Milwaukee Brewers: The Future is Now by Max - 06/30/2005
The Brewers have been a bottom feeder in baseball for well over a decade. They have tried numerous plots to get out of this never-ending tailspin but few of them have worked. In 1997, they switched leagues hoping to regenerate a lackluster fan base by bringing in new teams to County Stadium. That worked for a short time before fans saw how bad this team actually was. Then they went out and signed big free agent names from Colorado that had inflated numbers from their tenure at Coors Field. As you could image this was a disaster and kept the Brewers at the bottom of the division for the next five years.

Jason Schmidt -- MLB Pitcher Betting Article by Max - 06/23/2005
Over the past three seasons, Jason Schmidt has been one of the two best pitchers in the National League. During this time, he has 55 victories against only 23 losses. His E.R.A. has been around the 3.00 mark and he has struck out more batters than innings pitched. This year appeared to be no exception. However, the first three months have certainly been a roller-coaster ride for him and for gamblers. The following will detail his amazing journey.

2005 College World Series Preview by Max - 06/16/2005
The field of eight teams was set last weekend for the 2005 College World Series. This year's field features seven newcomers, as only Texas was able to punch its ticket for a return trip. The field is also very familiar with one another, as only four conferences will be represented. This includes three entries from the Big XII Conference. The following will examine the eight teams in the 2005 College World Series field analyzing the strengths and weakness of each participant.

NL East Race Should Provide For Exciting Summer by Robert Ferringo - 06/07/2005
Right about now in Major League Baseball, there's about as much stability atop the National League East as there is in a South American government. Over the course of 48 hours this past weekend, Florida went from first-to-worst, dropping three straight games to the Washington Nationals (aka the Montreal Ex-patriots), to go from the penthouse to the basement. Currently all five NL East teams are within a game-and-a-half of one another, and the log-jam is setting up what could be a very exciting summer.

Are The 2005 Texas Rangers For Real? by Max - 06/03/2005
The Texas Rangers are playing the best baseball of anyone in the league and are looking to reach a double-digit win streak. This team has never looked back since dropping Alex Rodriguez and it appears that they will be able to stay in contention all the way into October.

Minnesota at Toronto MLB series preview -- 05/27/05 by Max - 05/27/05
Two teams with winning records square off Friday night, opening a three-game series at Rogers Centre. This is a big series for both teams, as neither wants a bad showing facing the possibility of dropping further behind in the standing. Both teams will showcase their aces and former Cy Young winners. I look for a very competitive series with numerous close and low scoring games.

2005 Houston Astros: Lost in Translation by Max - 05/25/2005
The 2005 Houston Astros seem to be going down the same path as last season when they got off to a torrid start, but the similarities probably will end there. Last season they made a key trade to jumpstart their lackluster season. Along with acquiring Carlos Beltran, Houston made a managerial change firing Jimy Williams and hiring Phil Garner from the suburbs. After the team got acquainted with its new pieces, the 'Stros took off and wound up winning the Wild Card over their division rival Chicago Cubs.

Doc's Sports Weekend Series Preview - Florida at San Diego by Max - 05/13/2005
A great pitching series opens up at Petco Park May 13. The Marlins continue to win games based on their starting pitchers and I have to wonder if that will catch up with them later in the season. This team is treading water in the bullpen with Todd Jones as their closer. The Padres are starting to get it together after a slow start to the season. This team enters this series at 19-16 and has one of the best bullpens in the National League.

Doc's Weekend Series Preview -- Oakland at New York by Max - 05/06/2005
Two disappointing teams square off at the Stadium in the Bronx. The Yankees come into this series with a 12-17 record and have all sorts of problems right now. They are just 7-10 when playing under their home lights. Oakland has fared a little better but is still two games under the .500 mark after being swept by Texas during the week. Doc's expects New York to enter each game as a hefty favorite but feels there will be some value in selecting Oakland.

Bullpen Stats and Bullpen Ratings -- Betting the National League by Max - 05/04/2005
When betting baseball the most important thing to consider is the starting pitchers. This is the major force behind the oddsmakers when they establish a line on the game. If either starting pitcher has to be scratched, the line on the game may change dramatically or the game may be taken off the board altogether. Most books offer refunds if there is a pitching change in order to protect themselves from a major line adjustment.

Steroids In Baseball Editorial by Jeremy "Fasttalker" Bjornberg
Steroids in baseball has become possibly the hottest sports topic this year. Is it really important? Are steroids the reason for the home run increases or is it the expansion pitching and smaller parks? Should players be punished or have records taken away without any hard evidence? Should a player be chastised for using a supplement that either wasn't illegal at the time or they weren't aware of?

Doc's MLB Predictions -- Full Season O/Us by Max
The Major League Baseball season is right around the corner and we here at Doc's could not be happier. Baseball is one of our favorite sports to handicap because of the old adage, "just win the game." Pointspreads are nowhere to be found in baseball and because of that the unexpected backdoor cover is nonexistent. A team cannot intercept a ball on the goal line and return it for a touchdown.

When to use WHIP in Baseball Handicapping by Max Gundlach
When handicapping a baseball game, a bettor can look through a variety of statistics. The first thing that jumps out at a bettor is either a player's batting average or a pitcher's E.R.A. The public has great knowledge of these statistics and can determine a platform of a player's success by looking at them. Read more about WHIP stats in baseball.
Baseball Betting Allows Bettor Chance For Profits by Jeremy Martin
While baseball is as American as apple pie and Chevrolet, it has never caught on with bettors in the U.S. the way football and basketball have. Baseball is the No. 3 sport for most bookmakers coming in just above hockey. Still considered one of the big three sports in the minds of general sports fans, it hasn't managed to capture the interest of the masses of recreational bettors that the sportsbooks covet.
