Done Deal: Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins agree on the biggest contract in baseball history
2014-11-17

The money is notable, but in reality its a natural tick up from the last biggest deal in baseball history, that being Miguel Cabreras $290 million+ pact with the Tigers. Stanton is younger and the deal is longer, of course, but this is not, contrary to what youll hear in the coming days, paradigm-breaking or some new high watermark in player greed, owner foolishness or anything like that. Baseballs revenues are up dramatically. It was inevitable that a young, talented player was going to make a some serious bank like this eventually.

What is notable is the structure. Stanton, who is now 25, can opt out of the deal not long after he turns 30. Alex Rodriguez had a similar opt-out provision in his original $250 million deal he signed to join the Rangers. He exercised that opt-out in 2007 and signed an even bigger deal. Stanton, should he continue to be the top slugger in baseball could do the same. It could also lead the famously fire-selling Jeff Loria to move Stanton as that time approaches. And, even if this deal seems gigantic now, its a movable contract, I reckon, if Stanton remains elite.

And if he isnt the top slugger? If he becomes an OK but not great power hitter like some have in the past? Well, then the Marlins are on the hook for a long, long time for an awful lot of money.

Still, I think Id rather gamble $325 million on Stanton at 25 than a lot of other free agents closer to 30. And if I am the Miami Marlins a team with a lot of young talent but in search of credibility and some genuine devotion from its often-burned fan base its not a bad gamble to take.

MLB: Los Angeles tries to cool down hot-lanta
2010-06-03

Over the past two weeks, the Atlanta Braves have vaulted from worst to first in the NL East. The next two weeks could determine if BMW Motorcyles Rental in Costa Rica they have what it takes to stay there. The surging Braves look to win nine straight games for the first time in a decade when they open a season-high 11-game trip Thursday night against a Los Angeles Dodgers team seeking its fifth consecutive victory. Sportsbook.com offers Los Angeles as the -125 favorite for Thursday.
Atlanta’s chances of reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2005 weren’t looking good as a nine-game losing streak from April 21-29 dropped the club a season-worst six games below .500. The Braves (31-22, +5.4) were still 6 1/2 games back of first-place Philadelphia on May 17, but they’ve gone a Major League-best 13-2 to open up a 2 1/2-game division lead.
Atlanta finished a three-game sweep of the defending NL champion Phillies on Wednesday with a 2-1 win. The Braves, who have outscored their opponents 51-21 during the eight-game winning streak, haven’t won nine consecutive games since reeling off a franchise-best 15 straight from April 16-May 2, 2000. They will begin this road trip sporting a 18-5 mark when playing with a rested bullpen that pitched one inning or less in the last game.
No team has had both a winning and losing streak of at least nine games in a single season since Cleveland in 2008, which had runs of 10 games.
It would certainly be a surprise if Atlanta can continue its winning ways over this next stretch. After this four-game series at Dodger Stadium, the Braves have four in Arizona followed by a three-game series at AL Central-leading Minnesota. Under Bobby Cox, Atlanta is only 26-32 after allowing three runs or less in five straight contests and the road excursion returns home for three against Tampa Bay, owner of baseball’s best record.
The Dodgers (31-22, +3.2) enter this series having won three straight games in their final at-bat. Garret Anderson came up with the big hit in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Arizona, driving in Matt Kemp with a two-out single in the 14th inning. Anderson helped his team move to 11-5 in one run games this season.
Los Angeles has won four straight despite Andre Ethier’s struggles at the plate. Ethier is 1 for 14 in three games since coming off the disabled list after missing the previous 15 because of a broken right pinky finger. He hit .367 (11 for 30) with three homers, two doubles and nine RBIs in seven games against Atlanta last season, but the Dodgers lost four.
Hiroki Kuroda (5-3, 3.55 ERA, 1.358 WHIP) takes the ball for Los Angeles looking to bounce back from his worst outing of the season. After going 3-1 with a 3.58 ERA in his first five May starts, Kuroda was tagged for seven runs - five earned - and 10 hits in a season-low four innings of Saturday’s 11-3 loss at Colorado.
Kuroda is 1-1 with a 1.20 ERA in two starts against the Braves, and in his only outing against them at Dodger Stadium, the right-hander threw a one-hitter, winning 3-0 on July 7, 2008 and L.A. is 7-1 when he is the series Game 1 starter.
Atlanta counters with Kris Medlen (2-1, 2.85, 1.317), who is 1-0 with a 3.22 ERA in four starts since joining the rotation. Against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Medlen gave up three runs and nine hits in six innings of a 6-3 win. This will be the right-hander’s first career start against the Dodgers after going 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA in four relief outings against them last season.
Sportsbook.com has the Dodgers as -127 money line favorites with the total Ov8. Los Angeles is 12-2 after three consecutive games versus a NL West clubs this season and 14-4 UNDER after a contest where the bullpen threw six or more innings. Atlanta has won their last five against teams with a positive record; however is 2-9 as road underdog. The Braves are 13-3 OVER in away encounters after allowing four runs or less in five straight games since 2008.
The First pitch is set for 10:10 Eastern on MLB-TV and can also be viewed in local markets. The StatFox Power Line shows L.A. Dodgers -111, indicating a slight overpricing.

