Going to be a tight race I think.
Seattle's got it the roughest, but Beltre/Sexson really didn't do much the first half, so I expect both to do better this half, which will help them quite a bit. I think their starting pitching is what will determine how their season turns out. Longest shot of the bunch to win the division in my opinion.
Oakland needs Harden healthy. They are actually hitting the ball this year, so mixed with their pitching (I'd say good pitching, but Blanton's been horrible, along with Harden being injured), they should definitely be in the race. A healthy Harden, and if Blanton can rebound, then they will be tough to beat.
The Angels have been really good lately, and have a nice rotation to go with their hitting. If they keep it all up, they will be in the race as well.
Texas? We need our starting pitching to improve. There's no way the hitting continues to stink like it has, so offense isn't a worry. It's all going to boil down to how our starting pitching goes, and I'm not too comfortable with that. Even a healthy Eaton isn't a very good option in my opinion, so we need Millwood/Padilla/Loe to be solid for us to have a chance.
It's baseball though, and anything can happen. I won't quit cheering for the Rangers unless we get mathematically eliminated.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
