Odds To Win The American And National League In 2016 MLB Action

Spring time is coming fast and frequent and now we are seeing daily odds placed on the League Champions for the 2016 MLB Season.  In most cases I hate picking these odds since the World Series odds tend to be more valued for the punters.

But sometimes it is still easier to prognosticate an AL Or NL winner instead of winning the whole thing.  14 clubs in the Junior Circuit are in play in my view, as are 9 potential Senior Circuit squads.

If you are here to wager on the A’s, Reds, Brewers, Braves, Phillies, Padres or Rockies for the upcoming season you are certainly delusional about baseball betting.  However if you are only wishing to bet a few dollars, than who really cares. Read the rest of this entry

I am still working on my new statistic to value pitchers in dynasty leagues, so in the meantime, I will post my personal rankings.

The following rankings are for dynasty leagues.

Dynasty leagues keep the same roster every year following the initial draft.

These leagues place significantly more value on younger players, which is why my rankings may look different from a lot of other fantasy baseball rankings online.

Bob Feller has got to be the one Cleveland Indians player who I most wish I could have seen live. But alas, I was born in the wrong time.

I can’t even say I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him. but I have read a multitude of stories about our beloved Rapid Robert, and I know what an icon the man is, not only to the Indians franchise, but also to baseball as a whole.

therefore I, 216clevelandgirl, am going to plead with you–yes you, the person reading this right now–and ask you to please sign a petition that the Cleveland Indians started to award Bob Feller the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Feller willingly put his baseball career on hold after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and became the first professional baseball player to join the U.S. Navy during World War II.

His bravery and courage earned him the rank of Chief Petty Officer. After Feller returned, he refused to be recognized as a hero, stating, “I’m no hero. heroes don’t come back.”

With spring training around the corner, we’re taking a look at a couple of young players for each team that I think will have a larger impact in 2016. 

We started with the American League East yesterday and will move through division by division.  Today we look at AL Central…

Chicago White Sox

Carlos Rodon, LHP – The 23-year old first round (3rd pick) draft pick, had created a ton of buzz coming into last season. 

Rodon ultimately started out in Triple-A Charlotte before being called up to make his Major League debut on April 21st

Although shaky at times with control issues, Rodon really put it together at the end of the season in his last 9 starts; he was 5-2 with a 2.28 ERA, .209 average against with a 8.7 k per 9 rate. 

In total, Rodon was 9-6, with a 3.75 ERA, 1.443 WHIP in 139.1 innings, but it’s that last 9 starts that showed what he could really do.
