if ryan howard wins the nl mvp i will swim across the deleware in october. i see them winning 84 games, but if they prove me wrong and make the playoffs there will be no complaining out of me.

starting in right field for the phillies:





he just keeps tricking people into thinking he's a good baseball player.

If Delmon Young was a DH primarily hitting lefties he would be valuable.

I dont think Delmon Young is going to be playing alot, plus he is hurt currently. i think it will be maybery revere and brown which is a bad outfield but it isnt the mets.

The Mets highest paid OFs this year are Jason Bay and Bobby Bonilla.

If Delmon Young could play the Yankees 162 times per season, he'd win the MVP.

One thing I love is that people believe that for the Orioles to be good they have to go 29-9 in one run games again.

harvey pitched 59.1 innings last year and is not eligible to win the rookie of the year.

hard to see past that. i think it's like, the third or fourth best record in one-run games in the history of baseball.

the orioles had the fourth most relief innings in 2012 (545.1). they had the fifth best bullpen era (3.00). the other teams in the top five of relief innings? colorado (657), kansas city (567.1), minnesota (558.2) and cleveland (528.1). what do those teams have in common? they're ******! to ask the bullpen to repeat that performance as a whole is too much.

oh they also outperformed their pythag by 11 wins...scoring seven more runs than they allowed. i don't think that happens again.

forgive me if i don't hold high hopes for their chances of all of those things repeating themselves.

Dunno if it was directed at me considering I was the last post, but as a whole I thought they were a little over their heads last year and will come back down to earth. Plus It is a strong division. I think Rays have the best team in the division, Yankees are the Yankees to me and I like some of the moves the Jays have made.

Just a general view of people's opinions on them. I don't particularly think they're going to be as good, but the formula isn't repeating the one run games thing. They have other routes to success.

Bundy needs to be a runaway for ROY and Machado needs a breakout season for Orioles to be good again this season. That would help offset the likely regression in that ridicoulous 1-run games record.

I don't think they're a shoe in the for the playoffs, but I think they're a better ball club than most think.

They had 3 pretty good players miss significant time last year.

Markakis alone improves their pretty potent lineup.

They obviously hit the luck last year, but you're kidding yourself if you feel they don't have talent. Their lineup's pretty strong, and if they can get ANYTHING from a 2B, they'll improve significantly. Their bullpen's one of the top four or five in baseball, and they've got 5-6 (maybe more) legitimate MLB starters. None of the starters are an ace, but they're better than given credit for.

I hear that Clayton Kershaw kid is pretty dang good. That team also has Zach Greinke. San Fran is also pretty strong with Cain and an upcoming Bumgarner

With Roberts back, they should at least get a replacement level player.

I take back my prediction. No way the Yankees make the playoffs with these injuries.

Of course there's a way. These are not season-ending injuries and they certainly have the pitching to win games. The AL East should be a five-team battle royale, so if the Yankees can find a way to tread water and at least stay close to .500 until Granderson, Teixeira and even A-Rod get back, they might find themselves in decent shape. That said, I've got them finishing third.

Yeah, you're right. CC and Kuroda still best 1-2 punch in the AL imo. As long as they're .500 by the All Star break, I like the chances when everyone's healthy the 2nd half of the season.
