1. Arsenal!
Rumour has it one of those rich Arabs is about to buy our club..
If this happens we will have silly money, turn into the Yankees and buy quality players..
If this happens I will be forced to forgive my college sweetheart for cheating on me with a rich Arab ha ha..
It only happened 11 years ago, (but any grudge that lasts more than 5 years.. Well. After 5 years it doesn't really matter, ha ha.. Cause that's one helluva grudge!)..

2. Arsenal again!
With bale going to Madrid in the summer..
We will get back to the coveted 4th spot..
And make the big bucks..

3. Patriots!
If the rumors are true.. And we get reed..
We get a big piece of the puzzle..
And just as importantly steal a piece from the over paid flacco ravens!

4. Yoooooouuuuuuk!!
He and Damon in pinstripes hurts the eyes..
But the betrayal isn't as bad as Damon's.. So I think I can get over it..
Plus since the Red Sox demise I'm desperately searching for something to keep me excited this long and lonely season..

5. Houston rockets..
Is there a more daaaaaaangerous dark horse?
No no there isn't..
Team leads the league in scoring, 3 pointers and over all sex appeal!


1. Toronto Blue Jays - This is my preseason pick to actually win the AL East. Just look at the list of names they added this year:

Melky Cabrera
Jose Reyes
R.A. Dickey

They finished last year at 73-89 and I could see them improving significantly this year!

2. Brooklyn Nets - I see this team improving dramaticaly after this season. We all know that Dwight Howard wants to/and will end up here. Look at what they have done since they got D-Will. They went from 22-44 to 34-26. Now let's see what their record improves to with Dwight Howard. I can see them contending with the Heat next year.

3. Matt Kemp - Matt Kemp had an off season last year due to his injuries. Let's look at his stats from the previous year. In 2011, he batted .324, with 39 HR, 126 RBIs, and 40 SBs. He did that with almost no protection behind him. Now, if he stays healthy he has Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzales, Carl Crawford, and a healthy Andre Ehtier hitting with him. They won't just be able to walk him.

I am only going to stick with these 3 seeing how most of your arguments are irrelevent. I will not go in to the sex appeal of any of the people/teams I mentioned above.

Good luck!


ok.. I can live with KEMP..

Blue jays and nets I do have issues..

Maybe the Nets can slightly improve with Howard..
But he has had a rubbish season so far.. What makes you think Howard is just in a funk?
Just curious..
Cause it sounds like all you got is just flip flops..
Either way, I think the Rockets are that sexy dark horse, you just have to go all in..
The Rockets offense is a thing of beauty..
You should go to find-a-dark-horse.com.. There you will see a picture of a big creepy beard..

The blue jays beating the yankees for the al east..
Wow, I wish I had that much confidence!
I would walk up to the girl I have a crush on, and ask her flat out if she wanted to come back to my place, so I can break off a piece of that cake..
Dickeys ERA will go up, his wins will go down..
He was a great story last year..
But the yankees will crush him..
He's not even a real knuckleballer..
He's like half knuckleballer, half weird pitcher..

I might do more..
Alex smith..
The longhorns QB..
Michael Vick is due..
Alabama RB.. That guy is a beast!
Mancuso, **** star looks/skier.. With Lindsey vohn gone.. This sex appealed female just got a big pay day..

We'll defer to your expertise on that.

The AL East might be the most interesting division The Jays may be relevant again but you neglected inning eater Buehrle and Josh Johnson to mention Cabrera, I think we have to know if he produces clean first, The Orioles were all those 1 run wins a fluke or what. The Rays are they going to step up and be counted. The Yankees trying to get under the luxury tax threshold while staying relevant with the ARod albatross around their necks. The Sox are they in rebuild mode or do they think they can win wit that roster

I don't think either side understands the defination of 'vast' b/c neither side's lists are vast improvements.

Tye both missed a certain MLB team that could have a winning season for the first time in 20 years. And, if it does so and avoids having a record second half collaspe for the third straight year THAT is a vast improvement!!!
