MLB Playoff Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Friends take the guesswork out of the equation and let a professional with nearly 40 years of MLB Postseason experience take your winnings to the next level.

The (109-55) Boston Red Sox finished with the best record in baseball but knew they were going to be in a dogfight if they faced their storied rivals of the AL East. After taking the first game of the best of five 5-4 as -165 HOME FAVORITES the series shifts to the Big Apple. The Red Sox/Yankees rivalry dates back to 1903 but has met only three times in the postseason, 1999, 2003, and 2004. Boston won the last which also resulted in a 2014 World Series title that ended the Curse of the Bambino.

The OVER is 3-0-1 in Boston last four games following a loss.
The UNDER is 5-2-1 the Red Sox last eight on Monday’s.
Boston is 2-7 in their last nine playoff games (ALDS/ALCS).
The Red Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 ALDS playoff road games.

The (102-63) winner of the 2018 American League wildcard game New York Yankees came back to even the series with a 6-2 road win in game two. Aaron Judge along with Gary Sanchez hit home runs while starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka did a masterful job on the mound. Manager Aaron Boone will hand the ball to Luis Severino (19-8) with a 3.39 era. The right-hander lasted four innings allowing two hit his last performance resulting in a 7-2 wildcard win over Oakland.

The Yankees are 23-4 in Severino’s last 27 starts in the Bronx.
The UNDER is 6-1 the Yankees last 7 ALDS home games.
The OVER is 4-1 the New York Yankees last five postseason home games.
The UNDER is 7-3-1 the Yankees last 11 ALDS games.

Monday’s Game time is 7:35 PM EST at the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx borough of New York, New York. The TBS Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has New York as a -180 home favorite. The total is eight runs for Monday’s contest.

The Boston Red Sox not only lost game two but the all-important home-field advantage. Manager Alex Cora will send right-hander Nathan Eovaldi who’s last road appearance against the Yankees resulted in a 3-2 road loss for Boston. Eovaldi also lost at home vs. The Yankees on September 29th giving up one hit and a run in two innings of work. Boston doesn’t have the best bullpen in baseball, but they rank sixth in strikeouts; however, they allow too many bases on balls which could force Cora to turn to a starter for relief duty.

The Red Sox have a potent offense which led Major League Baseball scoring 5.38 runs per game in the regular season; they do play in a hitter-friendly park when they’re at home. The 9.72 hits per game also were also the best in baseball from April to September.

The OVER is 3-1-1 Boston last five during game 3 of a series.
The OVER Over is also 3-1-1 in Eovaldi’s last 5 starts vs. American League East opponents.

October is a different animal and if the Red Sox want to advance they better start swinging the bat better. J.D. Martinez has three RBI’s with a homerun, but Mookie Betts and the rest of the Red Sox better get it going. Bovada.Lv, list the Boston Red Sox at +250 to win the 2018 MLB ALCS.

The Yankees are right where they want to be and with Aaron Judge swinging the bat with authority fans are starting to believe they’re on their way to the 2018 ALCS. As well as everything is going Boone is still concerned about the defense. Which makes to many errors and it could come back to haunt them against a hard-hitting Red Sox offense. However, New York has a bullpen that can flat out pitch led by David Robertson and the hard-throwing Aroldis Chapman who combined has allowed a hit with six strikeouts in six innings of work in games one and two.

The OVER is 7-1 in New York last eight vs. AL East opponents.
The OVER is 13-3 the Yankees last 16 games after a win.

New Yorkers can’t wait for game 3, there’s a buzz in Gotham, and a lot has to do with the way Judge is hitting the baseball. 2018 Free Agent acquisition Giancarlo Stanton is due for a breakout game, and the Red Sox know if they lost game-3 they’d be in trouble. The Bronx Bombers are healthy right now, but you never know in the rivalry; it’s made for television. Bovada.Lv, list the New York Yankees at +500 to win the 2018 MLB World Series Title.

Seattle Mariners are can do without Robinson Cano

Seattle Mariners are can do without Robinson Cano

Thursday, December 12th, 2013 was a momentous day for the Seattle Mariners.  While I was blowing out candles on a cake in Miami, they equalled the third-largest deal in Major League Baseball history by signing New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano to a 10-year $240 million contract. Then-M’s general manager Jack Zduriencik may have thought it wise to get the deal done before Friday the 13th. Unfortunately, he didn’t think to send me birthday wishes for my 50th, thereby failing to avoid cursing the deal.

Winning 2018 Baseball Picks

In the four since-completed seasons with Cano in the lineup, the club hasn’t improved noticeably, finishing third, fourth, second and third in the American League West. When you make a signing of that magnitude, you expect to win. Or you should.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018 turned out to be the second momentous day in the marriage between the Mariners and their high-priced second-sacker. Cano was suspended 80 days by Major League Baseball for a positive result to a drug test.

You wouldn’t imagine the Mariners would take the news positively. Not the fans, not Cano’s teammates, not manager Scott Servais or current GM Jerry Dipoto. While Cano had only hit four home runs on the season, he had contributed 24 rbi and 23 runs in 39 games, projecting him into the 90s for both over an entire season. His basic numbers as a Mariner suggest the team was faced with replacing 12 hr, 45 rbi and 40 runs. That isn’t a pleasing prospect.

Robinson Cano's numbers in his first four seasons as a Seattle Mariner.

The Mariners were their typical third in the AL West on May 14th, a game-and-a-half behind the Angels, with the World Series champion Houston Astros nestled in between. Seattle’s suddenly looked like another lost season. How could they stay close until Cano returned?

Only, they’ve gone far beyond staying close. After chasing Dallas Keuchel last night, the Mariners are in first place. In the first 20 games sans Cano, they are 15-5. That’s a .750 winning percentage. With Cano, they were 23-17, or .575.

Former Yankee teammate Mark Teixeira, now an ESPN analyst claimed he wasn’t surprised by the suspension.

Alex Rodriguez got popped by Biogenesis, and Melky [Cabrera, also with the Yankees for a time] got popped. They were best friends.

Cano accepted responsibility for the failed test although he claimed it was prescribed in the Dominican for a medical issue rather than to cheat the system. Nevertheless, it has to create a trust issue within the organisation. When he left New York, former hitting coach Kevin Long lamented his habit of not running to first on sure outs.

When you jog down the line, even if it doesn’t come into play 98% of the time, it creates a perception. But he just wouldn’t make that choice to run hard all the time.

Cano will be eligible to play again for the Mariners’ 121st game, on August 14th in Oakland, ten weeks from now, assuming the club don’t first send him down to the minors for a conditioning assignment. Will Scott Servais be eager to plug him right into the lineup if the Mariners are still rolling along atop the division? How could he ignore an elite power hitter? If the M’s begin to slide with Cano back in the clubhouse and the batting order, what then?

It’s difficult to sit a $240 million player. It’s even harder to trade him when he has a PED suspension on his record. Seattle managed to rid themselves of the original Alex Rodriguez before he went bad. Now, too late, they may have to divorce ARod’s protegé. That’s the Emerald City for you. It never rains but it pours.
