    LEADING OFF: Giants need hand in bullpen, Felix in the Bronx
    June 20, 2018



    A look at what's happening around the majors today:


    NEED A HAND


    The Giants are looking for answers at the back of the bullpen after closer Hunter Strickland broke his hand Monday night punching a door in frustration. Strickland blew a save in a 5-4 loss to Miami, then cost himself six to eight weeks with his postgame outburst. Manager Bruce Bochy said Strickland had shown maturity and progress keeping his emotions in check since a fight last year with Nationals star Bryce Harper, leading Bochy to feel ''thoroughly disappointed'' by this injury. Sam Dyson and Tony Watson will be called upon for closing duties, with one getting most of the opportunities, though Bochy didn't reveal which one that would be. The manager doesn't consider Mark Melancon - signed to a $62 million, four-year deal before last season to work the ninth - ready for the role after a series of injuries.


    KING OF THE BRONX


    Felix Hernandez (6-6, 5.44 ERA) pitches for Seattle at Yankee Stadium in the middle game of a series between AL playoff contenders. King Felix is 7-2 with a 2.00 ERA over 11 career starts in the Bronx, including 6-1 with a 1.41 ERA in nine outings at the current Yankee Stadium. The 32-year-old righty, a six-time All-Star and the 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, is 10-7 with a 3.04 ERA and four complete games in 21 starts against New York overall. Jonathan Loaisiga (1-0) gets the ball for the Yankees after throwing five scoreless innings to win his major league debut vs. Tampa Bay last Friday.


    SUPER KLUBER


    Corey Kluber tries to become the major league's first 11-game winner this season when Cleveland hosts the White Sox. Kluber (10-3, 2.24) won five straight decisions before losing to Minnesota last time out, giving up two homers and four runs in a 6-3 defeat. Chicago starter Reynaldo Lopez (2-4, 3.35) is looking to solve the reigning AL Central champs after they tagged him for seven runs in 2 2/3 innings on May 30.


    PITCHING IN


    Anibal Sanchez hopes to give the upstart Braves a little more late-career magic. The 34-year-old Sanchez (3-0, 1.93) has been excellent for Atlanta, most recently throwing seven scoreless innings against San Diego. Sanchez has been a surprise contributor after posting a 6.09 ERA over his final two seasons in Detroit and signing with the Braves on a minor league contract in March. He'll face Blue Jays lefty J.A. Happ (8-3, 3.48) in Toronto in the afternoon.


    ROLLING ROSS


    Ross Stripling (6-1, 1.76) tries to win his seventh consecutive start when the Dodgers complete a three-game set against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Stripling joined LA's rotation amid a bevy of injuries and has been consistently on point, walking just two batters over his past seven starts (43 innings). Chicago will counter with Jon Lester (8-2, 2.28).

    Wednesday's Diamond Notes
    Kevin Rogers

    Hottest team:
    Astros (12-1 last 13)


    In spite of Houston having its 12-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday by Tampa Bay, the Astros are still the hottest squad in the game. Houston was listed as a favorite of at least -200 for the fifth straight game but couldn’t produce enough offense in a 2-1 defeat on Tuesday, while scoring below four runs for the first time in 13 games. The Astros also saw their eight-game OVER streak come to an end as Justin Verlander was denied his 10th win of the season.


    Houston still has an opportunity to post another lengthy winning streak when it concludes its series with Tampa Bay, followed by home series against Kansas City and Toronto. Charlie Morton heads to the mound in Wednesday’s rubber match, seeking his ninth win of the season for Houston. The right-hander is coming off a 7-3 road victory over Kansas City his last time out, as the Astros own a 4-1 mark when Morton takes the mound as a favorite of -200 or higher.

    Coldest team:
    Royals (0-8 last eight)


    Kansas City is riding an eight-game losing streak following Tuesday’s 4-1 loss to Texas. What’s even more amazing is that seven of those defeats have come at home, including four to last-place squads like the Rangers and Reds. If it wasn’t for Baltimore’s disastrous campaign at 20-51, Kansas City would own the worst record in baseball, as the Royals have been outscored on this homestand, 46-14.


    The Royals look to avoid another home sweep as Jakob Junis heads to the hill against the Rangers. Junis hasn’t won a start in his last four appearances, while getting lit up in his past two outings against Oakland and Houston by allowing 12 earned runs and 17 hits in 10.2 innings of work. To make matters worse, Kansas City has compiled a dreadful 3-16 record in Game 3’s this season, including a 1-11 mark off a loss.

    Hottest pitcher:
    Brent Suter, Brewers (7-4, 4.30 ERA)


    Milwaukee snapped a three-game skid on Tuesday by holding off Pittsburgh, 3-2. Suter has been on fire over the last month as the Brewers have won five of his previous six starts, while coming off back-to-back blowouts of the Phillies. Suter delivered a season-high seven innings and allowed one run in a 13-2 home rout of Philadelphia last Friday, but it was only the second time in his career that he tossed seven innings. The Brewers won two of Suter’s three starts against the Pirates last season, including a 3-0 shutout last September.

