06-03-2004, 10:22 AM

In a tailspin this week. Time to Post a Play Of The Day and breakout today. This week has felt like a backwards "K" each day.

CLEVELAND (22 - 27) at ANAHEIM (31 - 20): Play On The Anaheim Angles -139 6 Star 6/3/2004 9:05:00 PM

Thursday, 6/3/2004 CLIFTON LEE (L) vs. KELVIM ESCOBAR (R) Escobar will enter this game with an ERA of 3.15 over his last three starts, down from 4.21 for the season so he is getting back in better form. In those three starts vs the White Sox (road), Baltimore (home), and Baltimore (road) he as gone 20 IP giving up 19 hits 7 ER, 3 home runs, 8 walks while striking out 11 vs these heavy hitting teams. Since 97' ESCOBAR is 3-1 when starting against CLEVELAND with an ERA of 3.56 and a WHIP of 1.055. His team's record is 3-1 (+2.0 units) in these starts. Clifton Lee also comes in very strong for the Indians but in his 5 road starts the Indians are 2-3 while he is 1-0. His road ERA of 3.60 is up from his season ERA of 2.87 and he has at times had some control problems walking 17 in his 30 IP on the road. The Cleveland bullpen has been just plain bad this year and even worse on the road. For the season they have an ERA 6.12 overall and 8.90 on the road while the Angels bullpen has been great at home with an ERA of 1.72. CLEVELAND is 1-6 (-5.2 Units) against the money line in road games vs. AL teams scoring 5.2 or more runs/game on the season this season. The average score was CLEVELAND 5.1, OPPONENT 8.3 -. CLEVELAND is 1-8 (-7.8 Units) against the money line in road games vs. teams whose hitters strike out 6 or less times/game this season. The average score was CLEVELAND 5.8, OPPONENT 6.9 This will be a factor if Lee runs into control problem - . ANAHEIM is 9-0 (+10.3 Units) against the money line vs. a starting pitcher whose gives up 5.5 or less hits/start this season. The average score was ANAHEIM 7.3, OPPONENT 3.4 -. I also like this angle. I lost with a similar trend yesterday going against Clemens but I am going to stay with it one more time. Play Against - Any team (CLEVELAND) - with a starting pitcher who is undefeated after 5 or more starts, in June games. (27-11 over the last 5 seasons.) (71.1%, +20.4 units) I believe Escobar is heading in the right direction and with Lee being undefeated at 5-0 and being posted as a medium dog it really appears to me that the book is fishing for Indians money. I like the Angels chances to play some small ball with their speed, get Lee in trouble and get to the Indians bullpen which has stopped no one this year. I'm rolling with the Angels as my 6 Star Play Of The Day. This will be a 4.5% play.
