Meh, I'd call the yanks the favorites even if Boston is the defending champ. I also think Baltimore finishes in the cellar.

I think Boston's pitching staff, other than Schilling, is ordinary and potentially bad. The Yankees will win that division by @ least 10 games.

1) Just pick whoever won last year to win again.
2) If the Yankees didn't win last year, pick them for the WC.
3) Next, pick the teams in the order of who has the most big-name players.

How's this quote:
Orioles
Can't have too much of a good thing: With Rafael Palmeiro already on hand, the Orioles will have the first set of 500-homer teammates in baseball history once the expected trade of Sammy Sosa from the Cubs is completed.The fact that both are shadows of their former selves seems totally lost on this guy. Maybe he's counting on them riding on Sidney Ponson's back.

I'm not overly impressed with the Yankees' starting rotation. RJ is very good, but his age has to catch up to him sometime. Mussina and Brown had mediocre ERAs last year. Pavano has had one good season and is not only switching leagues, but going to a high-pressure national stage in the Bronx. Jared Wright hasn't impressed me much either. I really don't think this rotation is top 2 or 3 in the MLB. I say they finish second to the BoSox and win the wildcard.

One big advantage the Yankees have is in the bullpen. They're loaded and Boston really has Foulke, Timlin and a lot of question marks.
