mlb.com (et al?) Ranks Teams 1-30

Recommended Posts

World Series favorites from 1-30. "We" rank 'em

Generic "We." Different byline for each team...

Anyways... On the O's:

Quote

29. Baltimore Orioles

Leitch:.....and talk instead about the Orioles. On one hand, they were actually kind of fun last year, with a not-terrible bullpen and just enough hitting to keep you from changing the channel. On the other hand, the brass wasn't fooled by winning those few extra games and didn’t let it affect their long-term plan, such as it is, one whit. This is going to be a rebuilding team, probably for a couple of more years at least, but you can start to see the outline of what they are trying to build. With this franchise, that’s progress. And it keeps them out of the final pick of our draft.

 

Don't know who Leitch is but a pretty fair assessment imo. The bolded is the best part to me.

 

And... WE'RE NOT THE WORST! :clap:

I do not.  I think they will finish in the bottom third, sure, but not that far down.

I'd guess anywhere in the bottom 5 or 6. Lot of bad teams, but like us last year a little, we or anyone else could have some good stretches. I don't see us picking any better (worse) than 6th. But by the same token bad stretches could doom any of those teams. We could surely be last (#1 pick!) Almost random chance.

Hell, the Sawx are ranked 20th. They could really tank and we could actually finish 4th. :noidea:

Toronto, TB and NY are going to be tough as tho.

 

 

It could happen...
