    I think it'll be between the A's and Rangers, with the A's winning the West by 5 games. That's just my opinion.

    Go A's!! :yahoo:

    You won't be catching anyone by surprise this year and you don't get a cupcake schedule in the second half. Texas by 3 games. Go rangers. :yahoo:

    Considering our pitching injuries and Michael Young killing us, and Hamilton quitting on us, about like I'd expect. This a whole new season. Try living in the present and being relevant for more than one season before you get so high and mighty.

    Btw, Texas leads the series against Oakland 6-4. Hope you can keep up when you're not playing the Astros every other week.

    I would have a very difficult time betting against the Rangers but to not have the Angels even in the discussion is all I care about. Priceless! :yahoo:

    I think the Rangers will win the west. They need to pick up a bat but I think they have enough to take it. I'm glad they got rid of that tool, Josh Hamilton. I guess God wanted him to go to L.A. and suck. God bless his douchebagginess.

    The schedule is going to favor the Rangers through August. they both start the month off playing each other then the Rangers have 20 games against, Astros (7), Brewers, M's, White Sox, Twins. The A's have Astros sprinkled there in the middle of the month but start off against Rangers, Reds, Blue Jays, and finish with a 3 game series against the O's, 4 game series against the Tigers, and finish with Rays. It's baseball funny things happen, but I really feel the Rangers have a better chance of moving ahead of the A's by a few games going into the last month of the season.

    Seems to me that the race is pretty wide opened. A's are the favorite, but the Rangers getting some pitchers back from the DL could help them a lot. There are also the possible suspensions of Cruz and Colon looming, not to mention the LAA heating up. Should be a good race.

    If pitching develops .....yes. Otherwise we will fall further out. This team is ragged out and tired. But on the positive side, Ogando, Harry, Lewis Darvish all return to form then anything could happen;

    all it has taken is for 4 of 5 Rangers SP to be on the DL for you to get a tiny lead.

    Really looking forward to the race.

    A's should fall back to earth soon enough.

    Angels coming on a bit.

    Texas always dangerous.
