2008 World series champions, Detroit Tigers

88-74 last year and they just picked up Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera.

Kenny Rogers, Justin Verlander, Jeremy Bonderman, Nate Robertson and now the D train as a starting rotation. Todd Jones and Joel Zumaya in the bullpen. Gary Sheffield, Magglio Ordonez, Pudge, Placido Polanco, Carlos Guillen, Renteria and Granderson playing every day.

Steinbrenner would kill for a team like this. Just the starting pitching will win them 70 games without any run support.

They look strong just hope their pitching doesnt give away the world series like they did with the errors 2 years ago. It will come down between them and the Red Sox depending on where Santana goes.

Seen it on ESPN yesterday. If everyone stays healthy, they have a good chance.

The Dodgers have spent a ton to win next year as well. $36,000,000 for Andruw Jones over 2 years!

If only Hicks would spend some money.

No doubt. Detroit is looking very very strong now.

I just hope Johan doesn't end up in Boston or New York.

1/3 of what the Yankees spent and 1/2 of the Red Sox. The Padres and Blue Jays spent more than him last season. I don't expect him to spend money like the Chicago or New York teams but he should be close to the Astros, Braves and Cardinals.

He keeps raising ticket prices but won't spend the money to put out a team that a major market deserves. We should have $30,000,000 worth of free agents this season but instead it's an even lower payroll. Spend the money or sell the team.

does he not get that if he spends more money, he might actually start selling tickets, and he would make that money back and then some?
