With the acquisition of star reliever Andrew Miller to Cleveland, the prospect of an Indians vs. Cubs World Series in 2016 is looking promising.

As of Sunday afternoon, only hours after the acquisition was announced, Cleveland’s odds were hanging around at 7-1 most books with the Chicago Cubs (4-1) favored to win this year’s World Series.  The Washington Nationals also had 7-1 odds while the struggling San Francisco Giants were listed at +750.

Miller, 31, appeared in 44 games for the Yankees this season, posting a 6-1 record with a 1.39 ERA and nine saves. He is averaging 15.3 strikeouts per nine innings and has allowed runs in just eight of 44 appearances.

"I loved my time here. I enjoyed playing in New York. I liked living in New York," Miller said before the Yankees' game Sunday in Tampa. "I like the guys here. I'm going to miss that. It's a time I'm going to look back at fondly. For me now, it's a chance to go to a team that's in the thick of it and has big plans for this year. So, you have to look at the positives and helping those guys reach their goals."

The Cubs, meanwhile, looked a little less invincible heading into the All Star Break, losing their last nine of eleven games, but have since gone 9-6.
