Do Baseball Fans Have Skin in the Game?

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Do Baseball Fans Have Skin in the Game?

Sluggers Wanted at Caesars Online Casino! Even though it was 25 years ago, die-hard baseball fans likely remember when Pete Rose was banned for life because of his gambling.  This decision upset many baseball fans and some even say that it is time to lift this seemingly archaic ban.  Unfortunately, the MLB is known for their strict anti-gambling laws that many believe are unfair. Take A-Rod as a case in point.  In light of what is currently going on in other sporting leagues like the NFL where players are being charged with domestic violence and child abuse, being punished for gambling seems trivial.  However, the MLB still maintains its stance on gambling and continues to enforce that policy. Hopefully that will change in the future.  Fortunately, baseball fans are not subject to this anti-gambling policy and can enjoy exciting...

Best Way to Prevent Late Season Lopsided Trades

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Best Way to Prevent Late Season Lopsided Trades

The trading deadline has passed in MLB, but that often doesn’t stop the trading from happening in fantasy baseball.  In fact, from my experience, the trading deadline in MLB is the last day of July, but in many fantasy baseball leagues, you can make trades right up until the last day of August.  ESPN’s Standard Leagues allow trading through August 8.  After that, all you can do is move players up and down from your minor league squads. Many leagues allow for teams to return some or all of its players for the following season.  So, just like in real baseball, the contenders might be willing to trade a part-time player or Triple-A up-and-comer for a grizzled veteran that can help you win NOW.  Do I hear Derek Jeter’s name being mentioned as trade bait in your league?

Trading Bases: From Stocks and Shares to Bats and Balls

Posted by on Aug 10, 2014 in Promotional Considerations | Comments Off on Trading Bases: From Stocks and Shares to Bats and Balls

At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking trading on Wall Street and professional gambling were essentially the same thing. Comparisons are easy to come by and speculatively buying and selling stocks based on the prediction that the price will either go up or down is, in some ways gambling, albeit on a different playing field. Many highly successful traders started out as professional gamblers and it’s not uncommon to see world famous traders such as Seth Klarman and David Einhorn competing in major poker tournaments. It’s far less usual for a trader to quit Wall Street to become a professional gambler. But it does happen. Take the story of former Nomura Securities trader Joe Peta. Shortly after being hit by a car he was laid off, as he was recuperating he started working on a strategy for...

Single Game Betting

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in Promotional Considerations | 0 comments

Right now, many nations are doing what they can to stimulate their economies in the wake of the global economic crisis. Many nations are taking a watchful eye to their current practices to see where they can possibly find sectors that can be expanded creating more jobs as well as bringing additional revenue into the country. The country of Canada is doing just that. Currently, a bill is being sponsored that will change some archaic practices in regards to single game betting. As it stands now, single game betting is expressly forbidding within Canada. Citizens are unable to place sport bets on single sporting events. This includes popular sports such as baseball. What makes the situation even more interesting is that while single game betting is illegal; betting on multiple sporting games is not. Many argue that changing the...

Harleys are Hot

Posted by on Oct 17, 2011 in Promotional Considerations | 0 comments

It is the off season for baseball now.  Yes, the World Cup is even over and only the two World Series teams remain in action.  For many baseball players, it’s Harley Davidson season as they take a big time rest from the rigors of a 162 games schedule. It’s not surprising that so many baseball players love Harley Davidson bikes.  After all, baseball players are used to the best and when it comes to motorcycles, HD is the best.  By far. Baseball is such a long season.  A month worth of Spring Training and then the regular season and for the lucky ones, the post season.  With barely a day off each month.  It’s a grind. So, what better way to end the season than with a long ride on a Harley.  If a baseball player is looking for...
