There are a few good teams. Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, Tigers, Angels and Rangers in the AL. The Phillies in the NL.

A few terrible teams. Astros, Mets, Pirates, Padres in the NL and Mariners, A's, Orioles in the AL.

And a bunch of average teams. Everyone else.

I'l be quite surprised if any teams outside of the good teams I mentioned in the AL make the playoffs.

The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox will NOT win 150 games together.

Lots of teams get off to slow starts. My Yankees are doing that as well, but the Sox pitching looks horrible. Back to back 10 run games. I picked them for 3rd in the east but who knows. Honestly I don't see them getting the wild card or being close. Maybe Toronto will finally move up in the division.

This is going to be a big letdown for Angel fans, but the acquisition of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson is not going to automatically send them to the World Series, as some die hards believe. In fact, do not see them winning their division, the Rangers look like repeaters. Wild card and early playoff elimination looks likely.
