Tell me what you think.
Yankees 97-65-too much talent to miss playoffs
Blue Jays 90-72- In NL, playoff team, in AL East not even top 2
Rays 81-81-.500 Whoo Hoo!
Orioles 59-103- Brutal, just brutal.
Tigers 99-63- Willis returns to form to complete best pitching staff in Majors
Indians 95-67-Corner outfielders are questionable, but otherwise excellent
White Sox 84-78- Atleast trying to improve
Twins 80-82- Will almost get to .500 in surprisingly decent season
Royals 71-91- Blah.
Angels 94-68- Another division win for LA of Anaheim. What a dumb name.
Mariners 93-69- Good effort, but not there yet.
Rangers 75-87- Good year for the Rangeers, I guess.
A's 75-87- Tough transition year for Oakland.
Mets 96-66- I'm not on their bandwagon, they just have so much talent, only Rightfield is an issue.
Phillies 93-69- Another good year from Phils, and Utley looks to complete 3 year MVP sweep.
Braves 84-78- Good year from the Braves, but Mets, Phils too much.
Marlins 70-92- Rebuilding again.
Nationals 70-92- LoDuca was a good pickup.
Cubs 89-73- Division champs again?
Brewers 86-76- Just short of Cubbies.
Cardinals 83-79- Pujols won't hold off surgery once he sees team isnt competitive.
Astros 81-81- Tejada does extremely well, but not good enough team to win consistently.
Reds 81-81- Improvement.
Pirates- 70-92- Sam-old Bucs.
West- By the way top four teams can go in all different orders
D-Backs 94-68- Pitching wins championships.
Rockies 90-72- Cinderella's shoe still fits nicely.
Padres 88-74- Pitching wins championships, but you still need a bit more pop (ie Chris Young in ARZ).
Dodgers 87-75- Good team, but not as good as the top 3.
Giants 67-95- Contend with O's for last in MLB, but lke role of spoilers at end of year.
