Or, why I think the Rangers should contend in the A.L. West this season.
Looking around for some info on our divisional opponents, I stumbled upon this predicted Opening Day lineup:
Gary Matthews Jr. CF
Orlando Cabrera SS
Garret Anderson LF
Vladimir Guerrero RF
Shea Hillenbrand DH
Howie Kendrick 2B
Casey Kotchman 1B
Mike Napoli C
Chone Figgins 3B
Yeah, I know, the Ranger lineup isn't particularly scary, either.
But I don't see this Angel team -- and particularly, this Angel lineup -- as being that big of a threat.
I'd set the over/under on wins by the A.L. West winner at 89.5.
