    Oakland, we'll see, but the Angels and Rangers will bring them back to earth pretty soon. They cannot hit whatsoever and their pitching isn't even as good as last year.

    KC has no pitching. None. They won't be a contender until they get at least 2 good pitchers.
    That's why I said they have been lucky. While they won't keep it up, they're messing with other teams records.

    If Henderson Alvarez is for real, and I'm inclined to believe he is...they have a pretty formidable 1-2 punch with he and Romero.

    Lord knows they're going to score.

    A true 4-team race for that division, and Boston has the worst team they've had in 10 years or so...

    Royals are being the typical Royals, all talk and no bark.

    The Orioles always come out guns blazing, I'm not buying...

    The gap between the Jays Rays and the Yanks and Sawx isn't the mile it once was. I'd love to see either of the first two unseat the Yanks and Sox. Can't stand them, the Yankees and Red Sox could both be fighting over last place and all of their games would still be nationally televised.

    Hosmer is a great player, Hall of Fame caliber future star.

    But until they get pitching, it won't matter.

    They have some nice prospects, but pretending Bruce Chen and Jonathan Sanchez and Luke Hochevar are MLB caliber 1-2-3 is just a fantasy.

    Can you believe huber wanted Bruce Chen for $9 million? Thank God that guy isn't calling the shots.

    When did I say $9 million? As someone said in the Cavs forum, you argue like a 6th grader, stop making up stuff. I wanted him for the same price as our official BP practice pitcher Lowe. Lowe is our worst pitcher yet is making the most out of all of them. Have you seen Bruce Chen's stats? Better than old man Lowe's. Chen would have been a better 3rd/4th man than Lowe who throws up 80mph fastballs right down the middle of the plate.

    What sucks is that in Cleveland you fight over pitchers like Bruce Chen and Derek Lowe.

    Glad you have no idea who Bruce Chen is...Bruce Chen is literally THE guy who throws 80 pretty much all the time. He actually throws softer than Lowe, and you said you'd rather have him on this team.

    Difference is Lowe is throwing 80 because he's 50 and Chen throws 80 because that's all he can throw.

    He doesn't throw it right down the middle of the plate with no movement like Lowe. Those are called breaking balls. You must not know that since you only know the business side of baseball and not the actual game play.

    Yeah, Lowe's fastball is averaging 88 this season...but that couldn't make any less difference.

    Chen is garbage making 9 million over two years and hasn't pitched more than 155 innings in a year since 2005...
