Next year’s odds: Too soon?

At what point do the Phillies fans stop eating crow over their team’s failure to fulfill the championship expectations of which they were all convinced and move on to that blind, “we’re number 1!” stuff for 2012 that we know will come and love so very much when it does?

Heck, why not now?  Gambling on baseball is the dumbest thing in the history of dumb things, but I guess some people do it because why else would they release odds about it?  Here’s the just-released odds for 2012 from Bodog:

Phillies: 4/1
Yankees: 13/2
Red Sox: 8/1
Rangers: 12/1
Tigers 14/1
Cardinals 14/1

And of course, you have to go with the odds here because baseball always follows a predictable pattern.
