On line sports gambling handicappers are not exactly full of optimism, however, regarding the sports gambling prospects of the 2010 Arizona Diamondbacks. Arizona finished the 2009 on line sports gambling season with a record of 70-92 and finished dead last in the National League West Division.
The sportsgambling prospects for 2010 are not much better and could even get worse. The Diamondbacks were one of the biggest money losers on the board last season.
Arizona finished 20th overall for total run production while finishing 19th in the major leagues for staff earned run average. The Diamondbacks are young and rebuilding.
The one bright spot regarding the 2009 on line sports gambling season is that they were able to give their “Kiddie Corps” plenty of innings and that may translate into better performance and more confidence for 2010.
Number one starter Brandon Webb will return after missing nearly all of the 2009 on line sports gambling season. Webb was phenomenal in 2008 with a record of 22-7 and a 3.30 earned run average as he was one of the elite starting pitchers in all of on line sports gambling. His return could be a big boost if he returns to form.
Right hander Dan Haren was one of the few bright spots for Arizona in 2009 as he finished with a record of 14-10 and a 3.14 earned run average. Haren has a career earned run average of 3.61 along with a 79-62 record.
Closer Chad Qualls had a decent year for the Diamondbacks in 2009 as he had 24 saves in 25 chances with a 3.63 earned run average for his most effective season ever in that role.
Third baseman Mark Reynolds was the top man in the lineup last year as he hit .260 but with plenty of power as he had 44 home runs and 102 runs batted in.
While there are some players on the team the Diamondbacks lack depth and experience to make a serious run at anything for 2010.
