Seattle and LA both are pitchers parks. Texas of course is hard to pitch in though.

The Coliseum, Angel Stadium, and Safeco are all consistently ranked top 10 in lowest runs allowed every year.

They also have to play in every other AL park and now quite a few interleague stadiums.

They do pitch in some nice pitching parks, but they put the numbers up everywhere.

Lottery tickets put the odds on the back. Doesn't mean a thing.

Means what this year?

Are you not the same guy who posted all the injuries, and stats about previous years of the new jays acquisitions citing them as reasons for the Jays finishing 4th or 5th in the AL east? Hilarious that stats from years past "don't mean anything this year" when used to back up your opinion but when bashing the jays, its all doom and gloom because of years past

Vegas will always stack the deck in their favor. Them giving the Jays the best odds means they're giving more value in other contenders. That's not something they take lightly.

Why are they going to give me a bigger payout to bet on the Angels if they believe the Angels are more likely to win? It makes absolutely no sense and the people who place those odds are far brighter baseball people then you or I..

Vegas isn't in the game to lose money. Surely even you can see that.

Neither is a lottery.

A lottery is randomly drawing numbers, not setting odds based on 30 teams and their probability..

It's not even close to the same thing.

Lottery in general. Scratch off tickets in particular. Not that the state doesn't post odds for Number raffles on their web sites, either.
