BAA Grass .270

The BAA difference is fairly substantial, which is logical considering he's a contact pitcher.

I'm also surprised how little respect Baltimore gets on this board.
I don't think there's any question they'll compete again.

Toronto probably improved temporarily, but this is the AL East.
As it stands now, I think that the Rays and Yankees are roughly even at the top, while the O's and Jays are roughly even about 4 games behind them. The Sox need to find some pitching before they can be considered contenders again.

Obviously this is all subject to change based on the rest of the offseason.
