From 10/31 to today, the #stlcards odds of winning the 2020 World Series have shortened from 25/1 to 16/1, now same as Brewers, which were 14/1. Other NL Central clubs are unchanged – Cubs 20/1, Reds 33/1 and Bucs 100/1, all according to @betonline_ag.
Why do you say that? Look around the division. The Cubs have done nothing either. They lost Castellanos and the Cards lost Ozuna but St. Louis has better prospects close to the majors. The Brewers have lost a bunch of players and still have no starting pitching to speak of. The Reds have made some nice additions, but people said the same thing last year and they went on to finish 16 games behind the Cards. That is a lot of ground to make up. The Pirates are just depressing.
gsc…. I read the Dawson piece but the content doesn’t exactly fit the headline. Some stuff is reasonable to assume. At best its something to read in these dead spots of the off-season. I hope he is wrong about Reyes.
