    There is no line for Angels vs Royals?????

    What are the bookies scared of?

    ACE Ventura ready to deal?

    Trout, Pujols, Hamilton, Kendrick all sucked last night...

    will the suck fest continue?

    Still on overnight limits though

    That's a very good line for the Angels....so I will be laying off of this game. I honestly thought, with Shoemaker on the bump and the public's love of the home team and the 'bounce-back' team in the playoffs, that the line would have opened at -185 or higher. I was going to get all over KC (again)....but alas, thus line is unbettable for me.

    my opinion on this game is that Ace Ventura will have to go atleast 6 innings tonight in order for the Royals to have a chance to win...

    do you guys think Ventura is capable of going deep into the game?

    Shoemaker is nasty and usually goes deep into games but the Angels bats were awful last night.

    Hamilton should be benched. Pujols and Trout both had embarrasing performances...

    5dimes has strangely made the Royals the favorite to win this series despite making them the dog tonight

    With Ventura's shaky bullpen appearance and the fact he's a rookie, I think the pressure might be a little much for him. Throw in Shoemaker's oblique injury and I think the only way to look is towards the over. Wait for a 7.

    ??

    Why is that strange at all? They are up 1-0.....even if they lose this game they still have the home advantage in a 3 game series. For them not to be favoured the disparity between these two teams would have to be WAY bigger.

    As I was typing this post early sharp money hit the angels a couple of times....limits are open now so looks like they may have opened a tad low on the Angels, we'll see whether it comes back the other way.Capture1.jpg

    First, KC is looking for every starter to go 6 innings, 7 is a plus if you can then go straight to Davis and Holland. Ned Yost will manage as poorly as possibly but with his bullpen (assuming he uses them and not starters) it's hard to screw that up with the big arms they have. I almost feel like Ned Yost managing a game is worth .01 off a line but I digress. I want to know what goes through your head sac bunting to second to straight steal third in the most crucial game of the season.

    Venture has made huge strides this year and is now a pretty damn good pitcher. Peripheral stats back up what we've seen this year...GB rate close to 50%....not too much difference from ERA to xFIP so he hasn't been lucky. Only weakness is his walks but pretty standard with the power arms these days, lotta Ks and walks. Still a decent K/BB ratio though. LA Lineup may not have looked good last night but is far superior and I wouldn't stake much on a few bad ABs last night.
