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



Word came over the weekend that it was coming and now it is reportedly done: Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the 13-year, $325 million contract between Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins is officially in place. It wont be publicly announced by the team until later this week, likely so that a press conference can be arranged.

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.



2010 World Series Betting Preview
2010-10-26

Sportsbook.com World Series Price:

Texas Rangers -150

Giants +130a

The World Series gets underway Wednesda Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online How to bet on 2019 Super Bowl Predictions y night in San Francisco with two unlikely franchises playing for baseball’s most coveted prize. The Giants haven’t won a World Series since 1954 and Texas is making its first-ever appearance in the Fall Classic.

The only pitching matchup set in stone is Game 1 which is scheduled to feature aces Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) and Tim Lincecum (16-10, 3.43 ERA). Lee has been remarkable this postseason, going 3-0 with a 0.75 ERA in three starts. The southpaw has given up just two runs on 13 hits in 24 innings while striking out 34 and walking only one. Lincecum has been tremendous as well, compiling a 2-1 record and a 1.96 ERA in three playoff starts.

Wednesday will mark the first meeting between the two teams this year. They met last year as a part of interleague play with the Giants sweeping Texas in a three-game set in San Francisco. Two of the three games went under the total. Matt Cain threw a gem in the middle game of the series, going eight innings and giving up one run on three hits in a 2-1 Giants win. Texas is likely to see Cain in Game 2.

After Lee, San Francisco should see the combination of C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis. Wilson is 1-1 with a 3.93 ERA so far this postseason while Lewis is 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA. Lewis picked up both wins against the vaunted Yankee offense and limited New York to three runs over 13.2 innings. Meanwhile, the Giants’ rotation behind Lincecum has fared well this postseason with Cain leading the way at 1-0 having yet to give up an earned run. Jonathan Sanchez totes a 2.93 postseason ERA while Madison Bumgarner comes in at 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA in three appearances.

Here are some interesting MLB betting trends for those that will be betting on the World Series.

SAN FRANCISCO is 42-19 (+23.8 Units) against the money line with an on-base percentage of .310 or worse over their last 20 games this season. The average score was SAN FRANCISCO 4.4, OPPONENT 2.7 - (Rating = 3*).

MLB: ALCS Betting Preview – Los Angeles vs. New York
2009-10-16

While pitching is supposed to determine championships, the American League representative to the World Series figures to be what team outscores the other. These are the two best offenses in baseball, at least in terms of runs scored. It could be a high scoring series. New York is a -180 favorite at Sportsbook.com for the series, but there are numerous other exciting wagering options to choose from, sides, totals, props, you name it. Read on for a preview of the series then head over to the LIVE ODDS page for the latest options.

New York is a power-laden veteran club that is patient as the dish and makes opposing pitchers feel they have to be perfect batter after batter. The additions of Mark Teixeira and Nick Swisher not only added power, but keep opposing teams from trying to stack pitching in their favor, since they are switch hitters. Alex Rodriguez is looking more comfortable for change in October and his presence in the lineup makes others see better pitches.

Rumors are circulating C.C. Sabathia is being kicked around to pitch three times if this series goes the limit. Though Sabathia’s concentration will wonder against lesser teams, he proven time and again to be “big time” on the various teams he’s played for in important games. Phil Hughes seems to have found his perfect role and is probably being groomed for when the best closer ever, Mariano Rivera retires. There has never been closer that pitches as well and even at age 39, he still breaks more bats than any reliever.

A strong case can be made A.J. Burnett is the Yankees best pitcher, based on “stuff”, yet it always doesn’t come with him to the mound. Of Burnett’s 34 starts this season, on eight separate occasions he was touched for five or more runs, proving command and over-anxiousness can overtake him. Andy Pettitte will start Game 3, with the Angles 38-17 against left-handers. Joba Chamberlain has fallen off the second half of the season and could be hero or goat for Yankee team trying to make Fall Classic for the first time since 2003. This is also new territory for manager Joe Girardi.

This is a different Angels’ team than the last few years, when they last played in ALCS in 2005. The “hack at everything” team has found a semblance of patience, thanks to the addition of Bobby Abreu, who showed even veteran hitters like Vladimir Guerrero, they can wait for a better pitch to swing at. This approach has made Chone Figgins more valuable as leadoff hitter. Kendry Morales has added much needed pop in the middle of the order. Howie Kendrick and Torri Hunter have been smokin’ the baseball for an extended period of time. No team puts more pressure on defenses with runners on base, with merry-go-round style.

It appears the Angels have the starting pitchers to match wits with New York. Game 1 starter John Lackey finally shook postseason blahs against Boston and Jered Weaver was the one dependable starter the Halos had early in the year when they were throwing out journeymen night after night due to injury. Game 2 starter Joe Saunders hasn’t lost since returning from DL on Aug.26 (7-0) and has not allowed more than three earned runs in those outings. Scott Kazmir will have a chance to prove why Los Angeles acquired.

