Q & A returns this season with #21 and the Las Vegas High Rollers and their owner since day 1 of Mathewson, oddson!
Oddson with Las Vegas has won the NL West 4 times and finished 2nd another 12 times out of 23 seasons. With the 4 division win, there were also another 11 wild card appearances for Las Vegas. And of those 15 playoff appearances, Las Vegas has 2 World Series Championships!
Some believe his team is sometimes overlooked because of the division they are in (with Colorado), but, oddson has Las Vegas just as ready every season and you know that playing against this team will be a tough series!
With a career W/L record (going into season 24) of 2026-1700 (.544) in Mathewson, oddson is also no slouch outside of Mathewson as his overall HBD W/L record is 7070-5728 (.552) AND an additional 3 World Series Championships in 79 total seasons!
On with the Q & A with oddson
Favorite MLB Team:
Growing up in New York, it's hard not to be a Yankee fan.
Favorite all-time and/or current player(s):
Hard to say, so many great ones. But, I would go with Don Mattingly and Derek Jeter!
Favorite Mathewson player(s) current and/or All-Time:
Being an original member (in Mathewson), there are many players.
I would say, in the past, Stevie Slaughter and Jeff Trammell.
Currently, Hector Arroyo and Derrick Monroe.
Significance of team name and/or username:
oddson comes from me making a projected betting line in my fantasy football league and predicting me, the "odds-on" favorite!
Favorite non-baseball team/sport:
New York Jets
I grew up in NY, where I graduated Hofstra University where I met my current wife of 19 years. I moved to Las Vegas 19 years ago, where I became a professional sports bettor and poker player. And I have two great kids!
Favorite Mathewson moment:
Season 8 when I barely made the playoffs and went on to win the World Series that season!
Team you most dislike to face:
Like so many others, I would say the Colorado Colorado Crush (hoyanoel). Games with them are always meaningful!
But, I can also say that the games with Colorado Colorado Crush with hoyanoel can also be regarded as the team I most LIKE to face for the same reason: these games are always meaningful!
One tip you can share with all:
Don't get caught up in ratings of players, they can sometimes be very missleading!
Thank You oddson! If I was a betting man (which I am) and the way you have Las Vegas playing this season, I would guess that Las Vegas might be one of the "odds-on" favorites to win the World Series this season!
