Baseball betting: Diamondbacks latest Arizona team to impress!
Posted by nick_niesen on October 27th Roquan Smith Bears Jersey , 2010

Last week I praised Bobby Cox and his Atlanta Braves on their 6-3 road trip and suggested they were beginning to play like manager Cox聮s previous NL East teams. Then the Dodgers and Arizona came to Turner Field and suddenly the Braves are 1-6 on this current homestand.

The Braves got swept by Arizona on the weekend and the Diamondbacks are beginning to play great ball and this comes on the heels of the Phoenix Suns getting turfed from the NBA Playoffs.

Before the Diamondbacks departed on a 10-game trip, manager Bob Melvin called the excursion to Cincinnati, New York and Atlanta a measuring stick that would give his team an idea of just how good it really is.

After finishing it off with a 7-3 record, topped by a four-game sweep of the Braves at Turner Field, the results are in: Arizona is a pretty good ballclub and just might do a little bit more than hang around at the top of the National League West.

The four-game sweep over the Braves marked just the third time in Diamondbacks history that they have accomplished such a feat on the road. The 7-3 record Roquan Smith Kids Jersey , meanwhile, ties a club mark for the best trip of a road campaign involving at least 10 games.

The pitching staff posted a 2.35 ERA during the 10 games, allowing 24 earned runs in 92 innings, and in the past three games alone, the offense has delivered 10 home runs. Overall Roquan Smith Youth Jersey , the Diamondbacks outscored their opponents 56-24.

The Diamondbacks continue to get sterling performances from their starting pitchers, as Sunday's 9-3 win over the Braves marked the 13th "quality start" from the rotation in the past 15 games. Right-hander Miguel Batista was the latest to work at least six innings and allow three or fewer runs, and during this particular stretch, the starters have fashioned a 1.94 ERA.

Batista, who allowed three earned runs through 6 23 innings in improving to 6-2 Roquan Smith Womens Jersey , got help from an offense that pounded out 14 hits and four home runs for the second consecutive day. The Diamondbacks swept the Braves in four games at Turner Field, the first time that's happened to Atlanta at home or on the road since the Phillies did it to them in 1995.

RHP Brandon Webb needs to pitch 2 23 scoreless innings when he starts Monday against the visiting Phillies to establish a Diamondbacks record for pitching consecutive scoreless innings. Webb is on 25 and counting. Andy Benes holds the club mark with 27 13 straight scoreless frames during the team's inaugural season in 1998.

.099 聴 Eric Byrnes' batting average differential on June 1, 2006, compared to June 1, 2005. Byrnes hit .226 after the first two months of the season last year and after June 1 this year Authentic Roquan Smith Jersey , was hitting .325. It's the biggest jump of any player in the major leagues.

VANCOUVER, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Voters in Vancouver who turned out in strong numbers Saturday have handed the Canadian west coast city's incumbent mayor Gregor Robertson a third straight term in office.

The 50-year-old mayor, running under the Vision Vancouver banner, defeated first-time candidate and former media manager Kirk LaPointe by more than 10,000 votes to secure another four years for his green agenda that has brought on several eco- friendly changes in the city.

Robertson Roquan Smith Jersey , well known across Canada for his good looks and passion for the environment, called the victory a "humbling and exciting" experience at his downtown Vancouver victory celebration late Saturday night.

Observers had predicted a tighter race as complaints had been mounting in recent years that Robertson had forgone public consultation on high-density residential developments in what have been traditionally single-family neighborhoods around the city.

The criticism that Robertson and his Vision team had become too cozy with wealthy developers appears to have done little to slow his political momentum.

"Six years ago we took up the challenge of leading our city in an new direction," Robertson told his cheering supporters. "We took on the most important issues of our time -- homelessness, climate change, affordability. We committed to lead, not follow."

The mayor highlighted his green agenda and his goal to shift Vancouver's economy away from its reliance on natural resources toward more high-tech industries. "We have become one of the world 's greenest cities and are working our way to the top," he said. " Vancouver today is more fun, more vibrant and more creative than ever before."

An estimated 44 percent of voters turned out for the election, which also included the selection of the city's 10-member city council. Early indications after the polls closed was a voter turnout of 43.6 percent, a major upswing from the 2011 election which saw a meager 34.6 percent of voters cast ballots. The city's all-time high turnout came in 1934 when 55 percent of eligible residents took part in the city's election.

The poll result signals that Vancouver has become a bastion of liberal and social values that is at odds with the conservative ideology that has taken hold at the provincial and federal levels in British Columbia and Canada#7# said Maxwell Cameron, a professor of Political Science at the University of British Columbia.

"There is a very strong basis of pro-environmentalism and progressive voters in Vancouver," Cameron told Xinhua. "There are people here who are just not happy with the direction the country has gone in, and are not prepared to abandon their mayor at this point."

"It very much feels that what is going on in this civic election is the dry run for the next federal election," he said.

Since 2008#8# Robertson has been seen as a politician with a fairly progressive agenda and has attempted to address housing affordability and homelessness, while also trying to build a more .
