Cliff Lee, Phillies At Milwaukee Brewers

The Philadelphia Phillies are hoping to show the Milwaukee Brewers that they have a long way to go in supplanting them as the best team in the National League this weekend. Both teams are set to play the third contest of a four-game set Saturday night with the first pitch scheduled for 7:10 (ET) inside Miller Park.

Philadelphia opened the highly-anticipated series between two of the three NL division leaders with a 7-2 win Thursday night. The victory evened the season series at two games apiece.

The Phillies are a club-record 44 games over .500 and have won 18 of their last 23 road contests, including wins in nine of the last 11 series away from Citizens Bank Park.

Much of the team’s success has been attributed to the pitching staff that leads the majors with a 3.05 ERA. The unit is led by a starting rotation that paces the league with 69 wins and a 2.90 ERA.

Cliff Lee (16-7, 2.47 ERA) has been one of the top pitchers in the league since the All-Star break, posting a 7-1 record and 1.76 ERA in nine starts, issuing just 11 walks and registering 67 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings. Lee is coming off a dominant performance in his first September start, tossing a complete game 9-0 home shutout over the Atlanta Braves.

It was a continuation of his tremendous month of August when he tallied a 5-0 mark and 0.45 ERA in five starts.

The left-hander has made just two career starts versus the Brewers, going 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA. He led the club to a 4-3 home win in a no-decision effort against Milwaukee in his fourth outing of the year, allowing three runs (two earned) and eight hits over six frames.

Bettors will find that the Phillies are 6-0 in Lee’s last six tries against teams from the NL Central division.

Milwaukee is just 4-6 in its last 10 games, but still lead the St. Louis Cardinals by eight games. The Brewers are among baseball’s elite teams due to their 50-20 home record. It’s important to point out that this squad has absolutely dominated opponents during weekend games, posting a 33-13 combined record on Saturday and Sunday this season.

Randy Wolf (12-9, 3.47) is scheduled to make his 30th start of the season and will be facing someone other than the Cardinals for the first time since August 26. The left-hander picked up a 4-1 road win over the division rivals last time out (8 IP, ER).

The 35-year-old has enjoyed pitching in front of the home fans, coming in with a 7-3 record and 3.46 ERA, surrendering 12 home runs in 14 starts. Wolf spent some time in Philadelphia during his MLB career and is 3-2 with a 4.25 ERA in six starts against his former team. He has dominated Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard, limiting him to a .118 batting average in 17 career at-bats against him.

Total players will find that the Brewers have gone 'over' the total in his last four starts versus NL East teams.

Home plate umpire Todd Tichenor has a 19-12 record in favor of the home teams with the ‘under’ is 17-13-1 in his 31 games behind the mask this season.

Weather forecasts suggest mostly sunny skies and game-time temperatures in the upper-60s. It’s likely such conditions will keep Miller Park’s roof open for the entire game.

NY Yankees Travel West To Face LA Angels

The New York Yankees are winning games at a fast pace right now and beginning to put some space between themselves and second-place Boston in the American League East. The Los Angeles Angels are just trying to stay within reach of the first-place Texas Rangers in the AL West with less than a month to go in the regular season.

Game 2 of the series between the Yankees and Angels will take place Saturday night at 9:05 p.m. (ET) from Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

The series started Friday night with the Angels laying -135 on the money line, the run total opening at 7 ½ and the outcome still pending.

The Angels just finished a 3-game set at home versus the Seattle Mariners where they took two out of three games and managed to save the best of their rotation for the weekend series against New York.

Starting for the Yankees on Friday will be their perennial ace C.C. Sabathia (19-7, 2.97), who has struck out at least six batters in his last 14 starts. Pitching for the Angels will be one of their two aces, Dan Haren (14-8, 3.20). Haren has only walked four men in his last 46 2/3-innings pitched and has been a huge key for the Angels down the stretch of the season.

Sabathia is statistically having one of the best seasons of his career, posting a career-low in ERA and a career-high in strikeouts. The southpaw is currently two wins shy of tying his best mark of 21 set last season.

