The ScoreAL division odds update: Buy Yankees after slow start

Before the season began, we broke down our best bets to win each American League division. Less than two months later, the odds have already significantly changed for some teams after blistering starts or surprising cold spells.Here are our favorite values after the first few dozen games:AL East TEAM ODDS New York Yankees -120 Boston Red Sox +300 Toronto Blue Jays +550 Tampa Bay Rays +600 Baltimore Orioles +17500 I was intrigued by the Red Sox to win this division at 30-1, but a strong start from their talented lineup slashed that price to 3-1, despite Boston sitting just three games ahead of the Yankees and Rays in the standings.Tyler Glasnow is a star headlining a rotating cast of filthy arms, but the Rays' bats rank dead last in expected batting average (.220) and lead the league in whiff rate (30.6%), which are indicators that the offense may not improve significantly. And though I liked the Blue Jays entering the year at a shorter price, injuries have hampered an already uncertain pitching staff.Boston's lineup has posted the best numbers in the bigs, but the Yankees' isn't far behind, and New York's stellar bullpen has helped take the pressure off non-Gerrit Cole starters. When the Bronx Bombers eventually retake the lead in the division, this short price will likely look silly in hindsight.Value: Yankees (-120)AL Central TEAM ODDS Chicago White Sox -125 Minnesota Twins +375 Cleveland Indians +500 Kansas City Royals +500 Detroit Tigers +17500 For a couple of weeks, it looked like the weight of expectations might hinder the White Sox, who got off to a 6-8 start. They then won 13 of their next 18 games, discovered a handful of unlikely stars, and stole the early divisional lead from the rival Indians.As a result, Chicago leads all AL teams with a 58.5% chance of winning its division, according to Fangraphs, which translates to roughly -140 odds. If you believe in the early breakouts of Yermin Mercedes, Carlos Rodon, and Dylan Cease, that number may be even higher, even with Luis Robert's recent injury.Cleveland's rotation still has the highest upside, but its lineup has been no-hit twice and can't find consistent production outside of Jose Ramirez and Franmil Reyes. The Twins are an absolute mess amid a 12-20 start, and the Royals have already wilted after a stunning run to open the year. Stick with the White Sox at an even better price than before the season.Value: White Sox (-125)AL West TEAM ODDS Oakland Athletics +115 Houston Astros +120 Los Angeles Angels +700 Seattle Mariners +2200 Texas Rangers +15000 It's been a wild ride to get there, but the Athletics sit atop the division with a 2.5-game lead over the Astros and Mariners. Still, advanced stats suggest Oakland's early division lead isn't built to last.Houston's hitters have lived up to expectations thus far, ranking in the top two in expected batting average (.272) and xwOBA (.339) behind a league-low 19% strikeout rate and strong line-drive rate (25.3%). The issue has been on the mound, where a poor ground-ball rate and lack of aggression early in counts has plagued the Astros' rotation.Those issues can be corrected, unlike the Athletics' lack of star power, the Angels' injury woes and lack of depth, and the Mariners' general dearth of MLB talent. Seattle may be worth a shot if it calls up a majority of its top prospects, but Houston is still the safest bet to win its fourth division title in five years.Pick: Astros +120C Jackson Cowart is a betting writer for theScore.

The ScoreMatheny: I was 'flat wrong' to argue with Angel Hernandez over balk call

It turns out that, sometimes, Angel Hernandez is correct.That's what Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny is willing to concede after being ejected during Wednesday night's contest against the Cleveland Indians while arguing a balk call from the veteran umpire that knocked Brady Singer from the game."You know, I don't have any issue with Angel," Matheny said Thursday morning, according to Alec Lewis of The Athletic. "Matter of fact, I was just flat wrong yesterday. He had it right. He saw a balk I didn't see ... But he was right. I was wrong. And I'll let him know that, too."Singer was called on a balk while pitching in the sixth inning, awarding both Eddie Rosario and Franmil Reyes one base each. While Matheny and pitching coach Cal Eldred argued vehemently at the time and were both tossed, it does appear as though Singer's drive leg twitches prior to the pickoff attempt. I may only be saying this because it benefits us, but Angel Hernandez was absolutely right. Singer twitched. Watch his right leg. That s a balk. pic.twitter.com/SYsEpb8cJ6 Monte the Color Man (@Monte_Colorman) May 6, 2021 Singer was also later ejected, arguing with Hernandez while he was walking off the field during a pitching change.Matheny walking back his criticism of Hernandez comes during a rough series for the veteran umpire. On Tuesday, Hernandez admitted he "basically guessed" when making a call on a fly ball which proved to be incorrect. After the game, Indians manager Terry Francona admitted he asked Hernandez "Why's it always happening when you're here?" during the incident.Copyright © 2021 Score Media Ventures Inc.
