Don't see how Yankees would win AL in their current state

Just too old, can't hit in postseason either

Sabathia-Kuroda-Pettitte-Hughes/Nova/Phelps/Pineda is pretty nasty rotation to face in the playoffs. Plus, I'd caution against saying the Yankees "can't hit in the postseason," which is a blanket statement based on an absurdly small sample size.

But mainly, I'm a homer and I always pick the Yankees to win the World Series

Probably because there are a bunch of players in the NL that are better than him.

No love for Baltimore? Almost everyone is picking them to finish 4th or last.

they overachieved last year. their Pythagorean W-L record was 82-80 and they won 93 games . That is mainly due to them going 29-9 in 1 runs games, which is unheard of. Nobody expects them to be that successful in 1 run games again.

Don't think Milwaukee will finish 3rd

Pittsburgh will eventually play well for a full season

Don't think it's unreasonable to expect a huge breakout for a guy who turned twenty this offseason.

Okay? Seems like a minor quibble. Pittsburgh has no offense, Brewers have one of the best in the game and the Brewers bullpen shouldn't be as awful as they were last year.

If Alvarez and Tabata play to their potential and McCutchen doesn't drop off, Pittsburgh has a solid offense

Look through this. It will tell you all you need to know and why you don't need to even argue with the guy you quoted.

I really don't know why you guys are nitpicking at this. It's not like I picked them to finish 1st or even 2nd (!) in the division.

How did the rotation get worse? They're bringing back the same rotation that took them from 54-66 to 83-79 by the end of the season.

And I must be missing the whole division getting better thing.

Cincinnati added Choo, Manny Parra, Jason Donald and Jack Hannahan. Sure Choo is good on offense but he's going to be terrible on defense in CF.

St. Louis lost Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman and signed Ty Wigginton, Ronny Cedeno and Randy Choate. Lohse probably isn't going to be missed because of the depth in their farm system but it's not like they went out and added a ton of pieces.

Pittsburgh added Francisco Liriano, Russell Martin, Mark Melancon, Jeanmar Gomez and Jonathan Sanchez. Once again, where's the big move that drastically improves them?

The only reason the division got better is because the Astros left it.

Yeah, I see Milwaukee 3rd or challenging for 2nd. Stl lost key pieces to injury and to FA. Cincinnati also has never shown they can consistantly have great seasons in a row.

Hell, Milwaukee very well may win the Central.

Yeah, I think the Mariners will only win 72-75, but Houston is in much worse shape.

Don't like to judge other's picks, but where you have Minnesota and Houston is pretty nuts.