    Coldest pitcher:
    Andrew Cashner, Orioles (2-8, 4.98 ERA)


    Baltimore built a 5-1 lead over rival Washington on Tuesday only to see that advantage disappear in a 9-7 setback. The Orioles dropped their fourth game in four tries to the Nationals this season, while stumbling to 9-27 on the road. Cashner will try to turn around his recent misfortune as the Orioles are winless in his past three starts, while scoring a total of three runs in those contests. The right-hander hasn’t pitched too poorly by putting together nearly identical stat-lines against the Blue Jays and Yankees as he allowed nine hits and three earned runs in six innings each time. Also noteworthy is the 6-0 UNDER streak Cashner is riding in his past six trips to the mound.

    Biggest OVER run:
    Phillies (9-2 last 11)


    Philadelphia has been involved in a pair of wild games with St. Louis so far in its three-game series. The Phillies squandered a 4-0 lead on Monday only to rally past the Cardinals in 10 innings, 6-5 and cash the OVER of 8 ˝. Philadelphia couldn’t hold onto another two-run advantage on Tuesday as St. Louis came back for a 7-6 win, as the Phillies have allowed 21 runs in the last three games. Jake Arrieta hits the hill this afternoon in the rubber match, looking for a better performance after getting tagged for eight runs in 3.1 innings of a 13-2 setback at Milwaukee.

    Biggest UNDER run:
    Yankees (14-0 last 14)


    (Double-dose of Yankees alert) The Bronx Bombers unloaded on the Mariners last night, 7-2, thanks to four home runs. However, New York maintained its incredible UNDER run as the total of 9 ˝ was threatened, but never busted. The pitching staff has allowed eight runs in the past five games, while the lineup reached the seven-run mark for the first time in 12 games. The last time the Yankees cashed an OVER came back on June 4 at Detroit in the first game of a doubleheader.

    Matchup to watch:
    Mariners vs. Yankees


    The Yankees and Red Sox continue to be a two-horse race atop the American League East and will be for the next three months. New York sits alone atop the division after Tuesday’s victory over Seattle and Boston’s loss at Minnesota. The Bronx Bombers improved to 15-4 over the last 19 games, while Giancarlo Stanton was one of four Yankees to go deep in Tuesday’s win.


    The Mariners are facing their third straight potential playoff opponent after a 5-2 homestand against the Angels and Red Sox. Seattle suffered its second loss in the last seven road series openers, but remained two games behind Houston in the AL West after the Astros were tripped up by the Rays.


    Felix Hernandez tries to fix his road woes as the Seattle right-hander owns a bloated 7.71 ERA away from Safeco Field this season. Hernandez hasn’t had much luck with the Yankees the last few seasons the Mariners have lost three of his past four starts against New York.


    Rookie Jonathan Loaisiga makes his second career start for New York, as he tossed five scoreless innings in his Major League debut against Tampa Bay last Friday in a 5-0 shutout. The Yankees look to continue their recent ownership of the Mariners as they have won seven of the past nine meetings dating back to 2016.

    Betcha didn’t know:
    The Rockies held off the Mets on Tuesday, 10-8 to snap an eight-game losing streak at Coors Field. Colorado has won two consecutive home games against an opponent only twice this season, coming against San Francisco in late May and San Diego in late April.

    Biggest public favorite:
    Indians (-290) vs. White Sox

    Biggest public underdog:
    Braves (+130) at Blue Jays

    Biggest line move:
    Reds (-120 to -128) vs. Tigers

    Thursday’s quiz
    Where did the Washington Nationals call home before moving to our nation’s capital?


    Wednesday’s quiz
    Shaquille O’Neal finished his NBA career with the Boston Celtics, in 2011.

    Tuesday’s quiz

    Former President George W Bush used to own the Texas Rangers.


    *********************


    Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud……


    13) OK, so minor leagues and major leagues use different baseballs. Why?


    Brewers’ TV guy Brian Anderson was saying Tuesday night how some minor league pitchers carry major league baseballs around with them, and when they throw in between starts, they use the major league baseballs, so when they get called up, the adjustment is minimal.


    12) Was told recently that it looks like the Oakland A’s AAA affiliate will be moving to the new ballpark in Las Vegas next season (actually in Summerlin). Mets bought the Syracuse Chiefs, so their AAA team is moving there, Word has it the Nationals’ AAA team will be moving to Nashville.


    11) Looks like the CFL will be adding a 10th team soon, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Having an odd number of teams in a league has to be a logistical nightmare.


    10) On ESPN Sunday night, Alex Rodriguez was talking about former Seattle teammate Edgar Martinez, about how Martinez would do drills to improve his vision before games- he claimed it helped him see the ball better. Edgar was a hell of a hitter, so the drills must’ve worked


    9) Mets had only three healthy outfielders, so they’re playing 1B Dom Smith in LF for the time being. Smith is not America’s finest athlete; playing the spacious LF in Denver ain’t easy.


    8) When you blow the lead in the 9th inning, don’t compound your mistake by punching the door or wall in the clubhouse and breaking your hand. Thats what Giants’ reliever Hunter Strickland did Monday night, now he is out at least two months.


    7) St Louis Cardinals haven’t made the playoffs since 2015; last time they missed playoffs three years in a row was 1997-99.


    6) Jaren Jackson and Mo Bamba have told the Memphis Grizzlies, who have the #4 pick, not to draft them. This is a big problem for the NBA; there are some teams none of these guys want to play for. Everyone wants to be on the Warriors, Rockets or play in LA. Hell, Kyrie Irving didn’t want to be Lebron’s teammate.


