Odds To Win The 2016 MLB World Series: Price Is Right For Boston – But Not The Odds!

So with news of David Price signing with the Sox – this has changed the landscape of the AL East. The oddsmakers jumped them from +1600 last week – to now at +1000. That is a huge leap.
The Yankees dropped from +1800 to +2000, but yet the Jays kept up as the overall MLB favorite to win the Fall Classic in 2016. This is wrong without the Canadian franchise making another significant signing.
One would say that Boston inking the Lefty Price has swung the momentum to their side like happened with Toronto this last year.
I would still be leery of wagering that much cabbage on the Boston squad early. There is not much value there yet. You are still talking about a club that finished last in the AL East – making a few moves, and now find themselves tied for the 3rd best off to win the World Series.
All of our writers and personalities on this website mentioned the best AL East team would be the one who made deals throughout the season to improve last campaign.
Toronto must counter with another move to regain the top spot in my view. Their +800 odd is now the worst on the board. However if they are able to sign an offensive bat like Chris Davis, or decide to trade for another ace pitcher at some point in 2016, they should be reinstated as the AL East prohibitive favorite.
The Tigers made a nice signing in Jordan Zimmermann. This almost looks like a trade now with Max Scherzer and Zimmerman trading respective teams in back to back offseasons. Detroit also spent $100 MIL less than the Nats in the process.
I love the Detroit Tigers at +2200 as a result of this move. I still think the Motown boys should sign one more veteran pitcher to reclaim the AL Central. I would love to see them ink a Scott Kazmir – or re-sign a guy like Doug Fister.
Kansas City did not suffer a hit on their respective odds for the move, and as such – should be stayed away from for this weeks odds.
