August has been a real month of movement in the MLB and the latest futures reflect that. There is even a new favorite at the top as the Toronto Blue Jays – hot off a big trade deadline – have gone 16-4 in the month of August, and don’t look to be slowing down.
The Mets, Cubs, and Pirates have all improved since the deadline, as well. But no team has made a more shocking climb than the Texas Rangers. When they acquired Cole Hamels, most analysts thought it was a long-term move for a team that was left for dead. But the addition of Hamels and the return of Derek Holland have the Rangers very much in the hunt, even stealing the second AL Wild Card spot from the reeling Los Angeles Angels this week.
For every rise, there must be a fall, though; along with the Angels, the Washington Nationals have taken one of the biggest tumbles. Now sitting ten games back in the NL Wild Card, their only chance at the postseason will be catching up to the surging New York Mets, whom they currently trail by 5.5. And good luck with that. The Mets are 14-6 this month and have one of the best pitching rotations in baseball. It may be time to sell on the Nationals.
Here’s the full list of World Series futures (minus some irrelevant teams) for the final month of the season, including the teams’ odds from August 5 in parentheses.
