AL Central Preview

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:

Rich: Turning to how it will all shake out, I feel safe in saying that Cleveland and Detroit will finish 1-2 or 2-1 (okay, okay, 1-2) and that Chicago, while overrated, will finish third, Minnesota fourth, and Kansas City fifth.

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.
