**********


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Happy Opening Day, everyone!!!

13) Atlanta Braves raised a white flag the day before Opening Day, shedding roughly $55M in net salary, but dealing closer Craig Kimbrel to San Diego. You know your career is in the ashcan when a team trades their closer so they can also get rid of you (BJ Upton).

12) Meanwhile, the Padres are an intriguing team as the season starts; no one can say they're not trying to challenge the Dodgers/Giants in NL West.

11) Alabama hires Avery Johnson as its hoop coach; he was NBA Coach of the Year in 2006, but has never coached in college. Johnson's son plays for Texas A&M, an SEC rival of Alabama. People think he'll be a great recruiter.

Guys on ESPN Sunday went out of their way to praise Johnson as a person, so thats cool. The SEC has some outstanding basketball coaches.

10) One last thought on Shaka Smart-to-Texas: Smart made $1.8M at VCU LY; they offered him a raise to $2.8M, but he bolted to Texas for $3M a year. There is a thought process among some coaches (think Buzz Williams-- Marquette to Virginia Tech) that it is wise to align with a school that plays bigtime football, that the real money/security is there. It'll be interesting to follow, but it is unfair to say that Texas blew VCU out of the water financially.

9) Cavaliers are 31-7 in their last 38 games, so no one talks about them- they haven't lost at home since January 7.

8) NBA handicapping trend: Celtics are 10-1 vs spread on the road, when they played at home the previous night.

7) Would love to know how Brad Stevens likes coaching in the NBA, as compared to college. Getting Butler to the national title game two years in a row is one of the great achievements in recent college history. Boston is #8 in the East right now; Stevens can have his choice of college jobs, if he wants that.

6) As if this season hasn't been dismal enough for the Knicks, you watch the Cavaliers on TV and see JR Smith being a huge part of their success. Yikes.

5) How is Bo Ryan not in the basketball Hall of Fame? Four national titles at the D-3 level, two Final Fours in D-1-- he's not a Hall of Famer? Bull.

4) Texas Rangers employed professional ball shaggers in spring training; they pay guys to suit up, go out in the field and shag balls during batting practice, so players don't have to do that. Not that modern ballplayers are pampered or anything. No infield practice during the season, now no shagging. Oy.

3) Reds' 3B Todd Frazier is from Toms River, NJ; his walk-up music is very Jersey: "Best is Yet to Come" by Frank Sinatra.

2) I feel bad for Kentucky's players; they had a great year, winning 38 games in a row, but all anyone will remember is the one loss.

1) Cardinals 3, Cubs 0-- Was great to watch game that counts; Chicago could have used a third baseman who can hit. Too bad they don't have anyone like that in their farm sys-- oh wait, forget I said anything.

Braves trade Kimbrel, Upton to Padres

The Atlanta Braves have traded Craig Kimbrel and Melvin Upton Jr. to the San Diego Padres for Matt Wisler, Carlos Quentin, Cameron Maybin and Jordan Paroubeck, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

As a part of the deal, the Braves will also receive the Padres' 41st pick in the 2015 draft.

Kimbrel recorded 47 saves out of 51 opportunities while allowing just 11 earned runs in 2014. The 26-year-old also finished with a microscopic 1.61 ERA.

Prior to the deal, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook had Atlanta's regular season win total at 73.5. The book tabbed San Diego with a number of 84.


Nationals have had Mets number

The Washington Nationals have been the class of the National League East and no one knows it better than the New York Mets, with the Mets losing 45 of the last 60 meetings between the teams.

Washington and New York open the 2015 season against each other Monday, with the Mets' Bartolo Colon facing the Nationals newly acquired ace Max Scherzer. The Nationals are currently -192 favorites.


Kershaw dominated Padres in 2014

Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers open the 2015 season against an opponent he dominated in 2014, the San Diego Padres.

Kershaw went 3-0 with a 1.08 ERA in three starts against the Padres in 2014, while San Diego hitters managed a .110 batting average.

While the Padres rebuilt their team this offseason with the acquisitions of Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and James Shields among others, the Dodgers are still -185 home favorites for the opener.


Rockies struggled on the road most of last season

The Colorado Rockies were miserable on the road for most of last season, going 9-43 in their last 52 road games in the 2014 season, and that is exactly where they will open 2015.

The begin 2015 with a three-game series in Milwaukee, where Kyle Kendrick gets the Opening Day call for the Rockies, currently listed at +140.

The Brewers will counter with right hander Kyle Lohse.

MLB's hottest baseball bets in Opening Week
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some teams seem to always be ready to go from Game 1 while others need a while to shake off the winter rust. Here are three teams that have been sharp during Opening Week of the season:

Stats as of past 12 seasons

Best Opening Week

Los Angeles Dodgers (41-31 in Opening Week)

Opening opponents: vs. San Diego, at Arizona

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Dodgers this season. They are 4/11 to win the NL West, 3/1 to grab the Pennant and 6/1 to win the World Series. The club has traditionally been a solid starter out of the gate and gets things cooking right off the bat with a three-game set versus the San Diego Padres.

Oakland Athletics (41-31 in Opening Week)

Opening opponents: vs. Texas, vs. Seattle

The A’s are known for their late-season pushes, turning up the intensity in the home stretch of the schedule. But Oakland is just as good out of the blocks, winning 58 percent of its Opening Week games over the past 12 seasons. The Athletics went 3-3 in their first two series last April and begins this season with a four-game series versus the Texas Rangers

Cincinnati Reds (39-30 in Opening Week)

Opening opponents: vs. Pittsburgh, vs. St. Louis

Cincinnati stumbled out of the gate last season with a 2-4 record versus the Cardinals and at the Mets, but are still a decent bet during the first week. As slugger Joey Votto goes, so go the Reds and the NL Central club needs the first baseman to play in a lot more than the 62 games he played in 2014. Cincy begins the season at home with three games versus the Pirates and three against the Cards.

A-Rod at DH, batting seventh for Yankees

NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez is in the New York Yankees lineup for Opening Day, batting seventh and serving as designated hitter.

Rodriguez returns from a suspension that spanned all of the 2014 season for admitted to receiving and using performance-enhancing drugs from a Florida clinic.

Manager Joe Girardi said he is expected a mixed reaction from the Yankee Stadium crowd.

Rodriguez reported to spring training in February and issued a vague apology for "past mistakes," but did not directly address performance-enhancing drugs.


Betting stat of the day: A's on miserable Opening Day drought

The Oakland Athletics have lost 10 consecutive Opening Day games heading into Monday's season opener against the Texas Rangers at O.co Coliseum. Furthermore, the A's have lost five-consecutive in front of their home fans.

Oakland's last win on Opening Day came in the 2004 season when it prevailed over the Rangers by a score of 5-4.

Last season, A's righty Sonny Gray tossed six innings of five hit ball before the pen surrendered a pair of runs in the top of the ninth en route to a 2-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

Gray is the A's probable starter Monday, while the Rangers are slated to counter with Yovani Gallardo.

At the time of writing, the A's were -150 home faves.
