O/U came out today, at least at some spots. Surprised we’re that low. I would’ve guessed us, Reds, Cardinals and Brewers would all be in the 79-82 range and there wouldn’t be that large a gap between us and those 3.

I like the over on the Twins at 88.5 a lot. That division is still dog crap, so them and the White Sox are going to have pretty inflated win totals.

Wow at the Dodgers number. I'd take the over on the Cubs.

I bet that *at least* ties records for most HR in your first two ab's and RBI in your first two ab's.

I feel confident in this bet if anyone wants to take it.

This Kevin Mather story is pretty big. Feel like it should have its own thread, or at least open up the discourse in the "never side with ownership" thread
