Best Teams to Pitch against

Postby Big Game James » Sat Apr 03, 2004 3:06 pm

Who are your top 10 teams that you will definitely pitch against this season? I don't follow baseball too much, so I'm trying to get an idea of what matchups I should look for. Who are the worst teams this year?

Gold mines - pitchers parks, weak offenses:
1. Detroit
2. Pittsburgh
3. Los Angeles

Terrible offenses, but hitter friendly parks:
4. Milwaukee
5. Cleveland
6. Montreal (just beware games in Puerto Rico, a hitters paradise)

Pitchers parks, mediocre offenses:
7. Oakland
8. NY Mets

Question marks:
9. Cincinnati - if Kearns and Dunn break out and Griffey gets healthy, balls could be flying out of this homer friendly park all year. But thats a lot of ifs.
10. Tampa Bay - Park is neutral. Devil Rays are historically an easy matchup but have a lot of young hitting talent.
11. Florida - Pitchers park and they lost some very good hitters. But there is lots of young talent and wins will be tough to come by given the quality of pitching.
12. San Francisco - park is very friendly to pitchers, but the Bonds factor still looms large. If Barry struggles for any reason, this could be a great matchup.

i like what Spartans said...

i was having trouble coming up with a defenite 10, but here's my top 5 in order

1. Pittsburgh
2. Milwaukee
3. Los Angeles
4. Oakland
5. Detroit

i would be careful with the mets, indians, and drays 0 they have alot of sleepers and possible break-outs so those 3 could turn into some very tough line-ups during the season..
