Aroldis Chapman posted by Reds Fan

Born February 28, 1988, Aroldis Chapman is presently with Cincinnati Reds, playing Major League baseball. He is from Cuba and nicknamed the Cuban Flame Thrower or the Cuban Missile, as he is a fantastic pitcher, and holds the MLB record for fastest pitch speed of 106mph. He also holds the record for striking out minimum one batter in 40 appearances consecutively. Chapman has a left-handed throw, and he bats as well.   

Aroldis Chapman started playing baseball when he was 15 years old. Initially he was a first baseman, but the coach noticed his throw, and recognized his potential to be a good pitcher. In 2006, Chapman joined a team of Cuban National Series. In 327 2/3 innings, he managed 365 strikeouts, 3.74 ERA, and 24-19 record. In 2008, Chapman failed in defecting to U.S., and the Cuban President suspended him from playing baseball for the full year. In 2009, he was successful in defecting when the Cuban team was playing in Netherlands, and became a resident of Andorra.

In January 2010, Chapman signed a six-year contract with the Cincinnati reds, and in April that year he played his first professional match for the Louisville Bats, a Triple-A team. In this match against the Mud Hens, he pitched for 4 2/3 innings and struck out nine, and gave only one unearned run. In August 2010, Chapman made his MLB debut, when the Reds were playing against Milwaukee Brewers in the eight innings. The very first pitch was recorded to be 98mph and was called strike. In March 2014, Chapman suffered a skull fracture when he was hit by Salvador Perez's line drive, and had to undergo surgery. In May, he was back and Chapman made his 100th save against the Diamondbacks in July, which made him the eight fastest pitchers to achieve this record.

Betting on the Reds in 2013 posted by Reds Fan

Are you a big Cincinnati Reds fan? Are you confident that your team can beat any other team in the MLB? Then you may want to take a chance and win lots of money by picking your team in an online betting game. There are three ways of MLB online betting that you can choose from- money line, run line and over under.

Money line is the easiest type of online betting that you can participate in. The rules are simple- just pick the team you think will win the game. Since you’re a Reds fan, you’d naturally pick your team here. Each team has odds and you simply have to choose the team that will win the ball game. As in any other gambling game, teams with bigger odds of winning will payout less money that the amount that you wagered while teams with lesser chances of winning will have a bigger payout than the amount you have bet.

The other game that you can put your money into is run line betting. In this game, the favored team has a 1.5 run advantage that it has to cover in order for you to win the bet. If your Cincinnati Red win by two or more runs, you win. But if they don’t, you lose the game.

Or you can put your money in over under betting. Here bookies will set a total number of runs scored by the competing teams. You can choose if the total number of runs to be completed in the game is either higher or lower than what was set by the bookies.

Online MLB betting is fun and exciting, however if you can't quite make your mind up over who's going to come out on top or if you're looking for a bit of betting fun during the close-season there are many types of online gambling to get your fix from.

The Latest Marmol Meltdown Is Enough posted by Richard Kagan

Here the deal on Cub's reliever Carlos Marmol.  The hard throwing righty is either lights out, or it's All Hands on Deck.   Marmol was in the game vs. the Reds to protect a 3-0 lead and a gem of performance by Ryan Dempster. Marmol walked guys, put runners in scoring position and Cincinnati scratched 3 runs to tie the game.  They won it on the 10th.  Marmol is boring.  He doesn't get anyone out.  His walk ratio per batters pitched is horrendous.  Something like 25% of the guys he has faced, he has walked.  You don't have to get a hit off him.  Just stand there.  When he is on and somedays he is, his slider is unhittable.   The thing is with Marmol who don't know which pitcher will show up.  The closer or the Blower.  He has blown some games that were in the bag.  And, that is hard to do.  I used to like him.  He thought he was going to be great.  But, groom someone else for the closer role.  Let some other pitcher try his luck.  It has to be better than Marmol.

