Team Projections: AL Central
White Sox 73-89
KC Royals 73-89
This is pretty much how I picked these teams last year, and aside from the Royals they finished in close to the opposite order. I'm going out on a limb here and say they do as expected this time. If the Royals and White Sox are fighting it out for the division lead, then it will be another opposite year, and my suggestion is to approach the first beautiful woman you see and introduce yourself as "Hello, my name is George. I'm unemployed and I live with my mother".
Cleveland has a lot of talent, but they need the bats of Travis Hafner and Victor Martinez to be healthy this time, to go along with superstar Grady Sizemore, the emerging Shin Soo Choo, a solid Jhonny Peralta, and the addition of very steady vet Mark DeRosa. If Matt LaPorta emerges as the first baseman, the Indians should have a powerhouse lineup. They'll need it, as the rotation behind Cliff Lee is not impressive, and Lee is not really as good as he looked last year.
