Some online sportsbooks will allow you to "cash out" your bets after the odds change. So, with that being said, the Indians at 10/1 to win the AL and at 25/1 to win the World Series both looked incredibly enticing to me. If the season goes the way we hope and the Indians make a run, I have my doubts that I'll let either bet go through to completion, but Im hoping that we see enough of a shift in the odds that I can cash out both bets early and hopefully at least triple up on what I think are odds that are too low to start the season.

I did it a few years back when the Saints were 25/1. I ended up cashing when the odds dropped to 8/1. They lost in the playoffs the following game so I was stoked to have cashed at peak value.
And just two days later the odds have already dropped to 22/1. Please don’t ruin this season Rona!

Bieber, Plesac, Civale combined career numbers:

10.3 WAR, 40-23, 530.1 IP, 3.43 ERA, 558 K, 121 BB, 9.5 K/9, 2.1 BB/9, 4.6 K:BB ratio.

Rest of the 2016 draft class pitchers combined career numbers (46 players):

7.1 WAR, 107-106, 1899.2 IP, 4.68 ERA, 1800 K, 780 BB, 8.5 K/9, 3.7 BB/9, 2.3 K:BB ratio

Just incredible production from 1 draft class by the Indians.

Yeah, and they were drafted in the 3rd, 4th, and 12th rounds. There was some luck involved but mostly great player development.

In that draft there were 22 pitchers taken before the 2nd round and 13 more taken before Civale went to the Tribe in round 3. By the way, the Indians also got Nolan Jones in that draft so it has the chance to be the best draft in franchise history. Heck, maybe it already is.

We also took Will Benson and Logan Ice before any of the pitchers. Like I said, there was some luck involved. Daniel Johnson was also in that draft although he was not taken by us.

Let's not forget another pitcher from the draft of 2016 - Scott Moss..
The Tribe is mining that draft very well...