President's Speech vs. NFL game posted by Richard Kagan

What in the world are we coming to?  President Obama wanted to make his national address on Wednesday night but House speaker John Boehner objected.  This was political brinksmanship at its finest.  Now, Obama had to either go ahead with the date, or move his address to Congress nect night, the debut for the 2011 NFL season.  President Obama opted to make his address on Thursday.  Now, people will have to decide to watch the game or listen to Obama's speech.

What to do?  If you were as patriotic as the character that Hank Williams plays on the intro the Monday Night Football, you'll listen to Obama's speech.  Are you ready for some football?  Not yet.  I can wait a half hour.  But now people will have to make a decision, you can't trust people to make an informed choice.  Or to go with their instincts.  This is not life and death, it's a football game, one of hundreds that will be shown on TV this fall and winter.  If you have a problem missing the game, then look at that.  If we don't get a handle on the economy, football will be relatively meaningless.  I'll take the odds on that one.

Stealing Away Some Rival Talent posted by Todd F. Dixon

Another busy day for the Redskins front office.  There is a new strategy in DC these days, steal away talent from your rivals.  Instead of looking all over the country for players, we looked at situations in our division and up 95 to shore up our roster.  Let's take a look at the recent moves.

Josh Wilson CB Ravens - Wilson is a local product having gone to Dematha and then on to UMD.  He was a 2nd round pick ny the Seahawks in 2007.  He was traded to the Ravens on the last year of his contract when injuries decimated the Ravens secondary.   He quickly stepped up his game and landed himself in a starting position.  He also has experience returning kicks and punts so he could help in special teams as well.  His skills are just as good as Carlos Rogers except he has goood hands and is 4 years younger.  He is automatically a starter opposite DHall and a huge upgrade.  So long Butterfingers Rogers.

Stephen Bowen DE Cowboys - An undrafted free agent as a rookie out of Hofstra, he was signed to the Cowboys in 2006.  He learned in Wade Phillips 3-4 defense and is considered a very good 3-4 end.  The Cowboys desperately wanted to keep him but they have salary cap issues and the Redskins surprisingly swooped in and signed him.  He provides great depth along the line, and with Fat Albert and Jeremy Jarmon gone, he will see many oportunities to get at the QBs of the east.

 Barry Cofield NT Giants - Cofield didn't play in a 3-4, but the defense the Giants use has been known to use certain aspects of that type of defense.  He is listed as a nose tackle on NFL.com which was the Redskins greatest need this offseason.  Cofield was HUGE for the Giants and they were very upset to see him go, especiallly to a division rival.  He will be seeing Eli a lot this season though, in the backfield.

Redskins Free Agent Activity!! posted by Todd F. Dixon

So the Redskins were said to be making a huge "splash" in free agencey, which they haven't really done.  The main targets for the Redskins (WR Santonio Homes, OL Marshal Yanda, and OL Doug Free, CB Ike Taylor) all re-signed with their respective teams.  So, plan B.  They made some moves pretty quick although they weren't what was expected.

 The first move they made was dumping Donovan Mcnabb which ends yet another highly anticipated era that ended poorly.  I'm happy we got rid of him and were able to get some value (even though it was a 6th rounder).  Bruce Allen has yet again been able to turn a bad situation good and save a little dignity to this Snyder franchise.  It was a great move, and we will save millions on the cap that we are already more than 20 million under (somehow).  We could sign 3 players with the money we are going to save which we kinda did.

The first big signing was Giants DT Barry Cofield.  He is listed as a NT which was our 2nd biggest glaring need on defense behind CB but, he has been a 4-3 DT (Like Haynesworth) his whole career.  The only thing I can say is that he has the right size, and is a team-first guy who will play wherever he is asked.  He is also great at getting to the QB, so I may be okay with it when I see it play out.  

The best and smartest move was re-signing Santana Moss.  This was so perfect.  He had the best year of his career last year (93 receptions) playing all over the field getting thrown to by a struggling Mcnabb and Grossman.  He will provide great veteran leadership on the field, and also he is a great locker room presence and knows the system and loves DC.

