Obviously we can count Texas out for this year.

Has anyone noticed that the Rangers have built some solid bullpens in the last few years? The starters haven't picked up the slack, though. They have some fierce young hitters but a muddled lineup.

AL West
1. Tex-Mex Rangers (remember the Alamo!)
2. Seattle Slew (beat that dead horse)
3. Los Angeles Fallen Angels (they've fallen and can't get back up)
4. Jokeland Athletic Supporters (they have the 'itch' to win also)

Texas Rangers: Great hitters, and that is the only thing they got going for them.

Disaster team(s)? Baltimore, Oakland, Texas, K.C. and Minnesota.

I really like this guy a lot more than Botts or Cruz. He's younger and has proven at least for a short time that he can hit and is more than adequate in the field. I hope he gets a lot of playing time this year.
