Indians - The Indians have an overall balance that will be very difficult for any American League team to beat. The rotation is essentially the same as it is now, and the lineup has some needed pop in the middle to make it very dangerous. The bullpen seems to be the biggest weakness because there is no one dominating arm, but it is very deep and someone would step it up. 2. White Sox ñ The Sox have some nice power in the top of the order, but after Crede, the roster is filled with borderline MLB players. The same goes with the rotation. The top-3 are not bad, but Gio Gonzalez isnít even in the majors yet. The White Sox have a very strong chance to win the wild card with their batting order, but we will see how they compare to the Yankees and the AL West team later this week. 3. Twins ñ This team looks very similar to the real Twins team. The lineup is nice, but not scary. The rotation has potential, but definitely is not one to dominate. Unfortunately, the Twins have done a poor job developing major league players, so the roster actually has 4 catchers on it. 4. Tigers ñ After Granderson, the lineup goes downhill. All the other players are not even regulars in real MLB, so this hurts the Tigersí chances in HMLB. Smoltz would be better suited for the rotation, but he wants to close, giving the Tigers one of the best bullpens in baseball. 5. Royals ñ This Royals team is not too bad? Right? At least there is more power and better hitting, although the rotation still is pretty awful. Tom Gordon originally was drafted by the RoyalsÖin 1986. Tomorrow: AL West
