So our last thread is a month old and we need a new one. So here it is with a preview of the divisions.
Tampa looks to be the cream of the class here. The Yankees try to play it sabre-metrically with great hitting, and ignoring defense. Only the Angels have a lower rated defense. Baltimore tries to dig its way out of a $1 million hole. Boston is attempting to have it's 2nd season over .500 in 7 years and Toronto tries to avoid losing 100 games for the 4th straight season.
Kansas City returns with Murder's Row and looks to repeat as champions. They could slug .800 and I wouldn't be shocked. The Machine looks to ride Tucker Hanley to a 16 playoff birth in 17 years. Minnesota would like to make some money as their owner is now selling ad space on the player's underwear. Detroit and Cleveland lost 100 games last year.
Seattle finally wrestled away the division away from Texas, and their strong rotation looks to be back. Oakland can only pitch and play defense, and let's see if they can get more than 1 game over .500. After 4 straight division titles Texas took a break from winning and let's see if they can return to glory. The Angels have a 79 rated defense and their shortstop and third baseman are rated 67 defenders.
And there's the National League CPUs. If you're interested in joining please post here.
