Benjamin's Annual Baseball Preview: Part 1

DANDY! It is time for my 1st Annual Baseball Preview. Enjoy. Or don't, my feelings won't be hurt.

This is Part 1 of 8 of my preview. Over the next couple of days (whenever I actually get around to writing it) I will be posting Team-by-Team previews from each division and a Conclusion post.

Keep in mind this all can and will change when injuries, natural progressions toward greatness and oblivion of various players, and free-agent pick ups and trades take effect. Plus if Blue Jays ever give legit playing time to our patron saint, Salvatore, they become immediate favorites to win it all.

1. Boston Red Sox
2. New York Yankees
