SEATTLE MARINERS 2008 SUMMARY
That would give them a one-two punch that would rival anyone in baseball. MLB betting would see the Mariners favored a lot more with Bedard in the mix.
MLB betting on the Mariners last year was up and down because the pitching was very inconsistent. Hernandez was solid all year but the rest of the staff was unpredictable. Lefty Jarrod Washburn is the third starter and he can be excellent or awful as MLB baseball betting gamblers remember. The same applies to Carlos Silva who the Mariners picked up in the offseason. Miguel Batista would be the fifth starter according to MLB betting experts.
The offense is led by Ichiro who is a gold glove outfielder and excellent hitter. He will have veteran Raul Ibanez with him in the outfield according to MLB baseball betting experts. The other spot is up for grabs according to MLB betting experts. Wladimir Balentien, selected as the Pacific Coast League’s Rookie of the Year could be the other starter and impact MLB betting.
The infield has big first baseman Richie Sexson and third baseman Adrian Beltre at the other corner. Between them, Sexson and Beltre have combined to hit 511 home runs and drive in 1,692 runs according to MLB betting stats. Shortstop is held down by Yuniesky Betancourt while second base goes to Jose Lopez according to MLB betting experts. MLB betting experts see that the backups are Willie Bloomquist and Miguel Cairo. The catcher position is held by Kenji Johjima.
The Mariners have one of the best closers in baseball according to MLB betting experts in J.J. Putz. It could be a problem getting to him this year as the bullpen looks weak according to MLB betting experts. The only solid setup man looks to be Eric O’Flaherty.
MLB baseball betting odds will be interesting to watch on Seattle this season. When Bedard and Hernandez are on the mound the Mariners are likely to be favored. When the other three are on the hill the Mariners could be MLB baseball betting underdogs.
