Both my Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have high expectations heading into this season. The O’s had their first winning season since 1997, and the Nats had the best record in Baseball. With all the injuries the Yankees have, the AL East is wide open, and the Orioles have the talent to win it, though the Toronto Blue Jays, having become the Miami Marlins North with that team’s salary dump and the Jays’ Acquistion of NL Cy Young Awarde Winner R.A. Dickey could also make things interesting. And the Nats have the NL’s best pitching, with Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez, though the Braves and Phillies are always competitive. We shall see starting next week…..
