2014 Final American League Attendances Show A Slight Decline

Robinson Cano's arrival helped stopped the plummeting turnstiles revenue at Safeco Field this year, as the club topped 2 Million fans for the 1st time since 2010, and saw the greatest percentage jump in park draw from 2013 to 2014.  With a young nucleus surrounding Cano, the club should contend for the next several years, and maybe Seattle will crack the top half of attendance in the AL once again.

Baseball is in trouble, that is what everyone will say in the newspapers, however the attendances in the game are doing well compared to year to year totals.

Over 34.45 Million Fans viewed games in the ‘Junior Circuit’ during the 2014 campaign.  While this total is down from 34.6 MIL fans in 2013, it only represents a drop of 0.5% or 150,000 people.

Cleveland fell back into the cellar of attendance at Progressive Field, barely drawing 1.43 Million butts in the seats.  It was an 8.6% drop for the 2013 season, where they drew 1.57 Million fans amidst a playoff race.

The biggest percentage in lost attendance goes to the Rangers, who struggled though an injury filled year, to bring in 14.4% less people than in 2013.

Seattle paid $240 MIL for Robinson Cano last winter, and were rewarded at the turnstiles, with the biggest jump at 13.8% more people going through the wickets at Safeco Field.  It was the 1st time they drew more than 2 MIllion since 2010. Read the rest of this entry

4 MLB Post Season Games Slated For Friday, All 3 Hours Apart – Call In Sick!

The 1st game of tomorrow's play will be held at beautiful Camden Yards..

I am also an NFL fan, and while I love baseball more than life itself, these type of days are rare indeed, where the sport will carry four separate times, in order for all 4 games to be seen.

Now, good luck on all games to be under 3 hours, but it is possible with some of the ace pitchers throwing.

Here is the lineup..

All times EST

Detroit @ Baltimore 12:07 PM (Camden Yards) Justin Verlander vs TBD

San Fran @ Washington 3:07 PM (Nationals Park) Jake Peavy vs Stephen Strasburg

St. Louis @ LA Dodgers 6:37 PM (Dodger Stadium) Adam Wainwright vs Clayton Kershaw

Kansas City @ LA Angles 9:37 (Angel Stadium) Yordano Ventura.  vs Matt Shoemaker

Now I for one, am thinking that the LA traffic will be gridlock with over 100, 000 people clogging up the freeways in Los Angeles on a October Friday night. Read the rest of this entry

Royals Vs Angels Preview 2014 ALDS

The Angels are finally back in the postseason after a couple of years absence.  They have the best 1 - 9 lineup in the AL, an extremely deep and revamped Bullpen, and starters like Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson have lots of playoff experience.  Add a roster full of World Series heroes of not so long ago, and it could be a recipe for a long postseason run.  They also have the luck of the draw with playing the Royals in the 1st Round, with only having to face James Shields once, while their top duo of Jered Weaver and Matt Shoemaker are slated to tow the hill in 4 of the 5 games.

No time to rest for the tired and weary.  After an emotional, and jaw dropping game for the Royals on Tuesday night, they will fly to Anaheim to meet the top seeded  Los Angeles Angels in the LDS Round.

You have to realize that Mike Scioscia is running the gauntlet on the running prowess of Kansas City even as we speak,

There will be no 2 – 3 or extra jackrabbit’s for the Royals squad, who were definitely aided by a lax Roster enforcement for Wild Card play, and also by the early game injury to Geovany Soto.

Chris Iannetta and Hank Conger will have to be ready for the speed demon club, that features several guys who can swipe bags on a whim.

If there is one thing going for Kansas City right now it is rhythm of repetition having played on Tuesday, while the Halo’s have been licking their chops in Orange County all week at the beach.

The Angels clinched so early, it would have been about 15 days since they have played a meaningful game in Game #1. Read the rest of this entry

MLB Baseball Is A Great Value Live At The Park

Safeco Field is among the very top valued parks in the MLB.  A pair of tickets can be had for $35 - $40 at the most, and there are an unbelievable amount of free parking spots within a mile of the venue.  The pricing for the Post Season is decent as well.  $40 for face valued tickets (LF Bleachers) during the LDS round.  That goes to $80 during the ALCS - and only $120 per ticket for the World Series.  I can't even buy a 'Standing Room Only' Ticket for my local NHL Hockey team. to see the worst team in the league.

Stop me if you heard this before…Baseball is dying..  Come on folks, the actual facts don’t suggest that at all.  Sure if you are going back to the day when there were 3 networks on TV, and that is it.

I am going to let you in on a little secret here.  Back in 2004, I was once a NHL hockey fan.  Yeah, let the stereotype stand for living north of the border, but yeah I followed the sport religiously, even more than baseball for a period.

At that point in my life, I had been to about a hundred games live in Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, and had been to exactly 3 MLB games (1 at Skydome in 1989, and 2 at Olympic Stadium) in the mid 90’s.

Once I went to Safeco Field once in 2005, I was hooked and had the vibe to see all other 29 parks in rapid fashion.

My love for viewing baseball parks escalated from there into 4 world record chases – to become the fastest to see a full game live at all 30 MLB Stadiums.

