MLB Power Rankings: Apr 9, 2017: Week 2

There are several teams that you may ask why their rankings are still somewhat high despite poor records, in relation to the Blue Jays, Yankees, Mariners, Giants, or even the Royals for that matter. It is simple….They have not hosted a game at home yet, still have decent players, and all of them did still drop down the power rankings over the last week – and definitely from their year end win totals. 

Thru Apr 9, 2017 (Prior to ESPN Sunday Night Game)

Win Predictions

American League (1235 – 1195)

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

“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.

A Fun Way For Fans To Track Runs Scoring For Teams This Season: MLB Runs Scoring Survivor 2017

For years we ran this entire category until all clubs had finished the task, this year we are encouraging readers to copy and paste this chart below and follow for themselves.

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.  If you score exactly 10 it still works for 10 (or 10+)

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations. 

As the runs come in on a daily basis, we will keep erasing the numbers beside the team until the last team wins.

When a club finishes the 11 different totals, please chart how many Games Played the team has at the time.  If another team ties them for Games Played, the highest run total in the Final runs total erased will act as the tiebreaker Read the rest of this entry

MLB Power Rankings 2017: Week 1 – Apr

Disclaimer:  We based these rankings on best strength to win the World Series.  Therefore some teams that have an easier division to play in, with the least path of resistance to the postseason overall may be ranked a lot higher than a club who is equally talented, yet may play in a juggernaut of a division.

Chicago Cubs (1):  The Cubs are the defending champions, and with the amount of talent they were able to bring back, plus add Kyle Schwarber for a full year, this spells they will sleepwalk to their Division again this season

At the MLB Reports we stated that we believe that another club may even win more games than Chicago, but this may be a product of Joe Maddon resting guys ultimately throughout the campaign.

Season duplicating from Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey will be harder to reel in.  The loss of Dexter Fowler is not replaced by Jon Jay.

If the Cardinals or the Pirates are able to push the Cubs, then the 100 win plateau may still be valid.  Chicago wins the NL Central by 10 games in our view. Read the rest of this entry

Chuck Booth Hosts A New Podcast Called “Every Day Chucker”: Well For At Least The Next 8 Days

Chuck Booth hosts his 1st ever solo ‘Podcast’ called the “Every Day” Chucker Podcast.  He salutes Sully Baseball’s Podcast, as Sully ends his 1622 Days straight with a podcast show (usually 20 minutes).

(Related: Link to  The Sully Baseball Podcast.)

Chuck wonders how many days he will do in a row (around 20 minutes), but vows to do at least 8!  Then it is time for season predictions and who will finish where and who will win the 2017 MLB World Series.

Show correction.  Chuck meant to say Miami Marlins personal loss of Jose Ferandez, and not Atlanta Braves tragedy.

Note:  Chuck will only be using SoundCloud for the podcasts.  This is not his real function as a Website Owner, but this is just to fill a gap for a while after Sully stops posting every day.

It may end up like “Speed 2” the movie – after the first film was so good, but oh well. “This Podcast Is Ten Seconds From A Toe-Tag!

WBC 2017: Israel Not The Ugly Duckling After All

The Dutch Baseball Hangout

wbc

Most, if not all predictions (including the one made by this blog) about the final standings in group A can be scratched.  Didn’t everybody pick Israel to finish last?
After a stunning win vs Korea yesterday, team Israel completed the upset by routing Taiwan 15-7 today

Today’s game was exactly the opposite compared to yesterday’s game in which both teams had a hard time scoring runs. Today Israel slugged its way to the victory.

With a solid AA/AAA pitcher on the mound for Israel, the team jumped on the Taiwanese pitching and outhit Taiwan 20-12 with four extra basehits.
Taiwan started the game with Chun-Lin Kuo on the mound. He played for the Seibu Lions of the NPB in the past two seasons. Those two seasons weren’t quite a success with ERAs of 5.31 (2015) and 8.46 (2016) and WHIPs of 1.682 and 1.701.
It showed as Israel jumped on Chun-Lin…

WBC 2017: Dutch Beat Taiwan In Nerve Wrecking Game

The Dutch Baseball Hangout

wbcThe Kingdom of the Netherlands “hosted” Taiwan in their second game of the tournament. In an exciting game in which the score went back and forth, the Dutch came back from trailing 5-4 and eventually walked off as a winner with a 6-5 win, due to a bases loaded walk. 

In a must win game for Taiwan, Jair Jurrjens took the mound for team Kingdom of the Netherlands. Manager Hensley Meulens took this decision because of the experience that Jurrjens has in the Taiwanese professional league, the CPBL. Jurrjens pitched almost one season for the Uni President 7-Eleven Lions and had some mixed results. Eventually, he was released due to a nagging injury.

The decision to send Jurrjens out to the mound was a bit unlucky perhaps. In the first two innings Jurrjens worked his way through the inning without any damage. But in the third inning he started to struggle…

Randy Levine proves to be classless

Randy Levine Makes All The Wrong Movements Post Betances Arbitration Hearing

The Dutch Baseball Hangout

As you may know, the Yankees and their setup man Dellin Betances were involved in a harsh dispute about the 2017 salary of Betances. Betances was asking $5 million, while the Yankees did not want to spend more than $3 million. During the past weeks, both parties did not get closer to each other. So an arbitration hearing was needed.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor Dellin BetancesDellin Betances (photo by Alchetron.com)


The outcome of the arbitration hearing was that the Yankees don’t have to pay Betances $5 million but only the $3 million they wanted. Nothing wrong with that. It is a part of the business. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Setup men, even though they are elite, are simply rewarded less than star closers. And while Betances was lights out as a setup man, he struggled as a closer after the Yankees got rid of Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller.

But there is something that…

Odds To Win The 2017 MLB Home Run Crown

Manny Machado joins his teammates back in the lineup at home on Friday, where they mash everyone at Camden Yards, and in particular have great power numbers against LHP Matt Moore of the Tampa Bay Rays.. A great stacking option, and the O's are part of 4 So for four years in a row a Baltimore Orioles players has led the overall MLB in Homers. This year could be the 5th straight year if Chris Davis, Mark Trumbo or Manny Machado lead the league in homers. These 3 O's player cracked a combined 122 big flies in 2016. Trumbo clubbed 47 to lead all of the Majors. I had boldly said last year that Baltimore may challenge the ALL - time HR Record of 264 in a season held by the 1997 Seattle Mariners. The same could be said this year.

 So for four years in a row a Baltimore Orioles players has led the overall MLB in Homers.

The same could be said this year.

On the top of the odds board is Giancarlo Stanton yet again.  The 2016 MLB ALL Star Game HR Derby Champ, amassed 27 HRs in 413 AB during 2016, but that was way down from 27 HRs in 279 AB during 2015.

The problem with Stanton is he always suffers and injury during a season.  He did lead the NL in 2014 with 37 HRs in his only full year in the last 5 seasons.  I may have eve picked him if he was not the favorite.  I will take a pass on him this year.

The 1st good odd that stands out to me is Nolan Arenado at +1500.  The Rockies premiere player has led the NL in HRs for the last 2 campaigns, smacking 42 HRs and 41 HRs respectively. 

It is not foreign to think he could approach 50 with this his Age 26 year forthcoming.