Trevor Time calls it a day posted by David

Trevor Hoffman, Major League Baseball’s all-time saves leader, announced his retirement this week after an illustrious 18-year big league career.  The seven-time All-Star finishes his career with 601 saves, a 61-75 record, a 2.87 ERA, and 1,133 strikeouts.  In 1089.1 innings pitched – spanning 1035 games – he surrendered exactly 100 home runs.  Hoffman spent the bulk of his career with the Padres, with whom he won four division titles and one National League pennant.


Hoffman was drafted as a position player, but after hitting .249 and .212 in his first two seasons in the low levels of the minors, the Reds turned him into a pitcher.  Hoffman found immediate success on the mound, going on to become a dominant closer for nearly two decades, but Cincinnati lost him to the Marlins in the 1992 Expansion Draft.  After half a season in the majors, he was traded to San Diego in a deal that sent Gary Sheffield to Florida.  Hoffman would spend the next 15 and a half seasons in a Padres uniform.


Hoffman’s best season came in 1998, when he recorded 53 saves (at the time, tied for second in a season), boasted an ERA of just 1.48 and a WHIP of 0.85, and allowed only two home runs.  In 73 innings, Hoffman struck out 86 batters while walking 21.  That same year, he came in second in Cy Young Award voting despite receiving more first-place votes (13) than the winner, Tom Glavine (11).  In an MVP race that saw sluggers Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire finish first and second, Hoffman came in

A new champion is crowned posted by David

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants, who are World Champions for the first time since moving to the west coast more than 50 years ago.  Their last title in New York came in 1954, when Willie Mays made “the catch” that will be played on highlight reels forever.  The Giants came unbelievably close to not even making the playoffs this year, but the fans who claimed that watching their team was “torture” are now the happiest fans in baseball.

How ‘bout that?

How about Matt Cain?  The San Francisco hurler was nearly untouchable throughout the playoffs, outshining staff ace Tim Lincecum, who had a bad outing in Game 1 of the Fall Classic.  In three postseason starts, Cain allowed only an unearned run over 21.1 innings of work, going at least 6.2 innings in each outing and providing a huge boost to his team’s hunt for glory.  He might be the best #2 starter in the majors, but Matt Cain looked like the second coming of Cy Young when it mattered most for the Giants.

How about Brian Wilson?  The flamethrower’s postseason numbers included six saves (in seven chances) and a win in 11.2 innings pitched, allowing just an unearned run.  Additionally, Wilson allowed no more than one hit per appearance while anchoring the San Francisco bullpen.  Wilson gave Bruce Bochy the confidence this postseason usually reserved for Mariano Rivera’s manager when handing his closer the ball in October (or November).

How about the fantastic class of rookies in the postseason?  Stephen Strasburg wasn’t among them, but Jason Heyward (Braves), Buster Posey (Giants), Aroldis Chapman (Reds), Danny Valencia (Twins), Wade Davis (Rays), Neftali Feliz and Mitch Moreland (both Rangers) would make an incredible young team if they all played together.  In fact, even top prospect Domonic Brown, who compiled just 62 regular-season at-bats, was on the Phillies’ playoff roster.  Expectations will be high for this talented group, and here’s hoping none of them experiences too much of a sophomore slump.

Longer series are good for ball posted by David

Postseason sweeps are great if your team comes out victorious, but for the fan who just wants to see a good series because his team is already done for the year, sweeps make October less exciting.  The Phillies and Yankees outplayed their first-round opponents so it was no surprise that the Reds and Twins failed to win a single game, but the other two division series were more fun to watch.  Additionally, the League Championship Series in both the AL and NL will last a minimum of six games, which is how it should be.  A postseason series that features one team in complete control over the other is like a boxing match in which one fighter KO’s the other in the first round, but then fights him again the next night and does it all over again.  A series that goes the distance (or a game shy of it), on the other hand, is good for ball.

