I wouldn't be counting Toronto out of winning the division, though I still can't believe they are content with the awful Shannon Stewart in left field. If they had actually signed Barry Bonds a month and a half ago when they released Frank, they would probably be 1st already. The pitching has been that good.
Of course I don't see the Yankees being out of it either. They can still pay for solutions to most of their problems, and will be happy to do so.
And Boston is still Boston. Maybe they'll actually have the guts to sign Barry Bonds.
How did I know you'd say something about Toronto being in it?
They could pull an '05 White Sox, but I don't think so.
Well according to this, they should be very much players this season: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/stati ... ndings.php
Their pitching (Halladay, Burnett, McGowan, Marcum, Litsch) is insane, and they are still 3 games over .500 without their best offensive player.
I like the look of Tampa's team, but it is still very early to say anything.