    When the Spurs were winning their titles, most of their players were foreign-born. Not a coincidence, either.


    5) Former NFL referee Jeff Triplette is joining ESPN as a rules analyst. Triplette is the ref who once threw a penalty flag, hit a Browns’ player in the eye and cost the guy three years of his career with the damage done to his eye.


    4) Kentucky lands graduate transfer Reid Travis from Stanford. He scored 19 ppg and grabbed 8.7 rebounds a game LY. Wildcats have a bunch of freshmen coming in, as always; two of them are kids who should be high school seniors but re-classified to the Class of 2018.


    3) The son of former Rams’ CB LeRoy Irvin will play college football at Washington; he will wear number 29 in honor of the great running back Eric Dickerson.


    2) A’s 12, Padres 4— Oakland hit back/back homers in consecutive innings for the first time since 1997, when Canseco-McGwire/Stairs-Canseco did it against Milwaukee.


    Ironically, Matt Stairs is now San Diego’s hitting coach.


    1) You can’t make this stuff up: Cubs’ closer Brandon Morrow went on the DL when he hurt his back putting on a pair of pants. I’m 58 but am still pretty nimble when getting dressed.

    LEADING OFF: Pair of aces pitching in Bronx, Wacha gets MRI
    June 21, 2018



    A look at what's happening around the majors today:


    BIG ARMS IN THE BRONX


    With slugger Giancarlo Stanton heating up at the plate, the major league-leading Yankees (49-22) go for a three-game sweep of visiting Seattle. Luis Severino (10-2, 2.09 ERA) pitches for New York against lefty James Paxton (6-1, 3.44), who is 5-0 with a 2.55 ERA since the beginning of May - a nine-start span that includes a no-hitter in Toronto. The Mariners have lost three straight for the first time since April 17-19 against the World Series champion Astros.


    STRANGE TO SEE


    Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (10-3, 2.06 ERA) tries to avoid his first three-game losing streak since August 2015 when the Nationals host lowly Baltimore. He'll hope to get some help on offense from slumping slugger Bryce Harper, who went 0 for 4 in a rain-delayed 3-0 loss Wednesday night, dropping his batting average to .209. Washington manager Dave Martinez said Harper has been working hard with batting coach Kevin Long. ''He's going to hit. I know he's going to carry us for a month or two or for whatever,'' Martinez said.


    DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT


    Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha (8-2, 3.20 ERA) is scheduled for an MRI after exiting Wednesday's start with a left oblique strain. ''Feeling a little bit better,'' he said following the game. ''I'm hoping for the best.'' Carlos Martinez (3-3, 2.73) pitches for St. Louis in the opener of a four-game set at Milwaukee. He is 6-4 with a 1.95 ERA against the Brewers. Slumping outfielder Ryan Braun is expected to rejoin the Brewers after the team sent him to Los Angeles on Wednesday for treatment on his achy right thumb. The six-time All-Star is hitting just .236 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs.


    SEEKING HIS FIRST WIN


    Giants ace Madison Bumgarner (0-2, 4.67 ERA) pitches at home against last-place San Diego, which has dropped four straight. Bumgarner missed the first two months of the season with a broken pinkie. He has lost four in a row to the Padres, who counter with Tyson Ross (5-4, 3.51). Meanwhile, San Francisco right-hander Jeff Samardzija (shoulder tightness) is set to make his second rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento.


    READY TO GO


    White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia (right hamstring strain) could return to the lineup against Oakland in the opener of a four-game series. Garcia was hitting .333 with two home runs and seven RBIs during a six-game rehab stint with Triple-A Charlotte. He batted .330 with 18 homers and 80 RBIs last season, making his first All-Star team.


    COMING UP EMPTY


    Boston will be looking for a couple of clutch hits against the Minnesota Twins in the finale of its road trip. The Red Sox were 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position Wednesday and are 2 for 22 in the first two games of the series. They stranded 18 runners in those two games and have lost four of five overall. Rick Porcello (8-3, 3.70 ERA) starts against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson (2-4, 3.27), who has allowed only five runs over his last four starts spanning 26 2/3 innings.

    Thursday's Best Bet

    Thursday MLB Best Bet
    Toronto Blue Jays vs. Los Angeles Angels



    The Toronto Blue Jays are out in California to begin a seven-game road trip against a couple of AL West teams and it begins with a four-game set against the L.A. Angels tonight. These two teams have already played three times (in Toronto) this year and it was L.A. who took two of three. That was back in late-May though when things were still rolling for L.A. as they've started to fall back towards the .500 mark since then.


    Poor play and injuries have been a big reason why the Angels have stumbled the past month, but they do have their most consistent pitcher in Tyler Skaggs on the hill tonight. Can he right this ship and help L.A. improve on their 3-7 SU mark over their last 10 games?

    Odds: Toronto (+140) vs L.A. (-155); Total set at 7.5



    Skaggs got the start in one of those two earlier Angels wins over Toronto and he was actually squared off against tonight's starter Aaron Sanchez in that game as well. Neither guy lasted longer than five innings that day and at the end of the 5th it was actually 3-0 for the Blue Jays. Toronto led the entire game until the 9th inning when their bullpen gave up four runs and watched L.A. turn a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead, as that was when Toronto had just recently lost closer Roberto Osuna to off-field issues and were trying to piece together who would take over that role.