How ‘bout that?

How about Cody Ross?  The Giants outfielder hit two home runs against Roy Halladay in Game 1 of the NLCS and added one off Roy Oswalt in Game 2 to provide San Francisco with its only run of the game.  This feat of power against two of the league’s best pitchers comes after Ross hit only three long balls in 33 games after coming over in a trade from the Marlins.  Though closer Brian Wilson has struck out six in 3.1 scoreless innings of work, Ross’s .375/.474/1.063 line as an everyday player makes him the favorite for the series MVP should his team eliminate the two-time defending NL Champs and play in the Fall Classic for the first time since 2002.

Pair of Triple Crown candidates duel it out posted by David

Albert Pujols and Joey Votto are having monster seasons.  Not only are the sluggers leading their teams in the playoff hunt – the Cardinals are 1.5 games back in the Wild Card race while the Reds lead the NL Central – but Pujols (.321, 34 HR, 93 RBI) and Votto (.326, 31 HR, 90 RBI) are the top two National Leaguers in each of the Triple Crown categories.  Both have strong cases for the MVP award, but if either one wins the first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967, it would be awfully hard for the voters not to choose him as the league’s Most Valuable Player.

How ‘bout that?

How about Billy Wagner?  The 39-year-old anchor of the Atlanta bullpen has saved 30 games, holds a 1.68 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP, and did not give up a run in the entire month of June (11.1 innings, six hits, five walks, 17 strikeouts).  Wagner plans to retire at season’s end, and with the Braves currently leading the NL East, he’s looking for his first crack at the World Series and the opportunity to go out on top.

How about Carlos Gonzalez?  The Venezuelan outfielder is enjoying a fine year in his first full season as a big leaguer, hitting .320 with 26 homers, 84 RBI’s, and 20 stolen bases.  His batting average, .569 slugging percentage, and .922 OPS put him behind only Pujols and Votto in the National League.  Rockies fans can look forward to many years of watching Gonzalez display his talents at Coors Field.  At 24, he has a very promising career ahead of him.

How about the Twins?  Despite almost getting no-hit and losing three of four to the Rangers earlier this week, the Twinkies are 27-13 since the All-Star break, and hold a three-and-a-half game lead over the White Sox in the AL Central.  After losing cleanup man Justin Morneau to injury the week before the All-Star break, several Minnesota players have stepped up to the plate.  Since the break, birthday boy Jim Thome (now 40) is slugging .651, Delmon Young and Jason Kubel have driven in 33 and 32 runs, respectively, in 39 games, and Joe Mauer has raked to a line of .399/.476/.594 with 32 RBI’s in 36 games.

Yankees ride Chris Young's three-run homer to victory in Houston (Big League Stew)

