AL CENTRAL

by thoughtfulconservative

The Cleveland Indians are the defending champions, but the Tigers were active in the offseason. The Indians had the top-rated rotation, Borowski was the saves leader and a more than adequate offense. All those pieces are returning.

The Detroit Tigers improved themselves greatly with the additions of Willis, Cabrera, Renteria, and Jacque Jones. Their already lethal offense is now more so. If the pitching holds us, they could take it all. But I don’t think they will.

The once fearsome Chicago White Sox rotation is a shadow of its former self. The offense was last in the league last year and there have been no improvements. The reason I put them as high as third is because of the following two teams.

Johan Santana leaving for the Mets leaves big shoes to fill for the Minnesota Twins. If all the youngsters come through, they might finish higher.

That leaves the Kansas City Royals. They improved last year and didn’t lose 100 games. They probably won’t this year either. But they still need a lot of help and will finish last again.
