Will Your MLB Team Be a Winner? The Winners of Each Division

Mike BuzzeoContributor IMarch 14, 2009

American League East:
1) Yankees: Despite A-Rod being injured the Yankees are too strong not to win the  division this year.  With the addition of Teix, the Yankees added another 30 home runs and 100 RBIs at least.  CC and Barnett will also help add 25 wins to the starting staff.  The only thing the Yanks have to worry about is how Posada and Mariano's shoulder's getting better.

American League Central:
Twins: With Liriano looking strong the Twins will have a good shot at winning this division.  Liriano threw perfect innings in his first Spring Training start.  Denard Span could have a break out year.  The Twins will win this division over the White Sox but will be down to the wire like it was last year.

American League West:
L.A. Angels: With a young and strong pitching staff L.A. is going to have a dynamiteforce on the mound.  Just when I thought that their line up couldn't get any stronger, the Angels sign veteran outfielder Bobby Abreu. 

Although Abreu doesn't have quite as much power as he used to, Abreu is still good for a .300 average.  The Angels shouldn't get any challenges for the division this year.

National League East:
Phillies: The defending champs will keep their play-off streak alive by winning the division.  Their line up is still too strong with Howard, Utley, and Rollins leading they way.  While Cole Hamels leads a strong pitching staff.  The Phillies shouldn't get any challenge for the division, so sorry baseball fans we don't get to see the Mets choke again.

National League Central:
Chicago: The Cubs will have another amazing year.  Lou Pinella is one of the best managers in all of baseball.  The Cubs brought back Dempster and hard throwing Rich Harden to lead the starters, and in the bullpen the Cubs have young gun Jeff Samardijza.

The Cubs lineup is powerful being led by Soriano and Derrek Lee. The Cubs will the division in a landslide.

National League West:
Arizona Diamondbacks: The D-Backs always are among the best in this division and will finish tops this year.  Although their line up is not that strong, their pitching staff helps make it up. 

With Cy Young hopeful Brandon Webb and Dan Haren leading the way, it will be hard to score runs against this powerful team.
