    Finishing last in baseball results in the following:

    Picking first in the June amateur draft
    Being awarded a bigger draft budget for the first 10 rounds (which not only gives you a shot at the top player, but also the ability to shift more money around to impact the following rounds)
    Being awarded a bigger international free agent budget
    Picking first in the Rule 5 Draft
    Having the top waiver claim position for the entire winter (when waivers are not league-dependent) and through the first month of the following season

    As an Orioles fan, I definitely want the Jays to win 81 and not 50. A 2016 Yankee-style restocking at the trade deadline (not with 50 wins, of course) is a more likely nightmare scenario than a run back to 86-88 wins and WC contention.

    Either way, I think the Red Sox will right themselves and win the East going away.

    BTW, been going to the Caps and Leafs series (games 2, 5, 7 if nec) with a Leafs fan and learned a lot about hockey the last 10 days. I still can't get over the difference in ticket prices between the 2 cities. Center ice club seats for game 7 were still available from the team for $225 during game 5!

    Yeah $225 in Toronto gets you the privilege of negotiating a price for your ticket with a scalper.
