Re: MLB Futures

Read some interesting stats about Santana and the effect of moving to the NL could do to his numbers.

Since 2001, of all the pitchers that
- made the move from the AL to NL
- started at least 10 games in the seasons before and after the move
- ranked in the MLB's top 25 in ERA at least once

there were 23 such pitchers thah had their collective ERA drop from 4.71 to 3.83 and an increase in strikeouts of 8%. The general consensus is obviously that with the NL not having a DH in the lineup they inflate the pitchers' records somewhat.

Santana's career interleague numbers as a starter to date look like this:

Code:
	        Games	W/L	ERA	WHIP
v AL Teams	133	68-31	3.02	1.02
v NL Teams	16	10-3	2.16	0.83
Realistically he could achieve a 20+ win, 2.50 ERA and 250K season this season.

Santana to have most wins - $8.00
Santana to be ERA champion - $8.00
Santana to have most strikeouts - $6.00

Re: MLB Futures

I just have this feeling that the Mets win the NL this year as last year was a disgrace to the organisation. I'm considering a big wager on them to win the NL. Just haven't figured how much to wager.

Nice stats, were did you find them and are those props from Pinnacle? Good Luck with the wages.
Can't wait for the season to start, love watching it on the big flat screen with a couple of cold one's and a bet.

I was wondering why my centrebet balance was more than it was from a couple of days ago

Won on Santana being ERA champion, lost on the other 2.

His stats this season

ERA - 2.53 (1)
Wins - 16 (14)
K's - 206 (4)

Re: MLB Futures

Santana lived up to what he was supposed to be in the 2nd half of the season. The only pitcher that the Mets could rely on. If only they could get Liriano from the Twins. They would be well ahead of the pack next season. Any chance that it would happen, next to 0. As for my futures, i don't think my free $75 on the Angels is going to come through now.
