They did literally just 2 years ago. This team is much better. Chicago could finish 2nd, but I do think Cleveland is more likely at this point.

They finish 3rd at worst imo. I can't see the Royals finishing ahead of them again.

Every time I start to put together my predictions, I realize that I just can't pick the AL East. I'm fairly comfortable taking Tampa Bay to win the division, but after that, it's a complete crapshoot. Toronto certainly has the most talent, but I just cannot get myself to write off the Yankees or Red Sox even though they have no business finishing ahead of the Jays.

Not team predictions but I do have a surefire prediction. Longoria and Tulowitzki will get injured and miss a lot of time (like every season) Don't get me wrong, I'm not hoping for it at all but it's a given at this point.

Fun tournament.

Good on Yadi to motion team PR to go out there and congratulate them. Yadi broke my heart in 06, but he is a solid player and I respect the guy.

Edit: Wrong thread.

Picked Indians to finish 3rd but wouldnt be surprised if Royals finish above them. Bourn and Swisher are good additions and Reynolds and Stubbs are decent additions to a lineup that was in the bottom half is just about major categories last season. They have no pitching however. Royals runs differential was whooping +108 compared to Indians last season.

It's funny they are probably my 2 favorite players in the league. Sadly it's become the norm but I hope you are wrong. 2 of the most talented players in the league.

Martini's revised prediction's now that ST is almost complete

AL East
1. Yankees
2. Rays
3. O's
4. Red Sox
5. Jays

Yankees are still the class of the division, while the Rays pitching just cannot be ignored. O's have a great, detail orientated manager and two young superstars in the making in Bundy and Machado. Red Sox have enough pitching depth to make a run but will either need to add a bat or actually give their prospects a change. Jays just have too many holes and too many question marks to take seriously.

AL Central
1. White Sox
2. Tigers
3/4 Royals/ Tribe
5. Twins

White Sox right now are the class of the AL. Depth on both sides and the best rotation in the AL even with Danks on the DL to start. Sox need him more for the stretch run to put more distance between them and Detroit. Tigers just don't have the bullpen to compete with Sox. Royals/Tribe are a toss up but still a couple notches below, and the Twins need to rebuild.

AL West
1. Angels
2. Rangers
3. Seattle
4. A's
5. Lastros

Not taking any team in the West this year as an honest challenge to a WS. Angels get this one on default. Rangers just don't have enough pitching and Profair is either gonna be a mega star or a complete bust. M's have decent depth while the A's just wont sneak up on people this year on account of nobody took them seriously last year and I don't blame them still. Astros stink....bad.

NL East
1. Nats
2. Phillies
3. Braves
4. Mets
5. Marlins

Nats win on account of being that much better then the pack. Expect great things from my guy Bryce. Phil's still have the pitching, while the moves the Braves made really don't make me think they will be better then mediocre. Mets need to clean house while the M's need five years

NL Central
1. Reds
2. Cubs
3. Cardinals
4. Brewers
5. Pirates

Big, big prediction, but the Flubs have so much depth thru out their team and quietly have filled their gaping holes in such an efficient manner thanks to Theo, it isn't too hard to think they will have a much better season while still building a better farm system. All bets are off if they get hit with injuries. Reds? Even with Dusty too much talent. Cardinals always are up there and have an awful lot of value in the minors, while both the Brewers and Pirates are just pretenders and should be ranked as very good AAA teams.

NL West
1. Giants
2. Dodgers
3. D-Backs
4. Rockies
5. Padres

Most boring division in baseball.


WS- White Sox over Nats in six

Not that I needed any more confirmation in this, but thanks for proving once again that nobody should take your opinion seriously. Nothing but homer picks and blatant shots at other teams.

Looking for more of an explanation than a downright gauntlet slap. They added a few pitchers, and Rizzo and Castro might be better with a year under their belts, but I didn't get the impression Theo went on a gap-filling spree.

A's in 4th made me laugh. Also, the fact that you can apparently "sneak up" on other teams. Their 94-68 had nothing to do with the fact that they were a solid team, nope, the snuck up on their opposition.
