We have an outstanding amount of baseball fans that are doing audio and video presentations for the game of baseball that are not even being paid for it.

I would put the content of these shows up against a lot of the paid professionals of the MLB – or any other entity that possesses the wherewithal to be able to do that.

If you want to keep scrolling down, all of the information listed below is all of the shows for the week from all, or maybe you have a favorite, then you can just click on one of the highlighted shows. 

In this opening week we had Sully Baseball talk a lot about the Pirates, D’Backs, Cubs and the Cardinals in opening week.  He keyed on where Tim Lincecum may end up, and the opening start for Zack Greinke.  Like everyone else, he also submitted his yearly predictions.

Sully also delivered an emotional podcast where he implores everyone to love their extended family more on April 2, 2016 – because you don’t know when you may lose some one.

Odds To Win The MLB Divisions In 2016: Best Value Bets

It seems about once every 3 years Ubaldo Jimenez puts together a Cy Young caliber type of year. If he can find all the stars aligned in the right direction he could throw like a suitable #1 pitcher in the league. The problem with the rotation is that Jimenez and Tillman are up and down - while Gausman and Bundy are unproven at the big league. At least the potential is there for one year.

It seems about once every 3 years Ubaldo Jimenez puts together a Cy Young caliber type of year. If he can find all the stars aligned in the right direction he could throw like a suitable #1 pitcher in the league. The problem with the rotation is that Jimenez and Tillman are up and down – while Gausman and Bundy are unproven at the big league. At least the potential is there for one year.  Decent Innings were thrown by both starters this week, and Bundy worked a nice frame out of the Bullpen last night.

So less than a week of play has occurred and we are seeing some early trends.  They jumped from +1300 to +900 in 3 games, and I still believe that is great value.

1st impressions are I am glad I bet a lot of money on the Baltimore Orioles for the Division and the American League Pennant overall.  Yes they swept a Twins club at home, and  have yet to play on the road, but the pitching looks decent.

Chris Tillman and Ubaldo Jimenez look decent in their limited work, and the offense has come up clutch.

If the O’s are able to get that Cy Young caliber type of chucker Jimenez seems to wharf into for half a year (for once every 3 seasons), than maybe Baltimore has a fighting chance to win the AL East in 2016.

Baltimore was 47 – 31, and played one of the weirdest home games ever in front of no fans after the Baltimore riots.  For those scoring at home too, the Rays hosted 3 games with the civil unrest, and that is why there were only 78 games played at Camden Yards in 2015.

The Orioles were 34 – 50 on the road.  If they are able to win some games away from home cooking, they will compete. Read the rest of this entry

How Do You Define A Sports Dynasty In Baseball History And Now?

Z REAL DYNASTIES

I’ve been wanting to write this piece for forever – I’ve started and I’ve stopped but this picture is an inspiration to finally write the story I need to write.

The “even year” San Francisco Giants are NOT a dynasty and the above picture illustrates that, but I have examples beyond that, that help prove my point.

DEFINITION OF A DYNASTY:

According to the dictionary this is the definition of a dynasty:

  • a succession of rulers who are members of the same family
  • the period during which a certain family reigns

That can be applied to sports teams …. I define a sports dynasty as follows:

Dynasties are teams that are DOMINANT over a significant period of time.

For further examples and information on sports dynasties and why they qualify as dynasties ….

FRIDAY UPDATE:   Negative on any knee injury, sprained ankle is  Initial Prognosis – is going for a full Leg MRI Today.

THURS NIGHT: Tonight is a rough night for Cubs fans. Young superstar, Kyle Schwarber, was carted off the of the field after a collision with fellow outfielder, Dexter Fowler, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Nobody knows the severeness of the injury, but typically nothing good can come from being carted off the field. Based on the collision, it looks like there could be an injury to Schwarber’s upper leg (femur area), but that is a guess coming from a baseball blogger and not a doctor.

Hopefully this injury isn’t serious because this could be a huge loss for the Chicago Cubs offense. To read the rest of the article for updates and to see the collision (no apparent graphic content), click the link below:
