Blue Jays 110-1 to win World Series.

....at Stations Casinos here in Las Vegas. They're as square and shitty of any book here in town.

I know the Jays don't have much of a shot being in that division, but I don't see this team any higher than even 60-1 offshore.

Stranger things have happened, seems like a ton of value for a team that has finished with at least 85 wins in four of the last five years.

Strasburg and Huff

Everyone has already fell in love with this kid and with great reason. He definitely lived up to the hype. No question.

Tomorrow, won't be quite the media circus he experienced in his debut. I'm sure that will only help him..

But, the Nats bats haven't exactly been on fire their past six games. Didn't exactly light up the Pirates, and have shit the bed so far in Cleveland.

Laugh all you want at Huff, he's been a terd, but has had quite a few quality starts in his career at Progressive Field. Throw out his previous two road starts when capping this game.

He shut down a red hot and confident Red Sox squad last week. Prior to that at home he took care of the streaking Reds at home. He's been getting the ground balls at home as well.

No way am I saying the Indians win, but at this price, factoring in Cleveland's bats warming up, I just can't justify laying 2 bills on the Nats tomorrow.

Maybe a low scoring shitfest, who knows but The Tribe looks pretty live at this INFLATED price.

White Sox........

I see the Twins coming out and playing dead flat tomorrow. They knew that they had to sweep the Tigers over the weekend to catch them for the division.

The Twins blew their wad when they came back in the 8th against Verlander's bullpen. They let down on Sunday, now have to travel to Chicago basically realizing that their season realistically ended on Sunday.

The White Sox finally showed up on Sunday. I'm sure Ozzie will remind them that Nick Blackburn beat them 20-3 at the Cell a few months back.

Kansas City Royals Future...

What's up everyone. Every year I like to pick one team's future at a decent price and follow them the whole year. I actually had the Tigers a few years back at 175-1 for the Series. Ouch.

Anyways, I know that any value is basically gone these days thanks to the Tigers and Rays coming in recently.

I can get 100-1 on KC at Matchbook right now. Terrible value but like I said their is just not a lot of value out there this year. Just wanted to get some thoughts from some of you guys who know your shit in here.

I love the Royals lineup. The addition of Coco Crisp was one of the more underated transactions in the offseason. Great clubhouse guy and just what the Rolals needed.

I think Alex Gordon has the chance to have a breakout year. Maybe Teahen can get his head out of his ass. Billy Butler can mash. I like the addition of Jacobs from the Marlins.

Greinke and Meche are a solid 1-2. Hocheaver is an up and comer. Bullpen looks decent with Farnsworth, Mahay, Bale, and,Peralta. Soria has a chance to be one of the best closers in the league.

Being an Indians fan, I see them being a little over valued this year. Tigers suck. White Sox will not be as good as last year. Twins are always there.

Bottomline is I think you can win this division with about 88 wins. I see things changing in Missouri this year and would not be surprised to see this team compete at the highest level this year.

Opinions appreciated.........
