MLB: Sunday Baseball Records Might Surprise2010-06-19
When handicapping baseball day-in and day-out, there is a lot to consider, such as team and pitcher power ratings, bullpen strength, hitting stats, defensive numbers, and even injury factors. Of course, it’s often valuable to look at teams’ situational records, and StatFox offers a plethora of these on its Team Report pages. We’re here today to look at performance on a particular day of the week over the last 2-1/2 seasons, that being Sundays.
We’re not just looking at Sunday because that’s what day it is today, although the timing hopefully will prove valuable. More importantly though, Sunday games in baseball present a pair of situations that can prove definitive over the course of the season, those being most often 1) Day Games and 2) The Final Games of a Series.
You may be saying to yourself, who cares how a team does on Sundays? Or “This type of information is just fluke anyway”. However, keep in mind that baseball can be a superstitious game, and a team’s preparation, be it going out late in an unfamiliar city on Saturday night, or perhaps even going to an early brunch, can often lead to less than typical results. Plus, if you’re one who believes heavily in numbers and trends, how can you argue with some of the results below.
Is it a fluke that the New York Yankees have been almost unbeatable at home lately on Sunday, or that Tampa Bay plays way below its normal standard on the Lord’s Day? Who can explain with certainty why Houston produces so well for bettors on this particular day of the week?
In any case, these are the team that have produced the most distinct results on Sundays over the last 2-1/2 seasons, sorted by units won/lost.

MLB: Angels and Red Sox look to rebound on Monday2010-05-03
As if things weren’t bad enough for the Boston Red Sox after their first losing April in 14 years, they were swept by the worst team in the majors to begin May. Coming off three straight losses to the Orioles, the Red Sox look to get it turned around starting on Monday. The Angels have similar aspirations though, having just been swept at Detroit. Sportsbook.com oddsmakers are siding with the BoSox, installing them as -160 favorites for the teams’ 7 PM ET start.
Even a return to Fenway Park is not as reassuring as it once was for Boston. The Red Sox hope their upcoming 10-game homestand brings better results than their last one - starting Monday night against the Angels, who eliminated Boston from the 2009 playoffs in their last appearance at Fenway.
Los Angeles has faced the Red Sox in an AL division series each of the last three years, and the Angels finally managed to beat Boston with a three-game sweep in October.
The Red Sox (11-14, -8.5 units) will need to climb out of an early hole if they hope to reach the playoffs again. Their first sub-.500 April since 1996 was sealed with Friday night’s 5-4 loss at Baltimore, where Boston then dropped two more over the weekend.
Following their 12-9 win over the Red Sox on Saturday night, the lowly Orioles completed the sweep with a 3-2, 10-inning victory Sunday, scoring the winning run off closer Jonathan Papelbon.
“A sweep’s a sweep. It’s frustrating for us, to go home like that,” starter Josh Beckett said. “We’ve got to go out and win games. It doesn’t matter what month it is.” The Red Sox are only 2-7 at home off a road trip of a week or more.
Boston only won four of 10 on its last homestand, slipping to 5-8 at Fenway. The team went 56-25 at home each of the last two years, the best home record in the majors in that stretch.
This season’s club has had problems in all areas. The Red Sox were held to seven hits Sunday, playing without cleanup hitter Kevin Youkilis (groin). Outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron are on the disabled list. Boston’s pitchers allowed 12 runs for the second time on the road trip Saturday, and the team made four errors in three games against Baltimore. “We’re going to have to regroup in a hurry and figure it out,” manager Terry Francona said.
The Angels (12-14, -3.7) are only one half-game ahead of Boston, but their chances of recovering are much better in the AL West. The Red Sox already trail Tampa Bay by seven games and the New York Yankees by 5 1/2.
Los Angeles, however, will also be trying to rebound from a sweep after beginning its 10-game trip with three straight losses at Detroit. The Angels were limited to four hits in a 5-1 defeat Sunday. It may not be much easier against Clay Buchholz, who has been an early bright spot for the Red Sox.
Buchholz (2-2, 2.19 ERA, 1.297 WHIP) turned in his best outing of the season Tuesday at Toronto, allowing one run in eight innings of a 2-1 victory. The Game 3 starter for Boston in last year’s playoffs, Buchholz held the Angels to two runs in five-plus innings and was in position for a victory until Papelbon blew the save in Los Angeles’ 7-6, series-clinching win.
Buchholz hasn’t found similar success against the Angels in the regular season, going 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA and is 5-13 (-12.9 Units) against the money line vs. teams who strand 6.9 or less runners on-base per game over the last three seasons. (Red Sox Record)
Los Angeles’ Joe Saunders is 4-1 with a 3.24 ERA in his career against Boston and 3-0 with a 2.84 ERA at Fenway, but the left-hander has gotten off to a rough start in 2010. Saunders (1-4, 5.74, 1.575) gave up three runs, nine hits and four walks in five innings of a 9-2 loss to Cleveland on Tuesday and the Halos are just 1-6 in his last seven starts as underdog.
Sportsbook.com has Boston as -160 ML choice with total at 9.5. The Red Sox are 11-4 when Buchholz is the starting hurler and is 6-2 OVER when he takes the ball. The Angels are 25-17 (+18.7 Units) as an underdog of +125 to +175 and is 13-3 UNDER vs. teams with losing record.
This is the ESPN Monday telecast which begins at 7:00 Eastern with Los Angeles 8-4 at Fenway since 2008.