2009-07-28

Houston at Chicago

The Chicago Cubs (52-45, -1.9 units) played liked they preferred first place, as Alfonso Soriano hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 13th inning last night that allowed the Cubs to stay at the top of the division. Chicago has played fewer games to date than any NL Central team; however is three games clear of any competitor in the loss column.

Ryan Dempster (5-5, 4.09) comes off the DL today for Chicago, after missing just over three weeks with a fractured toe after jumping over the dugout railing to go on the field and celebrate a win over Milwaukee on July 5. Dempster has loved pitching at Wrigley Field and is 4-1 there this season. Sportsbook.com has established the Cubs as -110 money line home favorites, which suits Dempster, who is 32-12 at home when the money line is +125 to -125 during his big league career. (Team's Record)

He will go to battle against Roy Oswalt (6-4, 3.66) of Houston. Earlier this season, whispers were circulating maybe Oswalt was no longer a first-rate pitcher. In his last six starts, Oswalt has proven otherwise to his critics. The right-hander has 2.00 ERA in his last six outings, with the Astros having won the last five. He and his Astros teammates are 20-5 vs. a NL team with an on-base percentage .325 or worse.

The Cubs will be chasing a sixth straight win and are 47-24 as a favorite of -110 or higher this season. This division battle begins at 8:05 Eastern on WGN.

Philadelphia at Arizona

The Phillies (57-40, +10.2 units) are thankful Arizona has a retractable roof in downtown Phoenix, since tonight’s game time temperature is expected to be around 115 degrees again. Philadelphia hopes Cole Hamels (6-5, 4.66) can regain late season form from a year ago and put some heat on the Diamondbacks. With the Phillies having won 18 of last 21 games, they will be facing one of the hottest pitchers in baseball all season in Dan Haren (10-5, 2.14).

Many have speculated Hamels heavy workload from a season ago has taken a toll this season, with a number poor performances and missed starts. The lefthander has looked better lately, allowing four runs in 12 innings in his last two starts. This will be a good test for Hamels to see if he really has regained prior form, since he is 2-3, with hefty 5.81 ERA on the road. In the past, Hamels and the Phils have feasted on revolting teams like Arizona (43-57, -16.2 units), with 13-3 road record against losing teams.

The D-Backs play a whole lot better when Haren in on the mound, winning 13 of 20 games, with the strong possibility of emerging victorious five other times if they would have had any offensive production. Haren showed a human side in his last start, charged with four runs on eight hits in five innings against the Pittsburgh, as he struggled with command. That was only the second time all season Haren surrendered more than three runs, his first such outing since May 23 in Oakland.

Haren has been a shutdown starter, with 7-0 record after the opposing team scored five or more runs. (D-Backs Record) Arizona opened as a -135 money line favorite, but sports bettors quickly pounded that line and the Snakes are now -112. That doesn’t change the fact Haren and Arizona are 9-3 as -110 to -150 home favorites, with the Phillies 11-3 in road games after a win by four runs or more this season.

Haren will throw the first pitch in the desert at 9:40 Eastern and fans can watch in local markets or on MLB.TV.