    You could say it was a crushing loss for Toronto as they went on to lose nine of their next 12 games after that and it's probably the point when the Blue Jays knew they'd end up being “sellers” at this year's trade deadline rather than competing for a return trip to the playoffs.


    But Toronto's clubhouse is still full of guys who love to compete and chances are nobody in that room has forgotten about that loss, especially Aaron Sanchez. That bullpen blowup cost him a win for his record, and for a guy who's just 3-5 SU on the year, he could use all the W's he could get.


    The good news for Blue Jays fans is the fact that Sanchez has really turned things around of late with a 2.95 ERA over his last three starts, and while he's only been on record for one victory, Toronto has won all three of those Sanchez starts. Considering they are decent underdogs on the road tonight, a brief run like that can't be ignored.


    The problem for Toronto is the fact that Skaggs has been on fire of late as he's got a 0.45 ERA over his last three outings and the Angels have won all three of those as well. Unlike Sanchez though, Skaggs has lasted long enough and left with leads in those outings to get all three victories on his individual record. Without a doubt this run by Skaggs is why the Angels are laying the chalk that they are and still getting upwards of 80%+ of the action tonight according to VegasInsider.com. But you can count me as one of those bettors that will be going the other way here.


    For one, I do like to flip the result when we get pitching rematches between non-division teams because they are rather rare and the pitcher on the losing side of the first meeting tends to not forget that result. They know they only get one more crack at said team that year and while Sanchez did nothing wrong in that first meeting with Skaggs and the Angels, he definitely wants the result to be different this time around.


    Secondly, for as good as Skaggs has been recently (and all year), the majority of his bad starts have come at home. In six home starts this year for Skaggs, the Angels have a 2-4 SU record with the only two times Skaggs has gone less than five innings being included in those home starts as well.


    With the Angels being listed as -163, -175, -122, and -104 in those four home losses, you'd have added some nice units to your bankroll fading Skaggs in his own yard, and Toronto does enter this game T10 in the majors in scoring runs against southpaws (96).


    Finally, we can't forget about this team-wide slump these Angels are in right now and that in and of itself isn't a bad reason to be fading the Angels these days. L.A. is searching for anything to bring back the great play we saw from them the first two months of the year, and a 5-16 SU run after a day off does them no favors tonight either. And although Toronto is just 1-8 SU in their last nine on the road overall, they have won four of five entering play tonight and love when Sanchez opens up a series as they are 12-5 SU when he does so.


    Add it all up and I believe Toronto wins this game more than the 41.6% of the time a +140 price tag suggests, as this downward slide the Angels are in is not something I really want to step in front of, especially when they are still priced like the 10+ games over .500 team they were the first two months of the year.




    Best Bet: Toronto (+140)

    Toronto Blue Jays At Los Angeles Angels


    The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are getting one of the best seasons in the history of Major League Baseball from superstar Mike Trout. It would be a shame if it went to waste. Despite Trout’s excellence, the Angels are only four games above .500 and hope to improve moving forward to make a run at either the American League West or a Wild Card.


    They have a winnable game this week when they host the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto has a losing record and has not performed very well on the road this year so they will be the underdogs.


    Trout has been on an incredible streak of getting on base recently and the Blue Jays’ pitchers hope he doesn’t eat them alive. These are the kind of games the Angels need to win to become postseason-bound in MLB gambling.


    The MLB Baseball contest will be held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The game will take place on Thursday at 10:07 p.m. ET. The game will be nationally televised on MLB Network.


    We'll have MLB baseball odds at BookMaker.eu available for every game of the 2018 MLB season.


    Odds Analysis


    The oddsmakers have pegged Anaheim as the -154 favorite to capture this contest, while Toronto comes in at +139 on the moneyline. The scoring total has been placed at 7.5 runs, with the “over” the slight favorite.

    Probable Pitchers



    The Blue Jays are set to send Aaron Sanchez to the hill. He is 3-5 this season with a 4.35 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Sanchez was very good in 2015 and 2016 and he is only 25 years old, but his ERA often outperformed his peripherals and everything is more in line this season. He is a decent starter but is not on an ace trajectory like some thought at one point.


    The Angels will counter with left-hander Tyler Skaggs, who is 6-4 on the year with a 2.81 ERA. Skaggs has an impressive strikeout rate and the peripheral numbers are good as well. He has dealt with injuries in the past but is an impressive hurler when healthy. The Blue Jays could have their hands full against him.

    Player To Watch



    Trout -- The Angels’ versatile MVP is making his case as the best baseball player of all-time. This year has been spectacular, as Trout is batting .335 with 23 homers, 38 RBIs, 60 runs scored and 13 stolen bases. He has an OPS+ of 213 and has already accumulated 6.3 WAR.


    Trout does it all in the batter’s box, on the basepaths and in the field. He has no peer but the Angels have failed for years to put enough talent around him. He is going to continue to put up mind-boggling numbers provided he stays healthy, and shortstop Andrelton Simmons has given the team a nice lift this season, but too many players aren’t pulling their weight.


    With Albert Pujols, Kole Calhoun and others struggling, the Angels could be hard-pressed to make the playoffs even with the best player in the majors patrolling center field for them every day.


