MLB Friday

Tampa Bay Rays at Cleveland Indians
The Indians are not officially dead yet, but have no doubt they are the long shot to make the post season. Terry Francona's club will try to control what they can and that is to win this game. Tampa is down and out for 2014, but they will send Chris Archer who has pitched great baseball as of late with 3 quality starts and last 2 he was almost unhittable. Archer road starts are better, but he is pitching in a bad spot. His recent quality starts are some what product of his bounce back from his 2 bad outings and now he's exceeded his average coming off a no run two hit 6 inning game against Chicago he looks to regress here. Cleveland sending their top gun Corey  Kluber to the mound. He has been high quality pitcher all around, but little better at home and the Tribes are 12-4. We'll play against Tampa on the Run line where the Rays are dismal 66-93.

CLEVELAND INDIANS -1.5 at +125 for 1 unit(L)
Indians won, but didn't cover the runline.

MLB Thursday

Seattle Marines at Toronto Blue Jays
Yes we're still on this series. The M's had their best chance last night, but nothing doing with their post season hopes dimming Toronto is looking formidable at home. Mariners will start Tom Wilhelmsen and bull pen committee. Toronto will go with Daniel Norris and bull pen corp. As we would take action here on Toronto with Seattle on fade with 3 straight losses or more.

TORONTO BLUE JAYS +114 for 1 unit(L)

MLB Wednesday

Seattle Mariners at Toronto Blue Jays
I wrote about the Mariners and took a loss with their top road pitcher.  The turning tide has been too much for the Mariners to overcome and to make matters worse the Blue Jays bats have come alive. Mark Burehrle is the Jays top money pitcher in a spot to improve. Taijuan Walker looking to stretch out. He's kept Seattle in the hunt, but without momentum this will be a tough night for Walker.

SEATTLE MARINERS -115 for 1 unit(W)

Kansas City Royals at Cleveland Indians
Cleveland for a short while closed the gap holding on to the conclusion of their suspended game only to drop the second game. The Tribe does have winning record at home, but momentum is weak. Danny Salazar will take the ball, 6-7 with 4.02 ERA, his team winning at home 6-3. Unfortunately he comes into a spot to regress. Yordano Ventura is a road warrior, 7-3 with KC 8-4, pitching 10 quality games out of 12. Going to take Royals with cheese.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS +103 for1 unit(W)

Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros
Despite Houston's losing season they put up 10 runs and held the Mariners to 1 run. Dallas Keuchel was masterful going 8 inning and preserving the pen. Now Houston will send another money pitcher Collin McHugh who has been impressive winning 4 in a row and recently beat Seattle 2-1 at Safeco. Seattle's starter Hisashi Iwakuma is showing signs of weakening. Houston took the first series in Seattle back in Sept. 8th to 10th which started the Mariner's slide, losing the Oakland series and splitting the Angles series. However this Seattle team still in the post season run has played better away, 8-1 as road favorites, 9-1 after allowing 5 runs or more, with 16-5 record following a loss.  Houston is 17-48 after opponent scores 2 runs or less. Iwakuma on a bounce back spot pitching 10-3 on the road.  Seattle in need of this win will force their will.

SEATTLE MARINERS -132 for 1 unit(L)

MLB Saturday

Hey gang how you guys doing? I've been having health issues this season and ended up making a one week stay at the hospital. I'm glad that's over. Hope to make some noise down the stretch.

San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks
Game 1 of this series was a slug fest with the Pads holding on 6-5 and easily sailing Over the 7.5 total.  Today the line gets tighter and total lower. The Padres showed better pitching and they will send Tyson Ross with 22 quality starts out of 30 games. He has been outstanding at home, but not so away. He is also high Under total pitcher with better than 65% Under away, better than 70% against right hand pitching. Chase Anderson and the Diamondbacks are having a tough time trying to stop the mounting losses. Chase is 2-5 in last 7 starts and the Diamondbacks have dropped 7 Ina row. Their last win was at San Diego on Sept. 4th. Matter of fact that was a series win and Diamondbacks did it in dominant fashion.  Anderson is much better at home and this is a bounce back start. We side with the slight home dog Arizona and hold off on the total with declining number.
