To whet your baseball appetities, Sports Illustrated’s Joe Posnanski has predictions for each team and makes division breakdowns on his blog.
Catchers and pitchers report for some teams tomorrow.
I’m going to wait on making any predictions until the regular season is upon us. But I will say I still think the AL Central will be a two-team race between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox.
I see Posnanski has the Twins winning the Central by seven games. But I don’t think it’s going to be that easy, and people shouldn’t dismiss the White Sox too quickly.
Is Andruw Jones their starting DH? Yes. Is that absurd? Of course.
But that rotation still has a bona fide ace in Jake Peavy. Then there’s Mark Buehrle, Gavin Floyd and John Danks, all of whom had ERAs of 4.06 or less last season.
Don’t get me wrong. I think the Twins are the favorites. But if they win the division by seven games, then a lot of things went right.
Anyway, it’s a good read. Check it out above.
