I made the first set of preseason predictions 2 months ago before spring training games started. Since then there have been several injuries, player roles have been redefined and teams have finalized opening day rosters. The season starts this weekend, so time for an updated set of projections, by division:
No major events in spring training, so I still expect the Red Sox to win. Tampa and New York will fight for a wildcard spot. Toronto and Baltimore, while both greatly improved, are still impaired by having to play more than 1/3 of their games against the above teams.
Twins are still the class of this division. The Tigers and White Sox could contend but will be looking up most of the season, and KC and Cleveland will be out of the race by Victoria Day (or Memorial Day for those readers South of the 49th).
