Cubs acquire Tommy La Stella from the Braves
2014-11-18

La Stella made his major league debut this past summer at age 25 and went on a bit of a hot streak out of the gate, but the second baseman wound up batting just .251/.328/.317 across 360 total plate appearances. The former eighth-round pick (2011) does have some pretty good minor league numbers, but hes not really considered a great prospect.

Vizcaino, 24, owns a 4.84 ERA in 22 1/3 career major league innings.

The Braves appear to be embarking on somewhat of a rebuild under new president of baseball operations John Hart and theyll now have more money to work with for international acquisitions.

Triple Crown winner in 2010 MLB?
2010-08-19

When it comes to rare feats of baseball greatness, thereís little that can compare to the elusive Triple Crown. How lucky are we, us mere mortals, to witness six legitimate Triple Crown contenders this year? Baseball betting is keeping a close eye on this race.

To put this in perspective, no one has won a batting Triple Crown (leading the AL, NL, or MLB in batting average, home runs, and RBI) since Carl Yastrzemski did it in 1967. In the National League, it hasnít been done since 1937. In total, itís happened just 13 times in either league since 1900.

While the pitching Triple Crown is a much more attainable award (winners lead a league in ERA, wins, and strikeouts), itís still quite a rarity. Sandy Koufax did it three times in four years, and Lefty Grove, Grover Cleveland Alexander, and Roger Clemens put together back-to-back Triple Crowns during their careers. Most recently, Randy Johnson climbed the mountain in 2002, Johan Santana won a major league Triple Crown in 2006, and the following year, Jake Peavy won one in the NL. Still, only 30 of these magical seasons have come together for a pitcher since the turn of the 20th century, and a majority of those came well before 1950.

In a year that has featured a few breakout rookies, a number of magnificent pitching performances, the vanishing specter of steroids, and what looks to be one of the most exciting NL Wild Card races in recent memory, this is truly a special season. But do baseballís best have what it takes to put together one of the most statistically improbable seasons of all time? Letís go down the list, from least likely to most likely.

3. Miguel Cabrera (and Josh Hamilton). Once the only legitimate threat of breaking the 43-year streak without a Triple Crown winner, Cabreraís biggest obstacle has been the incredible two months that Texasí Josh Hamilton has put together. Hamilton hit .454 in June, and followed that up with a .421 batting average for the month of July. Meanwhile, Cabreraís relatively cool June (he hit a miserable .323) has put him well behind Hamilton for the ALísóand MLBísóhighest average, at .347 to Hamiltonís .362. Unless Hamilton gets hurt or just stops seeing the ball (unlikely) it seems that Cabreraís shot at a Triple Crown is fading. But Cabrera is leading in the MVP lines at www.sportsbook.com he currently sits in the lead at -150, while Hamilton is even money. He leads Hamilton by a couple of home runs (25 to 23), but his RBI total is so far ahead of the rest of the pack that heíll spoil any chance that the Rangersí star might have hadóCabreraís 89 RBI are 15 more than Hamiltonís total, and the Rangers have a history of fading late in the season. Both of these guys would need an injury for an AL Triple Crown to be a realistic goal.


2. Joey Votto. Votto is having just the kind of season that wins a Triple Crown in a down year for NL batters. The problem is, his teammates just arenít helping him out. Despite a .322 batting average that tops the league (and has been much higher) and an NL-leading 26 home runs (proof that steroids are less of a problem than they once wereÖthatís a good month for Barroid Bonds), he hasnít had the runners on base in front of him. His 70 RBI puts him tied for third in the league in RBI, 11 behind the Philliesí Ryan Howard. Keep in mind, however, that thereís a big drop-off after Howard. Votto would be one off the NL lead for RBI if the Philliesí first baseman wasnít playing. Howard pumped up his RBI totals in a big way over the past month, and any cool-off for him would be great news for the Redsí breakout star. Votto has hit a bit of a bump in the road in terms of power production. Over the course of the next two months, Votto still has a chance to surpass Howard for RBI supremacyóif his teammates can get on base ahead of him.

