Major League Baseball is just around the corner and folks are gearing up with their MLB World Series future bets.  One team was about to have their odds dramatically cut thanks to a blockbuster deal Saturday.

Ace Yu Darvish and the Chicago Cubs have reached agreement on a $126 million, six-year contract, a person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Saturday, bolstering their bid for a second World Series crown in three seasons.

The Cubs were coming in at 10/1 odds to win the 2018 World Series just prior to Saturday's news. 

They were likely to be listed at 6/1 heading into the new season.

Darvish finished last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, helping them knock out the defending champion Cubs in the playoffs to reach the World Series. The Japanese star is expected to take the rotation spot of Jake Arrieta, who became a free agent after finishing the year in Chicago.

The Cubs have reached the NL Championship Series in each of the last three years. In 2016, they won their first World Series crown since 1908.

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this affair having clearly made their mark on the 2021 MLB season. With a 106-56 record to end the season, they easily beat out the Padres, Rockies, and Diamondbacks, in the NL West. The rest of baseball with exception of the Rays, (100 wins) were not close, not slightly in the ballpark, not even kind of!
