I like the Jays or Rays to win it.
I think February 24th is way to early to count anyone out, but especially a team that I feel has great pitching. They just need to score more, and they can if they get it through their heads that it's not 2009, they're not gonna hit 6 homers every night, and they utilize their speed a little more. There was no stealing or chiseling today, but you don't necessarily expect that stuff in spring training. Let's wait til the real games start to see if they can adapt.
If they still can't hit getting deep into April we can talk about too old. For now, it's 30 degrees outside. It's not time to write anyone off.
Ben Hutton is my Spirit Animal. Jeff Gorton is not.
