Seems like none of the pundits can get a handle on the AL West, except that ANaheim will win.  
 
NObody can get a handle on Oakland, Texas and Seattle. I've seen some 'experts' saying the A's will be good again and some saying they will easily finish in last. Same with Texas and Seattle.  
 
NObody knows what to expect out of these three teams.  
 
I personally doubt that Seattle can finish .500 after losing 99 games last year. Sexton blows, and I don't think Beltre can make up for what was a horrible team least year.

Anaheim is the class of that division. Despite losing Percival, the Angels still have the best rotation and bullpen without a doubt.

The only thing that concerns me about the Angels is their starting pitching. Middle Relieving is really solid, and I think Frankie will grow comfortable w/ the Closing Role, but they don't have any dominating starter...Hard to believe Washburn is their only Southpaw on the ENTIRE pitching staff (same as last year, I believe).

Have you seen any odds on the Angels winning the west?....I'd jump on anything even money or better.

I just answered my own question...I must have been dreaming with that even money garbage....they're at 2/7 to win the west.

I like Halos to win it, however Seattle has much more scoring potential .. A's and Texas are sleeping right now .. pitching wise ..  
 
nonetheless my pick early would be Seattle .. Ichiro get's on base, Adrian Beltre hits him home ..
