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

When it comes to rare feats of baseball greatness, there’s little that can compare to the elusive Triple Crown. How lucky are we, Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas Rusia 2018 Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online sinotruck costa rica sitrak 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 hasn’t been done since 1937. In total, it’s 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), it’s 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 baseball’s best have what it takes to put together one of the most statistically improbable seasons of all time? Let’s 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, Cabrera’s biggest obstacle has been the incredible two months that Texas’ 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, Cabrera’s relatively cool June (he hit a miserable .323) has put him well behind Hamilton for the AL’s—and MLB’s—highest average, at .347 to Hamilton’s .362. Unless Hamilton gets hurt or just stops seeing the ball (unlikely) it seems that Cabrera’s 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 he’ll spoil any chance that the Rangers’ star might have had—Cabrera’s 89 RBI are 15 more than Hamilton’s 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 aren’t 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 were…that’s a good month for Barroid Bonds), he hasn’t 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 Phillies’ Ryan Howard. Keep in mind, however, that there’s a big drop-off after Howard. Votto would be one off the NL lead for RBI if the Phillies’ first baseman wasn’t 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 Reds’ 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 supremacy—if his teammates can get on base ahead of him.

1. Roy Halladay (and Adam Wainwright, and Josh Johnson). OK, I’m kind of cheating here, but hear me out. All three of these guys are right at the top of the NL’s strikeout leaderboard, Halladay’s 149 just leading Johnson’s 146 and Wainright’s 142. That’s a toss-up that makes any one of those players a big danger to the others’ hopes for a Triple Crown. The reason it’s 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, that’s 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 it’s unlikely that the Marlins will be able to provide him with the 6-7 wins he’d need to win the Triple Crown. Halladay has the best chance, because his win total would be higher if the Phillies’ offense didn’t have such a dreadful year. Now that that seems to be turning around, given his history of ridiculous efficiency, it’s easier to imagine Halladay lowering his ERA to beat Johnson than Wainright. More likely, however, I don’t see an NL Triple Crown winner for the pitchers this year, as the three power pitches cannibalize each other’s chances. Surprisingly Roy Halladay trails Wainwright in the Cy Young lines at www.sportsbook.com currently at +200 that Halladay wins it.




MLB: Can you trust these money-making MLB hurlers?
2009-06-24

Each baseball season, we learn by following who are the best pitchers in baseball. We’ve become conditioned to look for names like Roy Halladay, Josh Beckett, Johan Santana, Tim Lincecum, C.C. Sabathia and others. Most years, pitchers targeted for greatness also put it all together and this year we have seen Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley and Dan Haren to name a few become dominant, with bright futures ahead of them.

With success come overvalued money lines, as oddsmakers smell opportunity and will make sports bettors pay to play on their favorite pitchers with proven track records. A big time pitcher like Halladay has 10-1 record and Toronto has won 10 of his 14 starts, yet baseball bettors have walked away with a mere +2.7 units of profit backing the Blue Jays chucker.

A far simpler method of seeking tidy sums of money is to follow what pitchers have brought in the most money. For example, does it make sense to take the Top 5 pitchers in units won and bet those toeing the rubber and their respective team’s until they prove they are not worthy of our money? Or are these pitchers such a crap shoot, that from start to start they are unpredictable as to what type of outcome they will provide?

Here is a look at the best five pitchers in the game and what their prospects are in terms of future playability.

At the ripe old age of 29, Matt Palmer (6-1, 8-2 team record, +9.1 units) made his way onto major league roster in San Francisco and started three games for Giants with 0-2 record and ERA of 8.53 last season. Palmer made his way south to join the Los Angeles Angels and was ticketed for more minor league duty. The Angels pitching staff was a quandary in the spring and Palmer showed enough to be a starter. Working with pitching coach John Butcher, Palmer became more consistent in throwing strikes and has been hitting his spots while changing speeds.

Palmer has kept the Halos in games and has been the beneficiary of good offensive outings, as Los Angeles has scored four or more runs in all but one of his starts. Palmer has been up to the pitching challenge, having faced the ace of opposing team in seven of his 10 starts. You can’t help but wonder if the right-hander is enjoying his proverbial 15 minutes of fame. Right-hand hitters are batting just .223 against him; however history is not on his side arriving in the bigs so late in his career.

Betting- Consider mostly home starts at -125 or less

Josh Johnson (7-1, 12-3, +8.9 units) is mountain of a man at 6’7, 230 pounds for Florida. The 25-year old is blossoming into quite a pitcher, be it relative obscurity. Johnson’s fastball of 92-96 looks faster because of his size and downhill angle. He’s become proficient of going up the ladder (low pitches early in the count and moving up later) and has power slider. His mental makeup comes thru, as he and the Marlins are 5-1 on the road and perfect 5-0 as underdogs. Night vision goggles required for opposing hitters, with 1.74 ERA after dark.
Betting – Strong play as present time

In the last few years, if you wanted to make money, it was bet against the Giants with Matt Cain (9-1, 11-3, +8.2 units) pitching. The 24-year old former first round pick, either received little run support, or had one bad inning that resulted in too many 5-4 or 3-2 losses. He’s been everyone’s favorite play against pitcher, until this season. With a reduction of weight in the off-season, his four-seam fastball is more in the mid-90’s and tailing two-seamer has been lower in the strike zone, resulting in fewer fly balls. He’s better than 2-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio for the first time in three years and has more pitched games with two or less walks then in the past. Still has big upside, if he keeps command and wants to thrive as strong No.2 with Lincecum.

Betting – Terrific play as favorite with San Fran 9-1.

To give you an idea of how long Tim Wakefield has played Major League baseball, the year he came up “Aladdin” was the top grossing movie (1992). Back then, Wakefield probably messed around throwing a knuckleball with his teammates in jest. In about six weeks, Wakefield (9-3, 11-3, +7.9 units) will be 43 years old and he’s been a god-send for Boston with an ineffective Daisuke Matsuzaka and John Smoltz finally making the active roster. Nothing has really changed for Wakefield’s fluttering pitch, other than the fact he’s seen Red Sox hitters pound out six or more runs in nine of his 14 starts.

Betting – Red Sox are 7-0 at Fenway with Wakefield tossing, nonetheless hard to support at much more than -160 at home.
Here’s a rarity, Jason Marquis (9-4, 10-4, +7.3 units) admits he likes pitching at Coors Field. The traveled right-hander took the right attitude and embraced pitching in the Colorado Mountains and he along with newfound teammates are 5-2 at home or on the road. Granted his ERA and WHIP are decidedly higher at home, but that is to be expected. Since being hammered in the middle of May by Houston (nine runs), Marquis has surrender four or less runs in last seven starts. He’s been much more effective during the day with 2.93 ERA compared 4.33 under the lights.

Betting – Other then 2005, when Marquis was 15-7 in St. Louis, little reason to believe he will keep pitching this well unless the Rockies score seven runs a game. He is however worth a look as underdog with 6-1 mark. (Rockies record)
