Damn those Yankees look good :~(

As much as I think Milton Bradley will breakout this year with 30 homers, I would still rank the Rangers ahead of Oakland...

Cleveland and Tampa are way too high.

Both have too many young guys that aren't proven, IMO. I like both lineups, but I feel they have to prove themselves a little more. They have some great hitters in Hafner, and VMART. Some guys who could be great in Sizemore, Peralta and Marte (AAA). Belliard, Blake, Broussard and Micaels are just OK.

TB, way too young. Is Gomes that legit? I wouldn't jump the gun and say he is. Gathright hasn't done anything. Baldelli has upside, but he K's an awful lot and missed over a year. Huff has declined, even though he puts up solid numbers. Lugo is good, but is he that good? Hall is good for a catcher, but in the grand scheme of things he's below average. Crawford is the real deal. Cantu, is he for real? Young has yet to prove himself in the big leagues.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

yankees are number 1, easily. There are no holes in that lineup. If giambi gives them a full season of last year's 2nd half, look out.

Ill take Tampa or Clevelands Offence then Bosox anyday.

Gathright isnt even a starter. So i dont know why he even has him on the starting list. And i cant see him batting leadoff, when they have Lugo.

It's not the lineup anyone disputes. It's the pitching.

Because they only have 2 studs. And once mannys gone, there O's gona be a mess unless they sign a big FA. I liek Coco but I duno. Other then Ortiz and Manny, Its a mess. Just a bunhc of vets , nothing great. As in Rays, thye have alot of young talent brewing . I think every team in the MLB would take a OF, of Young, Crawlford and Roco. Tampas infield is a lil weak but they have some prospects coming up who should be decent. Wes at first , then they have some young kid at SS, hopefully they move Upton to third, and have Cantu at 2nd.
