With the 2012 MLB season in the books, it is time to begin to look to 2013. All 30 teams will start off on even footing as they try to win baseball's ultimate prize, the World Series title.
The San Francisco Giants will look to defend their title in 2013, but it will not be easy. Their division will be very competitive next season, as will the rest of the National League.
Following their disappointing performance in the 2012 World Series, the Detroit Tigers will look to take the next step and win the title during the upcoming season.
Teams will add a number of new players through free-agent signings and trades, and these moves will help shape the 2013 season.
Here are my early picks for the 2013 World Series along with the lineup and starting rotation for each team.