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. The AL East is getting tighter by the day and on any given night can swing a different direction on one swing of the bat. In Friday's action, the biggest swing may have belonged to New York Yankees outfielder Chris Young. One pitch after breaking his bat on a foul ball against Will Harris, Young grabbed his new lumber and muscled up for a three-run homer. Those three runs would be all New York mustered against Vincent Velásquez and Houston's bullpen, but it would be enough to pull off a 3-2 victory. [ Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness. ] Young's blast immediately followed singles from Carlos Beltran and Garrett Jones. Young finished the game with three hits, which gives him four multi-hit games in a row. He's also a big fan of hitting at Minute Maid Park. Chris Young's .405 BA at Minute Maid Park is 2nd-highest by any player (min. 100 AB). Joey Votto (.415) is 1st. https://t.co/cMlUuawfqJ — Katie Sharp (@ktsharp) June 27, 2015 Houston native Nathan Eovaldi picked up the win for New York after tossing six innings of two-run ball. He struck out six. Dellin Betances bounced back from his first career loss on Tuesday by retiring all four batters he faced. With the win and a Tampa Bay Rays loss to Boston, the Yankees moved back to within one-half game of first place. The Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays now sit one game behind headed into Saturday's action. CARDINALS INCH CLOSER TO 50 WINS The most intriguing series of the weekend is taking place down in St. Louis, where the first-place Cardinals are hosting the rival Chicago Cubs. We say intriguing, because everybody wants to know if the quickly improving Cubs can prove to be a real threat to St. Louis in the NL Central. Verdict after game one: Not quite yet. In typical Cardinals fashion, they received a quality outing from starter John Lackey and found just enough offense to break the Cubs hearts, winning 3-2 on a walkoff error in the 10th inning.  The Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs when Cubs skipper Joe Maddon went to the five-man infield. Naturally, Peralta hit a grounder to Mike Baxter, Chicago's fifth infielder, who threw home wide.  As noted, Lackey was good, tossing seven innings of two-run ball. Jake Arrieta was even better for Chicago, allowing one run over seven innings. Pedro Strop, however, coughed up the slim lead on a pinch-hit home run by Greg Garcia. The win was St. Louis' league-best 49th this season. Houston is next in line with 43. The Cardinals are 27-7 at home, which is also the league's best mark. They own an eight-game division lead over Pittsburgh and are 9 1/2 in front of Chicago.    NOAH SYNDERGAARD PITCHES METS BACK OVER .500 Lack of offense was the New York Mets key issue during their recent seven-game losing streak, which pushed them one game under .500. Now the team's young starting pitching is looking to take charge and turn things back around. On Thursday, likely All-Star Jacob deGrom did his part, allowing just four hits and striking out seven in a win against the Milwaukee Brewers. On Friday, rookie Noah Syndergaard got them back over .500, allowing one run on five hits in a 2-1 victory against the Cincinnati Reds. Syndergaard needed just 89 pitches to complete eight innings. He struck out five and walked none. It was easily the best start of his rookie campaign, and considering the Mets' recent struggles it couldn't have come at a better time. Now they'll look to build their winning streak with Matt Harvey taking the ball on Saturday afternoon. [ On this week's StewPod: Looking back at a fun week in baseball with Jeff Passan ] Offensively, the Mets did very little against Johnny Cueto. Curtis Granderson led off the game with a solo home run. They also pieced together a run in the fifth on Dilson Herrera's triple and three walks. Lucas Duda's walk drove in the go-ahead run. Jeurys Familia pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save. JAYS LAUNCH FOUR HOMERS IN WIN OVER RANGERS After eeking out a 1-0 win in 12 innings against the Rays on Wednesday, the Toronto Blue Jays offense wasted no time taking over on Friday. Trailing by an early run on Prince Fielder's 300th career homer, the Jays answered quickly and emphatically thanks to Edwin Encarnacion's grand slam and went on to a 12-2 triumph. Overall, Toronto connected for four home runs. That included a separate solo shot from Encarnacion, as well as solo shots from Russell Martin and Danny Valenica. The latter of which came off Rangers position player Adam Rosales. The outburst made a winner of Mark Buehrle, who's now 8-4 on the season. Buehrle has received at least 10 runs of support in five of his 15 outings this season, including a total of 37 over his first three starts. Want to see more from Friday’s slate of games?

Todd Frazier stays red-hot, hits walk-off grand slam for Reds (Big League Stew)

