Cleveland signed bourn to a four yr deal just a min ago.
The Blue Jays are a talented bunch but I'm not sure how adding a few risky players like Dickey will make them elite.
They don't need to be elite. They just need to be good to win the AL East this season.
Any teams could collapse with injuries these days. The Yankees are old, but they aren't going away anytime soon. Boston is an unknown but the team chemistry should improve a lot this year. As for the Orioles, they dealt with a lot of injuries last year and moved past that. Yes, they won some close games, but that wasn't without having to fill in some big holes. Tampa is always consistent and their pitching will keep them in there along with a healthy Longoria this year.
they added the marlins, the marlins sucked ass
Dodgers won't be that great
Who is hitting leadoff for the Braves?
The Yankees aren't that good right now. Jeter is coming off a major injury, A-Rod is out, Tex is aging quickly and isn't the same at the plate anymore, Granderson isn't what he was when he first came to the Yankees, Gardner will never be anything special, Ichiro is older than Babe Ruth, CC is getting to the point where he will start breaking down easier, Pineda is coming off shoulder injury, and really the rest of the team outside of the bullpen is nothing special.
Chemistry is big in baseball, but it won't mean much with the Red Sox' current setup.
Where is the pitching going to come from on a consistent basis for the Orioles? The hitting isn't terrible, but is definitely reliant on the ole 3 run homer a game method.
If the Rays can find a way to protect Longoria at the plate this year, they could be good, but I just don't see them competing consistently among the upper echelon teams in the AL, let alone the MLB as whole.
Depends if they are healthy or not.
How many strikeouts is the Braves lineup going to have this year? Record breaking season?
Tellls you what I think of the AL East this year.
Was awesome last year until he broke his hand.
you win the prize +1
The Braves are going to be sick this year. Can't wait till opening day.

He said "Fister."
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Kiss the rings
All SoCal World Series from here on out. Deal with it, folks.
Jair Jurijens (unlikely)
We'll do what we did last year and mix and match out of this group and whoever else we may add. Combine that with a lineup as deep as any and the best bullpen in baseball and we are much better than 14th.
We gonna serve that Anaheim Dream Team right from jump......
The Jays already had a pretty decent core anyway, all these guys were just missing pieces.
Reyes was the leadoff hitter and speedster the Jays needed. Also a big upgrade at SS over Escobar who was a cancer. Bonifacio is solid depth, and Melky could be a decent addition and is better than Travis Snider.
Josh Johnson, RA Dickey, Mark Buerhle >>>>>>>>>>>>> Henderson Alvarez, Chad Hutchinson, Kyle Drabek
Jays also improved their bullpen so far this off-season, and gain back Sergio Santos for injury.
We might not be a great team, but we are AL East favorites IMO.
Only way the Reds make it past the Dodgers is if Chapman starts 4 times in the NLCS.
We cracking the Angels first... there might be 50 home runs hit that weekend in the GASP! Doyers? long on promise short on delivery mang...
1. Reyes SS
2. Melky LF
3. Bautista RF
4. Edwin Encarnacion DH
5. Adam Lind 1B (really need to replace Lind)
6. Brett Lawrie
7. Colby Rasmus
8. J.P Arrencibia
9. Macier Izturis/ Bonafacio
Jays also have so decent arms in case some of their rotation gets injured. Bullpen still scares me.
