Namely, Joe Maddon’s arrival as Angels manager was an all-in move. Maddon has impeccable credentials from his miracle work with the Cubs and Rays. Los Angeles doesn’t have the roster ready for a championship run. As a result, Maddon’s arrival has lacked betting on MLB games’ success. Across the freeway is a Dodgers team built to win it all. Los Angeles opened as massive chalk to win the National League pennant. So far there is nothing shown that contradicts that expectation.
