Full disclosure, minus the moves the Redlegs have made I’ve paid zero attention to anything going on in the world of professional baseball. Gun to my head, I know the Cubs got Lester, Cepedes went to the Sox, and the Padres got a bunch of players, but outside of that, I might as well just start digging my own grave. Hard to get into baseball right now. Conference play is getting ready to start in college basketball and there’s more good football games on than I know what to do with, so forgive me if I’m not up to date on the latest and greatest news coming out of the AL West.
One thing I do know, however, is that whoever made this list probably had one too many glasses of eggnog last night, because these are the laziest and most absurd odds I’ve ever seen. I realize it’s only December and that’s how odds in December go, but you’re telling me the Tribe are gonna have a better team than the Padres? I appreciate the confidence boost, guys, but you really think my Reds who are abandoning ship are really worth that 22/1 shot?
I think we can all agree that the 12/1 Mets odds are a typo, right? Again, I don’t live and die with each move the Wilpon family makes, but the fact that anyone actually thinks that the Mets chances to win the ship are on par the the Tigs this year is laughable.
PS- Hey Miami, how bad does it suck knowing that this is the year you’re going “all in” and you’re still staring at 40-1 odds? That’s like the kid from high school you see on Facebook that starts in on that whole “new year, new me” bullshit, and you’re all like, “nah, player. Not a chance.”
Double PS- Give me $100 on the D’Backs at 125/1. Yea it’s a long shot but crazier things have happened. Scared money don’t make money.
