Odds favor Dodgers-Astros World Series following trade deadline

Odds favor Dodgers-Astros World Series following trade deadline The 2019 MLB trade deadline passed Wednesday afternoon with a flurry of late movement. Chief among them, the Houston Astros acquired former Cy Young award winner Zack Greinke from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers were able to add lefty reliever Adam Kolarek from the Tampa Bay Rays and infielder Jedd Gyorko from the St. Louis Cardinals. Both of these teams were among the biggest World Series favorites heading into the deadline. However, moves, or the lack of moves from other teams, did change the dynamic a bit according to Las Vegas. The oddsmaker My Top Sportsbooks came out with post-deadline odds. And they are rather interesting.

The 2019 Little League World Series will be held from August 15 to August 25 at the Little League headquarters complex in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The 2018 Little League World Series was held from August 16 to August 26 at the Little League headquarters complex in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Eight teams from the United States and eight teams from around the world competed in the 72nd edition of the tournament.

Little League World Series team accused of stealing signs, which is a serious offense Sign stealing is one of baseball’s oldest traditions.

A team in the Little League World Series has been accused of sign stealing. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar). Turns out, sign stealing is against the rules in Little League. It’s actually part of the rule book. So when one Little League manager accuses another team of stealing signs to succeed, it’s a serious accusation.
