I'd agree with that, although I don't believe any group has reason to put down another.

it is early but Boston maye be much improved. Dempster is their 5th starter, they have a very solid bullpen and they always find offense. If Ortiz comes back healthy they will be a force but without him they will lack a major LH threat. But they have added a lot of speed which is something they rarely have.
Blue Jays on paper look great as well.

Napoli, Victorino, Ortiz, Buchholz and Lackey all have health concerns.
Middlebrooks will probably regress from a good rookie season.
Lester has been declining for a few years.
That bullpen could be shaky.

I think they have enough to maybe finish in 3rd place, but not to contend for the division title.

Baltimore could be in there again, Cliff Davis is on fire, 3 HRs and 11 RBIs already.

Problem with Baltimore is that they were something like 29-9 in one-run games last season. You can't count on that luck.

That said, while their rotation is questionable, they do have some studs waiting.
