Are the Toronto Blue Jays Overvalued in the AL Futures market after a jump in odds?
The Toronto Blue Jays have made a splash in the free-agent market, and the American League champion futures market has adjusted in kind. Toronto is all of a sudden now 9-1 to win the American League. They jumped over the Astros after poaching George Springer and Michael Brantley from Houston, who is right there with the Oakland A’s at +1000. The Athletics, by the way, were in the playoffs last year and have won the American League West, but last year they won the American league was a long time ago. The Indians, who you should throw the Indians away, they are a little further down there at +3700 with the Boston Red Sox even further down the line. Sure, Boston is hurting right now, but if you were going to ask, who’s got the better record next year, the Red Sox will finish ahead of the Blue Jays. Not very bullish on this Jays’ pitching staff, and that’s a reason for concern. The jump in the AL futures odds is overstated solely because of the moves Toronto has made.
