Dats right frents, I’m BACK!!! Betting EVERY SEASON WIN TOTAL at Pointsbet.com (PROMO CODE: 108ing) then go and check out the NL CENTRAL, AL WEST and NL WEST. Now let’s move on to today’s division, the AL East!!
New York Yankees UNDER 95.5
I still think the Yankees are the easy favorite to win the AL Pennant, but 96 wins is a tough fucking order in a division that has continued to get better with the Blue Jays now being a legit contender and the Red Sox sliding back up to mediocrity after a down year last year. The main parts are still here, but they are all a year older. DJ LeMahieu signed back, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge are both coming back off of injury riddled seasons. Gleybar Torres and Gary Sanchez are still around in varying forms of what you thought they might become.
THE PROBLEM is all the weight on Gerrit Cole to hold down this pitching staff. It’s D’Angelo Barksdale all over again. They seem like minor losses, but Masahiro Tanaka and JA Happ took the ball. I’m not sure with these current Yankees. They probably still win this division. They likely get more out of Judge and Stanton than in 2020, but I still look at this team and struggle to see how they fill out 1450 innings pitched without some gambles.
Toronto Blue Jays UNDER 86.5
There are infinite Rick and Morty universes in which this looks like a very stupid fucking pick and the Blue Jays run away with this division on the strength of their young offensive talent and the bounce backs of their middling starting rotation. I just don’t think that’s the average outcome. Look, I love Vladimir Guerrero Jr. he’s #108thicc and he’s gonna be a start. I thought George Springer was a near perfect signing for this team to anchor this up and coming offense. I also have a gigantic man crush on the thicc lefty Hyun Jin Ryu, he’s beautiful.
This team NEEDED perfect health and performance from Ryu to make the playoffs last year and although that DID happen over 60 games last year, it feels like a longer odds bet to happen again. Kirby Yates is already on the shelf for 2021, which pushes each person up one on an already sketchy pen. Look, maybe Bo Bichette and crew bash their way through this anyways and truthfully, if I had bet this three weeks ago, I am going over. Right now, I just think it’s a good, young, risky ass roster. Even with me thinking Vladito probably becomes a star this year. I gotta go UNDA!
Tampa Bay Rays OVER 86.5
Only the Tampa Bay Rays could trade away their ace Blake Snell and effectively add nobody of consequence and still be a well above average team. I applaud the way the Rays figure out little advantages all over the diamond in order to constantly win at the margins. I also throw bouquets at them for their ability to identify talent in all the various markets and have you scratching your head on their trades until Randy Arozarena hits like Babe Ruth in the 2020 playoffs. What I absolutely don’t approve of is them effectively rent seeking and never spending enough money to be the generational franchise they really should be. This should be baseball’s version of the New England Patriots, but alas, clipping coupons is more important.
This team has depth, even the “depth is a myth” crowd of White Sox twitter realize this team has depth. Their 40 man roster is bustling with players that could help basically everyone AND they have the #1 prospect in all of baseball sitting just outside of their 40 man in Wander Franco, ready as reinforcements. The Rays also have upside, Tyler Glasnow is flying up high stakes fantasy baseball draft boards right now, maybe this is the year he finally wins a Cy Young. Austin Meadows was looking all-world back in 2019 before the injury bug bit him. Does he return to form. We haven’t even mentioned their likely best player Brandon Lowe. They’re deep. DEEP!
Boston Red Sox UNDER 79.5
The Red Sox were terrible last year and while I expect less terribleness Rafael Devers and JD Martinez to return to old form, the subtractions of Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley Jr. are no doubt going to hurt. The starting pitching was a problem last year and they didn’t reinforce it much. Chris Sale should be back midsummer but I doubt it’s enough to push this team above .500. I think it’s going to be one more down year for the BoSox until they start hurling gobs of money at the free agent market again and competing with the Yankees and Blue Jays and Rays, oh my!
Baltimore Orioles UNDER 63.5
The Orioles are in full on, early 2010’s Houston Astros tank mode. They are trying their best to pick first. I only need to provide you one tweet as evidence of this theory.
