    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    As I eluded to the "Greatest Franchises" thread, I have applied my formula that I used for ranking college hockey programs and NFL franchises to baseball. Similar to the football unveil, I thought people may be interested in having a "Top 10 Contest." Given the holidays, I'll give everyone until January 5, 2018 to make their predictions, and then I'll start unveiling the teams with the hope of finishing the list before Spring Training.

    Good catch joecct. Serves me right for not double checking my post. Obviously, I meant alluded. Let us pray such a grammar disaster never happens again.

    Nevada sportsbooks lost $11.4 million on baseball in November -- the largest baseball loss in a month for the state's regulated books, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

    There was one MLB game in November. Did all the LA people drive over to Vegas and bet against Yu Darvish?

    Lots of action on the Caribbean playoffs.

    Maybe there was a lot of money on the 'Stros at long odds? When a long term bet pays out (say a bet placed in March on the World Series champ) does it register at the point it was placed or the point it was paid?

    If it's at the point of pay out then all the other team bets closed in October as those teams were eliminated, pumping up the House, except the Dodgers, leaving the one November payout to show an artificial "loss."

    Holy crap -- I think I figured it out!

    It's certainly possible that's the reason. Probably can be the only explanation, although it's a little strange. Houston was about 15/1 to win the WS at the beginning of the year. I think Kansas City was 30/1 when they won it a couple of years ago, and the last game of that series was in November. San Francisco was 20/1 in 2010 and finished in November. As I recall, SF was quite a bit back at mid-season that year as well.

    It undoubtedly has to do with the payoff of futures bets in November instead of October, but is probably due more to bets made in October than season long futures bets. The Cubs and Dodgers were pretty heavy favorites when we got down to the conference championship games in October.

    As one who rooted hard for the Red Sox' comeback over the Yankees knowing even then the price of victory would be the unrelenting, keening, mewling whine from the most irritating fanbase from the worst city with the most pathetic population in North America, it gives me perfect serenity to know that the symbol, the memory, and the legacy of that team will be, forever, this man.

    Well, considering no one seems to care too much with doing a Top 10 contest at the moment, I'll wait until we get closer to Spring Training to start unveiling the teams.

    Looks like Gerrit Cole to the Astros.
