Updated Odds To Win The 2014 MLB World Series As Of Right Now: A – Rod Suspension Could Affect These

People so egotistical as Rodriguez can't be humble enough to realize that playing MLB Baseball is a privilege not a right.  He has sullied the game, alienating teammates, and now has sent his lawyers on a stupid campaign versus the MLB and the Yankees.  It was time to make an example out of him.  They did just that when the Arbitrator reduced his suspension from 211 games to 162 games.  While it wasn't the full amount of games, it was 97 more than Ryan Braun's previous record of a 65 game ban.  The Yankees will save $22 - $23 MIL on the ordeal, and will either sign Tanaka or stay under the $189 MIL mark to reset their penalty for the 2015 season.  Patrick Smith - Getty Images

With a pretty slow week for movements in the MLB, I think the Yankees had the best news with the Alex Rodriguez suspension for the whole year on Saturday.

The worst news of the week happened for the Texas Rangers, who will be without Starting Derek Holland for half of the 2014 MLB campaign because of his freak accident.

Also, the Dodgers and Yankees are still said to be the leaders on the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes.

Among other news, Carlos Gonzalez also had emergency appendectomy surgery Friday Night. 

While I have recently said Colorado is decent value at their World Series odd (+5500 as a good value pick), I would hold off until the team plays in Spring Training to see how he responds.

Alex Rodriguez Suspension Announced

Carlos Gonzalez is latest in the long list of players to take advantage of the thin air in Denver.  CARGO has destroyed the cover off of the ball at a 3 Slash Line of .339/.403/1.033 - with 79 HRs and 253 RBI in just 1168 (or the equivalency of playing 2 full seasons at Coors Field.  His road 3 Slash is .269/.324/.774 - with 48 HRs and 148 RBI in 1248 AB.  To be fair, 2013 he has evolved to hit everywhere finally, sporting a .987 OPS on the Road - to a .930 mark at home.

To be fair, in 2013, he evolved to hit everywhere finally, sporting a .987 OPS on the Road – to a .930 mark at home.  Gonzalez’s appendectomy surgery on Friday, was the latest injury that has plagued the Rox superstar since late last summer.

I mean it would be a lotto pick at +5500 anyway, but it is still wasting money.  Too many times in the last few years it has been CARGO or Troy Tulowitzki on the shelf at any given time.

The Rockies are a decent team when these 2 are on the same field, and they have had a decent off-year by picking up Brett Anderson, Boone Logan, LaTroy Hawkins, Jordan Lyles, Brandon Barnes, Justin Morneau and Drew Stubbs – while only surrendering Drew Pomeranz, Todd Helton (retirement), Josh Outman and Dexter Fowler.

The Dodgers have said to be going hard after Masahiro Tanaka.  While I hate them being the favorite to win the World Series, it would be tough to argue against their pitching staff, featuring Kershaw, Greinke, Ryu, Haren and Tanaka.

Something the Cuban players has mentioned he may do anyway.  The LA Dodgers won the NL West in 2013 by 11 games over the Arizona Diamondbacks, then they beat out Atlanta in the NLDS – before succumbing to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
