Comments: The AL east probably has the top two teams in the AL this year. The Yanks and BoSox will battle once again for the top spot. Two things
will determine who wins this division, the Red Sox closer, and where will Roger Clemens play. Don't discount the D-Rays this year, they could play
spoiler in September.
AL CENTRAL (bloodbath division)
Comments:Four teams have the chance to win this division. Without Liriano in the mix the Twins will need to rely on rookies Matt Garza and Boof
Bonser to carry much of the workload. The Indians very well may have the rookie of the year in Adam Miller, but have no place for him to start.
Detriot still has enough young arms and with the addition of Gary Sheffield should give their offense a boost. This race will be one on the last
series of the season. The Royals will once again struggle to win 60 games.
Comments:The angles 5th starter is Bartolo Colon who is only a year removed from his Cy Young season. If their staff can stay healthy they should be
able to fend off the A's. The A's will need a healthly season from Rich Harden if they want to compete. Texas still can't find any quality
starters, and Seattle only ambition this season should be to resign Ichiro.
Comments:I really have no idea. The Mets may have the worst starting rotation in baseball, so this is why I can't pick them. Their offense will
have to carry the team. This might be the Phil's year. They improved their starting pitching, and still have the league MVP. Bullpens woes may be
their undoing. The Marlins are very likeable team. They have a lot of young players that aren't making millions yet, and will be playing hard each
night. Washington may be worse than the Royals this year.
Comments: I really wanted to pick the Brewers, but I just think there are a year away. They have a great core of young players, and a pretty good
rotation. St. Louis just got hot at the right time last year, they really weren't better than any team they beat in the playoffs. They still have
the best player on the planet in Albert Pujols, so they are always in it for the wild card. Unless the Astros get Roger Clemens they do not have
Comments: Wow, this division stinks. I guess the number 1# factor is what are the Barry(s) going to do. Barry Zito will compete for the Cy Young
over in the national league, and if Bonds can play at a high level for 130 games the Giants very well could win the division. Arizona has a lot of
good young talent, they could be a surprise team. Who ever wins this division will barely be over .500.
Playoffs: AL BoSox over Angles Yanks get revenge over Tigers
Yanks win in 7 over Red Sox. Tim Wakefield losing pitcher again!!!!!!!
Cards beat Phils Dodgers beat Reds
Cards once again go to WS after beating Phils
Yanks destroy Cards in 3 1/2 games.
AL MVP: After 2 year snub voters actually watch Big Papi play and realize how good he is. Travs Hafner comes in second.
AL Cy Young: Boring.... Johan wins again. Halladay and Schilling battle for second place.
AL rookie of the year:Alex Gordon, a Royal wins something. Adam Miller is the sleeper.
NL MVP: Pujols, Pujols, and more Pujols
NL Cy Young:Zito knocks off Chris Capenter's Cy Young run.
NL Rookie of the year: Chris Young (the one in Arizona), and watch out for James Looney on the Dodgers if he ever gets a place to play.
EDIT: added Cubs and post season awards
