MLB – San Diego Padres tweak rotation
2021-02-08

After absorbing an early exit last season, the San Diego Padres started wheeling and dealing to solidify their rotation and be more competitive next season.
The Padres acquired Jason Bartlett and a player yet to be determined in a deal that sent Adam Russell and Cesar Ramos, along with minor league prospects Brandon Gomes and infielder Cole Figueroa to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Bartlett, who averaged .254 with four homeruns and 47 RBI’s last season, will replace Miguel Tejada in the rotation after the 36-year-old shortstop signed with the San Francisco Giants.
Bartlett, who was originally drafted by the Padres in the 13th round of the 2001 amateur draft before trading him to Minnesota, expressed his excitement for having been traded in a team where he feels he can shine on.
“I'm excited,” said Bartlett. “I never got to the big leagues over there. I've heard the National League game is a lot different. My wife and I love the beach, so we're excited about that. Coming from Tampa, there's no better place to go than San Diego. Hopefully, I can be there for a while.”
Bartlett, who was an all-star in 2009 after setting career-best average of .320 with 14 homers and 66 RBIs to go with 90 runs scored and 30 stolen bases, had a poor performance last season, but he is hoping that he would get his rhythm back with his new team and help them reach their goal next season.
“Something clicked that year where everything was going right,” Bartlett said. “Hopefully it clicks again.”
Bartlett can become a free agent after the 2011 World Series, but Padres general manager Jed Hoyer is hoping that they could keep him in their fold for a long period of time. “Certainly in making this deal, I'm hopeful we can keep him in a Padres uniform beyond one year,” he said.
Hoyer said that he’s very familiar with Bartlett after spending some time in Boston’s front office and he believes that Bartlett would give them a big boost in their campaign next season.
“He was hard to play against,” Hoyer said. “He's a pest. He gets on base, he has good at-bats. He's a good all-around baseball player. There was always a focus on that breakout year he had, but even before that season you didn't want to see him in the batter's box. He's a player you didn't want to play against.”
Meanwhile, sources also said that the Padres are set to acquire second baseman Orlando Hudson, pending the completion of physical examinations.
According to sources, Hudson, who played with the Minnesota Twins last season where he averaged .268 and had 37 RBIs, will reportedly sign a two-year contract worth $11.5 million, and will replace David Eckstein in the Padres’ rotation.
The 33-year-old second baseman, who also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Toronto Blue Jays, will receive $4 million in 2011, $5.5 million in 2012 with an $8 million option for 2013 with a $2 million buyout clause.
Padres general manager Hoyer has yet to announce the deal officially, but the acquisition of Hudson and the trade deal that they had would make them a team to watch next season. The Baseball Odds for the Padres winning the National League pennant in 2011 is +5000 making them the longest shot to win this coming season? Could be an interesting wager.

World Series Game 2 Betting Guide
2021-10-28

San Francisco leads series 1-0

Thursday, 7:55 p.m. EDT

Betting Lines: San Francisco Giants -117, Texas Rangers +107 Total: 7

After a surprising offensive output in Game 1, the Giants look to take a 2-0 series lead when they send Matt Cain (13-11, 3.14 ERA) to the mound Thursday. Left-hander C.J. Wilson (15-8, 3.35 ERA) will try to restore order for Texas.

Cain picked up his first win of the postseason last time out, throwing seven shutout innings and allowing just two hits in Game 3 of the NLCS. In two playoff starts, Cain has yet to give up an earned run through 13.2 innings of work. Including those games, the right-hander has been quite impressive at home this year, going 9-4 with a 2.60 ERA. Cain’s one career start against Texas came last year. He earned a win after throwing eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball en route to a 2-1 San Francisco win. With the win in Game 1, the Giants have now won four consecutive games against Texas dating back to 2009.

It’s been a bit of a bumpy ride for Wilson since dominating Tampa Bay in his postseason debut. He took the loss in Game 5 of the ALCS against New York, lasting just five innings and giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and four walks. His postseason record now stands at 1-1 with a 3.93 ERA. Including the playoffs, the southpaw has had decent success on the road this year, posting a 5-6 record with a 3.03 ERA. Thursday marks the first time in his career that Wilson will face San Francisco.

A couple MLB betting trends indicate that the Giants represent the better value for World Series betting fans.

Play On - Home teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (SAN FRANCISCO) - with a starting pitcher whose strikes out 5 or more batters per start, with a hot starting pitcher- ERA less than 2.50 over his last 5 starts. (82-38 over the last 5 seasons.) (68.3%, +42 units. Rating = 3*).

Play Against - Road teams (TEXAS) - with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.300 or better on the season-AL, starting a over rested pitcher who is working on 7 or more days rest. (72-34 over the last 5 seasons.) (67.9%, +37.2 units. Rating = 3*).

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES at SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
2021-10-21

NLCS Game 4, San Francisco leads series 2-1

Wednesday, 7:55 p.m. EDT

Betting Odds: San Francisco -108, Philadelphia -102, Total: 7.5

San Francisco looks to take a commanding three-games-to-one lead when it sends Madison Bumgarner (7-6, 3.00) to the mound in Game 4. Philadelphia counters with Joe Blanton (9-6, 4.82 ERA).

Bumgarner picked up the win in the series-clinching Game 4 of the NLDS against Atlanta, throwing six innings and allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five. The southpaw is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA over his past three starts. Bumgarner struggled a bit at home this year, going 1-3 with a 4.60 ERA. By contrast, his ERA on the road during the regular season was 1.91. Wednesday marks his first career start against Philadelphia.

Blanton makes his first playoff start of the year in Game 4. The right-hander hasn’t pitched since September 29 where he went seven innings, surrendering only an unearned run and three hits in a 7-1 win over the Nationals. The Phillies have won Blanton’s past seven starts and 10 of his past 11 outings. He struggled a bit on the road this year, going 4-4 with a 5.31 ERA. Blanton hasn’t fared very well against the Giants in his career either, taking a 2-3 mark and a 4.73 ERA into Wednesday’s matchup. However, his lone 2010 start against San Francisco was encouraging. Blanton picked up the win after scattering eight hits and two runs over 6.1 innings.

According to this key baseball betting trend, those betting on the Giants appear to be on the right side:

Play On - Home teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (SAN FRANCISCO) - cold hitting team - batting .225 or worse over their last 5 games against opponent starting a pitcher who gave up <=2 earned runs in his last 2 outings. (125-78 over the last 5 seasons.) (61.6%, +49.3 units. Rating = 3*).
