Weekend Business Trip . . .

. . . To Vegas.

Tomorrow morning I'll be leaving the sub-zero east coast weather for the, um, rain and wind of the Nevada desert.  This trip has a purpose.  Seriously.  It's bases season and it's time to get some futures down.  As a Mets fan, there's been little to root for the past few (decades) years.  Some season totals plays help keep the season interesting.  Last year, I played 4: Atlanta, St. Louis, Tampa and Arizona.  The first three cashed easily, while the D-backs fell a few games short.

This year, I'm still considering my picks.  So far, I like the Overs for the Royals and Reds.  I sort of like Baltimore too, although that division is a murder's row....  I also like TB for the World Series at +1800...  If anyone has a GUARANTEED winner, please let me know!

Lastly, Congrats to Tony (Hero) Bigcharles for taking down last night's blogger free roll on Sealswithclubs.  We prolly could have gone without Tony's chat box comments (e.g., "looks like I found my donkey," after dude makes a late tourney shove with AK against Hero's limped AA), but he made some tough calls for all his chips near the bubble and played well).  Thanks to Poker Meister for setting up the event!

  1. Of course, we could always talk about the wisdom of limping with AA at the final table with a group that had been playing relatively conservatively, but ... Tony was just fortunate that the player had AK (in the BB maybe?) or else the door would have been wide open. I'd have flopped a flush draw, for example.

  2. The hand that stood out to me was his all-in call, pre-flop, on the bubble with 88. Villain had AQ (I believe) and he held up.

    1. O's are at 78. I want to take them soooo badly. But that division is killer. They may have the best offense in the East, but they also have four #3 starters (at best).