    Free MLB ATS Picks


    The Angels should be heavier favorites in this one. Their pitcher is better and they are playing at home. The Blue Jays are not going to have enough firepower to keep up. Sanchez will pitch OK but Skaggs should outduel him in MLB betting lines.


    If the 1.5-run spread gives decent odds, take the Angels there as they should do enough to win by multiple runs in this affair. The scoring total seems right on but the “over” could be the play.


    MLB ATS Pick: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 5, Toronto Blue Jays 3

    STREAKING AND SLUMPING STARTING PITCHERS

    Streaking:
    Tyson Ross, San Diego Padres (5-4, 3.51 ERA, $704)



    Ross is the perfect value pitcher; as a member of the Padres' starting rotation, he won't often be favored to win, but is good enough to pull out the victory at often-terrific prices. The Padres had won six straight Ross starts prior to his previous outing and went into five of those games as the underdog – making it no surprise that he's near the top of the earnings list at the moment.


    Ross is in tough against Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Thursday, but at a healthy +135 and facing a Giants lineup that isn't exactly the New York Yankees, you could do worse in this spot.

    Slumping:
    Kyle Hendricks, Chicago Cubs (5-6, 3.55 ERA, $-1,074)



    Ah, the wonder of betting odds. Compare Hendricks' basic stats to Ross' and there is precious little difference. But when you pitch for the Cubs, you are almost always going to be the fave – and in that regard, Hendricks has been a major disappointment. Chicago has dropped five of his previous seven starts overall, with three of those coming with the Cubs at -185 or better.


    Hendricks is at -164 for today's encounter with Matt Harvey and the Cincinnati Reds; while Chicago is in a good spot here, there are just too many superior plays on the board.

    Friday’s 6-pack


    — Dodgers’ pitcher Ross Stripling is also a licensed stock broker.


    — Gleyber Torres passed on the Home Run Derby; they’re having trouble getting guys.


    — Marlins’ P Dan Straily got suspended five games for drilling Buster Posey.


    — It is possible that Brooks Koepka lost the trophy he won for winning the US Open. He says he doesn’t know where it is.


    — Mike Trout had a stretch this week where he reached base 29 of 36 times, the best 8-game stretch of on-base %age since Stan Musial in 1953.


    — In their first 74 games, Kansas City Royals started 11 different players in the #2 spot in the batting order. Not good.


    Tweet of the Day
    “I’ve been pleasantly surprised the last three weeks what a good teammate he is, how smart he is, how he sees the game. He should be playing in the National Football League, and I believe he will when he gets through with us.”
    Hamilton Tiger-Cats coach June Jones III, talking about Johnny Manziel


    Friday’s quiz
    Which NBA team drafted Chris Webber?


    Thursday’s quiz
    Washington Nationals were the Montreal Expos before moving to our nation’a capital.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Shaquille O’Neal finished his NBA career with the Boston Celtics, in 2011.


    ****************************


    Friday’s Den: Running Diary of the 1st round of the NBA Draft…….


    7:25: Before the NBA Draft, some NFL news. Bucs’ QB James Winston will be suspended for three games, for something that happened with an Uber drive in Arizona two years ago.


    Buccaneers open at New Orleans, then the Eagles/Steelers come to Tampa Bay. Not great to play those teams without your starting QB.


    Winston had character-related issues in college, too. This isn’t good for him or the Bucs or the NFL or coach Dirk Koetter, who needs a good season to keep his job.


    7:30: NBA Draft is in Brooklyn; they need to do what the NHL/NFL do now and move the draft around the country, get out of New York City.


    Commissioner Adam Silver is one of my heroes; a tall, bald man with glasses who has a great job and does it very well, but stop with the opening statement. Drafts get over-hyped; need to see teams picking players as soon as possible.


    7:35: Jay Bilas has already questioned Deandre Ayton’s “motor” which means he doesn’t try hard all the time. Good Lord, that bothers me, if you spend your #1 pick on someone who is often lethargic. Effort should never be an issue.


    Anyway, the Phoenix Suns take Ayton, whose Arizona team got plastered by Buffalo in the first round of the NCAA tournament. I picked Arizona, but I’m not bitter at all.


    ESPN has Chauncey Billups (good) and Bilas (annoying) as its analysts, Rece Davis (very good) as its host. Billups compares Ayton to Joel Embiid. Davis points out that Ayton is the 9th straight college freshman to be the first pick in the draft.


    7:44: Marvin Bagley III goes #2 to Sacramento. Bilas downplays Bagley’s defensive abilities, but Duke played a 2-3 zone almost all of last season. Go figure. Billups compares Bagley to Chris Bosh. Bagley is happy to be in Sacramento, which is refreshing.


    Duke had a player picked in the top 3 in the last five NBA Drafts, which is a record.


    NBA saved me lot of money by putting four patches on the right side of each team’s hats which they’re selling on the Interweb. I’m not a fan of a lot of junk on the hats I buy, so this saves me a decent amount of money, because the front of the hats are nice.


    7:48: Worst part of the NBA Draft is they don’t announce the trades as they happen, which is stupid and misleading. Atlanta Hawks take Luka Doncic but ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says he is being traded to Dallas, with the Hawks winding up with Trae Young.


    7:55: Memphis takes Jaren Jackson Jr, whose mother is Director of Player Ops for the WNBA. At first, Jackson said he didn’t want to play for Memphis, but I’m sure he won’t mind being paid by Memphis. Billups compares him to Joakim Noah.


