OPACY is a nice park, been there a few times, but not recently.

Rumors building RSox close to a deal with JD Martinez.

Wonder what that will do to the 6/1 odds to win the pennant (Yanks at 5/2)

could make bettors reasess AL (and more importantly ALE) and could make the Astros or Indians favorites to win AL.

JDM reported at 5/110, don't know per year #s

can opt out after 2

dealable contract, (if its not hugely front-end loaded) not a the 7/210, 5/150 craziness we heard about

edit 2/50 for first 2 years

Astros WERE favorites.

I am thinking of laying 350 on Sox at 6-1

Not according to this-- Yankees were slight favorites (you had them at 5/2)

I've found vegasinsider to be a reliable, up to date and reflective barometer of the market.

2.2 to 1 sounds expensive for the Astros for the AL pennant, who's quoting you that price?

Arizona signs




Jarrod Dyson



Meanwhile - seems Martinez has a third year opt out as well.

2/50 - then an option
3rd year is 22 mil - then another option
38 mil for final 2 if he opts in.

Nice player protection if Martinez stays en fuego and the market once again takes off.

Sox get immediate help and risk getting Bernie Williamsed at the end

You should always shop around anyway before betting, if possible

(some bettors just like to stay with one betting site)

that's why I asked you about your source for 2.2/1 odds on the Astros, I hadn't seen odds that low.
