Love the site, but the Red Sox at -112 actually makes them the favorite in today's game. -112 means you would have to bet 112 to win 100 on the Sox. Conversely, the Orioles are around +103 if you take the average of the lines on your link, meaning you would win 103 if you bet 100 on them. Lester's recent signs of life combined with Hammel's horrendous season seem to be enough for the oddsmakers to make us slight favorites even though we're playing in B-More.

@Denton Hahaha, just trying to look on the bright side, the good part about the whole league being decent is that the pack stays together and teams are never out of it. Good start to the second half tonight against the White Sox; my friend and his whole family had the 17+ person Yoooouuukkk sign out in the OF.

Denton,Only once in the 5-division era has 93 wins not been good enough for sole possession of 5th in the AL: 2002, when 4 teams won 94 games or more, and Boston and Seattle tied for 5th with 93 wins. Those high wins totals were inflated by 3 sub .400 winning percentage teams, and one sub .415 winning percentage team. Only 2 teams in the AL currently have sub .415 winning percentages, and none are below .400, or seem likely to be (maybe MIN). Therefore I would contend that 93 wins will almost certainly be enough to make the WC playoff game.Love the blog.
