Bochy, Giants give best Bumgarner impersonations
2014-11-18

As the team basks in its spirited offseason, they've continued to participate in appearances and segments that bring them a little closer to MLB's fan base.

The latest is a sitdown where manager Bruce Bochy, shortstop Brandon Crawford, catcher Buster Posey, pitchers Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez and Tim Hudson, as well as outfielders Hunter Pence and Michael Morse all take a stab at impersonating World Series MVP and two-time All-Star Madison Bumgarner.

It's quite a hoot.

Itís Never Too Early for World Series Predictions
2010-08-19

The end of July unofficially signals the beginning of phase two of the Major League Baseball season. With the contenders definitively pulling away from the pretenders in each division, the playoff picture is starting to take shape, and baseball betting is watching.


The next few months will make or break each teamís chances, as history as proven that World Series winners are made in August and Septemberónot born in April. (A perfect example would be the shocking 2007 World Series between the Red Sox and the Rockies, who amounted to virtually nothing for the first four months of the season, but got hot at the right time and rode their way to a World Series.)


Hereís a preview of what to expect come mid-October, with in terms of the four playoff teams from each league and a World Series winner.


AL West: Texas Rangers. Historically, the Rangers have had good starts to the season in recent years, but have tapered off and missed the playoffs altogether. This year is special for the Rangers, who have finally added some much-needed pitching in the form of Cliff Lee. With their batters hitting as well as they have, they should hold off an aging Angels team to secure a win in the AL West. The line at www.sportsbook.com agrees, as the Texas Rangers are heavy favorites right now at -10000.


AL Central: Chicago White Sox. With the possible addition of Edwin Jackson, who threw a no-hitter earlier this year, the ChiSox would have the most well-rounded team in a weaker-than-usual AL Central. This isnít a team that is going to scare many people, but they will beat the Twins for a playoff spot.


AL East: New York Yankees. Defense wins championships, and the Yanks have the best starting pitching in the division and have been consistent all season long. They have enough weapons to beat out the Rays down the stretch, if they can manage a stretch without two of their best starters.


AL Wild Card: Tampa Bay Rays. Tampaís lineup is just more intimidating than the Red Soxís at this point, and theyíve proven they can win with this lineup, as seen in 2008.


NL West: San Francisco Giants. The Giants are playing like a World Series contender right now. Led by seemingly superhuman rookie Buster Posey and a downright filthy pitching staff, itís only a matter of time before they catch up to the Padres, who have slowed their pace since getting out to a huge early season lead.


NL Central: St. Louis Cardinals. This is going to be a closer race than many people expect, but the Redsí pitching staff just isnít up to the task of fighting off Pujols and his experienced crew. I expect the Cards to gain control and not let go next time these two teams match up. The line at www.sportsbook.com has the Cardinals as the favorite at -150 currently.


NL East: Philadelphia Phillies. The Phils are starting to hit, and that spells trouble for their division rivals, given the addition of Roy Oswalt to the city of brotherly love. Without question, this is the best rotation in baseball, and if Chase Utley is a shadow of his former self when he returns from injury, this is still the team to beat.


NL Wild Card: Atlanta Braves. This is a really well-balanced lineup with a good mix of experience and youth playing under manager Bobby Cox for his final season. A brutal wild card race is in store for a number of teams, but I see Atlanta coming out on top.


ALDS: Yankees top the White Sox in a sweep. Beyond Mark Buehrle, thereís nothing that the White Sox can throw out there that the Yankees canít handle. This should be an easy week for New York.


ALDS: Texas over Tampa in seven. I predict this will be the most interesting playoff series weíll see, so play close attention if and when it comes up. These are two dynamic teams with clear strengths all over the field. In the end, I give it to the team that has been the most aggressive in going out and getting a top-level starter for the playoff push.


NLDS: Philadelphia over St. Louis in six. The Cardinals have a lot of depth at the plate, but itís all about starting pitching and timely hitting in the playoffs, and that describes Philadelphia to a T.


NLDS: San Francisco over Atlanta in five. The young guns take on the old guard in this one, and I have a sneaking suspicion that this series will signal the beginning of a long run for the Giants as a top contender in the National League. Thereís just enough experience there to make me believe that their superior starters will be able to focus and pull through.


ALCS: New York bests the Rangers in five. You have to hand it to the ďevil empire,Ē they know what theyíre doing. The addition of Lance Berkman gives them depth that they havenít had in a whileóand they won the World Series last year.


NLCS: Philadelphia over San Francisco in six. Thereís nothing quite like the same championship twice in a row, and it hasnít happened in baseball since 1977-78. The experience that the Phillies have is just too much to overlook, especially with the addition of another World Series pitcher is Oswalt.


World Series. Philadelphia over New York in six. Put simply, the Phillies are the team getting hot and getting better at the right time of year. Despite their early season struggles, this team has proven that they are worth discussing as a true dynasty in a league that hasnít produced more than a handful in the past 50 years. If Iím placing a bet today, Philadelphia has my money to win their second championship in three seasons.




Texas trying to buck the system in New York
2009-08-26

There had been a great deal of speculation the Texas Rangers were perfectly positioned to steal a game from the New York Yankees in the opener on forums and chat sites catering to sports wagering talk on Tuesday. The belief was from underdog and value players, the Yankees would be flat after a big series win in Boston and Joba Chamberlain had not been very effective of late, making Texas a delicious choice at +185 on the money line. (Be sure to check the latest information on all the MLB games by visiting the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.)

New York looked anything but flat taking a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. This Texas team is a little different from the past, not wilting under the heat and humidity the Lone Star State brings this time of year and they kept battling, earning a 10-5 lead and almost gave it away, with New York scoring four runs in the bottom of the ninth, to come up just short at 10-9.

High scoring games are nothing new at the new Yankees Stadium, where the average score totals 10.3 runs per game. The Rangers will attempt to win the series tonight on ESPN2 at 7:05 Eastern and possibly further close the gap in the AL West with Los Angeles with another victory.

Texas will have New Yorkís full attention, as the Yankees lost for just the 19th time in 60 games (best in baseball) in the Bronx this season. The Rangers will be in virtually the same exact position as last night, being +185 underdogs according to Sportsbook.com.

Texas is feeling spry after defeating the Yanks and will send 22-year-old left-hander Derek Holland (7-7, 4.72 ERA) to the mound. The rookie will face an intimidating New York lineup that punishes left-hand pitchers, sporting a 28-14 record and heís been rocked for eight runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Bronx Bombers this season. Holland has found a groove in last three starts, with 3-0 record and 1.29 ERA; expect the Yankees to test him.

Andy Pettitte (10-6, 4.25) will take the ball for Joe Girardiís club, seeking a third straight win. Pettitte and his teammates will go after a fifth consecutive triumph when heís been the starter. Though the veteran left-hander did not have his best stuff last Friday against Boston in wild 20-11 win (seven runs allowed in five innings), prior to that he had 2.61 ERA in last five starts.

By all appearances Texas should have another shot as big underdog, until this sobering system is unveiled.

Play Against road underdogs with a money line of +175 to +250 after allowing nine runs or more against opponent after a combined score of 15 runs or more.

This system is a proven winner and consistent. Since 1997, the record is 184-48, 79.3 percent and over the last five years has been equally as steady with 64-17 (79 percent) mark. What makes this system work is teams involved in high scoring affairs and positioned as large underdogs typically donít respond well in next contest and this is acknowledged with teams like Texas losing by 2.5 runs per game.
Can Texas win tonight, sure, is it a good idea to place a wager on them, after reading to this point, you decide.
