Degari- the Baltimore Orioles
The Orioles are a young team, with a few veterans interlaced throughout their lineup. Under their first year manager Buck Showalter, the O's have been playing very good baseball, and with the Rays most likely out of the conversation, the AL east could come down to a three team race between the Yankees, Red Sox and Orioles.
Planbskater- the New York Mets
Poor planb is the lowly mets; a team known to always get close, but never win the big one (at least in recent years). The mets have had a great past though, as the '69 mets are still the standard for cinderella out of nowhere world champions, but this year at least, it looks like barring a '69 mets-esque miracle, these mets are going to battle with the Nationals for last place in the NL East.
forty two- the Los Angeles Dodgers
For some reason, the dodgers fly under the radar for most baseball fans. It's a reason I can't determine, because the Dodgers are perennial playoff contenders and have a solid lineup and rotation. The Dodgers were once known as the "Brooklyn Dodgers" back in the day, because, well, they played in Brooklyn, and they played well, producing hall of famers such as Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese, not to mention a world series championship. However, the Dodgers eventually made the move out to the bright lights of LA
in 2007 in 1958 and it's been history ever since.
Dhampy- The Minnesota Twins
The Twins have their own distinctive, almost eastern style of baseball that they play outdoors in the Minnesota elements at Target Field. The Twins surprisingly have a huge
post count payroll, despite being a mid-market team. The Twinkies have won three world series titles, including the dramatic 1991 7 game series over the Braves () thanks to the heroics of Minnesota legend Kirby Puckett. As of late, the twins are perennial playoff... apperancers; they have yet to win a playoff game in their last three.
