Those indians had arguably the best player at each position. What cost them is pitching. New York has enough pitching to win 11 games in the playoffs imho.

that sounds pretty realistic. houston probably has them beat but i honestly see a drop in pettitte's performance now that he's in minute maid park and not a yankee anymore. clemens should be ok but hes getting older and i'd take a healthy brown over him anyday. oswalt is golden and miller is good too. slight advantage to houston. oakland's 3 are just unbelievable so they are better. cubs also probably get the slight nod. bosox might be better but vazquez might be as good as schilling this season and brown is a better pitcher than lowe when he's healthy.

it should be fun to watch though especially from my standpoint because i'm a yankee fan.
