Few things top heading out to the ballpark in the middle of the summer, with a couple of friends and grabbing a few beers and a hot dog. Of course, many fans want to represent their favourite teams and players when heading out to the game – wrapping themselves in their team’s colours and donning a jersey of their favourite players. Here are the top-10 best-selling MLB jerseys in 2016.
Biggest Stars In The MLB
Biggest Stars And Baseball Betting Odds
Star players influence baseball betting lines and odds for games every time they do or do not play. In baseball, the biggest line and spread movements occur with star pitchers. When the Los Angeles Dodgers spend out Clayton Kershaw to pitcher, they will rarely be the underdog – even when on the road. Star players do not just affect game odds, but future odds. In the offseason when deep-pocketed teams such as the Boston Red Sox spend large sums of money on the biggest free agents, they see a large uptick in their World Series betting futures.
It is always important to remember, teams stacked with stars do not always win. In 2014 and 2015, the Kansas City Royals went to the World Series – winning it in 2015. The Royals have one of the smallest payrolls in the league and have a roster relatively devoid of stars. The Royals faced the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets in the World Series – two teams with a player in the top-10 for jersey sales. The 2016 Cleveland Indians are a similar team to the Royals – as their team is full around youth and depth, not star power. They are nearly the polar opposite of the Chicago Cubs – who have three players in the list.

A Lackluster 2017 The Washington Nationals‘ 2017 was pretty similar to their 2016. Unfortunately for them, that meant a great regular season, but a quick exit in the postseason.

Best AL Record In 2017 The Cleveland Indians had a great 2017. In fact, their record of 102-60 was the best in the American League, and easily won them the AL Central. The Twins came in second at a stunning 17 games back. Their 100+ wins was even better than their 2016 record, which was […]
Close But No Cigar In 2017 There’s no doubt that the Los Angeles Dodgers had a killer 2017. Their record of 104-58 was the best in the league, and a record for the Dodgers since they’ve played in LA. They seemed to cruise in the postseason as well. Facing the Diamondbacks in the NLDS, the […]
‘Houston Strong’ In 2017 What more can be said? 2017 was Houston’s year. Their regular season was spectacular, amassing 101 wins to only 61 losses. It was their first 100 win season since 1998.
