Throughout the season, I'll be posting my MLB tips in here for matches that I see as good value bets.

If you're crying out for a dabble on the outright market, look no further then NYY. It's their last season at Yankee Stadium and with them not winning a WS since 2000, they are long due a win.

Not only do their fans demands it, but also their owners and shareholders.

Winning is not an option for this team. You can get them on the outright @ 9's with the option to trade out when they trade much lower in the Summer.

The Boston Red Sox are a lay for certain. There's no way they'll win it again. Altough Big Papi will hopefully be his legendary-self.

Spring Training matches next week, which are equivalent to pre-season football matches over here, for those who don't know. Good for fun bets, but that's all imo. Total lottery and very frustrating.

Spring Training LIVE On NASN:

Minnesota vs NY Yankees - Wednesday, 5 March 6.00pm

LA Dodgers vs Boston - Thursday, 6 March 6.00pm

NY Mets vs Cleveland - Friday, 7 March 6.00pm

Washington vs Detroit - Tuesday, 18 March 5.00pm

For those unsure......

MLB.tv is worth getting as you can see every match, albeit on a 30-60 second delay.

$89.95 for the year which is about 50.

NASN on channel 417 is another must.

One last thing,if the Yankees are long due a WS win,what about the Cubbies ?
Arent they due ? I mean whats a 8 years compared to a 100 ?

Cubs don't have the expectation level.

Ryan Dumpster will blow more games with big leads in the 9th as he did last season I reckon. :D

Destroyed peoples bets last year.

Armando Benitez is another nightmare closer who cannot be trusted.

With regards to closers....

3 closers who cannot be trusted at all and might be worth laying their teams, when they enter are:

Joe Borowski of Cleveland

Ryan Dempster of Chicago

Armando Ben¿ez of Free agency.

Terrible closers in my opinion. Make sure you trade out of bets, even if they have a 3 or 4 run lead. They can easily load the bases, meaning one home run and youre screwed.

Heres some other dodgy closers, albeit to a lesser extent.

Billy Wagner of the Mets

Bobby Jenks of the White Sox

Closers who can be trusted

Johnathan Papelbon of Boston

Mariano Rivera of the Yankees

You feel safe when either of these 2 enter - although it has to be said, Rivera has been less safe the less 2 years, but still trustworthy imo.

you haven't a clue!

Mariano Rivera!

he lost more than he won!..he was hardly reliable last year!

do us all a favour and stick to bandy or something instead of filling this forum up with ya losing tips and clueless ideas!

your the guy that didnt know you could be offside from a corner!..your the guy that started celebrating the other night like you had a winner cos you escaped a big red on each side in the england cricket tie(you never knew that rule)till it was returned back you!...does us all a favour stick to the soccer forum!.and save yourself a few quid and more embarassment!

The anticipation of O'Dwyer's regular tipping has me all giddy although Cyanide's rebuttal that Rivera was hardly reliable last year because "he lost more than he won!" is a classic, too. FYI, check out the career W-L record of the all-time saves leaders.

This has the making of NA forum's own "nocko" thread!!

Good stuff. Will this thread be around in 2009?

Not sure that the yanks are a cracking bet tbh. I guess a lot depends on the highly rated Joba and Hughes and how they fit in the rotation.

I certainly dont agree with your reasons as to why they will win either lol. Although i agree they will prob trade lower.

Yankees worth a dabble because 'it's their last year at YS and they've not won it since 2000'?

Fook, on this logic, My Mets are a shoe-in then!!!!!!!!!! :0

A heads up O'Dwyer. Dempster is in the mix to start for the Cubs. It will be Kerry Wood ro Carlos Marmol in the 9th. Not that I'm a moderator, but would be nice if you could try to keep your nonsense on this thread rather than all over the forum.

I forgot to include another top closer who can be trusted.

Trevor Hoffman of San Diego. If San Diego are winning with 4/5 outs required, it's more or less game over.

Along with Rivera and Papelbon, he'll get it done on a regular basis.

Booby Jenks is not a dodgy closer, he's one of the best in the AL.

I thought that Dempster had been relieved of his duties as closer and was going to try for a spot in the rotation. Cubs not sure who will be their closer this year.

he's a strategy for baseball for all you insomniacs.



step 1 only place bets on baseball when the top pitcher for a team is at the mound.

step 2 for the first couple of innings back and lay or lay and back then walk away


Basically if a top pitcher is on the mound for a team lay the team who is batting then after 3 outs without any runs back the team back. Then do the same for the 2nd innings then leave alone.

It's great when 2 teams meet who are similar and they play thier best pitchers so you have a face off. you can lay and back and back and lay on both teams for 2 inns then leave it alone.


sometimes a run or a couple of runs come early but not very often. the runs normally come when thier 2nd or 3 string pitchers are at the mound.

the best strategy is when there are day games on and the sun is shining is to lay the team with the tallest bullpen, as the sun lowers it gets in their eyes more and they throw a lot of wild pitches.

Tip 1

Nothing special, but the result is certain.

Washington to beat Detroit. They are currently 8-0 up and counting - after 6.5 Innings.

1.01 is free money as they say - but you might get more.

You may laugh, but it's a start. Tyson never faced Riddick Bowe in his first fight.

Kaiseress, I wish you'd just naff off. You have to be the most despicable poster on this entire site and that says a lot. No doubt I've enticed you into carrying on posting in every thread I make - and believe me, you post in every thread I make.

But will ignore you in future. You're just such a negative in my use of this site. If there was an ignore button you'd be gone in a shot, but that is wishful thinking on my part.
