Baseball betting has taken a back seat to steroid scandal in New York. The Yankees are no stranger to headlines, but the recent A-Rod revelations are not a good a way for any team to begin the bet on baseball season.
But if any team can overcome the negative press that’s sure to dog the slugger all baseball betting season, it’s the Yankees. Baseball betting scouting has been hugely overshadowed by the slugging third baseman’s admission to using a banned substance during the 2001-03 baseball betting seasons.
But that’s all in the past, and thanks to MLB’s flawed testing polices the case, except in the minds of baseball betting fans and others, is closed. In the present, A-Rod is still one of the best hitters that ever lived and he’s still going to put huge numbers this baseball betting season. His personal turmoil aside, he is the most productive of the Yankees expensive bats and he’ll be integral to the team’s bet on baseball success.
The usual suspects will fill out the Yankees baseball betting opening day roster including team captain Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui. But the real story of the 2009 baseball betting Yankees are the new additions, not the regulars. No team in recent memory has landed such a talented class of free agents in a single bet on baseball season as the New York Yankees. At the plate the Yanks won the top free agent bat of the off-season in Mark Teixeira, who’s been one of the best hitters in baseball betting over the past three seasons. He’ll help solidify a lineup that had a hard time producing runs last year and protect A-Rod in the season ahead.
But pitching is where the Yanks made a real splash in the baseball betting off season. For years the team’s main weakness has been the starting rotation, but as long as they can stay healthy, the Yank’s rotation is arguably the best you’ll see in any bet on baseball competition. The team landed the top two free agent pitching prizes in CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett. Sabathia seems a lock to start the bet on baseball season in the number one spot, followed by Burnett, Chien Ming Wang, Andy Pettitte and Joba Chamberlain. Only the Red Sox can rival this very tough baseball betting pitching staff.
The team still has the best middle reliever in the history of baseball betting, but Mariano Rivera has been moved to closer and the middle relief could be the Yanks weakness in the season ahead. Expect the Yankees to finish second to the Sox in baseball betting AL East.
