    Probably.

    They seem pretty stacked. Video game team. Yankees up there too.

    PECOTA thinks so.



    I don't think I've ever seen a team projected for 103 wins. Even the Yankees' 99 wins is a pretty impressive projection.

    Hell yeah!

    Rangers looking good with that 73-89 projection.

    Manfred adds about five more teams to the proposed seven and we almost playoff contenders.

    The rotation looks good. The position players... not so much.

    I know.

    Why didn't they have a rotation like this during the PayRod years!

    Yes.

    Until the "just build a bigger Death Star" mentality gets them knocked out again.

    Nice value on the Rays and Twins, coming off 96 and 100 win seasons, respectively.

    I agree with the nice value on the Twins but not so much on the Rays.

    Yep, they all have a chance since every team is 0-0 right now.

    Huh? Rays projected at around 90+ wins at 30-1 isn’t good value?

    NO because they are in the AL East and the Yankees are heavily favored to win that division and it is highly doubtful that the Rays can win the World Series even if they become a wild card. On the other hand, the Twins have a very good shot at winning their division and going deep into the playoffs.