    Jackson’s dad played 13 years in the NBA; his first eight years in the NBA, he played for a different team every year.


    8:00: Dallas takes Trae Young, who will be traded to Atlanta. ESPN ruined Young’s season at Oklahoma by over-hyping him a sickening amount and putting a huge target on his back. The Hawks get a 2019 first-round pick from Dallas in addition to the Young/Doncic swap.


    8:08: Orlando takes Mo Bamba with the #6 pick; he has a 7-foot-10 wingspan, the longest wingspan ever recorded at the NBA Combine. Bilas says he needs to get a lot stronger.


    They showed video recently of Bamba making ton of 3-pointers in a workout, but he shot 27.5% behind the arc at Texas last year, so we’ll see. The NBA 3-point shot is longer than college.


    NHL Draft is Friday; it’ll be different than this draft. Not better, not worse. Different.


    8:13: Bulls won their fewest games in 14 years this year; they take Wendell Carter, a center from Duke. Carter could’ve gone to Harvard had he wanted to; he is a good shooter, but again, Duke played a ton of 2-3 zone last year, so will defense be an issue, especially on pick/roll? Billups compares him to Carlos Boozer.


    8:18: Cavaliers take Alabama PG Collin Sexton, who Billups compares to Eric Bledsoe. Kid is highly competitive, but Cleveland might be a sad place to watch basketball for a few years, with Lebron James expected to skip town.


    8:24: Knicks missed the playoffs the last five years; why does ESPN have to show Spike Lee before their draft pick? New York takes Kevin Knox, another Kentucky player. John Calipari’s recruiting has to get easier and easier with every year all his guys go in the 1st round.


    Knox played quarterback in high school, which hints at leadership qualities.


    8:30— 76ers take Mikal Bridges, a 4-year player who played on two national title teams with Villanova. He is 6-7 wth a 7-2 wingspan; Billups compares him to Nicolas Batum of the Hornets.


    Bridges’ mother is VP of Human Resources with the 76ers.


    8:37: Charlotte Hornets take a Canadian PG and another Kentucky player, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who reminds Billups of Michael Carter-Williams, but the kid will be traded to the Clippers. I’d rather live in LA than Charlotte anyway, but no one asked me.


    He shot 40.4% on the arc and 82% on the foul line, both good things, and he didn’t start early last season- he earned his way into the starting lineup.


    ESPN has an international scouting guy named Mike Schmitz on; he says Gilgeous-Alexander was the best guard in the draft.


    8:43: Clippers draft Miles Bridges, who will be traded to the Hornets. Bridges would’ve been a high draft pick LY; Billups compares him to Shawn Marion, a pretty big compliment.


    Clippers gave Charlotte two future 2nd-round picks to swap the 11th and 12th picks.


    8:48: University of Buffalo’s social media people posted this on Twitter:


    “Congrats to @DeandreAyton on being selected #1 overall in the #NBADraft by the @Suns! We hope your @NBA career starts better than your college one ended”


    Wow. Ayton’s college career ended with an ugly loss to Buffalo.


    8:50: NBA Lottery started in 1985; Boston College’s Jerome Robinson is the Eagles’ first player ever taken in the lottery— Clippers took him at #13. John Bagley was the 12th pick in the ’82 Draft, taken by Cleveland.


    Tonight is June 21; on July 6, the NBA Summer League begins in Las Vegas, so these kids who get drafted will be fighting for jobs in 16 short days, against other kids who didn’t get drafted and veterans who’ve played in the NBA before, or are fighting to get there. Very competitive.


    8:54: Denver owner Stan Kroenke’s son Josh started for Missouri’s hoop team 15 or so years ago; if they don’t take Michael Porter Jr, who the hell will?


    8:58: Nuggets draft Porter; their trainer should ask for a raise. Billups compares him to Kevin Durant, which is a total insult to Durant. Porter played three college games, and one of them was for two whole minutes. He is more suspect than prospect.


    In totally unrelated news, Flava Flav threw out the first pitch at the Richmond Flying Squirrels game tonight. Squirrels are the AA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. They had 6,117 fans in Richmond, for a game that was shortened by rain.


    9:06: Washington Wizards take Oregon alum Troy Brown, who I think is a Las Vegas kid and is considered a versatile player. Billups compares him to Andre Iguodala.


    There is a guy sitting next to Arizona coach Sean Miller who has the shiniest bald head I’ve ever seen. As a bald man myself, just don’t have the energy to do that day after day, keep my head totally slick. Plus I’d look like Mr Potato Head if I did that, so no thanks.


    9:14: Zhaire Smith played one year at Texas Tech; the Suns drafted him, but he’s getting traded to the 76ers for Mikal Bridges, which puts the kibosh on Mrs Bridges’ happiness from 45 minutes ago. Smith wasn’t an ESPN top 100 recruit coming out of high school- it is rare for a player like that to be drafted so high.


    9:22: Milwaukee Bucks take Donte DiVincenzo, who started only 10 of Villanova’s 40 games LY, but he played starter’s minutes (29.7 mpg), scoring 13.4 ppg, making 40.1% on the arc, in his only season of college ball.


    He scored 31 points in the national championship game, but anytime I hear a kid raised his draft stock in the Combine, it bothers me. Billups compares him to Tyler Johnson.


