Updated 2014 Odds To Win The World Series

Oakland A’s +400
The A’s may have cemented their status as World Series favorites by adding veterans Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes for the gifted Yoenis Cespedes and a draft pick. Oakland also acquired veteran hurler Jeff Samardzija about a month earlier, so this team is looking very solid right now.

Detroit Tigers +450
The Tigers got David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for youngsters Drew Smyly, Austin Jackson and Willy Adames. Detroit’s deal also included outfielder Austin Jackson and Nick Franklin.

Price will join an already supreme starting staff in Detroit and he could very well be the one player that could put the Tigers over the top as he leads the American League with 189 strikeouts in 170.2 innings pitched.

Los Angeles Angels +800
The Angels sit just two games behind Oakland in the competitive AL West, but their lack of movement at the trade deadline could hurt them, especially seeing as how their division rivals really upgraded their pitching staff.

Los Angeles Dodgers +450
The Dodgers are up 2.5 games on the Giants in the NL West and a trade could have bolstered their chances of winning the NL Pennant. Unfortunately, they stood pat – and it could cost them come playoff time.

San Francisco Giants +1100
The Giants have really been struggling for the better part of the last six weeks or so, but they also stood down as GM Brian Sabean said the players on the market were a bit too pricey for his taste.

I’ve done this a long time," Sabean told reporters recently. "I feel as good about not getting something done as any year we’ve done something. There were a lot of bad deals to be made, and we certainly weren’t going to do that."

New York Yankees +3000
The Yankees are in third place in the AL East, six games behind division-leading Baltimore and that may have spurred them to do something drastic…to a certain extent. The Bronx Bombers also made a trade with their longtime rivals, by acquiring veteran shortstop Stephen Drew and $500,000 in cash in exchange for veteran infielder Kelly Johnson.

The Yankees also acquired infielder Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for minor leaguer Pete O’Brien and either cash or a player to be named later. New York also added veteran third baseman Chase Headley and underrated right-hander Brandon McCarthy in an effort to help them reach the postseason.

St. Louis Cardinals +1000
The Cardinals were very shrewd at the trade deadline as they traded Allen Craig and Joe Kelly for John Lackey right after getting Justin Masterson one day earlier. St. Louis is just one game behind Milwaukee in the NL Central.

Toronto Blue Jays +1500
The Jays needed help at second base and another starting pitcher as they sit in second place in the AL East, but this team did absolutely nothing at the trade deadline.

With the completion of the busiest trade deadline in recent memory, several of the aforementioned teams will likely take a step forward – or backward – over the next few weeks, so keep a careful eye on all of these ballclubs.
