AL East – I know it hasn’t started out the way some O’s fans would like, but for the first time ever, I’m picking the O’s to win the division.  I think the pitching will be good enough over the course of the season to get the job done.  The Rays have lost 3/5’s of their rotation but i still think they manage to make the playoffs. As much as I hate admitting it, I have the Red Sox as the other Wild Card.  I really like the Yankees starting pitching, but I’m concerned with the entire infield. I believe the Blue Jays are still a year or 2 away.

AL Central – There is no question that the Tigers are the cream of the crop in this division.  They have the best pitching and the best hitter on the planet.  I believe the Royals take a big step forward and finish second in the division just missing out on the playoffs. The Indians and White Sox will be competitive, but I don’t believe they have enough pitching talent to put them over the top.  Minnesota might be the worst team in baseball.

AL West – The Oakland Athletics will win this division yet again.  Great young arms and timely hitting seems to get it done every year. Sonny Gray will be a CY Young candidate by the end of the year. Texas and Anaheim( I refuse to call them LA), are lacking in the pitching department.  I believe Texas will push for a playoff spot, but in the end they both miss out.  I like the Mariners more than some, but they are a year or two away. I don’t need to speak about the Astros, they are stockpiling young talent.
