Yankees will almost surely win the World Series

According to this Web site, the Yankees are 5-to-2 favorites to win the World Series this year, best odds in the majors. The Phillies are 11-to-1. Those gritty, gutty Rays are 12-to-1.

If I were a gambler – and I certainly wouldn’t admit it on here if I was – I’d be interested in the Angels at 11-to-1. For a longshot, I like the Diamondbacks at 30-to-1, if only because the NL West is so murky and once you get in the playoffs, anything can happen.

Here’s the complete list (by the way, as I write this, LeBron just hit a 25-foot three-pointer and has 16 points in nine minutes):

Arizona Diamondbacks 30/1
Atlanta Braves 35/1
Baltimore Orioles 150/1
Boston Red Sox 15/2
Chicago Cubs 7/1
Chicago White Sox 25/1
Cincinnati Reds 50/1
Cleveland Indians 25/1
Colorado Rockies 60/1
Detroit Tigers 20/1
Florida Marlins 40/1
Houston Astros 40/1
Kansas City Royals 150/1
Los Angeles Angels 11/1
Los Angeles Dodgers 17/1
Milwaukee Brewers 35/1
Minnesota Twins 25/1
New York Mets 7/1
New York Yankees 5/2
Oakland Athletics 55/1
Philadelphia Phillies 11/1
Pittsburgh Pirates 200/1
San Diego Padres 200/1
San Francisco Giants 40/1
Seattle Mariners 100/1
St Louis Cardinals 30/1
Tampa Bay Rays 12/1
Texas Rangers 60/1
Toronto Blue Jays 60/1
Washington Nationals 150/1
