The baseball season keeps rolling along, but we could see a lot of significant changes this week. MLB is expected to crack down more and more on illegal substances on the baseball beginning this week and we’ve seen an increase in offense and a decrease in spin rate already as a result of the shot across the bow. Host Adam Burke used this edition of The Bettor’s Box to talk about spin rate decreases, pitchers and teams most affected, some other regression candidates, and a preview of some games for this weekend.

Host Adam Burke was back on the air with a new edition of The Bettor’s Box and we have a hell of a lot to talk about on each and every show right now. Adam talked about some spin rate decreases from this last round of starts, why we have to be careful not to read too much into it, and some teams and bullpens that might be most at risk. Adam also looked at some Cluster Luck indicators of pitchers that have done well with the bases empty and not with men on base and vice versa.
After looking at all that pitching stuff, Adam took a look at some line movements that we’ve seen over the past few days, gave out a couple of picks for Monday night’s action, and then previewed five series and a few pitching matchups of interest to end the show. Adam hit on Rays vs. White Sox, Padres vs. Rockies, Tigers vs. Royals, Yankees vs. Blue Jays, and then a couple specific pitching matchups.
Join Adam on Tuesday with Brian Blessing to talk NHL Playoffs and US Open.
