1. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Look at this pitching rotation: Haren, Weaver, Santana, and new signee C.J. Wilson from the Texas Rangers. That's a double whammy. Next, they added Albert Pujols to the lineup. With Pujols in the AL, he will now be able to rest by being the DH every once in a while. Plus, Kendry Morales is back as well.
2. Texas Rangers. There are too many question marks to put the defending AL West champs in first this season. How willreact to being in the Big Leagues? Will relapse again?
3. Oakland A's. The Athletics added pop to their lineup with Josh Reddick,, and Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes. (If you lived in Cuba, then you would try to defect as well.) The rotation will be hurt a little bit without Trevor Cahill.
4. Seattle Mariners. They are still in rebuilding mode.
