Baseball Analysts has a nice roundtable preview of the AL Central this year. I normally wouldn't put this in its own diary, but they've got a pretty nice group participating in this one. In addition to Baseball Analyst contributors Rich Ledered and Patrick Sullivan, they've got Rob Neyer and Joe Posnanski contributing their thoughts. Worth a read.
A few of them are very high on Detroit's offense, actually making a position by position comparison to the '99 Tribe which broke the 1000 run barrier.
They end up kind of split:
Joe: I think it's Detroit, Cleveland, Kansas City (I have to people), Chicago, Minnesota. I only feel any confidence at all about Detroit and Cleveland duking it out.
Rob: Indians, Tigers, Royals, Twins, White Sox. But there's not much separating the top two from one another, or the bottom three from one another.
Sully: Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, Minnesota, Chicago. Thanks a lot, guys. That was a lot of fun.
