Going with the Indians for various reasons:
Feels like if the Twins don't have a good April, they could easily fall into the funk they found themselves in last year. We will be better (how could we not be), but have a bad feeling about Morneau and the shaky pitching.
Really like the Royals, but their pitching keeps them held back until next year.
White Sox, I miss Ozzie already...and they will miss Quentin and Buehrle. Too many bloated contracts to make it to the top, well almost to the top.
Indians seem like a pedestrian team on paper, but they played well last year and added some pitching. As long as they get some production from Sizemore and Choo, I think they will be WELL short of the Tigers, but come out of the scrum for 2nd place in the crowded AL central quest for 2nd place.
Predicting the Tigers in a landslide, followed by 4 mediocre teams that will be struggling for .500 and finish within about 6 games of one another.
Hope I'm wrong and the Twins end out on top, followed by a rout of the Yankees in the postseason!