A lot of my friends and family are often baffled why i don’t just watch hockey, and support the local hockey team.  My interest dwindles every year, and especially now that I am more rabid about baseball than ever, doing this website daily. Read the rest of this entry

Interleague Master Schedule For The 2015 MLB Season

mlb_mini_pennants_21582big

 

The National League will be looking to shake an 11 year game losing streak to the American League in 2015. 

Among the new things that AL vs NL has to offer, is a return to all teams in action at some point in the season during the time. 

Of course the Astros were back in the Senior Circuit then, so there was 16 teams vs just 14 for the Junior Circuit.

Mark it on your calendars – from Monday June 15 – June 18 all 30 teams will take part in a 2 game home and away series versus the same club.  This is sure to be a treat for Interleague fans.

Citizens Bank Ball Park, PNC Park and Fenway Park are the only 3 stadiums to have their venues host AL vs NL as their home openers. 

The MLB Reports will try to update the game times as they come in until the start of next campaign. 

Scroll Down or Click The READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY to see the 300 games listed for Interleague next year.  That is 20 games per club (10 home and 10 away.)

All 2015 Home Opener Dates For All 30 MLB Ball Parks

The view of the Roberto Clemente Bridge is worth the price of admission alone at PNC Park.  The 2013 fans saw the Bucs make the playoffs for the 1st time in 21 years.  There were almost 2.3 Million people that went through the turnstiles.  In 2014, they may even exceed that. Most ballpark fans have this iconic venue in their top list of stadiums in the MLB.

It is still unclear of whether the MLB season will start on International waters.

Of course we also don’t know who the 1st game on North American soil is for Sunday Apr.5, 2015, so there is 1 team that will change the home opener at least.

Within 9 days of the opener, all parks will be accounted for in the year.  Game Start times will come in sporadically in the offseason with variance on when the clubs all post them.

Generally there is a massive spike on game 1 of any year at a ball park, so a big tip is to wait for game #2.  A lot of the squads love to offer great value priced tickets as a way to stop the catastrophic plummet from the opener. 

Whatever the case, if you know ways to acquire your way in to one of these parks for the inaugural game of the season, it is always a memorable experience! Read the rest of this entry

August MLB Interleague Results: AL Also 6 Wins Away From 11th Straight Year Clinch

 

Interleague_Logo

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer): 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter

The National League is on the verge of falling to the American League for the 11th straight season.  Heading into play Saturday, with the only contest being Orioles @ Cubs, the AL holds a 145 – 123 advantage on the NL for the 2014 calendar year.

This is a decade plus of ownership of the Junior Circuit over the Senior Circuit. 

The National League actually has not fared too badly in August so far, winning 28 out of 60 games.

For those people who don’t like Interleague all, there are no more days on the schedule this year with multiple games.  In a lot of cases, they are not even games on the getaway days of Monday’s Thursday’s (which are the only 2 days to not have the 30 teams in action.)

Interleague has been a good thing for the game of baseball…. I would argue that the premise of playing teams that you don’t normally is good for the growth of baseball. Read the rest of this entry

How All Of The Angels Pitchers Were Acquired: 2014 Roster Tree Shows A Nice Year Revamp!

How All Of The Angels Pitchers Were Acquired:

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner):

Follow MLB Reports On Twitter

The Angels management had to look back on the 2013 Relief Core – and worry about their long term future.  This was because not one guy had a decent year, and most guys were well north of 4 ERA’s.

Jerry DiPoto has rapid fired a bunch of trades and signings since then, to solidify a great Bullpen it was once a late inning disaster waiting to happen on a nightly basis.

So how did he accomplish this?  What assets did he give out in order to make it happen?

The 1st domino to fall was signing Joe Smith to a 3 year deal as the team’s primary set up man for Ernesto Frieri.

After that it was the David Freese deal – in which Reliever Fernando Salas came with him from the NL champion St. Louis Cardinals for Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos. Read the rest of this entry

I tried to watch the Mariners vs Rangers a few months ago on  MLBTV.

5 Instant Replay reviews, many pitching changes, and the game lasted 3 hours and 30 minutes – and this was a 4 – 3 9 inning game.

It is not hard to figure out why games are longer in length.

Money Ball has forced every team to wear down pitchers, see as many tosses from the Starting Chuckers as humanly possible.

30 years ago, it was more of a rip it and grip it approach.

Strikeouts and Walks are at an all time high, but also are some pre-pitch rituals. Read the rest of this entry

Beane Spins Magic Again In World Series Quest: Picks Up Samardzija + Hammel For Straily + Prospects

Billy Beane - and the Athletics have seen their team post the best record in the MLB during the regular season for the last 2 years (190 Wins). The franchise has completed the most incredible amount of wins per dollar spent. Enough so, that they should really come out with the movie MoneyBall 2. Beane has been awesome in acquiring his Bullpen for 2014 - without surrendering any assets from the MLB club currently (with Dan Straily having been in AAA). the A's GM has made his move to anchor the Starting Rotation for a playoff run, by adding Samardija and Hammel. Addison Russell (20) was a high prospect, as was Billy Mckinney (19) as the 1st RD Draft Pick of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.  With the team's core becoming increasingly more expensive going forwards, the window to win is right now.  The trade also helps deepen the starting staff, who have suffered season ending injuries to Griffin and Parker (Tj Surgeries).

