The fact that you have the Texas Rangers in your top ten and Reds in your top 15 proves that there is no credibility at all to those rankings. I can tell you put a lot of time into them and I give you credit for that, but when the season is over, you wont even be close.

By the way, Kenny Lofton is a non-factor. He has diminished skills.

And how can you say all the Indians have in starting pitching is Colon and Sabathia? Did you even do research, or did you pull that out of the air? If you would have looked up our projected rotation you would have found that the Indians have one of the best young rotations in baseball. Have you heard of Danys Baez or Ryan Drese? And Finley may be a washed up punk, but when healthy he is good for 12-15 wins.

There is credibility to my rankings until I am proven wrong at the end of the season, then even great sportscasters like Peter Gammons and Rob Neyer are way off base in their predictions. A senior writer for Baseball Weekly predicted Phildelphia to win the NL East in 2001. He was wrong , but he still gets paid $100,000 per year and he's still seen as a credible reporter or writer. lol

to bash someones ratings cause you dont agree with them is kinda lame to me...the reason these are "preseason" rankings is cause the season hasnt happened yet and noone knows what will happen

i bet you didnt predict seattle to run away with the division last season did you? or minnesota to be as strong as they were? i bet you would have criticized anyone who put either of those teams in the top 15 or 20 last season...but look what happened.

why dont you post your rankings so we can see how all-mighty you are.

You just proved why having preseason rankings is stupid. And I wouldnt have bashed anyone about Seattle, but it is ludicrous to think that Texas will be in the upper third of baseball with their pitching.

Just keep rooting for the lame Chargers

My rankings aren't worth arguing about lol It's just my point of view. Just have fun with it and debate about it. I have always tried to say something nice about somebody's posts or works. If I have anything I consider negative or just not good manners I try to steer away from it, but I have been guilty of calling people stupid. We're just human. Anyhow have fun.

Hey, I am NOT a jerk. BUt if I think someones rankings are dead wrong, Im gonna tell him. Its nothing personal to anyone. You calling me a jerk IS personal however, and maybe you should just run back to your boyfriend Patrick if you cant take a little argument about sports.
