    Yankees youngster Luis Severino had quite the tutor this offseason -- none other than former Red Sox great and Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez. Severino asked Martinez for help and Martinez worked with his fellow Dominican during five sessions.

    I predict that I am going to predict the Orioles to be in last place, and for the 3rd straight year I'll be very wrong.

    This looks like a division that won't be settled until about the 8th of October.

    Translation:

    The Yankees will make the playoffs on my PS4 in 2017 because I'm controlling what Joe Girardi does, watch out AL East, the Yankees are back!

    Hi.

    We're screwed. If anyone can manage to hit a ball against us to either OF corner they'll get an inside-the-park HR.

    Enjoy. I'm probably gonna stream Cleveland games all year.

    More of the same for the O's. Shouldn't have resigned Trumbo and instead used that money for a midgrade SP for this season, and shoot for a top SP next season.

    I think the Red Sox win the East but the race for 2nd is going to be fun to watch. I think Toronto, the Yankees and Baltimore all can finish 2nd in the division.

    I know I'm not either of them but as an O's fan, I'll give my two cents. They are going to be the same team essentially. Subbed out Wieters for Castillo, you have Smith as one of many utility outfielders and just got rid of one useless starter in Gallardo. I see them probably around 85 wins and maybe in contention for a wild card spot. I see them and the Yankees battling for 3rd place in the division.

    Forgot to add that it's going to suck with Chris Tillman likely starting the season on the DL.

    O's ace Tillman (shoulder) might start on DL

    The next couple of years will be interesting for this team with a lot of key guys up for free agency. I'm interested in seeing who Dumpster Diving Dan targets to re-sign and who he lets walk. I have a feeling that Manny is done in Baltimore after the 2018 year though regardless. If they fall out of it at some point the next couple of years, I wouldn't be opposed to trading him (or anyone else of value) for a load of prospects since our minor league depth is really thin.
