AL East: No Change in Standings

Matt KellyCorrespondent IFebruary 1, 2008

This season looks like it will be the same in the AL East with the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees fighting for supremacy. 

The Toronto Blue Jays will finish third and the newly-named Tampa Bay Rays will be fourth, which leaves the Baltimore Orioles at the bottom.

Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz will once again be fighting for the most home runs and Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez for RBIs.

Derek Jeter and Kevin Youkilis will be battling for the East batting-average title, while the stolen-base crown will probably go to Carl Crawford from TB.

Overall, I believe it will be the Red Sox coming out on top. This comes from a Yankee fan, just because the Yanks have a new manager.
