This year, we had a whole division full of tough teams and division rivals. Thi syear though, Detroit faded at the beginning of the season by starting 0-7. Cleveland traded away C.C. Sabathia early in the season, so the whole Cleveland staff was a number one starter(Cliff Lee) and then a few number 4 starters. The Twins stayed strong all year after trading away Johan Santana for almost a dozen prospects.
I only see the division getting tougher next year. Cleveland will have to aim for the division championship. Kansas City will go and waste 40 million on some bad verteran, Detroit will deplete their farm system for one or two good players. I just hope the Twins don't have a change of Owner and suddenly go crazy and finally spend 50 million on free agents like every team does every offseason. The White Sox will have a tough division on their hands. I think the White Sox need to get rid of Orlando Cabrera for shure. But also sign one or two bullpen pitchers and one starter. The White Sox's key next year will not be hitting, the key will be pitching.
I know someone will say "not hitting?" I mean that the white Sox have a power house hitting already. They need to improve their pitching.
