    Mariners just need to stay healthy and they can compete for the AL west title.

    Anybody follow the Rangers? How they looking this year? Astros might be looking to improve, but they always smash the Mariners dicks. So, meh.

    With all these #1 picks it's only a matter of time before the Astros are REALLY good (though they have to sign them!)

    I hope you are right Vetali. If we can have the good pitching like last year I can see us winning the division and if it all works out a first World Series. I haven't paid to much attention in the off season. i will come back with my predictions.

    If Kuma wasn't hurt last year we coulda easily of made the playoffs. Jack Z has made improvements to the lineup, but still lacks depth both offensively and defensively. Stay healthy and keep the 1 2 punch of Felix and Kuma, get to the playoffs.

    Also a lot of games were saved by Rodney. He needs to continue to produce.

    Things aren't looking so good for the Rangers I guess. Yu Darvish sprained his UCL and is making a decision on Tommy John surgery.

    This is it, the year I give up on the twins and our front office/owner for the first time ever.

    Go Seattle! (Love the uniforms, love Felix, love old school a rod)

    Go WHITE SOX! lol

    In all seriousness, this is going to be an exciting year - lots of intriguing teams that could make runs.

    Yu Darvish potential Tommy John Surgery, well Texas, IT BEGINS, didn't take long for them to try and top last year's injury shitstorm.

    I'm a big fan of Yu Darvish, Masahiro Tanaka, and Hiroki Kuroda (Among others) I don't know why, I just really like the Japanese approach to the game.

    Its the Nats year. Best staff in majors by far and Harper will finally get it going this year.

    Let's go BoSox!

    Hopefully the age of our roster won't hurt us.

    As do I. As much as I dislike the Yankees, i did like Hideki Matsui. Mets have had their share of Japanese players over the years, I remember being fond of Kaz Matsui, but he wasn't as good as he was in Japan. Added note, Kaz is the only player in major league history to hit a home run in his first plate appearance in his each of his first 3 seasons.

    I had hoped that Kazuhisa Ishii would have panned out better. And of course, the legendary tornado, Mr. Hideo Nomo.

    I'd like to see Wheeler develop this season, and I hope they don't run Harvey into the ground. If so, next season could be a nice 1-3 top of the pitching staff.

    Seriously? You couldn't write that if you tried.

    I'm more pissed that Girardi's already named Drew as his starting 2b, that guy stunk last year & is stinking so far this spring.

    I'm hoping Chris Sale isn't out for too long, but I am really stoked to see how our new lineup does this year, having Avisail Garcia back for a full season, along with the other new guys that were brought in. High hopes on the south side this year!
