AL East Preview and Prediction Post

The AL East, much like the AL West should be an intriguing division, because, like the AL West, there are three teams that have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs.

As has been the case for some time now, I think that two teams will make the playoffs from this division, so once again, a worthy team will be left out, the question is will it be the Rays, the Red Sox, or the Yankees.

I think the Rays are going to have another phenomenal season like the one that they had a couple of seasons ago which propelled them to the World Series.

The Red Sox could have the best rotation in the American League but their offense is fairly suspect.

The Yankees will have another very good offensive team and fairly good pitching.

Ultimately, I think the Yankees will be the team that gets left out, primarily because they won't be as hungry this year, and their pitching staff is an injury away from being terrible.

Tampa Bay Rays

Boston Red Sox

New York Yankees

Baltimore Orioles

Toronto Blue Jays
