    Redszone Poll - Who wins the AL Central?

    Time for a little non-Reds baseball discussion.

    Who wins the AL Central?

    -Will the Northsiders pull off a repeat of '05?
    -Will the young Indians put it all together?
    -Is this finally the year the Tigers get over the hump?
    -Will the Twins step forward or step back?
    -Does Kansas City know that they are allowed to put a major league franchise on the field for 162 games, and it's ok to leave the AAA squad in Omaha?

    It's all about the pitching and the Twinkies have it.
    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

    Indians. It seems me and Cyclone are making the same pick in each poll.

    I love the Indians to win the AL Central this year. They made a late push last year; this year I see them getting off to a better start and winning the division. The offense will be very good, and the pitching should be good enough to lead them to the playoffs.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Redszone Poll - Who wins the AL Central?

    Both the Indians and White Sox are due for a regression pitching wise. The Indians simply won't be able to replace what Millwood did for them last year. The White Sox bullpen is looking shaky with Jenks thrownig crap and Hermanson's back still a mess. A healthy Jim Thome means the world to them.

    The Twins meanwhile have a ton of potential, but are probably 3rd if you ran a sim 1000 times. That said, I think Morneau breaks out, Mauer is an all-star, Kubel challenges for RoY. They've got the pitching in spades and the offense, while still not great, will be league average.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I voted the White Sox. I'm not buying the Indians mirage - I think they made themselves weaker

    Jason Michaels doesn't = Coco Crisp, and Paul Byrd doesn't = Kevin Milwood. Plus I think Cliff Lee and CC Sabathia are a tad overrated and this may be the year that is exposed. Sizemore and Peralta may be the real deal, but both played out of their shoes last year and I would expect a slight sophomore slump.
