Betting on baseball is a bad idea, but some bets are slightly better than others.
A list of people who should never bet on baseball in descending order of importance that they never bet on baseball:
1. Allan H. (Bud) Selig
2. Professional baseball players
3. People who work in college athletic departments (This is actually true, they can't bet on any level of a sport in which the NCAA has a championship, so they can bet boxing but not the World Series or even fantasy football)
4. People who don't have any money
5. Baseball writers who make terrible predictions every year
