MLB Tuesday

Re-rack'em with 15 games on board.
Oakland at Texas
There was the Rangers domination over the A's, or maybe it's the road team thing, going until last night when Darvish went down against Oakland in his shortest outing this season. Gray was fantastic for the A's allowing only 3 hits and no runs scored in his first career shutout. Now tonight Texas will send Martin Perez, he's coming off two consecutive shutouts, one of them being Oaklnad, but I do like the A's getting a second look at Perez. Yes, Texas has been dangerous off a loss and good against lefties. However Kazmir is battle tested and looks like another Bartolo Colon in the making. We'll go with the A's.

L.A. Angels at N.Y. Yankees
N.Y., despite all the talk of demise the Yanks are doing fine. They're on top of AL East and showing what all good teams do, win at home. The Japanese acquisition Tanaka has been impressive and batters not knowing this pitcher is an added edge. He's pitching deep, has good stuff and fearless. At 7-4 home record the Yankees are a heavy favorite.  However the Angels tonight will send one of their better money pitcher, Richards, who is a road warrior. L.A. better on the road than at home. The line up matches well and this will probably be the toughest line up Tanka has seen so far. Rolling with the road dog.

L.A. Angels +164 for 1 unit(L)

MLB Friday

Hey fellas, howz everyone doing? It's Friday and I'm so busy can't get all my feelers out. I don't like to chase lines and don't like to fall behind Totals, but that's been the case for games I was watching. One game I'm going to roll with tonight.

Kansas City Royals at Baltimore Orioles
We'll take the game at Camden Yards, although it'll be cool and breezey with good chance of thunder storm around game time. Delays are expected, but if it gets off the O's bats are hot and they are getting runs, but KCR have a good arm with Ventura on a bounce back spot against very pedestrian Jimenez.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS +105 for 1 unit(W)

In case of rain out plan B
Philadelphia Phillies at Arizona Diamondbacks
Continue the fade on Arizona at home. Phillies are doing it on the road and so is Hernandez.

PHILADELPHIA +124 for 1 unit(L)

Arizona Diamondback at Los Angeles Dodgers
Arizona is reeling, but their road trip is showing some light. L.A. Dodgers price has risen a bit much with Beckett pitching today. Going against the home favorite.

Atlanta Braves at New York Mets
Tonight it's Santana against Colon and if you looked at Bart's decline backer should be concerned. The Braves hold 58% win against the Mets over last 3 season. Both pitchers off a rare over exceeding the number by better than 2.5 runs. The play is on Braves and Under.

New York Yankees at Tampa Rays
New York's showing momentum. We have Kuroda going for the Yanks and you know he's going to battle. Bedard making his start at Trop and New York will not be kind.

9-7 +1360

Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres
It's a lefty righty match up at Petco. Right hand Franklin Morales for the visiting Rox and lefty Ian Kennedy for the Pads. Both of these pitchers are capable of getting the ball to 7th inning and they've both shown flashes, but trending Over. Diaz behind the plate has averaged over 9 runs. Morales has already been roughed up in April. Kennedy is doing better, but hittable. We'll see how friendly this park is today.

Pittsburgh Pirates at Cincinnati Reds
At the Great American Ballpark the conditions will be cloudy with likely showers later and the wind will be blowing out to the right field. Homer Baily taking the ball for the Reds was rocked twice by St Louis which now extends his shaky outing back to his last two games last season. What team did that to Baily? It was the Pirates. The Pirates will send Wandy Rodriguez who also has 2 losses however the Pirates have been very tough in division series. Pittsburgh also coming off a loss scoring 1 run or less is another good sign. Taking the Road dog.

PITTSBURGH PIRATES +111 for 1 unit(Suspended)

My favorite baseball day of the week.
Oakland A's at Seattle Mariners
Got a low scoring game in the horizon. Runs will be hard to come by today at SafeCo and that's how we're playing it. Young has not looked better in a long time and Kazmir's going to eat innings, looked for the pitchers to battle.

Here's a match up with old rivalry.

Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees
There are always stories behind this match up and tonight is no different. First series of 2014 between these two clubs and Jacoby Ellsbury making his Yankee start against his former club. Ellsbury's replacement at Boston, Jackie Brady Jr., is on a hot streak. Yanks dropped a close one against Baltimore and Boston took the series against Texas in late inning rally. Buchholtz starting for Boston is coming off a tough outing against Milwaukee and Pineda for New York had a fine start, his first since 2011, however taking the loss. We like the Yankees at home. Should be a hard fought game. Red Sox has not seen much of Pineda.

NEW YORK YANKEES -103 for 1 unit(W)

Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies home opener with Kyle Kendrick getting the start 2 years in a row. Kendrick coming off a quality start against the Rangers. The Brewers will send Kyle Lohse also coming off a quality start. Both pitchers ended in losing games, but in our view it's Lohse to step up his game. Got in on the over night line.

MILWAUKEE BREWERS +106 for 1 unit(W)

2nd game.
Tampa Bay Rays at Kansas City Royals
The Rays for the past 4 seasons are the best road team in the Majors at 176-149 and they will send their top road pitcher Matt Moore, last season went 10-1 with 2.74 ERA in 16 road start. He started 8-0 last year had club record 1.1 ERA in April winning 5 games. However the Royals give him trouble and Tampa has trouble with road openers. We're going with Jason Vargas and KCR.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS -111 for 1 unit(W)

S.F. Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks
We are going with D-Backs today with Bronson Arroyo against Tim Lincecum and the Giants. Both starter have started with issues, but Arizona does not lay down at home and have performed in past April games.

5-3 +1,780

We're going to stay on this series.

L.A. Dodgers at San Diego Padres
Tonight is game 3 with L.A. sending veteran right hand pitcher Dan Haren, who is on close watch with diminishing performance. Dan will rely on his control and experience, but opposing batters have been patient driving up his pitch count and his fast ball in the 80's are hittable. The Padres will send Tyson Ross looking to make an impact.  Ross has a nasty slider flashing signs of things to come this season with high strike out ratio, he struck out 10 in his last 10 inning of spring tune up, and addition of improved change up is going to make him tougher to hit this year.  We're fading the Haren experiment to be short lived.

Sorry guys, missed Monday's post, but subscribers cashed on Cleveland as the dog along with White Sox Runline -1.5 and domination by Miami. Let's move it along.

L.A. Dodgers at San Diego Padres
Game two of this series will feature the Dodgers true no#2 pitcher, Zack Greinke against Ian Kennedy. If you recall this match up from last year these two met when Kennedy was still with the Diamondbacks and batters getting beaned clearing the benches, got Kennedy suspended and Greinke on DL. While it's a interesting story line the media will play with we're more concerned of Greike not being in form and Kennedy settling in at his home park. The Dodgers middle of the line up are not up to speed and though Dodgers hold the edge Bud Black's club will keep you in check. The pitching will set the tone at Pet Co and the low number indicates Vegas feels another low scoring game.
