I like Marcum more than I like Morrow. If one of these guys makes it, it will probably be him. I think Morrow has been given more of an opportunity because of his high draft position than anything else. If I were them I'd start unloading guys now. I.E. Wells and Hill
The Jays are a 500 team in the toughest division in baseball. That isn't bad. The Red Sox have one of the best records in baseball, they will re-tool over the break as much as they can and you really think the Yankees have a chance of really dropping off? The Rays could because they don't have the resources to keep anyone.
The Rays are still very young. With Pena, Longoria, Garza & Price I can see them being able to throw in guys who could be stop gap measures for later on (2b and C).
Boston is missing a lot of guys, They've had a lot of injuries but I'm looking at the roster and I'm just not sold on it. They would need a lot of things to go right to be a continder next year.
1. They've got too many top tier catchers. Funny to say that, but they need to let Tek go, keep Martinez and deal Salty. (Assuming that his throwing problem is under control)
2. They have to hope Pedrioa comes back from foot surgury and plays to the same level he has been. A 2B with bad feet doesn't sound good (but the O's 2b has a bad hip/back so we may be in the same position)
3. Their outfield is oooollllldddddd.
