Royals? Pirates? I thought they contracted those teams in the 1990's cause neither of them has had a winning season since before the strike?

Philly has too much pitching to be this bad. They will probably need to trade for a bat though depending on what happens with Howard and Utley. The Angels have a good lineup and 4 really good starters. They will rebound.

Philly will be fine. They are only a handful of games behind the Braves and Nats and both those teams are on fire to start the season. It'll even out in the end. The race will be tight but I expect them to take the NL East again.

Angels will be fine too. Couple their slow start with a fast start from Texas and things don't look too pretty. But Texas will go through a weak stretch and LAA will go through a good one and they'll finish 5 or so games out of first place and they'll take one of the two wild cards.

Boston is the big team that I feel is most in trouble. I expect Lester to be fine but Beckett can have hit or miss seasons and the rest of the rotation is a mess. The bullpen flat out sucks and Andrew Bailey isn't going to fix that on his own. I think Ellsbury and Crawford come back strong and the offense carries them but I still think they're a 4th place team.

Good win by CC and the Yankees as they pound Derek Holland for 7ER.

Jeter with a 4 for 5 night and is now hitting over .400 with an OPS of 1.080. Since coming off the DL last year and getting his 3000th hit he has been raking (he's hitting ~.340 since then)

Sutcliffe was just saying some mind-numbingly stupid things on the ESPN broadcast. I think he's accepted the mantle of worst baseball broadcaster working today.

Twins are convinced that the Red Sox are awesome, so they pooped their pants with the game in control. That, or the bullpen just sucks and Mauer and the 4-5 hitters shouldn't be expected to plate a runner from 3rd with no-one out because small ball is for pussies (just like the long ball is).

Good point. I totally agree -- especially now since the change to the playoffs that lets in another Wild Card team, but puts them at a much steeper disadvantage over the division winners than ever before.

Here is my proposal:

4 divisions: NL East, NL West, AL East, AL West

Each division has a division winner get a bye and 2 wildcard teams each division play a play-in game to play the division winner in a 5 game series. Then you would have the NL East vs NL West and AL East vs AL West for the LCS.

That would make it more fair for wildcards as you would compete for wildcard in your division only so every team would play the same schedule. Plus it would keep the focus on divisions and not having a bunch of teams from different divisions competing for the 2 wildcard spots with different schedules.

Plus it would take the playoff field up to 12 teams so that would help the smaller market teams slip into those final wildcard spots.
