Koji Uehara (2-4, 4.30 ERA, 1.253 WHIP), who is a rookie in name only at 34 years old. The Japanese veteran Uehara has not won since April 13, but hasn’t pitched poorly in last nine starts, with more than respectable 3.73 ERA in that span. He’s been too often caught up in the Orioles lack of run production, as Uehara has seen 2.3 runs per start since his last victory.
Baltimore will face left-hander Andrew Miller (2-3, 4.56, 1.559) of the Marlins, who continues flounder. Granted, most lefties take longer to develop, but the 6’6 Miller is not only tall, but has long arms, which has made his ability to have a repeatable delivery difficult. Though his fastball is lively and he has 43 punchouts in 51 1/3 innings, Miller also handed out 27 free passes. The Orioles have beaten the last five lefty starters they have encountered.

Florida (35-36, +0.7 units) has been coming around, with 6-3 record in last nine games, all versus the American League. The offense tends to be like the nearby Atlantic Ocean tide, it rises and drifts away. The best news is the Marlins are 14-6 (+11.9 Units) after five straight games where they had less than 10 hits.

Sportsbook.com has placed Florida in the favorite’s role at -110 on the money line with a total 9. The Fish are 8-3 at home against teams that have less than .400 road record and they are 12-3 OVER when the total is 8.5 to 10 over the last three seasons and Miller is the starter. Baltimore is 2-8 against clubs with losing record and is 23-10 OVER against left-handed starters on the road since last season.

Baltimore last won six straight on April 2-8, 2008 and will try to match that streak starting at 7:10 Eastern on MLB.TV.
