9 days ago I posted my last article on these odds. One of my captions was to pick the Mariners at +4000 for a couple of bucks considering they may land Robinson Cano.
If they were to trade for David Price (by packaging Taijuan Walker, Nick Franklin, another prospect and maybe a relief pitcher, they would have 3 dominant top pitchers, plus a young fireballer in James Paxton still.
This team would vaguely resemble the type of squad the Giants were in 2010. A great deal of pitching and a decent enough offense.
The third best value has to go with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies.
The D’Backs haven’t moved up despite picking up potential 40 HR man Mark Trumbo.
For the record, I am still predicting the LA Dodgers will represent the National League in the 2014 World Series, but they could battle injuries and lackluster play in any given season based on their temperament.
The worst odds on the board still reside for the Atlanta Braves, LA Angels and Toronto Blue Jays. Until the LA Angels pick up a 3rd OF, plus a DH – simply steer clear!
The Braves have not had a productive 2013 winter either. The Blue Jays are likely to finish no higher than 4th.
A couple of sleeper teams might also be the Pirates and Orioles, but they have to become active in Free Agency.
