These are rankings going into 2020, and for 2020.
With Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres, and Giancarlo Stanton, this team could be dangerous.
Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies, and then add Freddie Freeman. Look for all three to breakout.
The scandal will hit hard, but Jose Altuve was good before the cheating too.
Even though they play in a weak division, their pitching is unmatched in the AL Central.
They have so much talent, but a change in manager is never easy. Cody Bellinger will have a big year.
The defending champs have Max Scherzer, Victors Robles, and Adam Eaton. What more do you need?
Playing in the AL isn’t easy. A 97 win season isn’t easy either, and then look at the A’s budget.
8. White Sox
You’d think bias, but Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, and Lucas Giolito. And then add in the prospects.
Another weak division, but Jack Flaherty is a real-life god. Oh yeah, the batting is great too.
Rays ball, the new way to win it all. Just, well, look at the last article.
11. Red Sox
You can’t spell Red Sox without money, so look for a big offseason from Boston plus Mookie Betts.
They always get hot at the end, and they were hot without Christian Yelich. What about with him?
Most of the players are falling stars, so 2020 will be one last decent year for the Tribe.
They got hot at the end, so it gets you thinking. Add some free agents, and this team could contend.
Oh, they places they’ll go when they trade Harper. Worked for the Nationals, just a different method.
They’re on the decline, all of the previous stars are either gone, washed up, or irrelevant.
If Ketel Marte steps it up, and the Diamondbacks get some pitching, we are looking at a sleeper.
It’s a hard knock life for teams in the AL. But don’t take a win for granted, they are a threat.
Joey Votto is a legend, a hall of famer, and he is also on the decline. The team will fall with him.
It’s never easy replacing a legend, but the Giants can do it. Madison Bumgarner will step it up.
Mike Trout is in the prime of his career, but can the Angels actually support him?
The Manny Machado hiring was questionable. But will Fernando Tatis be enough to support him?
Daniel Voglebach can hit for power, and Yusei Kikuchi could be good. They overachieved last year.
This team has the star power, it just needs to start to translate into wins.
Josh Bell can hit for power and a little average, but he cannot carry. There is no pitching here to see.
26. Blue Jays
It’s tough in the AL East, but Vladdy Jr. definitely helps. There is no SP with a winning record.
They’re in full rebuild mode. Adalberto Mondesi is freakish athletically, and will be a future star.
The only good that I can think of his Jonathan Villar. That says something about the team.
Garret Cooper is rising, but aside from that, there is nothing to see and no fans to see it.
They have 2 players over a .250 AVG, and no SP with a winning record. They are just awful.
