    Eh, I don't think the AL East is "bar none" the hardest division to win. For the Yanks and Boston, who can simply out spend the other teams, winning the division is actually pretty easy. With the rare exception (TB), the AL East is pretty much a two team race decided before the season even starts. Competition does not really exist in the division--it's a two team race.

    A division like the NL West typically has more competition between it's teams.

    The problem I see in this thread with the heated discussion is that people are trying to pass off their opinions as facts without acknowledging they are simply expressing opinions.

    I said saying the Twins are "ok" is a joke. I listed why, then I simply told the Red Sox fans (him especially) to stop acting like the Red Sox are far superior to everyone when the season hasn't even started yet.

    Then he went on by saying if Morneau is average than so is Youk.

    I know, the ################# was to show that it was a different topic. I was ONCE AGAIN asking both sides to take a chill pill.

    If he's average, Youkilis is average.

    And as for Nathan, he's one of the few closers who when healthy is close to Rivera. Getting him back is HUGE for the Twins.

Note to ALL posters in this thread please do not trash ANY team.

    Again Oooooohhhh you have Joe Nathan back and you have Morneau back oh im really scared of the Twins now seeing as your best player is behind the plate i think every team in the American League is pretty safe against you since Nathan is umm your number 3 starter .... oh wait thats not right he's your number 2 .... no thats not it *SNAP* he's your closer thats right :doh: how could i forget that ?

    You see I could say that Boston will Jonathan Papelbon back this year to his early form and that wouldn't scare anyone. But say we have Jon Lester , Clay Buchholz & Josh Beckett back not to mention that line up and the Twins along with everyother American League Team is shaking in their boots

    And as great as Mauer is he can't throw out two runners at the same time ... So good luck with Crawford and Ellsbury this season

    And if im not mistaken ... which I know im not because I wrote it I have the Twins playing Boston in the ALCS ... an ALCS that goes six games

    South see everyone calls me a hater but I call it fair and say it will not be easy for the Twins and they still cry

    Twins won 94 games last year and that's with Morneau sitting the last 3 months of the season.

    So as far as I can tell the Twins should be better than last year.

    Just like the Red Sox should be better than their 3rd place finish last year.

    You guys are acting as if you are the defending World Series Champions. Evaluating everyone elses team acting as if they aren't the Red Sox, then they aren't good enough.

    The Red Sox haven't won anything yet, nor will it be any easier for them to make the WS than any other team.

    Let's not get ahead of yourself buddy. The Red Sox have yet to even play a game.

    When was the Twins last World Series Championship ? like 1991 and you've won Three World Championships in your teams history (1924,1987,1991)

    When was Boston's last World Championship hmmmm .... oh yeah 2007 and how many World Series Championships are in our teams history ? hmmm ... oh yeah SEVEN (1903,1912,1915,1916,1918,2004,2007)

    When did the Twins last make it to the ALCS ... 1991
    When did the Red Sox last make it to the ALCS ... 2008

    So don't talk to me about not winning anything yet your team has gone Twenty Years since they made it to the ALCS ... let alone the World Series.

    My team has barely gone four for both

    The Twins suck in October you have all this talent and you always crap out in October so do all your gum bumping now cause you wont make it to October and if you do it wont be to the ALCS ....

    There now im hating
