    The Red Sox and Phillies are the two most hyped teams for this season. Let me hear some opinions on how they will do this season.

      I'm a Sox fan, too, but the Phillies rotation is ridiculously good.  I'm not going to be premature about these two teams head-to-head.

      Right now, the Yankees stand in the way of the Sox.  That's about it in the East.  The Yankees have a strong line-up and a solid bullpen.  The Sox rotation is better on paper, but if Beckett flubs up and Lackey isn't at least just above average, Boston isn't much stronger than New York.

      I'll tell you one thing, for sure.  I can't wait to see Boston's lineup on Opening Day.

    RedSox will probably fair better than the Phillies, but then again, I don't care what happens in the National League.

    I'm a RedSox fan. smile

    The Red Sox will finish second in the East to the Jays, who will go on to defeat the Phillies in the World Series.

    The Series will go to a game 7, and Doc will have a no hitter going into the 9th, but will give up a solo home run.

    It will be glorious

          In the very, very distant future, perhaps.

            Hey, if I loosened my arm up, I could play for any team I wanted.  (And be a good hitting pitcher, too!)  Sorry, Greek.

    The Red Sox lineup is going to be one that I would want to have to take the mound against.  They should have no trouble scoring runs.  They do need to shore up their pitching staff and need Josh Beckett to return to form in 2011.  I am an avid Red Sox fan and am optimistic about our prospects for the coming season.

    Sox look strong with their off-season additions.  Interestingly enough, I wouldn't sleep on the Rays, especially if they can get one more back of the 'pen arm in a trade. Andrew Friedman is the king of the scrap-heap move.  Yankees could end up in 3rd place in the division as their team gets older and their pitching could be a mess. 
    Jays and O's will be improved, though Toronto's pitching is a couple years out and the O's need a lot of help at a lot of positions, though a complete change of philosophy for the organization that we saw at the end of last season will go a long way to really improving that team.    The AL East really is murderers row.   Three teams are projected to have 90+ wins, the Jays are projected just under that and the O's may play .500 ball. Did I say murderer's row???

    The Phillies look to have an all-star pitching rotation, and must count on their line-up staying healthy all year.  The Braves are young, but can't be counted out...and the Marlins are good, but not good enough.  The Mets are a disgrace, the most over-payed AAA team of all-time.  The Nats are a couple of years out with their young core.   Braves are playing for the wildcard.
    Frankly the interesting devision in the National League is the Central.
