    AL Wildcard Teams (2): Los Angeles, Boston
    AL MVP: Evan Longoria
    AL Cy Young: Felix Hernandez
    AL Rookie of the Year: Tommy Morris (Seattle)
    AL Relief Man of the Year: Chris Perez


    NL East Champion: Atlanta
    NL Central Champion: St. Louis
    NL West Champion: San Francisco
    NL Wildcard Teams (2): Miami, Washington
    NL MVP: Pablo Sandoval
    NL Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw
    NL Rookie of the Year: Leandro Castro (Philadelphia)
    NL Relief Man of the Year: Jonathan Broxton

    What one team made the best moves for the upcoming 2013 season?- The Texas Rangers. They added Roy Halladay, Miguel Cabrera which makes them the easy world series favorite.

    What are your biggest needs for 2013?- We are a pretty light hitting team after trading away Pedro Alvarez and Brandon Allen. So I guess it would be to add someone with a bit more pop somewhere.

    Who is the sleeper pick on your team for a breakout season for 2013?- LF Eric Fryer. He will be our new starting Left Fielder and is expected to be an on base machine. If he can get a bump to his power, I think he becomes a threat in our lineup.

    Who is the World Series Champion for 2013?- Too hard to pick against Texas. I really like Atlanta again this year, but think that Texas lineup and now Roy Halladay makes them unbeatable.

    NL East Champion: Atlanta
    NL Central Champion: Cincinnati
    NL West Champion: San Francisco
    NL Wildcard Teams (2): Milwaukee, St. Louis
    NL MVP: Matt Kemp
    NL Cy Young: Strasburg
    NL Rookie of the Year: Tyler Skaggs (Arizona)
    NL Relief Man of the Year: Brian Wilson

    What one team made the best moves for the upcoming 2013 season?- If only there was a team that put together the best lineup in recent baseball history...

    What are your biggest needs for 2013?- I'd like to see how the season goes, but if we're in the hunt by the all-star break, then we'll be aggressive in adding a LF and maybe a little more power into my lineup.

    Who is the sleeper pick on your team for a breakout season for 2013?- 2B Ryan Flaherty. We traded away fan favorite Brian Roberts to give him that job full time. He won't always be as ridiculous as he was for the first week of the season, but I really think he's a candidate for a 4 WAR type season.

    Who is the World Series Champion for 2013?- Texas. If they don't win, then something went seriously wrong.

    What one team made the best move for the upcoming 2013 season? I am going to say Houston. Loved their move of getting Greinke in FA and Garza on waivers. Very underrated moves there.
    What are your biggest needs for 2013? 3B and middle infield. I am hoping Kouzmanoff gets back quick and fragile Brian Roberts can hold the fort at 2B until super prospect Drake "Hollywood" Hollow is ready.
    Who is the sleeper pick on your team for a breakout season for 2013? Andy Dirks. He really blossomed in AAA last year. I am a little worried about his eye but everything else looks really good.
    Who is the World Series Champion for 2013? Texas over Miami - lets see if that team can play with all the pressure.

    What are your biggest needs for 2013? Starting pitching. Can't be worse then last year but still pretty bad.

    Who is the World Series Champion for 2013? Texas. The team is just stacked from top to bottom.

    What one team made the best move for the upcoming 2013 season? Have to agree with the others that said Texas. They did the best job of making their team immediately better for this season.
    What are your biggest needs for 2013? The Giants need to pick up some starting pitching for the farm system. It's a contract year for Lincecum and management is still trying to come up with ways to keep him on the roster. The rest of the immediate needs were addressed last season.
    Who is the sleeper pick on your team for a breakout season for 2013? SS Brandon Crawford - Crawford is a plus fielder and will hit in the #8 spot all year. He has average hitter stats, but should see opportunities to drive in some runs with the lineup in front of him.
    Who is the World Series Champion for 2013? Atlanta over Texas in 6 games
