It has more of an up/down break than a sweeping action. He throws it in the high 80's and it has been clocked at 90 on occasions.He has a change up that's not fully developed yet. From what I've read, when all 3 pitches are working for him, he's basically unhittable.I probably won't bet the game. I definitely wouldn't advise betting on the Twins. Berrios might own the Sox batters, but he's in a 2 game funk.Any Boston fans starting to worry about Chris Sale's injury? Moncada and Kopech were the return of that trade. Personally, I thought when Sale went on the DL it was more of a way to rest the guy before the playoffs.Enjoy the Game

 

 I would give the edge to Barrios because he has already pitched against MLB hitters and maintains a lower whip than Kopech's which is all minors and likely to go higher against MLB hitting.

 

WHIP and winning percentage are highly correlated.

 

Barrios at 1.13 whip:

Kopech minor whip 1.21 average:

I "think" you got a fair shake on a +290 dog!!!

If I would've laid the massive chalk on Cleveland and only won by 1 run....it would be a value ripoff in my view.

Plus...losing a player on an injury on a game that is no longer a game would be a double bummer.

Who cares about the playoffs...There is 40+ games left in the regular season to make $$

 

True...but dont get that excitement over Boston betting in the playoffs if the past means anything.

I honestly would have let him continue in that game. He can throw 130 and he hadn’t let up a run. Anyways, tomorrow is a new day.  Gl

 

I had the Cubs but you WERE on the RIGHT side of the bet. With a lead of 3 runs you should win that bet about 999x out of 1000.

 

Cubs got lucky for sure but I knew when they brought in Madsen we might have a chance.

 

For one thing....as a Cubs batter with the pitcher hitting the previous 2 batters ....YOU SHOULD NOT even be swinging the bat unless you have 2 strikes on you.

Truly a game-changing idea, congrats again.

No trick plays have EVER worked in any sport?

I gotta bud but some time trick base running DOES work.

 

I remember many moons ago when Kirby Puckett SHOULD'VE held up at 3rd in a WS game.....but somehow he must have had

prior knowledge of the CF has a tendency to throw a lackadaisical toss back to 2nd when the CF expects the baserunner to stay at 3rd.

 

Puckett timed the lob throw and was off towards home plate...not even a throw.

You would have to save this all season for something like a WS game or whatever because doing this EVERY night teams will never believe it. It's a once in a year trick or decade trick.

it would be probably a high failure rate but if it is a game ender then....try it!!

 

Bottom of the 9th, tie game guy on 2nd:

 

the ball is singled into center or right  field....guy should score depending if he has any speed and outfielder's arm.

 

But.....I have seen this MANY times, the guy rounding 3rd base looks into the outfield(for some reason?).....then this would be a read by the catcher who KNOWS FOR FACT the run will score. Catcher pops up (when the base runner is looking back into the outfield) and charges him like its going to be a run down.

 

The catcher would have to either not show the ball(like it's in his mitt) or fake pretend throw hard so the runner cant get good sight whether the ball is there or not.

If the runner takes the bait and retreats towards third the ball would have been cut off or thrown to 3rd direct and then he WOULD be in a run down.

I think the ML is crazy at +195 CHW considering the Sox have already shown they can beat them as they did in the last 2 games.

 

Just imagine(I know this is a team sport and Shields is pitching) if this were a boxing line. Would you see a +195 for a fighter who BEAT the favorite the last 2 times???

 

Shields ERA is high but if you pull out the beatdowns that Houston gave him it falls considerably. Minn touched him up once too tho.

 

But...the Sox won with Giolito the other night and now we have Shields who is better than Giolito in many stats and STILL???? a +195 dog in CHW?

I like the Sox here....might be wrong but it is a value bet worth taking IMHO..

I thought he should have had some fun like putting his glove almost covering his eyes and shaking off every signal from the catcher.smiley_3

Lights out...

 

I think it would be great if like the last pre-season game of the year no team could use actual pitchers to pitch.

Every 3rd shot he draws a foul but he wouldn't have been half the player he is today in 90's.  Jordan when he hit his peak was better than anyone the game had ever seen.If your daughter or sons life was on the line, who would you take going into the 4th quarter between Lebron and Durant?I bet you everything you would choose Durant and that says it all. Jordan will also be number one and not even Lebron choosing his own teammates and coaches will ever change that.

 

There is no better argument for "who's the best" than who got double teamed more?

It's either Shaq or MJ IMO. You then have to argue who had the better team so they couldnt DT them.

Excellent discussion here:
