Money Lines For MLB Games Played Wednesday Apr 5, 2017

It is simple.  ALL year we are betting $1 on all the underdogs for as many of the 2430 Games we can.

We are trying to validate a point that daily wagering is decent to follow this formula.

Each day we intend to update the results on this page.

On the mainpages of the site, where the blog posts go in timely order, we also are going to post the daily MLB Schedule and all Open Lines available at the time of publishing.

In addition to the DFS daily posts for FanDuel, DraftKings, and overall player selection posts daily, there will be that post of morning lines.

Once a week the Odds to win the World Series will be done on a post, and once every 2 weeks the Pennant Winner Odds, and Division Odds will be posted.

At the ALL – Star Break we will have a great breakdown blog of the HR Derby.  We have won money on this contest four years in a row.

We have you covered for wagering all year long.

Yearly Bankroll Start: $500 – To Date (Apr 5, 2017) – $496.07) = Loss of $3.93)

Justin Verlander pitched into the 7th and struck out 10 White Sox in 6 1/3 innings, allowing 2 runs and getting the 6-3 victory for the Tigers.

Gerardo Parra doubled and singled twice, driving in 3 and scoring a run as the Rockies held on to the 6-5 final in Milwaukee.

MLB Shutout Survivor 2017: Rays + Dodgers Share 5 – 0 Losses To Be Elminated

Not even Longoria;s career mastery over CC Sabathia could stop the Rays from being blanked on Tuesday night Tampa Bay was never a favorite to win this competition, but i didn’t think they would be stopped on this night while facing Sabathia.

MLB Shutout Survivor 2017:

Each year we run the list as it comes down in order.  From Opening Day until the last club is blanked, we see which squad can hold off getting zeroed  the longest.

Last year, the Pittsburgh Pirates lasted into June to win the honors. 

You always have to go with the favorites to win this category. This would be the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox considering their potent offenses and home venue for their ball games.

The Dodgers continued their trend not to fare well against LHP, despite the fact the have Lefty killer Franklin Gutierrez now, and bowed out of this competition one day after hanging 14 runs on the Padres.

Maybe there is a reason for optimism yet is San Diego.

The Rays couldn’t figure out CC Sabathia either, and I am surprised that Evan Longoria didn’t hit at least a wall ball versus the Yankees veteran  Maybe Sabathia will pitch good to start in 2017 too. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Matchups For 4/5/2017

Value/Sleeper Pitchers:

Ian Kennedy I think this will be a name that goes under the radar on a full slate of games. He gets to face a Twins team that really hasn’t improved that much from last year when they were horrible.

Kennedy has faced 91 Ray’s batters and given up only 22 hits which comes to a .242 BA. Kennedy isn’t a sexy name by any means but he has a 25.2 K% and only a 7.8 BB% while only giving up 5 HRs to go along with 26 strikeouts. He could be the sneaky yet effective tournament option.

John Lackey This is a more riskier play than others on the slate because of Lackey’s age and so many miles on his arm. He’s facing the Cub’s foe, his old team, the Cardinals. He’s seen them a lot to the tune of 139 ABs and in those he’s only given up 31 hits for a .223 BA. Lackey has struck out 35 batters with a 23 K% and only given up 2 HRs.

J.A. Happ This one might be a little surprising for you but people will probably be off of Happ since he’s going up against a semi-potent offense in the Orioles. Oddly enough, Happ has held them to 32 hits in 149 ABs (.215 BA) with a 29.2 K% and only a 6.2 BB%. He has 47 strikeouts while giving up 6 HRs and could be that middle-tier priced pitcher you need to take down a GPP.

“Every Day Chucker” Podcast Episode #3: Lets Just Have 8 Batters Per Lineup Hit

NO DH and No Pitcher hitting???  Am I crazy, or would this be a creative way to influx some offense into the game without other big changes done to the fabric of baseball?

Consider the injury yesterday to Junior Guerra, and what if it were Clayton Kershaw or Madison Bumgarner.  Or if a Pitcher got hurt like Chien-Ming Wang, or worse like Tony Conigliaro?

Don’t worry folks, this kind of alteration is unlikely to happen, but one has to wonder whether the league will adopt a unified set of rules for both the American and National League.

‘There Are Very Few Individuals as Fascinating as Lefty O’Doul’

odoul-batting-instructor_1_orig

Lefty O’Doul, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Joe DiMaggio

Lefty O’Doul had an extraordinary baseball career. Blessed with blazing speed and preternatural hitting ability, O’Doul nonetheless failed to stick in the majors until the age of 31. It was partially his own fault: Despite repeated entreaties by coaches, managers and teammates to focus his attention on hitting, O’Doul insisted he was a pitcher, not the man who would eventually retire with a .349 lifetime batting average (fourth-best of all-time). 

After his playing days came to a close, O’Doul was appointed “Manager for Life” of the legendary San Francisco Seals (a position he held for 17 years); established a reputation as the best (and most cerebral) hitting instructor in the game; and, through sheer force of will and personality, did more than any other person to promote baseball in Japan, where it remains a national obsession (and where O’Doul is still revered).

With Lefty O’Doul: Baseball’s Forgotten Ambassador, author Dennis Snelling has written the definitive biography of one of baseball’s greatest personalities. It’s a book worthy of its subject.The following interview with Snelling was conducted via email.
