Betting the underdogs in April 

April, 13, 2012

The MLB standings look a little cockeyed, right?

Nice work, Seattle Mariners, sneaking up on us like that and starting the season 4-4. Didn't we have you down for oh-fer by now? And the Toronto Blue Jays, starting 4-2 and tied for first in the American League East. This one, I am proud to say, we saw coming at the blog, pointing out that the sharps had been betting the Jays' season win total up all during their excellent spring training. And let's meet the 4-2 New York Mets. Just 68 more wins and they too will have made the sharps look sharp by winning 72 games, one more than their projected season win total.
