Top 10 Reasons Why MLB Sucks

So how does pitching get back to where it was..Let’s start a couple more expansion teams..that will fix it. He is the anti-christ of the purist movement. League expansion is a cluster of uncanny proportions. Pitching is relatively the same. Maybe the other 9 reasons the MLB sucks has something to do with it!

#8 No Salary Cap

This is a problem. I love the game. Maybe its boring, maybe there are no role models, maybe they have no place to play? For whatever reason there has been a lost link, and it shows. Baseball has a unique dynamic that is referred to as chemistry, and it isn’t for sale!

#5 Boring Commentary

The T.V. He put up Hall of Fame numbers while in Seattle. The double switch, the bunt, and the art of the pitcher moving a runner over.

#9 Too Many Tampered Seasons

This blemish dates all the way back to the Sox throwing the World Series.

#3 George Steinbrenner

Don’t get me started on this figure. But without a doubt he wanted to be a Red, even though they were horrible. Even the struggling Reds lost Ken Griffey Jr., no he is not a franchise player for Cincinnati. For a purist of the game the DH opened a window for a single tool baseball player to make it to the bigs. The Yankees payroll is out of control! Lucky for us the remaining fans that talent and money doesn’t always win championships. The purity of the sport is not represented at the Major League level. The only thing that makes it bearable for a fan is they are in third place, and they haven’t had a World Series monopoly. They also forgot that it took away some fundamental aspects of managing. But somewhere between being a kid that loves the game and being an adult who gets paid to play the game a transformation happens. There are fewer African-American playing the game of baseball today then in the 70’s. There isn’t a whole lot more coaches can do to teach players to throw 100 mph. But no the franchise players are as dead as the suicide squeeze in the MLB. Hitters have developed, even without the use of human growth hormones, the art of hitting a round ball with a round stick squarely has become a science. And the small teams get hit the hardest..these teams survive by calling up the next great hope from AA or AAA to fill a gap. This is the shoot’em up Nintendo generation here that we are trying to interest in our beloved sport. This of course helps prepare them for free agency. Too much controversey for the fair weather fan, they are probably Nascar fans now. Here are my top reasons why…

It all goes to say, baseball has lost the interest of the African-American community. You can find it the dictionary, but don’t look for it MLB clubhouses. I know the revenue sharing scam that MLB has put into place to hush up the small teams enough for them to keep a star of two, but this is out of control what these players make. It’s a joke that MLB pulled in order to do away with having pitchers go to the plate and flail out the ball in crucial parts of the game. Ole’ George will do whatever it takes to win because he loses so grasiously. They give the poor kid a cap and a prayer and send him out there to compete. The small market teams will never hold onto a franchise player, and this hurts the fanbase. Baseball hasn’t been able to appeal to elite African-American atheletes. Your best 9 against my best 9, everybody hits!

#4 Free Agency and the Death of the Franchise Player

Free agency is a curse! This has destroyed the franchise player. ratings are falling because people would rather watch people drive around in a circle at high rates of speed then listen to another has-been drooling all over the microphone about baseball. Where did these types of pitchers go? The intimidators, not on roids –I might add –where are they in the league. MLB has been slow to move on this, but some initiatives are starting to funnel money back into developing solid inner city youth baseball programs. He has publicity stunts that take the focus off the game, and puts on a show for our young adoring fans about the urgency to win, and gives them a seminar on the art of whining about losing. The head of the Yankee player monopoly will pout until he wins another World Series. I like the commentary, but it isn’t exciting television. To me that is a player that should get to stay wherever he wants, and the MLB market should be to a point that some salary could be eatin’ by the Reds to ensure the Hall of Famer goes out exactly as he wanted to go. Now we have records that are going to have undeniable question marks beside them. Pitching is usually something you have that is innate and polished, hitting can be developed and is so more effectively in all the ametuer ranks of baseball. The problems are many for this little pickle the MLB has put itself in. Contemporary craziness is Pete Rose betting on baseball, strikes, and now the “roid rage.” There are just too many factors to list! It just well…sucks! The game has been tarnished in so many ways. . The free agent market paired with large market clubs will snuff out any such chances of restoring that to baseball. Too many prospects are being forced up too early. I am a teacher of the game at many different levels. The already thin pitching talent being spread across the league to play in empty stadiums.

#6 Pitching

Now that Nolan and the Goose have hung up their cleats who is left to make these lumber lugging neanderthals look retarded at the plate. At least Jeff Gordon’s helmet size didn’t grow two sizes in a single season.

Counting Down the Downfall of Baseball

I am a baseball fan first and foremost. Or heaven forbid, my favorite argument, a picher that might be able to hit (Babe Ruth ring a bell).

#1 Loss of the Inner City Development

Just when you thought I had nothing intelligent to say: The main reason that Major League Baseball is below average is because the inner cities do not produce baseball players like they have in the past. It let’s good hitter loose empasis on defense, and it takes away from the original nature of the game. These types of players survive their MLB bootcamp with Kansas City or the Reds and then after those teams can no longer afford them they have them well groomed for the “big money franchises.” The rich get richer, the poor keep calling up rookies!

#2 The Designated Hitter

The designated hitter was devised in 1979 by the American League to up attendance and run production…blah..blah..blah. Granted there are some hard nosed athletes which could be considered baseball purist still around, but the Mark Graces of the World are few and far between.

