What should the Phillies do by the trade deadline?

How about trade everything that isn’t nailed to the ground?

The races are so tight right now that a bunch of teams may try to shoot the moon. No better time to take advantage of them!

It is an all anarchy episode on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Odrisamer Despaigne, Jon Lester, Neil Walker, Jacoby Ellsbury, Tim Lincecum, Peter Bourjos and Yan Gomes all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

Odds To Win The 2014 World Series Currently + Best/Worst Value Bets

The Orioles are in a brutal part of their schedule in which they are on a 10 game roadtrip to the west.  They dropped 2 out of 3 to the A's over the weekend, and now play 4 @LAA and 3 @ SEA before returning home to play the Angels again next week.  All of their Division teams won their weekend series, including the Yankees Red Sox and Rays sweeping - and the Blue Jays taking 2 out of three versus Texas.

With our Monthly Rankings article coming on Thursday, I thought I would do this weekly article right now, even though 3 games have only transpired since the ALL – Star Break.

There has been some movement for sure.  I had a paltry week of predicting at 2 – 5 – 3, but am still prognosticating decently for the year.

Late last week, I bet the Rays, Indians and Red Sox for the World Series at $5 bets.  TB pays out at 100/1, Cleveland 80/1 and Boston 65/1.

I also will win a lot of money in the AL East, unless the Blue Jays or Yankees take down the division.  That is another article for another time. Read the rest of this entry

Braves Are The 29th Team To Finish 2014 MLB Runs Survivor: Yankees Dead Last – But Had A Good Weekend

The Braves offense has been sporadic all season long.  Atlanta gets back at the Bronx Bombers by reaching 8 runs in a game 1st, and made New York finish 30th in this contest The Braves have played 98 Games, while New York has played 97, but even if the Yanks score 8 runs in their next game, then they would lose a won games tie-breaker.

The Atlanta Braves scored 8 runs last night, and in doing so, ensured themselves of not finishing last for the 2014 MLB Runs Scoring Survivor.

The “Tomahawk Choppers” also kept pace with the Naitonals in the process.

Fredi Gonzalez’s squad finished the trek in 98 games, and while the Yankees could potentially tie them in their next contest (98th game), the Braves have more wins than the Yankees, and that would be the tiebreaker.

We will still inform you when the “Bronx Bombers” complete their mission finally.

Never did I think the “Pinstripers” (who lead the Majors in offensive lineup player salary at $117.8 MIL) would be the last team for the 11 scenarios. Read the rest of this entry