When searching for weakness, the bullpen stands out Shaquille O’Neal among ordinary citizens. Brian Fuentes is the centerpiece of frustration, but it’s too late to turn back now. The setup men are a coin flip, with Kevin Jepsen and Darren Oliver the most trustworthy of leaky bunch. The biggest issue with the starting pitching is they have a contingent that would make four really good pitchers if they were No.3’s on most teams. That’s been a cause for postseason failures; a quality start might not be good enough in October. Vlad Guerrero deserves respect, nevertheless should he bat that high in the lineup with two RBI’s in last 19 postseason games? While Mike Scioscia is well regarded in baseball as a manager, he’s won as many titles as Charley Manuel and Bob Brenly, who won’t be going into the Hall of Fame as skippers.

Key Numbers- The Yankees and Angels split 10 games this season, with New York 3-1 at their new ball yard. Over the last three seasons the teams are 7-7 in the Bronx. On the season, the Yanks are frankly awesome. New York is domineering 59-24 at home and impressive 47-35 on the road. They dominated lefties with 37-18 record, whom they will face at least twice in this series. In games determined by two or more runs, New York is fantastic 83-43. With five scheduled night games, the Yankees are 70-36 under the lights. Don’t undersell the Angels, with 51-32 home record and 49-33 road mark. They too have crushed lefthanders with aforementioned record. The Halos are potent 34-22 as underdogs and as evidenced in three game sweep over Boston, no clubhouse is tighter, for a team that refuses to lose. Even after losing series to New York in late September, L.A. is still 11-4 in Anaheim vs the Yanks in last 15 contests.

MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 7/31-8/2
2009-07-31

Friday is trade deadline day. Saturday marks the first day of August. In the world of Major League Baseball, both are important on the annual calendar, meaning this weekend is a pivotal one in the sport. For the contenders who’ve made moves to acquire more talent, it’s go time for the last two months. For those who made themselves sellers, it’s time to develop young players while relegated to the role of spoiler. Of course, both types of teams will be in action over the next few days. Read on as we take a look at the action featuring teams with something still to play for, plus reveal some of the Top StatFox Power Trends available on the weekend schedule.

The National League features two premiere matchups on the schedule this weekend. In the first one, the suddenly hot Cubs will be hitting the road to take on Florida. Chicago comes off a 6-1 homestand that extended an overall recent surge of 13-4. That run has enabled the Cubbies to climb back into a tight battle with St. Louis atop the Central Division. Chicago has taken six of the last eight between these two teams after struggling prior. The Marlins have recovered from a disastrous 3-game home sweep at the hands of the Phillies a couple of weeks ago to get back in the wildcard hunt, just behind San Francisco. A couple of key trends will be tested in this series, since Florida is just 8-14 vs. N.L. Central clubs while Chicago has endured a season of struggles on the road, just 21-27 for -8.3 units.

The other key senior circuit series offers a potential divisional series preview, as the Phillies and Giants continue a 4-game set from San Francisco. It should be a great series for fans of dominant young starting pitchers, as both teams boast great rotations. In fact, the wildcard-leading Giants allow just 3.7 runs per game, nearly a half run better than anyone else in baseball. The Phillies meanwhile, don’t boast those kinds of numbers, but they just recently enhanced their rotation, and chances for a second straight pennant, by adding former Indians’ ace Cliff Lee to the fold. This also figures to be a great matchup since again, something will have to give. The Giants are the league’s best home team, while Philadelphia is the premiere road team in baseball.

In the American League, the tightest race is in the Central Division, where Detroit, Minnesota, and Chicago are separated by just three games. The Tigers lead the fray but will be the only team on the road this weekend. Does that give them a disadvantage? Perhaps not when you consider that they will be taking on Cleveland, who despite playing better of late, has been one of the most active sellers in the trade market. The Indians are clearly building for the future. Meanwhile, the Twins will be hosting the West-leading Angels, and the White Sox are taking on the East-leading Yankees. Both of those road teams are red-hot, so it could be said that Detroit actually does hold the scheduling edge over its closest competitors this weekend.

Another eye-catching series in the junior circuit pits Seattle at Texas. The Rangers continue to beat most experts’ preseason predictions by playing good solid baseball all-around. They have gotten far more production out of their starting pitching staff than ever expected, but are also hitting the ball in Ranger-like fashion. They are right on the heels of the Red Sox for the A.L. Wildcard spot and will look to continue an impressive stretch against divisional foes. Texas was 18-8 versus A.L. West clubs going into Thursday’s series opener.
