Comments on the Upcoming Season

I don't see how the Yankees rotation beats the Red Sox rotation, and I think the Yankees hitters are all getting old.

If things go right for the Blue Jays, they could even sneak past the Yankees in the division this season if their pitching is healthy.

On the record - I am rooting for the Yankees this year for A-Rodís sake, so the Yankees fans will shut up about him already.

Just as 2005 was the year the White Sox did all the little things right, this will be the year that all the little things hurt the White Sox.

The Tigers are the only team in the AL Central with pitching, and so they are the only team I can pick.

Alex Gordon looks for real, for real, for real for the Royals. He seems too good to be true.

Look for a good year from Brad Wilkerson - last season was a fluke, and the Rangers are good for one good outfielder season per year.

NY Mets - David Wright improves, Jose Reyes regresses a little, and Carlos Beltran returns to his old self.

How can the Brewers not win the NL Central? No other team has half the talent of the Brewers.

Alfonso Soriano Prediction - 32 HR, 87 RBI, 93 runs, .270/.310/.470/.780

All eyes are on the Dodgers Ė except mine. I am actually a Dodgers pitching believer, somewhat - I can not talk bad about Derek Lowe's three year demise from 2002-2004 without speaking well of his three year assent from 2004-2006. Still, I think the Padres just matchup better.

Derek Lowe Fun Fact Part I - Lowe gave up one less earned run from 2005 to 2006, but he gave up 14 less homeruns.

Derek Lowe Fun Fact Part II - Lowe gave up one less earned run from 2005 to 2006, but he gave up 16 fewer unearned runs, indicating that he was more successful because the defense behind him was more successful.

Derek Lowe Fun Fact Part III - Lowe walked the same number of batters (55) in four fewer inning in 2006, and he struck out 23 fewer hitters.

Derek Lowe Fun Fact Part IV - Lowe posted almost exactly the same ERA from 2005 to 2006 - 3.61 vs. 3.63 - but the league ERA went from 4.22 to 4.49, and the league ERA adjusted for ballpark went from 4.06 to 4.58. Lowe was the same pitcher, but the league got worse around.