    Random fact; over half the players in the NBA (53%) have played in the G-League.


    Talk about draft/trades in the NBA; on June 24, 1998, Dirk Nowitzki was traded by Bucks with Pat Garrity to the Mavericks for Robert Traylor. How did that work out?


    9:29: San Antonio Spurs drafted G Lonnie Walker from Miami, FL, who has had knee issues and also has ballhandling/defensive issues, but he can score. Spurs’ coaches will develop him. Not many kids who go to high school in Reading, PA go to college in Miami.


    9:34: Atlanta Hawks take a kid from the Albany area, Kevin Huerter from Maryland. Huerter’s dad and brother play/played for Siena College; Kevin is an excellent shooter; good luck to the young man. I was surprised when he came out of school, but shooters are always in demand.


    People have too much money: LeBron James’ jersey from Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals just closed on @NBAAUCTIONS to a winning bid of $100,322. Oy.


    9:42: Minnesota takes Josh Okogie, a guard from Georgia Tech. Bilas says his man asset is that “…..he plays his tail off all the time.” No wingspan, no upside, he just tries hard. There are worse things someone can say about you.


    Budweiser just ran a commercial with John Starks, the old Knicks’ guard who talks about being undrafted, then fighting to make it in the NBA. Damn good commercial.


    Starks played 13 years in the NBA, scored over 10,800 points.


    9:46: Utah drafts Grayson Allen; Jazz are coached by Duke alum Quin Snyder. Now I have to watch all of Utah’s summer league games to see if someone kicks Allen’s ass. He got away with being a dirty player in college because Coach K sheltered him, but now he is out on his own. We’ll see how that works out.


    9:51: Chicago Bulls take Chandler Hutchison from Boise State. He is the first Boise player drafted since 1999, which should help their recruiting. Billups compares him to Kyle Kuzma.


    OK, I have Madison Bumgarner on my fantasy baseball team and he’s pitching in a few minutes, so time to grab some food and watch that game. Hope you enjoyed this…….

    LEADING OFF: Herrera on home run roll, D-backs bashing Bucs
    June 21, 2018



    A look at what's happening around the majors Friday:


    PACKING A PUNCH


    Odubel Herrera tries to homer in his fifth straight game when the Phillies begin a three-game series at Washington. ''What he's doing is special,'' Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said. ''It's elite.'' Herrera is batting .419 (13 for 31) with two doubles, five homers and eight RBIs in the last seven games. Seven of his 12 homers have given the Phillies a lead. ''He's a different breed,'' pitcher Jake Arrieta said. ''When he gets hot, he's fun to watch.''


    BASHING THE BUCS


    Jon Jay and the Diamondbacks look to keep feasting on Pirates pitching when the teams square off in Pittsburgh again. Arizona has scored 35 runs in going 3-1 against the Pirates this season. Jay doubled in each of the first two innings Thursday night, when the Diamondbacks cruised to a 9-3 victory. The center fielder is hitting .340 in 13 games since being acquired from Kansas City in a June 6 trade. Ivan Nova (4-5, 4.42 ERA) will try to slow down Arizona - the right-hander has won both starts with a 1.54 ERA since being activated from the disabled list June 10. He missed two weeks with a sprained right ring finger. Patrick Corbin (6-5, 3.48) gets the ball for the Diamondbacks. The lefty is 1-2 with a 5.90 ERA in five career starts against the Pirates.


    ICHI-WHO?


    Keep an eye on the Mariners' dugout at Fenway Park for a mysterious, mustachioed visitor when Seattle opens a series in Boston. Associated Press photographer Bill Kostround spotted Ichiro Suzuki hiding on Seattle's bench Thursday at Yankee Stadium wearing a fake mustache, sunglasses and a hoodie. Officially, Suzuki isn't allowed to be in the dugout during games under Major League Baseball rules after moving to the team's front office in early May. But the 44-year-old outfielder channeled former Mets manager Bobby Valentine to sneak his way onto the bench - Valentine donned a fake mustache and sunglasses and returned to the dugout after being ejected from a game in 1999. ''He was perfect. I never would have known it was him,'' Valentine texted to the AP.


    DOUBLE DIP


    The Oakland Athletics and Chicago White Sox are set to play a single-admission doubleheader after Thursday night's scheduled game in the Windy City was postponed because of rain. It was the 40th postponement in the majors this season, already one more than all of last year. James Shields (2-8, 4.63 ERA) and Lucas Giolito (4-7, 7.19) will start for Chicago, which has lost seven straight to match a season high and is a season-low 25 games under .500. Oakland will send Sean Manaea (6-6, 3.56) and Chris Bassitt (0-2, 2.45) to the mound.

    Giants' Strickland apologizes after temper lands him on DL
    June 21, 2018



    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco Giants closer Hunter Strickland apologized to his team, fans, and said he'd consider anger management counseling three days after injuring his hand punching a door in frustration after a blown save against Miami.


    Strickland is expected to be out six to eight weeks after breaking the pinkie on his pitching hand Monday. Sam Dyson and Tony Watson will be called upon for closing duties.


    Strickland has had several outbursts on a national stage.


    The 29-year-old right hander jawed with Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez during Game 2 of the World Series.


    Last season he threw at Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper three years after he homered off Strickland in the 2014 NLDS.


