Codey Harrison: (Lead Editor, and President/CEO) – Baseball fans it has been a long five months since the collusion of the 2012 MLB regular season. It was a crazy off-season from Josh Hamilton signing with the rival Angels, to the fallout in the desert between management and the 25-year-old superstar Justin Upton, resulting in an all Upton reunion in Atlanta. Whether it’s Mariners ace King Felix becoming the highest paid pitcher in MLB history, or the market being dry for speedy outfielder Michael Bourn causing him to settle on a 4 year contract with Cleveland.

With the crazy as ever off-season Vegas has the world series favorites as the Toronto Blue Jays, following their off-season acquisitions of Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buerley, and Melkey Cabrera to name a few. The defending world series champion Giants are 6-2 odds of repeating in 2013 according to Vegas.

The 2013 season will see the Houston Astros switch to the American League, meaning there will be interleague play all season long. With the latest rumors surrounding Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, it will be interesting to see if the Yankees find a way to void Rodriguez’s monster contract which still has over $100 million dollars remaining on it.
