2010 MLB Season Preview: Seattle Mariners

>> Saturday, April 3, 2010

The Seattle Mariners seem to have the right formula, defense, strong pitching, and run prevention. They lost 101 games in 2008, improved by 24 wins in 2009, and then went out an added an all star in fielder, and a bonified co ace to pair with Felix Hernandez. The expectations for the Mariners could not be higher, but they still have a few unanswered questions.


2010 MLB Season Preview: Texas Rangers

New ownership is on the horizon, but the command structure will remain in tact. The Rangers will be looking to build on a 2009 winning record. 2009 was the first time since 2004, and just the second time since 1999 that the club finished a season with a winning record. However trouble looms this team was in first place as late as July 10th last season, but wound up 10 games behind American League West Champion LA Angels. The club's success lies with their starting rotation, since they had a down year offensively last season.


2010 MLB Season Preview: Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have won three straight division titles, they probably have the deepest starting rotation in theAmerican League West, the have a fast break offense, and they still have Manager Mike Scioscia. However they took a beating over he off season, gone are four Angel mainstays, however they may remain the team to beat. However the AL West is wide open, as the other teams out west were busy adding pieces.


New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox

The biggest rivalry in all of sports continues tomorrow night. The Yankees will visit Fenway for the first time this season, and the Red Sox will use their home-field advantage attempting to come out of the series ahead in the standings.

2010 MLB Season Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates

The goal each and every year for the past 17 years has been to finish the season with a .500 record. This year the Pirates will once again try to break the curse of Barry Bonds, they have not had a winning season since Barry left town 17 years ago. It seems in 2010 that the lineup could be good enough to break even, but their are big questions in the starting rotation, and we all have to wonder when management will decide someone makes too much money and trades them to a contender. That is all the Pirates are anymore, a developmental team for the rest of baseball. Don’t like it, step up Pirates management and prove me wrong.
