Internet Sport Betting Top MLB Teams have Closer Issues

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Internet sport betting baseball playoff action is just around the corner at the sportsbook and many of the teams have issues on who will close out their games.

Offshore sports betting in the National League favors the Phillies at the online sportsbook but they have a huge problem with their closer Brad Lidge.

Internet sport betting indicates that other top teams have closer problems as well. The Cardinals have had issues with Ryan Franklin at the back of their bullpen of late and the Los Angeles Angels have very little confidence in their closer Brian Fuentes. The Rockies have struggled with their closer since Huston Street has been hurt since Franklin Morales has been awful.

Lidge has simply been a disaster for the Phillies as Internet sport betting stats show. He has blown 11 saves this Internet sport betting season, most in the major leagues. It is baffling what has happened to Lidge since he was a perfect 48 for 48 in save chances last offshore sports betting season. "I pull like hell for him every time he goes out there, believe me," manager Charlie Manuel said, "I guarantee that." The Phillies really don’t know what to do with their bullpen since Brett Myers has a sore shoulder while Internet sport betting fans think Ryan Madsen looks better in the setup role. Last year the Phillies were 79-0 when leading after the 8th inning. This Internet sport betting season they are 75-10.

The Cardinals have gotten a great year out of closer Ryan Franklin but lately things haven’t gone well in offshore sports betting for the Cardinals when Franklin is pitching. In four of his last seven appearances he has given up runs and he is only 3 out of 6 in save chances this offshore sports betting month. Franklin could be wearing down at the worst time for the Cardinals in Internet sport betting.

The Angels have an issue with Fuentes as he has blown seven saves this Internet sport betting season. He is 0-2 with two blown saves and a 5.63 ERA in September in Internet sport betting.

The Rockies are dealing with no Huston Street so Franklin Morales has been stuck into the role and he as struggled as the closer as Internet sport betting stats show. The good news for Colorado is that Street will be back for the end of the Internet sport betting season and the playoffs.
