I was perusing the over/under lines online today and thought that the Giants at 73 wins was very generous.
Why I could be wrong:
-Bonds gone is weight off many shoulders
-Zito should be better
-Cain should be better
Why I think I'm right:
-Rest of division is significantly better
-Worse offense than last year negates any pitching improvement
-Aaron Rowand is their best position player
-Minimal offensive depth behind 6 starters above age 33(33, 36, 36, 40, 35, 33), some of whom are serially injury-prone
I thought 68 was more appropriate, and I'd be interested in what you guys think would be fair odds on 62.
