Tigers Fleeced In Trade Of J.D. Martinez

J.d. martinez haul.jpg

In case you were under a rock yesterday, or at least not on social media, the Tigers finally moved J.D. Martinez in a four player trade to the Arizona Diamondbacks.  With Martinez’s free-agency around the corner and a forecasting of a annual salary approaching or exceeding $20MM a year to sign him, the writing was on the wall if the Tigers found themselves out of the race, which of course they are.  The Tigers received SS/3B Dawel Lugo, SS/2B Sergio Alcantara, and SS/2B Jose King.  Dawel was rated by MLB Pipeline as the 4th best prospect in the organization, with Alcantara 15th, and King outside of the top 30.

The Diamondbacks get what some are referring to as the top bat available at the deadline in J.D., who was hitting .305 with 16 homers after missing the first six weeks of the season and just coming off AL Player of the Week honors.  Before this season, J.D. had been averaging 28 homers a year and a .299 average with an OPS of .898.  Again though, with the Tigers current payroll issues, and now in a rebuilding mode, it was time for J.D. to go.

Milwaukee Brewers History: July 9-18, 1982

This weekend the Milwaukee Brewers honored the 1982 World Series team with special promotions and ceremonies.  I’ve done my fair share of reminiscing of that team over the weekend, and it got me thinking…what exactly were the Brewers up to on these dates in 1982?

I vaguely remembered some of the details from the research for my Brewers book, but started revisiting that specific era (July 14-16, 1982) again to put myself back in the right frame of mind for this blog post.  So here are the details…

Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Cody Bellinger, July 15, 2017 )

CODY

The Marlins still don’t have a cycle… but their fans witnessed one today!

Cody Bellinger can do it all and look here! Evidently doing it all includes tripling past Giancarlo Stanton and completing the cycle.

The Dodgers are red hot. Hell, they may not lose another game this year. And with Bellinger swinging his bat then the Dodgers could have back to back Rookies of the Year.

The Curious Case of Clyde Wright

Clyde “Skeeter” Wright had his name etched in the Milwaukee Brewers record books in 1974, although not for what anyone would have expected after he was acquired.  Wright became the only Brewers pitcher to lose 20 games in a single season after he posted a 9-20 record.

It has often been argued that to achieve a 20-game loss season in baseball means those specific starters were actually very good. The list of pitchers on the all-time list include 20-game winners and members of the Hall of Fame.  Some won and lost 20 games in the same season – the most recent being Phil Niekro of the Atlanta Braves with a 21-20 record in 1979.

MLB Reports Is Picking A Aaron Judge/Giancarlo Stanton HR Derby Final

Jeff Roberson AP Photo




Yeah, quite a prognostication I know, but we have picked perfectly in HR Derby*s the last three years we have put out predictions.

For the record here are the Odds For The EVENT (Courtesy of betdsi.com)

  1. Aaron Judge +150
  2. Giancarlo Stanton +180
  3. Cody Bellinger +400
  4. Miguel Sano +1300
  5. Justin Bour +1500
  6. Mike Moustakas +1700
  7. Gary Sanchez +1900
  8. Charlie Blackmon +2200

The big boys are just in a class of power of their own in Judge and Stanton…

We will put down $180 on Judge (pays $450) and $165 on Stanton (pays $462).  If either one wins that will be at least $105 profit on the board with $345 in bets.

If it were a different venue than Marlins Park, perhaps we would give some of the other guys a shot, but this park is spacious.

Whatever happens tonight can there please be irreversible damage to the HR monstrous celebration organism that pops up after Marlins jacks!!

Kal Daniels 1987 Topps – Sully Baseball Card of the Day for July 8, 2017

Sully Baseball

IMG_0838Kal Daniels was a player whose career began with a bang and faded out before his 30th birthday.

He is exactly the kind of player that would have taken PEDs in the 1990s but sure didn’t look like he did in the 1980’s. He also intersected with Pete Rose, Marge Schott and Darry Strawberry in memorable ways.

Kalovski Daniels was drafted by the Reds as the 7th pick overall in the 1982 draft out of Middle Georgia College. By the time he arrived in Cincinnati for the 1986 season, he was a talented left handed hitting outfielder in a crowded outfield. Eddie Milner, Dave Parker and Eric Davis were all established. But Daniels’ .320 average and .917 OPS in 207 plate appearances got manager Pete Rose’s attention.

In 1987, Milner went to San Francisco and Daniels got his playing time. He batted .334, homered 26 times, stole 26 bases and…
