    Re: What hyped team can you see missing the playoffs completely?

    I'd have to say the Braves won't gel in the team chemistry area at least not right away and will miss the 2013 playoffs but largely due to injuries being the tell-tale reason Atlanta misses postseason.

    The Yankees as others here have said are old and aren't the championship caliber club the were or ever will be again with their current roster and the on the outs relationship with AROD gets old fast as the New York media asks the daily question of the Yankee players- What have you heard today about Alex? GMCashman starts the Yankees retooling.

    Toronto and Angels

    Tampa, New York, Texas, Oakland will make the playoffs out of those two divisions

    Nationals and/or Tigers.

    Tigers. Way overhyped due to the star power. They were an 88 win team last year despite being in a weak AL Central. They only thing that makes it difficult for them not to make the playoffs is the same weak division. Perhaps Indians and White Sox can take a bigger leap this year.

    The Tigers are definitely there for the taking. I'm keeping an eye on the Royals in ST. The division is so soft if that team could catch lightning in a bottle (particularly in terms of pitching) then it might surprise people.
