Interleage Finale – Subway Series
While many argue that Interleague play is a waste of time, this is a weekend that would counter that argument. Personally, I’m not a fan of Inter League play. I mean, who really wants to watch the hapless Indians play the pathetic Giants? But this weekend is what makes interleague play worthwhile. We have several series with some juice this weekend. Starting in New York, we have the Subway series between the Mets and Yankees which gets started with a day night double header in two different ball parks. We have the Red Line series, also called the Cross Town Classic between the Cubs and Chisox as the Chisox try to avenge last weeks sweep. Lastly we have the Freeway series between the Angels and Dodgers which goes at 10:40 pm est. In my opinion, Interleague play should be kept to the rivalries.
I’ve got 2 solid plays going tonight as Premium plays which makes it tough to come up with anything more than a lean on the rest of the card. So rather than look at any one Game, I’ll take a look at a few that might be worth a closer look. Let’s start with the Reds at Indians. Yes, it’s Sabathia on the mound, and yes, it’s the Reds. But the Indians are just a few days away from more than likely being in sole possession of last place in the AL Central (currently tied with Royals) where they will likely remain for the duration. They are a terrible baseball team. Point being, they aren’t worthy of being a -200 favorite. Ever.
The Tigers may be worth a look. They are red hot having won 14 of 18 while the Rockies have lost 4 straight. The price is reasonable at -123 or so. As is the price on the Angels tonight in the night cap in LA. Thy have won 9 of 11 from the Dodgers and send 11-3 Joe Saunders to the hill tonight while the Dodgers have lost 4 of their last 6 Games. -125 not a terrible price to lay here
I’m glad Interleague comes to a close tonight. I’m looking forward to getting back to League play. But I’m also looking forward to a few of these matchups over the weekend. Matchups like the ones mentioned in the opening paragraph almost make it worthwhile to have to sit through the Indians and Giants. Almost……enjoy!
