Just when you thought the local papers and some bloggers were in agreement that the Mets will have a terrible season, Vegas has come up with the latest odds to win the 2012 World Series. The Mets are a 100/1 shot to win the whole thing along with the White Sox, Pirates, and Orioles.. The only teams to have worse odds are the Padres, A's, and Astros, who are 150/1.
Now that we know who are at the bottom, looking at the top are the Phillies, Red Sox, Yanks, Rangers, and Angels with the acquisitions of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson.
If you were wondering, the New Miami Marlins with the great Jose Reyes are 30/1 odds to win it all..

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
First, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made a big bet in the AL West, signing not only free-agent first baseman Albert Pujols, but also left-handed starter C.J. Wilson, the Opening Day starter last season for the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers.
Then the Rangers raised the ante, landing Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish, amid speculation that they well could wind up...
Another week, another collection of the best tweets (term "best" used loosely) from LA Angels players and personnel. This week, C.J. Wilson loves warm weather, Hank Conger hates shadow boxers and JUMBACOS!!!!!!!!!
Remember how there were all these rumors that C.J. Wilson was always going to sign with the Angels because he badly wanted to live in California again? ...
1. Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels
Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels
2. Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers
Cabrera is the second most consistent first baseman in baseball.
3. Adrian Gonzalez, Boston Red Sox
Gonzalez led all MLB first basemen with 630 AB in 2011. With that many ABs and the players surrounding him, you can’t help but get giddy about Gonzo.
4. Joey Votto...
Whether you were devastated, relieved, or somewhere in between when Albert Pujols rejected a reported $210 million, 10-year contract offer from team president, Bill Dewitt, and GM John Mozeliak, the fact remains that the departure of the St. Louis Cardinals’ long-time first basement gives the front office a lot more payroll flexibility moving forward.

It's technically true to say that the Cardinals' 2012 World Series Championship is their second in a row and third in seven years. That's what the numbers say. This Cardinal...
Back when we put together our top 100 offseason questions, Ryan Braun was widely considered a reasonable first overall pick. He’s been among the best offensive weapons at any position in the entire league since he made his Major League debut back in 2007, and Braun’s .994 OPS last season led the league. He’s hit 30-plus homers and batted over .300 in four of five seasons...
White House Turns Red
(As in Cardinal Red, folks.)
Talk about a “Super Tuesday” — this week members of the 2011 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals met with President and First Lady Obama at the White House. Notably absent were Adam Wainwright, Albert Pujols and Tony LaRussa, perhaps following Yadier Molina’s example just a couple of days earlier, as he skipped the Winter...
