MLB June 10th – David Ortiz is Recovering from Being Shot

David Ortiz was shot in the back in his native Dominican Republic on Sunday. The Boston Red Sox are paying for him to be transported by air to Massachusetts for treatment. David Ortiz is one of my top 5 favorite players of all-time. I’ll never forget being at his two home-run game against the Athletics in April 2012.. or his many post-season runs. The video of his shooter getting beat up is NSFW.. but I will post it here

Wild scenes in the Dominican Republic. Ortiz has done a lot for his home country, but it is never enough for some people. The rumor is they were trying to rob him. Sad. The suspect is in custody. Onto lighter topics..

92-83 on MLB last season and went up 34.31 units

17-14 on MLB this season up 1.10 units

Tampa Bay Rays at -180 for 3 units. Charlie Morton is 7-0 this season. Morton has one of the highest velocities on average in the MLB this season. He’s got the stuff. Tanner Anderson, the starter for Oakland tonight, had a 6.26 ERA in AAA. Now he plays one of the better MLB teams so far this season. Anderson went to Harvard.. so at least he has that going for him. What a nerd.

Los Angeles Dodgers -1½ at +100 for 2 units. LAD has covered -1.5 in Hyun-Jin Ryu’s last 6 starts. Ryu has one of the best strikeout cutters in baseball. Griffin Canning is starting for the Angels. He is a rookie and the blue team’s lineup should feast on him. If you missed Max Muncy making MadBum mad last time out, check out the instagram. It is a pretty awesome homer and interaction. Muncy hit the ball about 430 feet into the Bay and told MadBum “to get it out of the ocean”. Muncy may not know the geography of the Bay very well… but he yacked that ball so well he can call it the ocean for all I care.

NBA Finals Game 5

7-5 on the NBA playoffs up 3.55 units

Warriors +1.5 at -110 for 9 units. Raptors have worked Golden State over these past two games, but I think tonight is a lot closer of a game. Looney and Thompson should play better in their second game back from injury. Draymond Green, Steph, and the NBA want this series to go at least 6 games. KD may or may not be back.. but I think he will and this line will move to Warriors -1 or -2 once he is declared active. The Raptors used a 37 point third quarter to put away the Warriors 105-92 in Game 4. Golden State knows they have to come out stronger after halftime. Golden State hasn’t scored over 109 points in this series. I think they break that number in this one.

Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors will score 24 or more points at -110 for 2 units. I said it last game… If the Warriors want to win, Klay has to score. He did score and they lost. I like this prop even more if KD is out.
