I think The Tribe have a chance, their pitching though is suspect.  I do think its going to be a lot closer than it has been the last three years between them, the Twins and the ChiSox

I'm not happy with the final cuts made by the Twins.  Letting Resto go and demoting Tiffee instead of dumping Lecroy, Rivas, Castro and Corky seems like a mistake.  Gardy wasted 4 spots on catchers.  If Mauer can't do it, make him a 3B or OF and go out and get a solid C instead of hanging onto Corky and LeCroy.  Their bench is not going to be very deep.  Hopefully the starters stay healthy or things will get ugly.

My preseason picks:
Central - Indians

Hey!  No picking the Indians allowed in this thread...  :P

I'll cut you some slack though because if it weren't for that, your picks would look a lot like mine.   ;)

Sorry Jeff.  I just think the Twins "magic" is gonna run out.  They've lost some more key people, just like Oakland did last season and their run ended as well.  I just really like what the Tribe has going right now.  I think they could end up being the new Twins.

Yeah, the scary part is I can see it too... the Indians are a bigger threat this year than they have been in the past 2-3 years.

Better to not believe it and pretend it can't happen since it's only the first month of the season.  I just can't start bad mouthing my boys so early in the year, ya know?   ;)

Go Twins!

Like I said, I think their pitching is their weakness.  The Twins have no depth so they better hope they stay healthy :-\

And just as I say I think the Twins run in the Central is finished, the "experts" at ESPN.com are picking the Twins to win it all!

That was funny when Kruk picked the Tigers and was going on about their attributes while the written graphic said he was going with the Twins.


Yanks win, and the Red Sox are in for an 81-81 season with weak pitching, worse if Schilling is out for a prolonged period.

Nice outting by the Unit last night.

I'm still thoroughly perplexed as to how/why there's preseason games (Dodgers/Angels) going on the same day as regular season games.  Very bizarre...

Glad to see the Yanks putting a hurt on Boston (hate the Sox.)

Some good games today.  The Mets bullpen, as predicted, is going to be their weakness.  Wonder what ol' Pedro thought about their performance, lol.
