If I was a gambling man, I'd go put some money on the Reds. I love what they've done and I will be actively cheering for them in 2020.
Full disclosure, I am an occasional gambling man, but I'm absolutely terrible at sports betting. So don't go bet the farm on the Reds because of this post. I know many of you were about to do just that. Good thing I included this disclosure.
Also, give me the over on the Blue Jays at 74.2 wins.
I like how aggressive the Reds were but I don't particularly like most of their moves. Moustakas and Castellanos are decent players, but they both seemed more knee-jerk moves to me, I don't think they're nearly as good as the contracts they got; reminds me of the Padres moves the last couple of years.
I think Toronto could step up this year though. I could see a lot of turnover in that division.
I'm not as confident in Houston either. The scandal hanging over the team's head not-withstanding, they're down to one elite starter and he's 37. Greinke is good but no longer dominant and the young guys don't come close to matching up to Charlie Morton let along Gerrit Cole.
