The A.L. Central will be a little more competitive than last year, but the White Sox should clearly be the favorite to win the division. After winning the World Series, GM Ken Williams has been busy this offseason. He acquired Jim Thome and Javier Vazquez and re-signed Paul Konerko, making the Chi-Sox even better than last year. It's a possibility that they could go back-to-back, as the Yankees have shown in the last five years that paying top dollars for players doesn't guarantee a ring. Other than K.C., the rest of the teams should be competitive as well. The Indians may have lost Coco Crisp, but they gained Jason Michaels, who's another up-an-coming player to fill his role. The Twins will do well as long as Johan Santana stays healthy and the Tigers improved their pitching with the acquisition of Kenny Rogers, who should have a great year at Comerica Park.

It's got to be the White Sox with the pitching staff they have. The division is tough with the 2-4 spots being a battle between the Twins, Indians and Tigers. I'll be pulling hard for the Tigers, but it will be tough to get out of the four hole. KC isn't worth including in the discussion at this point, but I'm sure they will take the season series from the Tigers like they always do.

1. White Sox
2. Twins
3. Indians
4. Tigers
5. Royals

With the exception of the Royals, this will be a very competitive division. The Indians have the edge over the Tigers because they have a stronger pitching rotation, but Detroit should make it over .500 for the first time in years.

Even in spring training, I thought the Tigers were an improved team, but frankly, I was laughing when Olde English D's predicted a first place finish early on in the season for his beloved hometown team. Who's laughing now???? Good call, D!!! I didn't think the Indians would be so disappointing either.
