The Tampa Bay Rays look to have another championship season. I even think a World Series berth is possible this season. But it is gonna be tough.
The Texas Rangers actually had the best under-performing team I have ever seen last year. Don't expect it to happen this year, though I am not sure the starting pitching is actually up to the task.
The Kansas City Royals just might be the dark horse of the AL this year.
The Little Rock Heads made a flurry of this off season but I am not sure it was helpful. I am not sold at all on the pitching staff.