    ''I think that obviously my anger in these moments have gotten the best of me and caused stupid decisions, so I don't think I should be this angry person,'' Strickland said. ''I think focused is the better word. We do have to be focused and locked in, focused on getting those outs.''


    Strickland said he planned to address teammates later in the day.


    ''I'm responsible,'' Strickland said. ''I'm not here to blame anybody on anything and I think that's the way it should be.''


    Strickland had surgery Tuesday, in which two pins were put in his injured finger. He'll have more X-rays two weeks, when he hopes to have the pins taken out.


    ''That's out of my control,'' Strickland said. ''I'll just do what I can, work hard and let the doctors decide the rest.''

    Cardinals put Wacha on DL, recall Gant
    June 21, 2018



    MILWAUKEE (AP) Cardinals right-handed pitcher Michael Wacha returned to St. Louis on Thursday for an MRI.


    The Cardinals placed Wacha on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain before Thursday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. They recalled right-hander John Gant from Triple-A Memphis.


    ''Everyone has injuries,'' Cardinals general manager Michael Girsch said. ''We've just got to deal with it.''


    Wacha accompanied the team as it flew to Milwaukee from Philadelphia, but then he continued on to St. Louis for the medical scan.


    ''We have not gotten an MRI yet,'' Girsch said. ''Hope to have it tonight.''


    Wacha, who leads the team in wins (8-2) and strikeouts (71) in 15 starts with a 3.20 ERA, left Wednesday's start against the Philadelphia Phillies with the injury. He surrendered a two-run homer to Cesar Hernandez in the fourth inning and pitched to one more batter before he was replaced by Mike Mayers. The Cardinals lost 4-3.


    It's the third time this season that Gant has been recalled. He is 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA in seven appearances, including three starts for the Cardinals this year.


    Gant could be a candidate for a start on Monday.


    ''Gant will be available in the bullpen the next few days,'' Girsch said. ''We still feel we have good options in the rotation. They're all capable of going the rest of the way. Obviously, we'd like to get guys back and have more depth.''


    *************************


    D-Backs P Miller set to be activated
    June 21, 2018



    PITTSBURGH (AP) Shelby Miller is scheduled to return to the Arizona Diamondbacks' rotation Monday, 14 months after the right-hander underwent Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery.


    Miller will face the Marlins in Miami. He rejoined the NL West-leading Diamondbacks before their game Thursday night against the Pirates after making four rehab starts in the minor leagues.


    ''I'm pretty excited but I'm assuming the first (start) back won't be perfect,'' Miller said. ''There are going to be times where I'm going to have to bear down and get through some stuff. I've talked to people (who have had the surgery) and they say command is the last thing to come back.''


    The 27-year-old Miller pitched a combined 19 1/3 innings in his rehab starts, two with Double-A Jackson and two with Single-A Visalia. He allowed 10 runs and 20 hits while striking out 28 and walking six.


    A 15-game winner in 2013 with the St. Louis Cardinals and an All-Star in 2015 with the Atlanta Braves, Miller was injured in his fourth start last season. He has a 5-14 record and 5.78 ERA in 24 starts since the Diamondbacks acquired him from the Braves in a trade prior to the 2016 season.


    ''I definitely have some thing to prove over here,'' Miller said.


    Miller will take the rotation spot of rookie right-hander Matt Koch, who was optioned to Triple-A Reno. Koch was 5-4 with a 4.40 ERA in 13 games, including 12 stats.


    Right-handed reliever Jake Barrett was recalled from Reno. He has appeared in three games for the Diamondbacks this season.


    **************************


    Marlins' Straily suspended 5 games
    June 21, 2018



    NEW YORK (AP) Miami pitcher Dan Straily has been suspended for five games for intentionally throwing a pitch at San Francisco's Buster Posey while warnings were in place for both teams.


    Major League Baseball also suspended Marlins manager Don Mattingly for one game Thursday and fined Straily and Mattingly undisclosed amounts.


    On Tuesday night in the Marlins' 6-3 loss in San Francisco, Straily and Mattingly were automatically ejected in the second inning after Straily hit Posey on the left arm with a pitch. Both sides had been warned by plate umpire Andy Fletcher the previous inning after Giants rookie starter Dereck Rodriguez beaned Lewis Brinson as tempers flared for the second straight game. Posey had homered in the first inning.

    Mariners place Nicasio, Altavillla on DL
    June 21, 2018



    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) The Seattle Mariners have placed right-handers Juan Nicasio and Dan Altavilla on the 10-day disabled list, recalled infielder Daniel Vogelbach, and purchased the contract of right-hander Mike Morin from Triple-A Tacoma.


    Nicasio has swelling in his right knee, while Altavilla is sidelined by a right elbow UCL sprain.


    Mariners manager Scott Servais says Thursday he hates ''to lose either one of those guys, but we've got to get them healthy, get them right.''


    Nicasio gave up four earned runs without getting an out June 6 at Houston after not allowing a run in his previous eight games.


    Altavilla, 3-2 with 2.61 ERA over 22 appearances, was previously on the DL May 1-12 with right AC joint inflammation. He will be examined by team doctors in Seattle.


    Morin went 2-1 with three saves and a 3.24 ERA in 20 games for Tacoma.


    Vogelbach, in his third stint with the Mariners this season, hit .200 with two homers and five RBIs and in 22 earlier games.
