The odds are in for the LCS match ups.The odds are not flaringly one-sided as one might expect.

Boston vs Colorado Springs: Boston got to the big game by downing heavy weights Anaheim and Texas. That is a big feat in itself beating two 90+ win teams, still the odds for Boston are only a measly 1-1. Colorado Springs had a first round bye and only had to get by KC to get to the big AL show which they did with a sweep. Odds makers weren't generous as they are only showing a bit of favoritizm with a 2-1 placement.

Atlanta vs Chicago: Atlanta got by the Mets who showed some gumption. The final game of that series took both of us by surprise as I was predicting either a 4-2 win of 6-3 loss but favored the Braves, at least I got the favor portion right. Then a wild encore performance with LA where the Dodgers, couldn't hit or score runs. Chicago got a bye for the first round and had to put up with the antics of Mexico City who just slapped the Reds around. Although that series went 4 games, Mexico City didn't pose much of a challenge. The odds makers are only giving the Cubs a 2-1 edge while the Braves garnered 1-1 odds. 


There are better odds that Burke Moss could be the NL series MVP which now stands at 4-1.

The Cubs wore green hats yesterday with their game with Oakland, maybe they should have went with green socks or something for the Irish thing as the caps were disgusting and unimaginative.