Since C.C. joined New York in 2009, he has won 59 games and helped the Yankees to a 27th World Championship.

The Yankees have historically struggled in Anaheim, going 10-22 in their last 32 trips to play the Angels. Sabathia faced the Angels once this season back in June when he came up one out short of a complete game in defeating the Angels, 3-2.

Haren last faced the Yankees on August 9, tossing 6 2/3-innings while allowing six hits and four earned runs in a no-decision. The Angels eventually won the game, 6-4.

Saturday’s contest will be the third game of a 10-game road trip for New York that will take them from Baltimore to Los Angeles to Seattle, then finally to Toronto before returning home for an 8-game homestand against the Twins, Rays and Red Sox.

The American League East and American League West divisions are the only two in Major League Baseball right now that have a fight for first place within seven games. That is why this weekend series between the Angels and Yankees will go a long way in deciding who will play in October for the American League.

The weather for Saturday is scheduled to be partly cloudy but otherwise a beautiful night for September baseball on the West Coast.

Phillies, Red Sox Still Top MLB Futures Odds

Philadelphia is a 2/1 favorite to win a second Series title in four years.
Three weeks are all that remain on the 2011 MLB regular season schedule, and the one question on everyone's mind is can the Philadelphia Phillies be stopped once the postseason arrives?

Forget about stopping Charlie Manuel's troops from reaching the playoffs. The Phillies hit the 91-win mark Wednesday night (Sept. 7) and opened a 10.5-game lead in the NL East after sweeping three from the Atlanta Braves, the team many consider could be Philadelphia's stiffest challenger in the National League playoffs.

Manuel's toughest decision right now appears to be which of his top-flight starting pitchers will be relegated to the bullpen once October arrives. It's a problem 29 other clubs would love to have.

The Phillies lead the World Series futures odds as a +200 choice to take home their second championship in four years. American League East rivals Boston (+350) and New York (+500) are next in line followed by Philadelphia's closest NL competitor on the MLB betting board, Milwaukee (+650).

Philadelphia is -130 to capture a third National League pennant in four seasons. Milwaukee (+350) and Atlanta (+500) trail the Phils, followed by the surprising Arizona Diamondbacks (+650).

The San Francisco Giants, last year's NL and World Series champs, are a distant fifth right now at +2200 with the St. Louis Cardinals +8000.

The closest thing to a division race in the NL presently is out West where the Diamondbacks hold a 7-game advantage over the Giants entering play on Sept. 8. Kirk Gibson has done a fabulous job in his first full season as manager, the biggest improvement for the club coming on the mound where the staff has pared almost a full run off its 4.81 ERA from a season ago.

If the playoffs started today, the D-Backs would match up in the NLDS with the Phillies while the Braves and Brewers would battle in the other division series. One can't help but think FOX Sports execs are at least a little nervous about an Arizona, Milwaukee NLCS.

Boston leads the AL futures as +140 favorites over the New York Yankees (+220). Defending AL Champion Texas (+500) and current Central Division leader Detroit (+550) run 3-4 on the odds chart.

The Red Sox own the favorites tag in the Junior Circuit despite presently trailing the Yanks in the AL East by 2.5 games. It remains a race, with the winner most likely drawing home-field advantage throughout the American League playoffs. But the runner-up in the division should still make the postseason.

Boston currently has a 7-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays (+8000 to win AL) for the wild card with the Angels 7.5 back.

Detroit has opened up a 9-game lead over the White Sox in the AL Central, with the Indians a half-game behind the ChiSox in third. Chicago and Cleveland are both +5000, which seems a very generous number given that neither has shown much in the way of being interested in catching the Tigers.

That means the only real race going these days is out in the AL West where the Rangers have a 2-5-game edge over the Angels who are +1500 to take the American League Pennant.

A Phillies, Red Sox World Series matchup was the consensus before the 2011 campaign got underway. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if both teams oblige the early-season predictions and meet this October.

But then, just as we learned last season, Goliath's don't always get their way on the diamond

Saturday's betting tips: Vols go over at home

Who’s hot

MLB: The over is 9-1 in Atlanta pitcher Derek Lowe’s last 10 road starts.

