This was a close call between the Yanks and Red Sox but I put the Sox in 1st due to their pitching. I know I will probably, actually it’s inevitable, get some comments from happy Sox fans and hating Yanks fans. But bring it on and let the banter begin!

    Hopefully Edwin Jackson will FINALLY get a chance to start every five days. He’s going to be a good pitcher. When he first came up with the Dodgers 4-5 years ago, he was AWESOME, then he fell back into the minors. Hopefully he can find a team where he’ll be given a shot. I can definitely see the DRays sneaking ahead of the Orioles this year. They are going to be complete trash minus a few players. Their rotation is junk minus Bedard and the occasional flash of brilliance from Cabrera. They have washups in their pen, but have a good closer. Their lineup is decent and the addition of Huff will help, but they won’t be able to slug themselves as many wins as other teams. I think the Jays could suprise a few people, and they’ll be in the running most of the season, but they’ll tale off in the second half like last season due to injuries *Cough* AJ Burnett *cough*. The top 4 of the rotation is decent though, and BJ Ryan is one of the better closers in the AL. Good Read!

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I think the East is becoming way more competitive. I believe the Jays have a shot but fall just short this year. The O’s need Mazzione’s magic and the Rays are a year or two away and a couple arms away from contending.
