Oddsmakers expect the Boston Red Sox to be their opponents. The Red Sox are 5-1 to win the Series after acquiring Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez.

The New York Yankees are given 6-1 odds for winning the Series. The defending champion San Francisco Giants are at 12-1 odds for a repeat.

The New York Mets? They are 35-1 long shots to win it all in 2011, and I’m surprised the odds are not even longer than that.

The real long shots? In the American League the Kansas City Royals are 125-1. In the National League the Pittsburgh Pirates are listed at 150-1.