NCAAF: Stanford is 6-1-1 ATS in its last eight road games.

NCAAF: The over is 8-1 in Tennessee’s last nine home games.

CFL: Toronto is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 road games.

WNBA: The under is 8-1 in Chicago’s last nine road games.

Who’s not

MLB: The White Sox are 1-6 in Philip Humber’s last seven starts.

NCAAF: Wake Forest is 0-5 ATS in its last five ACC games.

NCAAF: East Carolina is 3-10 ATS in its last 13 non-conference games.

CFL: The over is 3-12 in the last 15 Toronto-B.C. meetings.

WNBA: Washington is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games.

Injury not to be overlooked

Already decimated by injuries, the New York Giants defense might not have its captain, end Justin Tuck, at full strength for Sunday's opener at Washington. Tuck has lingering neck pain after suffering a stinger in an Aug. 29 preseason game. He returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday. DE Osi Umenyiora won’t be available for another week or two, so Dave Tollefson likely would play if Tuck can't go. New York already has lost six defensive players to season-ending injuries, including top CB Terrell Thomas. Still, the Giants are favored by 3 over the Redskins.

Key stat

10 – That’s how many passes Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd caught from QB Tommy Rees in the second half last week after coach Brian Kelly benched QB Dane Crist. Rees will start Saturday night’s game in Michigan, with the Irish favored by 3. Floyd had 12 catches for 154 yards and 2 TDs in Notre Dame’s 23-20 home loss to South Florida.

Game of the day

No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide at No. 20 Penn State (10, 42)

Notable quotable

"You can't mail days in in this league. And I definitely found I was doing that last year." -- Cowboys LB Anthony Spencer, who had 63 tackles and five sacks last year on a horrific Dallas defense. The Cowboys are 5-point underdogs at the N.Y. Jets on Sunday night.

Notes and tips

No. 10 Nebraska, a 27.5-point favorite against Fresno State, should get a boost from the return of MLB Will Compton. The starter missed all but one series in the opener with a foot bruise. “Will brings an air of confidence to everyone around him, and he’s going to make things run a lot more smoothly,” coach Bo Pelini told CBSSports.com. Freshman Trevor Roach did make seven tackles in Compton’s absence last week.

No. 15 Ohio State will still be missing three players for its game against Toledo. The Buckeyes are favored by 18 points. RB Jordan Hall, CB Travis Howard and S Corey Brown were suspended for the opener for accepting $200 at what they believed was a university-approved charity event in Cleveland earlier this year. The Rockets, meanwhile, also got bad news when it was announced that LB Dan Molls won’t play due to injury. The junior led Toledo with 143 tackles last year.

Umpire Ed Hickox will be behind the plate when the Indians visit the White Sox on Saturday. The road team is 5-0 in Hickox’s last five games calling balls and strikes, and the Indians are 4-0 in his last four games behind the plate.

Saturday's six-pack

According to Forbes Magazine, the six NFL franchises that are worth the most money......

6) Houston Texans, $1.2B

5) New Jersey Jets, $1.223B

4) New Jersey Giants, $1.3B

3) New England Patriots, $1.4B

2) Washington Redskins, $1.55B

1) Dallas Cowboys, $1.85B


*********************


Saturday's List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud........

13) If these BCS college football teams try to break away from NCAA and form their own little group to take advantage of the pot of gold a football playoff would bring, expect Congress to get nvolved, because the non-football schools who will be hurt by the damage done to the NCAA basketball tournament will get into the act and start suing everything that moves. In the end, the lawyers will all get rich, but hopefully the current framework of college sports will stay pretty much the same.

12) The first domino in this newest wave of defections is Texas A&M to the SEC, but because the SEC thinks Baylor, Iowa State or some other Big 12 school will sue the SEC, the Aggies’ move is on hold. It does look like its going to happen though, just not this week.

11) When the Week 1 NFL pointspreads first came out this spring, the Colts opened as a 1-point favorite at Houston. Now with Kerry Collins starting at QB and Peyton Manning out, Indy is an 8.5-point underdog, and it could go higher. A pointspread is used as a tool to get bookmakers equal action on both sides in a game, but how high would this spread have to be before you wagered on the Colts? Over 14?

