MLB Spring Exhibition games

2 games I'm playing today.

Brewers at White Sox. Guys are getting sent down and this game holds some travel advantage for the Sox playing in Tucson. Getting better price than any other books on the net.

CHI -112 for 2 units(W)

Devil Rays at Reds. I don't need to say much about this match up do I? Tampa Bay has shown very little in the spring. Kind of expensive, but Reds should win hands down.

CIN -146 for 1 unit(W)

2-0 +3.00 units

Tuesday MLB Houston vs Atlanta

This looks like a good card for today's exhibition game at Kissimmee, Florida.
Astros take a short trip to The Ballpark at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex to meet up with Atlanta Braves. Pitchers are having longer outing as players are getting sent down.
On the mound Hudson for Braves and Oswalt for Astros. Taking the Stros as the visiting dog.

HOU +111 for 2 units(W)

Astros come up big!
1-0 +2.22 units

MLB Saturday

Yankees travel to Brandenton today to face Paul Maholm and the Pirates. I think Maholm is headed for a winning 2007 season. He will face Kei Igawa who is known as a slow starter. Igawa is not pitching like he was in Japan during his Hashin Tiger days. He was a mid 85~86 mph fastball guy with good change up to keep the hitters off balance. Now he is throwing harder in the 90's and pitching off balance, according to Posada. I would attribute that to Igawa trying to impress his new team doing more than he should. Until he settles down I expect more of the same type of outing in his last game, hard time hitting the strike zone.
I've also learned Yankees will be without Giambi, Jeter and Matsui today.

PIT ML +116 for 1 unit

Friday Grapefruit League

Have not seen the line up, but from Ft. Myers to Clearwater is a good travel distance and Boston playing NL team after a split squad game yesterday. I think Phillies have the edge at home.

PHL ML -115 for 1 unit(L)

0-1 -1.15 units

Wednesday Grapefruit League

Finally the Twins will be at home playing the Grapefruit league. I'd like to see the Twins turn it up a notch here as they face the National league Pirates. Getting a decent ML with Twins is a good value in my view.

MIN -118 for 1 unit(L)

Wow, got moosed in grapefruit game.
0-1 -1.18 units

Grapefruit League

I've got to watch couple of Yankee games, one at Legends field and another at Progressive Energy field, my feeling is the projected line up is not quite up to to their potential. I was expecting Yankees to run up the score against the D-Rays, but Shields did a pretty good job.
A-Rod doesn't seem to be up to speed and Matsui doesn't seem to be up to speed. The Pitchers are looking pretty impressive though. If I was feeling bit more daring I would go against the Yanks and take a shot with visiting Pirates today, I think you can get the Bucs at +150 or so, but it looks like good chance of rain and I have not seen Mussina on the mound. Going against the National League at Legends field today Torre might mix the line up a bit and give some of the young guys a chance to play. That means good value for the visiting Bucs with short distance travel from Brandenton. One advantage I do have being in Tampa is I'll get a peak at the starting line up when it first comes out unfortunately I'm not going to carry my computer around so at this point this game is a no play. Too bad there's no totals for the games out NYY games have been low scoring for the first two games which is unusual for March games and very likely to erupt soon.

Another come from behind win for the Yanks second game in a row! The rain did come, but it didn't stop the game. I'll be looking forward to the match up with Detroit Tigers on Monday when the new Japanese pitcher Kei Igawa takes the mound. Tomorrow's game will feature Pavano on the mound for the Yanks on the away game, but no wager here as it looks like a split squad will go on the road trip.
