Breaking Down the American League East

Breaking down the American League East

The American League east seems to be very competitive this year with the Baltimore Orioles spending an a lucrative amount of funds on 5 players while the Boston  Red Sox spent 217 million on one player and made various trades to get better. The Tampa Rays will continue to be the Rays and make trades to get better. While the Toronto blue jays lost David Price they still have a pretty great offense. The Yankees got better via trades w/ out spending any funds on major league free agents.

Baltimore Orioles- The Baltimore Orioles will definitely get more better on offense while they traded for Mark Trumbo although Mark Trumo is a defensive liability you have to play him in the field because Baltimore traded for him for his power bat this guy can swing the lumber and he’s still young. Also Matt Weiters accepted the QO because he had a down year in 2015 so he took the 1 year QO so he can restock his value because he needs to be the force in the middle of that lineup to drive in runs and he needs to be a catalyst for the pitching staff and help them up decent numbers but I highly doubt that. Chris Davis will be an imperative part as well even though he strikes out a lot he still hits the ball out of the park and he’s also a gap guy. Okay I can’t figure this out the O’S sign Alverez but I can’t believe he wasn’t tendered a contract by the Pirates so in hitter friendly Camden Yards he will double his home run total and get a multi year contract in 2017, so the O’S offense will be great. The pitching on the other hand I’m concerned about. I know they signed Gallardo but I don’t think that’s enough.

Boston Red Sox- Boston is an interesting team because they finished in last place the last two seasons but I think manager John Farrell is on a tight leash because in my estimation I think if they’re out by a substantial amount of games by the all star break Boston will fire him. It is imperative that they get off to a great start. Okay, so Boston signed David price this offseason he’s the true ace but after him the rotation is a concern nobody finished 200 plus innings in that rotation last year. It is important for that rotation especially to get off to a great start collectively and Clay Bucholtz needs to remain healthy in order for Boston to compete. I think Boston has a pretty good offense that can do damage if it was my team though I would keep mookie betts in CF and put JBJ in right. Hanley needs to stay healthy in order for him to be productive because Boston is paying him a lot of money to produce they’re not paying him to spend the majority of the season on the DL. If it was my team I wouldn’t put Hanley at first I would put him at third and put Panda at first because he’s bigger and you don’t have to range that far for first base. Pedrioa needs to stay healthy period. Another year older in his final season I don’t think you can doubt Ortiz to hit 35 plus home runs and drive in 135. If all these things mesh well they will be pretty good.

Tampa Rays- I just need to say this about Tampa they have a great pitching staff and more coming from the minors if they can just score enough runs on a consistent basis they will be a pretty potent team coming out of the AL East. I like the trade they made for Corey Dicerson in order to enhance the offense!! Dickerson hit 304 last year w/ the Rockies w/ 10 home runs. W/ more playing time I have no doubt he will enhance his numbers to make a strong line up that includes, Longoria,Loney,forsythe and Pearce. I like their offense this year!!

Toronto Blue Jays – Toronto has a potent offense there’s no doubt if Donaldson, Bautista and Encarnacion can put up the same numbers they put up in 2015 they can just put up enough runs to win games. Their Pitching staff is a concern after losing price. It’s still unknown what Marcus Stroman will do for 30 plus starts although he was impressive after coming back late last year due to injury posting a 4-0 1.67 era in 27.0 IP he’s the catalyst for this starting rotation. Although quick side note to mention he graduated from duke university while on the disabled list last year!!

New York Yankees- First of all let’s start w/ the 3 headed monster out of the bullpen. Betances, Miller, and Chapman these 3 guys led the major last year in bullpen strike outs. Betances- 131, Miller-100, Chapman-116 so our bullpen is one of our key strengths and I know he faltered late last year but you have to throw Shreves name in there he was dominant for the first five months. The offense was 2nd in runs last years so even though the veterans are 1 year older they can still produce and Starlin Castro is going to be significantly better then Stephen Drew!! Chase Headly should be the player of old and drop those errors from a year ago. The only concern I have is the starting rotation, and I also don’t believe that CC Sabathia is competing for the 5th spot in the rotation regardless if he finishes spring training bad or good I think that spot is his considering that he’s never pitched out of the bullpen in his career and he’s making about $25 million . If the rotation can stay healthy expect them to compete and pitch 200 innings this year.

Breaking down the American Baseball League Central.

Breaking down the AL Central, By; John Torres

-the AL central will be a better division then what people think this division is stacked and I think this might be the best division in baseball.

Tigers- Detroit went out and spent a substantial amount of funds and allocated that money into the right players. First and foremost they signed a big free agent hitter in Justin Upton, Upton comes into a situation where he doesn't have to be the main guy because he's surrounded by great hitters like Cabrera, Martinez, J.D Martinez and others so the offense will be good in my opinion the clear weakness for this team is the bullpen and it has been for the past several years. W/ the additions of Justin Wilson and K-Rod and a healthy Rondon that throws gas this bullpen has more dept now but they need to close out games more times then not in order to compete.

Twins- The twins have a good crop of young talent they were a few more wins away to claim the second AL WC I just think Miguel Sano will be even better w/ a year of service time under his belt. They have a pretty good offense they just need to gell together from start to finish. They needed a catcher and completed their wish list w/ the acquisition of John Ryan Murphy even though I think the twins will be good I don't think it will be enough to compete w/ everyone in their division!

Indians- The Cleveland Indians hands down have the best rotation in the division, the last few years they just weren't able to score enough runs I think that changes this year w/ Napoli on board. I believe they will compete for a WC slot this summer they're a dangerous team.

Royals-Finally this leaves me w/ the Kansas City Royals the 2015 WS Champions. Their clear strength on this team is clearly the bullpen these guys can come in w/ any situation on the line and throw 100 w/ Herrera , Davis and more. There clear weakness that they need to improve upon Is their starting rotation ever since James shields left this rotation has been giving you subpar number. Another strength that people under look is their offense even though they don't collectively hit a lot of home runs they still hit in the clutch a lot as a team and I expect this team to win the AL Central in 2016.

Get ready for baseball season 2016.

Get ready for baseball season 2016. After a long winter the players have reported to their team and are getting ready to put on the greatest show known to human kind. Of course, following the fantastic sport of Football. We can only hope that the players stay healthy and free from any side distractions. As we know in the past many have being caught in the act of foul play, but after a brief suspension they are back helping their team win. Many are getting ready to win lots of games and many will be disappointed  from day one. Lots of players are also down to the last year of service. Many others find themselves under achieving and will soon be release or fire. Lets hope they all keep their jobs. We all know the teams favorite to win. The ones with the biggest superstars. The ones with the big guns and with pressure and  finally the New York Yankees. A team much deserve to making it back to the glory years. I love New York and love baseball. But let the best team win.

Love what you eat, and be happy.

As the world population becomes aware of the new trends in the food intake, we tend to forget how important it is to keep a good nutrition. I read many articles and hear many people express their though on what makes a good nutritional meal plan. Of course, I agree with many as long they are not trying to substitute meal nutrition with dietary meal which do not include all necessary supplements with need  in order to maintain a healthy life. With that in mind always consult with a licensed professional for better guidance and remember love what you eat and exercise 30 minutes per day and live a more productive life.