10) When I was a kid, the term “Irish temper” was heard every now and then, since my mother was Irish. Well it seems as if Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly has an Irish temper too, but he took heat this week for verbally thrashing a couple players during the loss to South Florida last week. Get over it people, he’s a football coach and a darned good one. Yelling is what most football coaches do.

9) A’s got a minor league pitcher from the Red Sox for Conor Jackson last week; not sure how good this kid is, but the A’s put him on waivers and lost him to the Indians, so now all they have to show for trading CoJack is some cash. Terrific.

8) Next week on Tru TV; Hulk Hogan presents Micro Championship Wrestling, otherwise known as midget wrestling. There are no words to accurately describe midget wrestling; you just have to see it for yourself.

7) Always wondered about this, and now I know-- turns out a little over 60% of the purse for a pro golf tournament comes from the network televising the event; rest comes from the title sponsor.

6) Tuesday night’s Baltimore-Bronx game ended at 2:14am; their game Wednesday started at 1:05pm, little less than 11 hours later. Only one Bronx Bomber (Nick Swisher) started both games, but all four umpires worked both games. They had to be dragging by Wednesday night.

5) If you look at TV Guide and see listings for a talk show, and a guest is listed as “a TV personality” it means they have no discernable skills— they’re not an actor-musician-writer-director-producer-athlete. Chances are also, their last name is Kardashian.

4) Chase Utley didn’t fly to Milwaukee with the Phillies Wednesday night because he got drilled in the top of his batting helmet with a pitch against the Braves Wednesday.

3) Phillies still haven't scored more than four runs in any of Cliff Lee's 12 road starts; they scored 5+ runs in eight of his 16 home starts.

2) Strangest non-conference home/home series this college hoops season might be one between Canisius and South Dakota; wonder which airlines has flights that go between Buffalo and Vermillion, South Dakota?

1) If Peyton Manning were to miss this entire season and Colts finished with the worst record in the NFL, would they draft Andrew Luck with the first pick in next April’s draft? That would be a tough decision.

Canadian Bacon: CFL Week 11 odds and picks
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Toronto Argonauts at B.C. Lions (-7.5, 49)

Steven Jyles takes over at QB after the predictable dismissal of Cleo Lemon, but is it already too late for the Argonauts?

Lemon’s departure, after he threw a fit in the Argos' dressing room at halftime of Friday’s game, could be a source of tension on a team not known for unity and harmony.

Jim Barker won the coach of the year award last season for the job he did in Toronto, but he’s got to be wondering if he’ll even end the season as the Argos’ head coach.

Pick: Lions


Hamilton Tiger Cats at Montreal Alouettes (-5, 57)

The Alouettes are still plagued with injuries; it’s obvious that the chemistry that made this team so tough to beat over the last three seasons has been seriously put to the test by each loss.

But if this team still has a bit of pride, it will bounce back this week in front of the fans at Percival-Molson Stadium.

It is the second time this year that the Alouettes are on a two-game losing streak. Anthony Calvillo, although shut down by Hamilton’s defense, remains one of the most efficient QBs in the CFL with a TD-INT ratio of 17-4.

You have to think that coach Marc Trestman will run the ball more often with Brandon Whitaker, who leads all rushers. The attack becomes somewhat predictable, despite all of his tricky patterns on offense.

The return of DT Eric Wilson should slow down former Alouette Avon Cobourne, who rushed for 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 19 carries in the Tiger Cats' win.

Pick: Alouettes


Saskatchewan Roughriders at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (-5.5, 47.5)

The Roughriders are better than their 1-7 records indicates. Although it will be tough in Winnipeg, they should prevail again against a Blue Bombers team that is starting to show some weaknesses and vulnerability.

The acquisition of Dallas Baker and the return of Adam Fantuz (released by the Chicago Bears last week) will give QB Darian Durant two prime targets.

Defensively, the Blue Bombers have become more predictable after dominating the league in sacks. They only have one in their last two games.

Pick: Roughriders
