1. Toronto Blue Jays -- I really feel they took care of their needs this offseason with the trade with the Miami Marlins. They acquired pitching, to add to their below-average rotation, in Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson. Also, in the trade, the acquired Jose Reyes and John Buck, which adds pop to their lineup which already had Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista. Well done, Alex Anthopoulos.
2. Atlanta Braves -- They did a good job stabilizing their outfield, with both BJ and Justin Upton. They had to give up Martin Prado, but also got Chris Johnson, who had 11 home runs only two years ago. They have plenty of depth everywhere and might be able to catch the Nationals.
3. Los Angeles Angels -- Look, Josh Hamilton can't HURT this team. Their big pieces just got bigger. Trout and Hamilton in the same outfield? Pretty nice. They also picked up a cheap Ryan Madson, who could really bolster this bullpen.
4. Los Angeles Dodgers -- They got the best pitcher on the market, Zack Greinke. Enough said.
5. Washington Nationals -- I really like their three big moves this offseason. Dan Haren, Denard Span, and Rafael Soriano all made a huge splash in the D.C. area. They filled big needs and will be a big contender in the NL.
6. Philadelphia Phillies -- I really hate being biased, but the Phils defiantly made cost-effective moves that could help their team. Delmon Young, Michael Young, Ben Revere, John Lannan, and Mike Adams all fill a need each with their own risks, but, based on their numbers, they could make a really good contribution. If these guys perform, and their core players stay healthy, the Phillies could have one more shot. Moneyball 2?
7. Boston Red Sox -- This offseason they turned themselves around by adding Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes, Stephen Drew, and Ryan Dempster. These additons will help, but Dempster was very over-paid. I think they will be improved, but it will be hard to beat out the Orioles and Yankees atop the AL East.
8. Detriot Tigers -- They added Torii Hunter to this awesome offense that made the World Seires last year. They are built to win. And they will.
9. Clevland Indians -- They could be ranked higher because they added Swisher, Bourn, Bauer, and Stubbs, but I believe their pitching needs more improvements. Don't get me wrong, the Indians will have a good year this year, just they may not reach the highest potential.
10. Seattle Mariners -- Adding Michael Morse, Raul Ibanez, Kendrys Morales, and Felix Hernandez could make the Mariners a surprise team in the AL West. The Athletics and Rangers will be very tough to catch, but the Mariners have youth to be one of the up and coming teams for years to come.
