As a Dodger fan, I was ready for McCourt to tell Manny to go kick rocks. If they would have pulled their offer and spring training got closer, Manny would have had to take a one year deal. Tough to say though, Manny is the type of guy that will sit out if he had to. At the end of the day he makes our team better and is the only real source of power we have. I’m more worried about our pitching staff. Losing Penny, Lowe & Saito is big, so we need the young guys to step up. Giants pitching staff is pretty deep on paper, to bad their offense looks like a AAA team.
AL East should be a 3 team race again. The Yankee’s are much improved and I think the Red Sox might be taking a step back by just getting older. Will the Ray’s take a step back or forward? You never know with these young teams. David Price looks for real though.
I can see the Tigers and the Indians bouncing back in the AL Central if healthy and the twins always find a way to be in it.
AL West is the Angeles by default, although I think the A’s could surprise people this year.
NL East should be interesting with the Mets and Phil’s with the Braves and Marlins a notch below. Each team has their issues, but could be great on any given night.
NL Central should be a walk for the Cubs, but you know how that goes…..
Can’t wait for the season to start!
