With the baseball season quickly approaching, below is a list of my 2006 American League predictions. While some familiar names, like the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and Oakland Athletics will likely remain on top. There will be some surprises. Notably, the Cleveland Indians should win the AL Central

AL East

AL Central

  • Cleveland Indians – This team was on fire the second half of last year. With a year more experience, a very strong under the radar starting staff and some scary young hitters, this will be a very good team.
  • Chicago White Sox – The World Series Champs have a deep staff and will once again be there come playoff time. Look for them to win the wildcard.
  • Minnesota Twins - Johan Santana will keep this team above .500 all by himself, but don’t get your playoff hopes too high Twins fans, to many good teams ahead of you.
  • Detroit Tigers – They’re not a terrible team, but they're just not that good either.
  • Kansas City Royals – Now this is a terrible team. Start sending your Mike Sweeney trade offers now.
