 American League West:

While the differences in wins are smaller in this division, they match up cleanly with our predicted standings. We project a slight edge for the Houston Astros over the Texas Rangers, who have worked hard during the offseason to bring themselves into contention. We project the Seattle Mariners to be only a few ticks behind the Rangers, and only slightly better than the Los Angeles Angels.  With the exception of the Oakland Athletics, our numbers seem to indicate that the BBE crew believes this will be a hotly contested division, and exciting to watch.

Houston Astros – 87
Texas Rangers – 85
Seattle Mariners – 81
Los Angeles Angels – 80
Oakland Athletics – 71

    Hahahahahaha Indians and Tigers the same at 84, ahahahaha no!

    Tigers are going to win 91 games, the Tribe will win 82, Royals are going to tumble, their magic trick has been exposed and they are a weaker team this year, 87. Tigers are going to win the division.
    Also, without Hunter the Twins aren’t going to break 80, the Sox might surprise people and do it.

      I suppose that opinion ha snothing to do with being a Tigers fan (lol) We’ll see… we’ll come back later in the season and see what happens… as we all know, it could be nearly anything.
