Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast. is a direct response to a Twitter follower.

I gave Who Owned Baseball to Julio Teheran over Adam Wainwright. Not everyone agreed.

It was a tough call. But the main difference was the fact that Teheran pitched against a first place Milwaukee team and Wainwright pitched against a horrible Diamondbacks squad.

Chris Davis, Hisashi Iwakuma, Dernard Span, Julio Teheran, Garrett Jones, Jonny Gomes and NOT Adam Wainwright all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball

Chris Davis clobbered 3 homers, collected another hit, scored 4 runs and drove in 5, leading the Orioles to a 9-2 blowout in Pittsburgh.

Denard Span went 5 for 5 with a pair of doubles, two runs batted in and a stolen base as the Nationals beat the Reds, 9-4.

Hisashi Iwakuma gave the Mariners 8 strong innings with 6 hits and 2 earned runs, earning the 6-2 victory in Texas.

In a night of multiple complete game shutouts,Julio Teheran gets the nod, holding the first place Brewers scoreless and giving the Braves a memorable 5-0 six hit triumph.

They owned baseball on May.20, 2014.

Why Julio Teheran and NOT Adam Wainwright? Listen to today’s The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Odds To Win The 2014 MLB World Series – Updated For Week 8 + Best Value Bets

If Chris Davis is at his HR centric best, all of a sudden this team is lethal from Nelson Cruz, to Adam Jones, and hence should I say a healthy Matt Wieters crushing from the DH slot, or potentially this team could ink a Morales, or trade for another guy.  Pitching Staff is holding up, and now it is time for this team to roll.  Having New York, Toronto and Boston so heavily favored over them for this category is a farce.  Take the +3500 value.

I had my worst week for prognosticating the best odds, however I made up for it, with the worst odds of the week.  In all, I was 4 – 4 – 2 for the week.  I still have not had a losing record, and many winning ones.

The Rays and Royals have plummeted in their odds for the World Series.  I am not sure about either one of them getting back into the race, although that Tampa +5000 this week is very tempting.

The Kansas City offense is a joke.  They should sign Kendrys Morales after June, and then turn around and trade Billy Butler.  Morales won’t make much more than “Country Breakfast” and is a more consistent hitter all around.

You could also acquire some more depth somewhere else for Butler’s services.  Heck, Seattle needs a DH right now, and they aren’t even calling Morales for all we know, and are going with Nick Franklin until Corey Hart is back. Read the rest of this entry

Edwin Encarnacion had a Multi HR Game for the 3rd time since May 8th last night.  This guy is sickly hot at the plate right now.

Heading into April with just 1 big fly, he now has 9 HRs in the month of May, and is a centrifugal force behind the recent hot play by the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Canadian franchise’s 1B now is tied with 4 other guys for 4th place (including teammate Jose Bautista)  in the AL – with 11 HRs.

It was also the 2nd HR streak for EE, as he hit a HR in three straight games from May 6th to May 8th. Read the rest of this entry
