The Game Odds Are Posted For Opening Series MLB 2014 in Sydney: Dodgers Vs Dbacks + Picks

Clayton Kershaw gets the nod in Sydney, Australia for the MLB opener.  He may also pitch the MLB North American Opener next Sunday in San Diego, before potentially throwing 5 days later for the Dodgers Season Opener.  This could mean he Starts 3 of the clubs 6 games.  If Greinke follows him in SD, that could mean 5 Starts for these guys in the teams first 8 games, with potentially Ryu also throwing 2 matches.

Chuck Booth gave me this mission to kick of the year writing this article.  We both come from a long history of predicting outcomes of games.

Some years we have done well, and some years have not been okay.

It has been researched and studied that Doubleheaders have a high probability of seeing a split for the 2 games.

You throw in the neutral site factor of this series, and all home field advantage is thrown out the window.

Chuck nailed the prediction of what they would put the game odds for the 2 games – based on the Starting Pitchers. Read the rest of this entry

Mike Carp was originally a 9th round pick of the New York Mets out of High School in 2004. He made him Major League debut in 2009 with the Mariners at just 22 Years of Age.

Mike Carp was originally a 9th round pick of the New York Mets out of High School in 2004. He made his Major League debut in 2009 with the Mariners at just 22 Years of Age.  Over the last 4 years. he has hit for a Career 3 Slash Line of .266/.336/.796 in 650 AB.  This is basically a season worth of At-Bats for the man from Long Beach. CA.  With those numbers, the LHB has 26 HRs, 38 Doubles and 96 RBI.  This pickup by the Red Sox may turn out to be a real bargain of the year.

By Ryan Dana (MLB Reports Writer and Red Sox Correspondent): 

I knew I would be devoting an article to this player sooner or later, but what better time than now? From top prospect to not being good enough for The Seattle Mariners 40 man roster, Mike Carp has emerged as a steady contributor to the current 1st place team in the AL East, The Boston Red Sox .

The 6 FT 2, 210 LB OF has been perhaps the most underrated pick up of the past offseason for the Boston Red Sox. At the time there was speculation whether he would even make the team, but questioning his viability as a Major League hitter has been put to rest at this point.

As Spring Training rolled around, the Red Sox were looking for depth at 1st Base behind newly signed Mike Napoli. They got Lyle Overbay into camp to compete for the spot and started giving Daniel Nava reps at the position too.

Then, falling into the Sox laps, came Mike Carp via the Seattle Mariners, the solution to the Red Sox 1B depth. All that was asked in return is the famous ‘PTBNL’ or cash.
