Matty D and I are way too biased towards the Phillies to preview this division together. Had to bring on the one guy who keeps me in check: The Prophet. Greg Piatelli returns and brought his NY Mets-loving friend Steve Geisenheimer on to preview to NL East. Take a listen
We also made our playoff and awards picks. I won’t give all of them but here are our World Series picks:
Geordie: Cubs over Red Sox
Greg: Cubs over Red Sox
Steve: Mets over Indians
Matt’s picks aren’t in yet, stay tuned…
Also, taking a look at some of the Opening Day money lines, here are a couple that may be too good to miss (getting these on ESPN):
Mets (-187) vs. Braves — Syndergaard vs. the new-look Braves. Huge value for a team that should be favored by more. Teheran could make it interesting.
Royals @ Twins (-105) — Basically a pick’em for a far superior Royals team against the Twins.
Indians @ Rangers (-104) — Rangers getting the nod in a pick’em because they’re at home. Kluber vs. Darvish, take your pick.
Thanks again to Greg and Steve for coming on. Hopefully, we can get them both back on soon because I had a blast doing this episode with them. Stay tuned for more episodes and enjoy the first week of baseball!
