Free Online Baseball Handicapping Notes - By Doc's Sports
Arizona at Colorado (July 30-Aug. 1)
The Diamondbacks are well on their way to 100 losses, and Colorado has not fared much better going just 44-57 (as of this writing). Last weekend, Colorado went into Arizona and beat them three straight times. This included a victory against the Big Unit (Randy Johnson) who had dominated Colorado over his career. Speaking of Randy Johnson, it looks like he may have made his final start with the Diamondbacks. The Yankees are in hot pursuit of him and as the saying goes, "Whatever George wants, George get."
Arizona is only 1-13 since the All-Star break and we see no reason for them to take a step forward. This is a golden opportunity for Colorado to put them deeper in the cellar of the National League West Division. The Rockies are finally healthy with the return of Larry Walker and Preston Wilson and look for a strong finish to build for next year.
Expect the Rockies to pound an Arizona bullpen that is very overworked, injured, and poor. In their last 10 games played, the Diamondback starters have an E.R.A of nearly 6.00. This team is going to play prospects to build toward the future and will lose Luis Gonzalez to season ending injury next week.
Colorado will sweep this series and don't be afraid to go against Randy Johnson if he makes his scheduled start Friday night. He may be pitching not the get hurt and could be on a plane to New York the very next day. Rockies all the way!
Anaheim at Minnesota (August 3,4,5)
The Twins are finally playing up to their potential, winning 9 out of their last 10 games. They are on top of the American League Central after sweeping the Chicago White Sox at Comisky Park last week.
The Angels are in third place in the American League West and cannot seem to get over the hump that is Texas.
The Angles are in the middle of the pack because of their health; this has allowed Oakland and Texas to remain ahead of them. Anaheim does score a lot of runs, but their pitchers give up their fair share as well. This does not bode well since they are going against a Twins pitching staff that posses an American League E.R.A. low of 3.89 over the last 10 games.
With the return of Shannon Stewart, the Twins are at full strength with their offense and it has showed coming off a sweep of the Chi Sox and increasing the division lead to 4 games. The Metro dome is always a decided home advantage especially to team that is unfamiliar with the complex. The Halos are making their first trip of the season to the dome and we expect them to leave it without a win. Play the Twins and watch your pocketbook grow.
