re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Don't want to upset Dub but I'm just very skeptical of the Angels' pitching in general (Weaver is a real ace but every other guy in the rotation at least has a sizable question mark, though one would hope that C.J. Wilson will be significantly better coming off his elbow surgery and Vargas should be consistent), but especially their bullpen. Like he keeps saying, it was their bullpen that was the real story of woes last year.

Not sure how many of those babe-like youthful A's pitchers will regress or actually improve, but based on what they did, coupled to the strength of their 'pen vs. the Angels, it makes things very interesting in spite of that freakish-on-paper lineup the Angels boast.

Tigers should have a significantly deeper, scarier lineup with Torii Hunter batting second and Victor Martinez back in the #5 hole behind Cabrera and Fielder. Right field was a massive hole for Detroit pretty much all last year, and if the admittedly old Hunter can offer anything close to what he was delivering for the Angels, they should be in much better shape. However, I'm a little bit unconvinced that Scherzer can deliver a 2012-like 2013 for them, particularly with his right shoulder history. And their bullpen still seems thin to me. Nevertheless, they're probably going to be an all-around better team this year. At least that is what you would think with the Hunter acquisition and Martinez making his return.

I distinctly remember watching the White Sox blow three games against the Kansas City Royals in September last year, on MLB Network.

Those three games alone, had they gone Chicago's way, would have made the AL Central a tied affair with the Tigers by season's end.

But it gets worse.

To put it in perspective, the White Sox went 6-12 against the Kansas City Royals in 2012. (6-12 was also their record against the Tigers, fittingly enough.) Tigers, meanwhile, went 13-5 against the lowly Royals.

White Sox really needed to take care of internal AL Central business and righteously squash that KC tomato can.

Things could have been very different.

And, indeed, the White Sox had a pythagorean in 2012 of 88-74, the exact same record their rival division-winner boasted.

Angels own the Tigers? Let's see the Angels actually make the playoffs first, talk about laughing stock.

that's been the Whitesox problem, could never beat KC and Minnesota if our lives depended on it. Especially when Minnesota was still playing at the metrodome. THE WORST.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

World Baseball Classic

Does anyone care? Don't know much about Japan, but I'm assuming they're gonna bring it again. Obviously the Dominicans are REALLY good at baseball, but they won't have Pujols, Bautista, or PAPI. They still boast EE, Cano, Hanley, and Reyes in the infield though. The Venezuelans are damn good too. Anrdus, Prado, MIGGY, Cargo, and Panda. DR and Venezuela are in the same grouping though. I'm not sure if only one team comes out of each group, but it'd be good for the US if that was the case.

The US will have some problems with these teams assuming they even advance.
