We're Not Worst!

The bookies have spoken, and Vegas Watch has the results. The over/under for the Nats is 71.5 wins.

I'm taking the over.

They have the Marlins at 68.5 with the Mets as the favorites in the division. Baltimore is worst at 65. Three teams are belows us (Pittsburgh being the other) though Tampa Bay (over!) and San Fran (under!) are just .5 games ahead.

See anyone you'd take? Colorado's a tough call at 83! 94 for Boston? Under, I'd guess? But I wouldn't bet a lot on that!


  • One word on the Nats and 71-1/2:

  • Unrelated but....

    JimBo on the Brett Boone minor league signing.

  • Re the O's and 65 wins: under, I think.

    Now, on the line that's headed "Maximum Total Runs Scored By Team and Opponents in One Game During the 2008 Season," even if the O's number is 33, there I take the over.

  • What could be better than beating Baltimore all season long?

    Last year we happened to be flipping channels and caugh the last innings that 31 to 3 game with the Rangers.

    My wife got a look at the score, did the double take, and then saw the last homerun fly out of the park.

    She put best when she casually said, "Oh, good. I hope there were men on base."

    GO NATS!

  • If I were a betting man, I'd take:

    over on 92.5 for the Mets
    under on 73.5 for the Astros (don't like their pitching/depth)
    over on 73.5 for the Twins (I think they'll have improvements from minor contributors like Punto that will add up to give them at least 75 wins, making up for the loss of Santana/Hunter/Silva)