Without surrendering any assets from the MLB club currently (with Dan Straily having been in AAA). the A’s GM has made his move to anchor the Starting Rotation for a playoff run, by adding Samardija and Hammel.  Going the other way are: Addison Russell (20) was a high prospect, as was Billy Mckinney (19) as the 1st RD Draft Pick of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, Dan Straily and cash compensation, or a PTBNL. With the team’s core becoming increasingly more expensive going forwards, the window to win is right now. The trade also helps deepen the starting staff, who have suffered season ending injuries to Griffin and Parker (TJ Surgeries).

Billy Beane knows his current squad’s best chance to win the World Series now.

He has upped the ante, by acquiring  Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs for highly rated SS Addison Russell, SP Dan Straily, and young prospect OF Billy McKinney, with a player to be named later or cash finalizing the deal at a later date.

I like this move…rather I love this move.

The A’s GM saw what happened to his club the last few weeks when matched against the pitching of the Tigers, and knew he had to bolster his team for the stretch – to replace A.J. Griffin and Jarrod Parker, who both went down to Tommy John Surgeries this campaign. Read the rest of this entry

Current Odds To Win The 2014 MLB World Series + Best Value Bets

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer): 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter

An absolutely abysmal week for predicting which teams would jump on the leaderboard for odds.

Even though I did go 4 – 6 in the weeks prognostications, I pegged the massive loss for the Rockies.

This team plummeted from a +4000 to a +10000 odd to win the Fall Classic.  I had the Indians (who skyrocketed from +8000 – +5500 by virtue of a 6 game win streak.)

The Reds also have  a +5500 odd, as oppose to +6600.

The Jays are all the way up to tied for 5th on the favorite board, going from +1600 to +850.

Baltimore, Boston and New York all took drops in odds this week that were fairly minor. Read the rest of this entry

Record Corrections May Be Coming With Home + Road Splits: Then Again, Maybe Not

Coors Field is still a hitting haven.  While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB'ers to bat.  Some of the organizational players will not hit as good on the road, with playing in the NL West, in cavernous parks like Dodger Stadium, Petco Park and AT & T Park, however the weight will only affect their overall numbers away from the thin air.  Historic players like Larry Walker and Todd Helton displayed good road numbers, despite their gawdy home statistics, however they will never be looked in the same eye.

If you look at the current home and road records in the MLB Standings, you will see some weird differentials.

Take for instance the Rockies have only logged 23 games at Coors Field, where they are a staunch 16 – 7, meanwhile they have traveled abroad for 33 contests so far, putting forth a clip of 12 – 21.

This is a 10 game difference that could see the ‘Rox’ post a 7 – 3 win-loss record when the games are made up. Read the rest of this entry

In early 2012 I had this plan to venture out on a full season voyage of watching a game in all 30 MLB Parks.

What I ended up doing was breaking my own record for being present for every pitch in all games during a 30 MLB Parks odyssey in just 23 Calendar Days  during April of 2012.

I had taken 7 full weeks (3 weeks after, and 1 week before) off of work to not only do this, but to rest up after a bad vehicular accident in 2010, in which a douchebag hit my car going 60 MPH while I was waiting to turn left into a shopping mall from – not moving at all.

From late 2010 until late 2011, I embarked on a brutal path to gain my senses recovering from a concussion.

It was the 8th one of these I had come across, but the 1st in nearly 15 years. Read the rest of this entry

Doubleheaders Master Schedule For the 2014 MLB Season

ballpark chasing

Do yourself a favor and read this blog on the 30 MLB Park Pass-Port here

Gone are the days when baseball teams deliberately schedule two games in one stadium like teams used to do in past generations.  

If there is not a postponed game for the duration of your team’s schedule, you will not even have this occurrence.   I am here to tell that modern-day traveling has opened up possibilities for two games in one day for separate cities like never before.

For the extreme ballpark chasers, nothing is more exciting for a baseball fan when Major League Baseball posts the new season’s calendar.  Usually the brass does this in mid-September.  

On this post, I have gone through the MLB schedule with a fine-tooth comb, and have listed all Doubleheader Attempts that could be attended in 2014.

I will keep a keen eye on this stuff all season, and add more doubleheaders as they come available.

If you ever have a question, just tweet us or send an email to mlbreports@gmail.com

Happy Ballpark Chasing in 2014

There are 2 games in Sydney Australia for people to watch over in North America. 

Because the games are being played on Sat Night and Sunday afternoon there, you can actually watched 2 games in one day here.

If this weren’t weird enough, the Dodgers then fly across the world – to arrive in San Diego for the MLB opener on North America Soil on Sunday March.30/2014.

So if Los Angeles can go 2 – 1 – or 3 – 0 to begin the year, they may just hold onto the NL West for the rest of the campaign.

These 3 games are listed – and then it is the rest of the 26 weeks listed individually in perfect 7 game sequencing.  Read the rest of this entry
