Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?

Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?

Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?Back in the last part of the 2013 MLB season and in between the 2014 spring training camps, the Yankees of New York vowed some $440 million dollars to 4 of their players with the goal of getting a return on that investment. To date, they have not made a playoff game and have recouped very little on that sizeable investment.

That is not necessarily a sign of poor negotiations, but the true value has not been revealed to date. The 4 players that were signed in these high value deal were: Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Masahiro Tanaka and Jacoby Ellsbury.

In those days the Yankees passed on renewing the contract of R. Cano and the deal he demanded of 10 years, and that’s when the 4 players in McCann, Beltran, Tanaka and Ellsbury became New York Yankees.

According to most sportsbook review websites ,the Yankees after signing the mention 4 players for some $440 million to long term deals, and again did not make the playoffs in the 2014 season. This 20015 season at the All-Star break finds the Yankees in a dogfight for the top spot in the AL East with 4 other teams, in a very competitive division.

Of the 4 players that signed before the start of 2014, only one, McCann, is proving his worth; while the other 3 have been affected by injury problems or saddled with not performing to par. The problem here, is that normally in long term deals the player are expected to have their top performances in the early years of the contract. That’s because in a long extended contract, the team will normally experience fewer returns on their investment in most cases.

Ellsbury is on the 2nd year of his $153 million 7 year contract and is on the Yankees disabled list at present, and has not played in a game since back on the 19th on May 2015. He also had injury problems in 2014 but played mediocre, and this season to date actually played 37 games and missed 40 games to date.

For Beltran his 2014 season was not spectacular, as he only average .233 at the bat having 50 RBIs and some 15 homeruns for the season and due to an elbow injury did not play in 53 games and in the offseason had surgery on his elbow. This 2015 he seemed healthier and hitting .262 with 31 RBIs and 7 HRs in his 66 games to date, but remember he’s 38 and has 1 additional year on his $47 million dollar contract.

But their 4th player and pitcher Tanaka is the player that is the most frustrating case for the Yankees, as he was signed with the reputation of being a incredible starting pitcher who was given a 7 year contract for some $155 million, and that does not count his signing fee of $20 million.

For those that Bet on MLB at an online Sportsbook, you may remember Tanaka was the certified Japanese Ace with an ERA of 2.30 and a record of 99-35 playing for the Golden Eagles of Rakuten for some seven seasons. In his first season, at least the 1st half of that season it appeared he would duplicate his past in the USA. Then the unthinkable happened when he encountered a torn ligament in his pitching elbow, that took place on the 8th of July against the Indians, and since he has not performed to his potential.

Overall the Yankees management and Manager Cashman said their deal was made, and there’s no going back, and now we can only look for the future to bring us success, and hope it will not be a bust of monumental proportions.


MLB Betting Recap – Phillies Rout Orioles 19-3!

phillies rout orioles 19-3With the 2015 MLB Season moving closer to the All-Star break in July, the games and players seem to be performing some incredible game changes. This past Tuesday the 16th of July 2015 we saw the Phillies of Philadelphia (22-44) get beat by the Orioles of Baltimore (33-31) with the final score Orioles 19 and the Phillies 3.

The winning pitcher was Tillman who is 5-7 and the losing pitcher was Williams who is now 3-7. This win was the Orioles 8th win in their last 9 games.

This loss for Philadelphia matched a loss record that had stood for some 132 years for the franchise.  There were 8 home runs hit in the game, with the Oriole compiling 17 hits and 1 error, while the Phillies had 6 hits and made 2 errors in the game.
Two Phillies players in M. Machado and C. Parmelee both hit 2 HR’s totaling 4 HR’s of the Orioles 8 HR’s in the game.  A baseball team that has 8 homers in 8 innings like the Orioles did in this 19-3 rout of the Phillies, it then appears that most of the starting roster had a good day in that outing.

The Phillies remark that seemed to represent the team was that it was the worst road trip, they had taken as of late. That prime comment came from their pitcher who finished the last two innings for Philadelphia. The Oriole have had 7 home runs in 3 different games previously, with the last time being back in September of 2012 playing at Toronto, but this is the first time for 5 HR’s in a game.

The game did not start well for the Phillies as the Orioles Machado hit his 2nd pitch from starting pitcher Williams into the seats in the left field of the stadium, and that started a 6 run 1st inning for the Orioles, and that headed the Phillies to losing their 12th straight road game.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.agParamelee, a newcomer to the Orioles roster on that same day had 4 hits that included 2 homers, as he also had 2 RBI’s and scored three runs in the game.  The Orioles pitcher Tillman in his 6 innings allowed some 4 hits and 3 runs in his 3rd start this season that lasted through some 6 innings.

Meanwhile, the starting pitcher Williams for the Phillies left the game very early with an injury, after a struggling 1st inning where he only got 2 outs. D. McGowan came in and gave up 5 homeruns in the 3 1/3 innings that he pitched. Their next pitcher Fratus was ejected by the home plate umpire in the 6th, thus the Phillies pitching staff overall had a horrendous outing.

For those that Bet on MLB at an Online sportsbook or at other betting sites, you should know that the Phillies in this 2015 season have the worst overall record at 22 wins and 44 losses in the MLB, and on their road games they have 7 wins and 28 losses, signifying that their home record is 15 wins and 16 losses for the 2015 season to date.
