it's a couple of days into the season. so what. shut up and like it.
why'd i pick the twins? i don't know. they do have johan santana. maybe shit will work out for them this year. the indians lost c.c. for a minute. and the other c.c. (coco crisp) for eternity. not that that was a bad trade. it just delayed their competitiveness.
i wanted to put the orioles last but the d-rays pitching is so bad. why didn't i put the white sox first? their pitching is not that good. it's good, but not that good. but maybe i'm being an idiot. they get to run out a decent-to-good starter every day. that adds up over the season (cf braves, 1991--present. of course the braves had better pitchers.)
nl west is a mess anybody could win except the rockies. none of those teams are any good. the central is a little gummy in the middle. will the brewers live up to their talent? will the cubs get anything out of wood and prior? will the astros get clemens back? all of these things could have a big impact.
nl east is easy. the mets don't have the pitching to beat the braves. and those young braves are gonna be better. the marlins are obviously last; the phillies are obviously better than the nationals.
red sox in the east? it's all about curt schilling. healthy schilling adds wins. beckett's good too. blue jays out-power the yankees. al west? i always pick the a's!
