If we tally up all of the position scores, we end up with the following rankings (lowest number is best):

  1. Blue Jays 38
  2. Red Sox 48
  3. Rays 53
  4. Yankees 53
  5. 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.