#7 No Parity in the League

Parity is defined as:equality, as in amount, status, or character. With no salary cap Major League Baseball has let a whiny bunch of babies be the face of the organization. Spice it up a little bit, if Golf can up their ratings due to Tiger and a few dicy commentators..what is MLB or the broadcast networks doing to change it up?

#10-The players are overpaid. This is what happens without a salary cap

How To Bet on MLB Baseball

During the offseason, the regular season, the pennant races, and the postseason, sports bettors can wager on who will win the next World Series, league pennants, and division titles.

Odds can change daily in MLB futures betting with current performances, injuries, and personnel moves playing key roles in where the sportsbooks set the lines.

Handicapping small favorites and underdogs, particularly home underdogs, while watching out for good pitchers on bad teams, can go a long way in helping you steadily build your bankroll.

BETTING MLB TOTALS

MLB totals betting allows you to wager on the total number of runs that will be scored by both teams in a game. However, there’s a price attached to wagering on a moneyline favorite, which will always pay less than a winning bet on an underdog.

Boston +1.5 -140

New York 8.5u +110

The above game line means a bet on the favored Yankees costs $200 to win $100. Conversely, a Red Sox victory would win $170 with just a $100 wager.

With even the best teams typically losing about 40% of their regular season games, regularly siding with big favorites can be a risky proposition for novice sports betting fans.

Boston 8.5o -130. A successful MLB betting strategy takes into account the performance of starting pitchers and bullpens, team home/away records and head-to-head records, and what to expect from each team’s offense.

New York -200

Boston +170

For example, let’s say the New York Yankees are hosting the Boston Red Sox:

New York -1.5 +110

And baseball lines are available daily, allowing both novice and hardcore sports betting fans to get in on the action with moneylines, totals, runlines, and futures.

BETTING THE MLB MONEYLINE

Betting on the moneyline in a baseball game is as simple as picking an outright winner. Oddsmakers establish a betting line representing the total number of runs, with the sports bettor wagering either OVER or UNDER that number.

During the summer months baseball takes center stage, offering sports bettors a variety of unique wagering opportunities. Moneyline odds can also be attached to the line, as such:

In the above example, the total is set at 8.5 runs but the OVER is favored, requiring a $130 wager to win $100.

BETTING THE MLB RUNLINE

The MLB runline is a 1.5-run spread on a game, as seen in this example:

While the Yankees may be -200 moneyline favorites to defeat the Red Sox, their odds of winning by 1.5 or more runs could be dramatically longer, and may even make them underdogs, while the Red Sox could lose the game by a run but pay off as a favorite.

BETTING MLB FUTURES

Baseball futures betting is available all year long

Can Cancer be Cured Naturally? Proof That Foods Can Fight Cancer and Even Eliminate it Completely!

Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Amazingly, this shows that a highly carcinigenic cancer-promoting toxin is rendered essentially harmless…. their counterparts, – those rats fed only 5% ANIMAL PROTEIN DIET, developed ZERO CANCER 100% of the time!

This phenonemon was first discoved by scientist in India, and successfully replicated by professor Colin T Campbell, author of The China Study…along with many others who have confirmed these findings.

Consider the following experiment:. (5% of calories)….NONE GET CANCER, and NONE die of cancer!!.

In countries with low intake of animal protein, we see far less cancer. Colin Campbell, PhD, is the project director of the China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project (the China Study), a 20-year study of nutrition and health.

ALL THESE RATS HAVE BEEN INFLICTED WITH A DEADLY CARCINOGEN…

In fact they found that by this means, they were able “turn cancer on and off like a light switch” (Quote)

Some ask whether food has any effect on cancer risk.

(some are even doctors!)

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight-Loss and Long-Term Health

WHY ARE WE TOLD THAT DIET HAS LITTLE EFFECT ON CANCER?

Surely if you were a rat, you would choose to be in the second group!!!

By T. when this foodstuff is eaten in much smaller amount… It is only rising as they become wealthier and adopt similar eating habits to those in the West.

Answer: ANIMAL PROTEIN.

Now consider that Americans consume far more animal protein that any other country on Earth…and also have a cancer epidemic…

Unbeleivably, they found that in some parts of China, cancer rates were 100 times higher in some parts than in other parts!! (That’s 10,000% higher!) How could this be? What does this prove?

“[These] findings from the most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease are challenging much of American dietary dogma.” –The New York Times

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TOLD OF THIS AMAZING EXPERIMENT? WHY NOT???

i.e All survive the deadly cancer causing aflatoxin.

Rats given a specific carcinogen, (aflatixin) and then fed a 20% ANIMAL PROTEIN DIET, will develop cancer 100% of the time.

Meanwhile… He is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University. (20% of calories) they ALL GET CANCER and later die of cancer.

But… Campbell.

When this foodstuff is eaten in larger amount… except when a high animal protein diet is consumed!

The China Study is described as epic, because it involved a truly vast area, and importantly, 87% of the population are of the same ethnic group, (the Han people) which eliminates the complicating factors experienced when diverse genetic groups are involved.

THE CHINA STUDY reveals startling evidence which shows that:

At the heart of this hugely important book you will find the incontrivertable truth about the effect of food and nutrition on cancer, and other diseases. In more than 40 years of research he has received more than 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers. If you have never read this book, you will be forever in the dark about food and its association with disease.

Many of the answers are given in The China Study.

A COMMON FOODSTUFF IS FED TO 2 GROUPS OF RATS…

Don’t you think there might be a connection?

WHY HAS THIS BREAKTHROUGH KNOWLEDGE BEEN COVERED UP?

So what is this mysterious common foodstuff?
