Monday, August 15, 2022 San Diego Padres vs. Miami Marlins (MLB) - 6:40 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Moneyline Miami Marlins Rating: 9* Mike's Monday Night Avenger Play (WIN) Since the VTD system shuts down too early before game time, here's a play for Monday night for no charge. In 2013, Sandy Alcantara got his big break when the 17-year-old Dominican was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals as an international free agent. He was traded to the Marlins' organization & played for their now-defunct AAA-affiliate New Orleans Baby Cakes (PCL) in April of 2018. He solidified a starting rotation spot 2 months later with Miami & the rest is history. Tonight with Drury-DH, Cronenworth-2B, Kim-SS, Grisham-CF & Nola-C a strong possibility of batters faced for Inning-2, I feel we have more than something brewing since they combined to go 1-for-11 when Alcantara lost a 3-2 decision (2 ER's yielded) @ San Diego on May 6th. Sandy's still has a solid 2.01 ERA overall & chimes in with a 1.96 ERA @ night. Wait for this pick to be available after the game starts & play for 9 Stars the for SAN DIEGO PADRES-NO SCORE-Inning 2 as Alcantara looks to avenge his earlier loss. NOTES: It was a snapback 3-0 week after the 14-game winning streak ended. This season features NO tie-breaker games @ the end of the regular season. Here are all 5 of the new post-season tie-breaking procedures in order of use. 1) Head-to-Head Record 2) Intradivisional Record 3) Interdivisional Record 4) Record In Last Half of Intraleague Games 5) Record In Last Half of Intraleague Games Plus One Until Tie Is Broken -- Wild Card round is now best of 3, Division Series is still best-of-5 while League Championship Series & World Series stay best-of-7. Back by popular demand, the following is an updated look (going into August 17th) @ the MLB standings since the All-Star Break to gauge current momentum. AL East: Baltimore 15-9, Toronto 11-11, Tampa Bay 11-12, Boston 10-14, NY Yankees 8-17. AL Central: Cleveland 16-11, Chi. White Sox 15-10, Minnesota 10-11, Kansas City 12-14, Detroit 8-19.
