FINAL THOUGHTS AND RANKINGS
If we tally up all of the position scores, we end up with the following rankings (lowest number is best):
- Blue Jays 38
- Red Sox 48
- Rays 53
- Yankees 53
- Orioles 64
If the season were to open today, that’s what I’d put up as my expected standings at the end of the season. I put the Rays ahead of the Yankees only because I trust their pitching more than the Yankess pitching.
Things are already looking good for the Jays if we base things on what I listed in this article. Hopefully they address the #4 and #5 spots in the rotation and strengthen their pen. If that happens, this team may be unstoppable in 2016.