1. Roy Halladay (and Adam Wainwright, and Josh Johnson). OK, Iím kind of cheating here, but hear me out. All three of these guys are right at the top of the NLís strikeout leaderboard, Halladayís 149 just leading Johnsonís 146 and Wainrightís 142. Thatís a toss-up that makes any one of those players a big danger to the othersí hopes for a Triple Crown. The reason itís so hard to see if any of these guys is capable of taking home the hardware is that, strangely enough, Wainwright has the most wins of the pack, but the highest ERA; and Johnson, who has by far the fewest wins, has by far the lowest ERA. To sum up, thatís Wainright with 14 wins, 2.23 ERA; Halladay with 12 wins, 2.21 ERA, and Johnson with 10 wins, 1.72 ERA. Overall, Johnson has to be taken out because itís unlikely that the Marlins will be able to provide him with the 6-7 wins heíd need to win the Triple Crown. Halladay has the best chance, because his win total would be higher if the Philliesí offense didnít have such a dreadful year. Now that that seems to be turning around, given his history of ridiculous efficiency, itís easier to imagine Halladay lowering his ERA to beat Johnson than Wainright. More likely, however, I donít see an NL Triple Crown winner for the pitchers this year, as the three power pitches cannibalize each otherís chances. Surprisingly Roy Halladay trails Wainwright in the Cy Young lines at www.sportsbook.com currently at +200 that Halladay wins it.




MLB: The Texas Rangers are an Under team!
2009-08-19

One of the more unusual aspects of the 2009 baseball season has been the play of the Texas Rangers and not for the typical reasons many would consider. The Rangers are still within striking distance of the Los Angeles Angels for the lead in the AL West and are running neck and neck with Boston for the wild card after sweeping them at home this past weekend. What makes this Texas team absolutely crazy is how they have evolved against the oddsmakers totals.

After years of being a high scoring club that more resembled a top level slow-pitch softball team by the way they could score runs, these Rangers are fairly pedestrian 12th in Major League Baseball at 4.8 runs per game. The shocker is the pitching. Having played seven more home games than road games to date this season, Texas is sixth in runs allowed at (that is SIXTH, like in 7-1= 6) 4.3 runs per game. While most Rangers fans only dreamed of ever seeing competent big league pitching, manager Ron Washington actually has them performing it.

With a slightly above average offense and a pitching staff taking this team places it has never seen, Texas has confounded oddmakers and bettors alike. Texas is the top Under team in baseball by a large margin at 73-40-4. If you analyzed the standings of the top Under teams in baseball like the regular baseball standings, the Rangers would have a lead similar to the Yankees, 7.5 games clear of the second place Chicago White Sox, who is 67-49-3 Under this season.

What has accounted for this change in Texas baseball? Rest assured the skipper Washington wished he had more offense, it just hasnít happened. The Rangers Ballpark at Arlington is still the same; short fences in the power alleys will still surrender an ample amount of home runs, with the Rangers second in baseball to the Yankees. However, when you look at the hitting numbers, they donít add up like prior years. Michael Young is still Michael Young, hitting well over .300, but heís the only starter even close. Second baseman Ian Kinsler and Hank Blalock are closer to the Mendoza-line (.200 batting average) than to batting .300. Josh Hamiltonís off-season indiscretions aside, heís a mere shell of the player who was a true All-Star in 2008, currently with eight homers and 40 runs batted in.

In 2009, this Rangers club is built around pitching and its new philosophy. President Nolan Ryan didnít want any more coddling of pitchers; he wants them to be a man like he was. Pitch counts are for wussies, throw strikes and have your fielders take care of the rest.
Consider these un-Rangersí like numbers. In the American League, Texas is 3rd in ERA and WHIP, and 5th in batting average allowed and on-base percentage allowed. Frank Francisco and C.J. Wilson lead a bullpen that has converted 36 of 45 save attempts, among the best in baseball. Plus, collectively, the bullpen has a rare better than 2-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio.

Though it takes getting used to, at almost three-quarters of the way thru the season, Texas is Under team and itís not a fluke. This is supported by 39-20-3 Under record at home, 29-11-2 Under record versus left-hand starters and 37-20-2 Under mark as a favorite.
Our sitting president talked a year ago about change, the Texas Rangers represent one of the biggest changes in baseball in 2009, being a decided Under team.