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. If we couldn't convince you earlier on Wednesday that Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier was worthy of starting the All-Star game at the Great American Ball Park, perhaps his performance later that evening did the trick. Coming off a two-homer game Tuesday night in Detroit, Frazier muscled up for two more home runs in an 8-4 victory, including a 13th-inning walk-off grand slam off Tigers closer Joakim Soria.   That's four home runs in two games and 22 on the season for Frazier, which ties him for second in MLB along with Bryce Harper. We don't just need him in the All-Star game, we need him representing the home Reds in the Home Run Derby.  Of course, Frazier couldn't do everything on his own. The Reds also got career nights from Jay Bruce (five hits) and Brayan Pena (four hits). Unfortunately, they were batting directly after Frazier, otherwise this game may have been over a lot quicker than 1 a.m. ET.  This all played out in a game started by David Price and Johnny Cueto, which was later interupted for 1 hour, 14 minutes by Mother Nature. The true result: Mother Nature wins again.  [ Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness. ] KING FELIX OUTDUELS MAD-BUM TO EARN 10TH VICTORY The pitching matchup of the night on Wednesday was also one of the most anticipated pitching matchups of the entire season. On one side, you had World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner representing the San Francisco Giants. For the homestanding Seattle Mariners, it was former Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez. It looked good on paper. It played out even better before the 34,844 in attendance at Safeco Field and those watching on television. For 15 of their combined 16 innings, the two studs traded zeros on the scoreboard. For 4 1/3 innings, Bumgarner was actually perfect. Mark Trumbo ended that with a bad-hop single that Brandon Crawford recovered and threw for an error. The only breakthrough came in the sixth inning when Mike Zunino, Austin Jackson and Robinson Cano went single-triple-double, producing two quick runs. The Mariners held on for the 2-0 victory, with Hernandez throwing eight scoreless on four hits to pick up his AL-leading 10th victory. Bumgarner, for his part, was credited with a complete game despite taking the loss. He allowed those two runs on just four hits. A true pitching duel if there ever was one, and a much-needed win for the still scuffling Mariners. MICHAEL PINEDA DOMINATES IN YANKEES' BOUNCE-BACK WIN After dropping two straight in Miami, the New York Yankees' four-game series with the Marlins shifted to Yankee Stadium on Wednesday. Unfortunately for the Yankees, their offense seemed to still be in Baltimore following their weekend series. After combining to score three runs in Miami, they mustered only two runs against Jose Urena and company. Fortunately for the Yankees, they had Michael Pineda doing some heavy lifting. He held Miami to a Christian Yelich home run and two walks over 6 2/3 innings and that's it, which allowed them to escape with a 2-1 victory. [ On this week's StewPod: Should fans really pick the MLB All-Stars? ] Pineda struck out nine, but struggled a bit with his efficiency and worked into numerous deep counts. That prevented him from working deeper in the game. The Yankees bullpen bridged the gap to victory, with Chasen Shreve, Justin Wilson and Dellin Betances securing the final seven outs. Betances, who's filling in for Andrew Miller as closer, was called on to get five outs. He struck out two, including an overpowering strikeout of Giancarlo Stanton in a power-vs.-power matchup. PIRATES SHUTOUT STREAK ENDS, WINNING STREAK CONTINUES It was bound to happen. On Wednesday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates allowed a run (two runs, actually) against the Chicago White Sox. But don't worry, Pirates fans, the Jolly Roger was still raised following a 3-2 victory. Pirates pitching entered with three consecutive shutouts, including two against those same White Sox in Pittsburgh. Overall, the streak spanned 28 scoreless innings, including the final 10 innings of their weekend series against Philadelphia. On the flip side, the White Sox hadn't scored in 25 innings dating back to Sunday's loss against Tampa Bay. Needless to say, the matchup didn't look good on paper. It looked worse when Pittsburgh scored three runs in the first inning, but the White Sox were able to make it interesting against Jeff Locke in the sixth inning on Melky Cabrera's RBI double and Avisail Garcia's RBI single. From there, though, Pittsburgh's bullpen started a new streak, silencing the White Sox for three innings and extending the Pirates' winning streak to seven.

Padres-Reds Preview (The Associated Press)

In Andrew Cashner's last start, hittable and unhittable came together in a manner unseen in more than 100 years of baseball, and the results weren't favorable. The right-hander will try following up that baffling outing with more positive results Saturday in a visit to the Cincinnati Reds as the San Diego Padres go for a season-best fourth straight win. Cashner (2-8, 3.46 ERA), flipped in the rotation with Odrisamer Despaigne, gets a chance a day early to forget about Monday's 7-0 home loss to the New York Mets. [read full article]
