Adam Wainwright continues being a dominating pitcher. How many more years does he have to be an elite pitcher to start thinking of him as a Hall of Fame pitcher?

How much does closing out the 2006 World Series add to his lore?

How much does missing the 2011 Series take away from it?

That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Josh Donaldson, Carlos Ruiz, Corey Kluber, Bartolo Colon, Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon Cumpton and Dayan Viciedo all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Odds To Win The 2014 MLB Divisions Currently: Cincinnati Is the Best Odd Value On The Board

This website told everyone a few weeks ago not to worry about the "Nati.  They were victims of some 1 run losses - and untimely slumps.  Heading into play today, the team has squared its record at 11 - 11, after starting the year 3 - 8.  Hamilton is hitting, Votto has thrived in the #2 slot, and Bruce and Phillips will break out eventually.  Cueto and Cingrani have looked great.  For this team, who trails the Cards by just 0.5 GB, to have a +750 odd to win the NL Central is a steal - and the best bet on the board this week.  The Reds do trail the Brewers by 5 games, however when you read the oddsmakers, they are still heavily favoring the Cards to win the division.

After about 13% of the schedule now gone in the MLB, the parity in the AL is crazy.  Only the Mariners and Astros have failed to register 10 wins apiece yet.

Most of the teams in the NL are still alive for everything – all but they DBacks and Cubs.

I am not sure the Marlins will stick around for a long time either, but they have ridden a great home record to be right at near .500.

The Tigers have significant holes at SS, and the Bullpen has been shaky, opening up the door to the rest of the division so far.

The Dodgers have been stymied by lackluster play from their superstars – and are still awaiting Clayton Kershaw’s arrival.

For each division I have highlighted the best odd for the team out of the 5.  Again, this doesn’t mean I like them to win the division, it means I like the value. Read the rest of this entry
