Projected Divisional Standing

Third in AL West


  1. Third Place seems a big wish! It'll be easier this year for Jon and the boys upstairs as they've lost this fan.

  2. The Rangers, if you recall, won 18 out of their first 22 games last season and played the balance of their schedule barely over .500--and that was WITH Josh Hamilton, Mike Young and Mike Napoli. With the loss of firepower on offense and the loss of pitching--particularly Neftali Feliz--on the other side of the ball, it wouldn't surprise me that much if Texas morphs into a second division club, which is exactly what they played like over the second half of last season before choking their way out of the playoffs on the final day of the season. Hope I'm wrong, but I may not be...
