Milwaukee Brewers acquire Zack Greinke from Kansas City Royals
2010-12-28

The Milwaukee Brewers proved that they are dead serious in forming a more formidable team next season when they acquired Zack Greinke from the Kansas City Royals.


The Brewers also acquired shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt plus cash considerations, while sending Alcides Escobar, Lorenzo Cain, Jake Odorizzi, and Jeremy Jeffress to the Royals.


Brewers’ general manager Doug Melvin expressed his excitement for successfully acquiring Greinke, despite giving up a lot of talents like prospects Odorizzi and Jeffress. Melvin said that the arrival of Greinke, whom he tagged as one of the top young pitchers today, will give them a big boost next season.


“Zack Greinke is one of the top young pitchers in the game today,” Melvin said in the team’s official statement. “We are very excited to add him to our new rotation. Zack brings great physical skills and athleticism to the team and is an outstanding competitor. This trade is a credit to our scouting and player development staff as their hard work and judgment provided us the talented prospects that Kansas City will be receiving.”


Milwaukee outfielder Corey Hart also expressed his excitement after hearing the news and he declared that the Brewers would be a tough nut to crack next season, especially after acquiring Shaun Marcum earlier this offseason.


“We were getting better with Marcum, now Greinke,” Hart said. “Brewers are for real!”


Royals general manager Dayton Moore, on the other hand, said that Greinke, who was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA last season, would be a big loss, but the young players they acquired from Milwaukee would fit in their system and their rotation that also features up-and-coming players.


“We expect to be competitive next year,” Moore said. “We're still working to improve our baseball team.”


Moore also revealed that Greinke, who was 60-67 with a 3.82 ERA in his more than six seasons with the Royals, was very cooperative during the trade talks and the veteran pitcher even agreed to waive the no-trade clause in his contract that he signed on January 2009.


“He was very much open to it at the end of the day,” Moore said. “A big part of my heart will always pull for Zack. What he overcame, the success he had here, to the point it's not easy to make these types of deals. You would prefer to have him here and sign him long-term but it just wasn't something we could do.”


Moore reiterated that the decision to deal Greinke was a difficult decision, but they have to make the move in their bid to rebuild for their future. Moore is expecting Greinke to shine in the National League next season.


“This guy's one of the best fielding pitchers in the game,” Moore said. “You can't bunt on him. He holds runners. He's a studier. I think he's going to do terrific.”


With the deal, the Royals prove that they are dead serious in their rebuilding process and adding Odorizzi, who was one of the top minor league pitching prospects, will give them a boost next season, as well as Escobar and Jeffress, who both had decent performances last season. The Brewers are +2000 to win the National League pennant in 2011 according to the Baseball Odds at sportsbook.com the home of MLB betting.

Giants +130a

The World Series gets underway Wednesday night in San Francisco with two unlikely franchises playing for baseball’s most coveted prize. The Giants haven’t won a World Series since 1954 and Texas is making its first-ever appearance in the Fall Classic.

The only pitching matchup set in stone is Game 1 which is scheduled to feature aces Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) and Tim Lincecum (16-10, 3.43 ERA). Lee has been remarkable this postseason, going 3-0 with a 0.75 ERA in three starts. The southpaw has given up just two runs on 13 hits in 24 innings while striking out 34 and walking only one. Lincecum has been tremendous as well, compiling a 2-1 record and a 1.96 ERA in three playoff starts.

Wednesday will mark the first meeting between the two teams this year. They met last year as a part of interleague play with the Giants sweeping Texas in a three-game set in San Francisco. Two of the three games went under the total. Matt Cain threw a gem in the middle game of the series, going eight innings and giving up one run on three hits in a 2-1 Giants win. Texas is likely to see Cain in Game 2.

After Lee, San Francisco should see the combination of C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis. Wilson is 1-1 with a 3.93 ERA so far this postseason while Lewis is 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA. Lewis picked up both wins against the vaunted Yankee offense and limited New York to three runs over 13.2 innings. Meanwhile, the Giants’ rotation behind Lincecum has fared well this postseason with Cain leading the way at 1-0 having yet to give up an earned run. Jonathan Sanchez totes a 2.93 postseason ERA while Madison Bumgarner comes in at 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA in three appearances.

Here are some interesting MLB betting trends for those that will be betting on the World Series.

NLCS Game: Phillies facing elimination, Giants look to advance
2010-10-21

Sportsbook.com Phillies vs. Giants Betting Odds: Philadelphia -123, San Francisco +113 Total: 5.5

Coming into the year, Roy Halladay (21-10, 2.44 ERA) had never pitched in a postseason game. Thursday he starts the biggest game of his career as the Phillies try to stave off elimination and send the series back to Philadelphia. Tim Lincecum (16-10, 3.43 ERA) goes for San Francisco in what becomes a rematch of Game 1, a 4-3 Giants victory.

San Francisco tagged Halladay for four runs on eight hits, including two home runs in the series opener. The loss dropped Halladay to 0-3 lifetime against San Francisco. His ERA against the Giants now stands at 6.66 and his WHIP is a hefty 1.48. It was Halladay’s first loss since August 30, breaking up a streak of six consecutive wins. The right-hander pitched well on the road this year, going 10-5 with a 2.57 ERA. With the total posted at just 5.5, it’s interesting to note that only one of Halladay’s last seven starts have gone under the total (five over, one push).

Lincecum comes into the matchup after picking up the win in Game 1, giving up three runs on six hits over seven innings. He allowed two home runs for just the second time this year. With the win, Lincecum is now 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA over his last three starts. Including the postseason, he is 10-7 with a 3.40 ERA at home this year.
