With his first win as a Ranger on Saturday, Bartolo Colon tied a record and moved that much closer to another one.
Colon has now won a game with 11 different teams; he’s tied with three other pitchers in the history of the game and nobody has won with more different teams.
He’s also just two wins shy of Juan Marichal’s record for wins by a pitcher from the Dominican Republic.
It was his first win, but worst start, of the season. He ought to be tied with Marichal by now because in just three starts (and two relief appearances) he already has a full win above replacement.
It’s a good thing the Rangers picked Colon up in the offseason because he’s their best pitcher right now. Cole Hamels has been slightly above average, though. It’s not as if he’s a stiff, yet.
The Tribe got pounded on Saturday against Seattle but it will have a chance to win the series in the rubber match on Sunday.
The Indians already have about a 90 percent chance to win the AL Central, according to a few projection models I like to check online. That has to do with all the depth Cleveland has and the porous competition.
Trevor Bauer looked great in his last start, the fastball was explosive and the hook was hard. He’s got it in him, it’s just a matter of how often he can look like an ace. Cleveland probably only cares that he does it in the playoffs.
The pitching has been stellar, but not necessarily better than expected. Look at the offensive numbers and you could make the argument that every position player will finish with a better slash-line than he has currently. That’s scary.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- TEX are 10-23 in their last 33 games on grass.
- Under is 6-2-1 in Hamels’ last 9 Mon. starts.
- CLE are 21-7 in their last 28 Mon. games.
- CLE are 48-17 in their last 65 games on grass.
- CLE are 41-15 in their last 56 home games.
Free Texas Rangers vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Texas scores some runs.
I’ve got a hunch Texas gets to Bauer a bit. With Cleveland’s bullpen a little banged up, I’m comfortable playing a Texas team total, or maybe even the game total, over. You could always just take the underdog.
