Kansas City Royals - Chicago White Sox Breakdown
Breaking down the 7-5 extra innings win by the White Sox.
Angel Berroa Sucks
In case you are wondering, we still hate Angel Berroa. What a fag. With first and third only one-out, he grounds into a double play. After having 8 LOBs the previous time we bet on them. They sat his sorry ass down for like 5 games. Why did they have to put him back the day we bet on the Royals? Then again, he did hit a solo-HR that helped the Royals get to extra innings but stating that just ruins our point :-)
We felt the Royals were giving us 40 points of value. That means they should have been a +115 team today. For them to get to extra innings is definitely very good but they got to finish the job for once in their sorry lives.
The Royals have the worst bullpen in baseball. The chances of them winning a game that goes into extra innings is slim to none. They have had countless leads going late into ball games and lost it because of the bullpen.
Avoid Bad Bullpen Teams
You obviously want to avoid bad bullpen teams. Especially when the spread is around Pick' Em. This is because the games are close and the bullpens become a better factor in determining a win/loss. We still took the Royals despite their bad bullpen because we were getting a grip of value by betting on them at +155. But we would have considered a stronger play if their bullpen did not suck.
