Nationals joint favorites to win 2013 World Series

Bovada puts the Nationals, Dodgers, and Tigers as 17/2 favorites to win the World Series in 2013

With the signing of Zach Grienke by the Los Angeles Dodgers this week, most of the big offseason questions in Major League Baseball have been answered. The Nationals, for their part, still have one key move to make: settling the re-signing of Adam LaRoche (followed by, if he does re-sign, settling the question of what to with Michael Morse).

Regardless, we feel comfortable in taking our first look at the 2013 World Series odds, as updated by Bovada, and would you look at that? The Nationals are joint favorites to take both the NL pennant and the World Series (joining the Dodgers and Tigers at 17/2). And the fourth-favorite is, as expected ... the Toronto Blue Jays at 10/1? Well, it's amazing what bringing on some former Marlins will do for you.
