A. L. West Crystal Ball….

What will the American League West look like come October 2010. I know we are not even halfway through spring training and already I am looking to October. This is a time when I want to have a record i look back at and say “Jeeez  was I wrong” or “Wow I nailed that one”.

Like it or not here are a few suggestions for fans of the American League West teams…

Oakland A’s fans, I am suggesting that you…

…invest some of your money in this Northwest Bolster Pillow at $19.99 Item no. 3538060 from the MLB shop, because the Oakland A’s are going to put you back to sleep this year and finish at the bottom of the division.

 L.A. Angels of Anaheim should consider reviewing the possible purchase of this….

 Memory Company ‘Born to be’ Piggy Bank for $19.99, Item no. 3055337, from MLB shop, so you can start saving for game tickets for the 2011 season, because the Angels this year will disappoint as they struggle to stay in contention with the teams above them.

Texas Rangers fans should seriously consider splurging on the purchase of…

Kolder Jersey Bottle Holder for $14.99, Item no. 3094273, from the MLB shop as I fear this is the only thing the Rangers will hold in 2010 as they once again fall short of the division title.

Seattle Mariners fans will need one of these….

….Turner Licensing 2010 Box Calendar & Paper Cube for $21.99, Item no. 3785928, from the MLB shop, so that they can keep track of the post season games they will enjoy after winning the AL West division title for 2010.

any sarcasm is not meant to offend, unless it does, then consider the possibilities of more during the season.

…..and finally so as not to generate any hard feelings with a fellow blogger I have added a link to his blog to my side bar, so now you can navigate to both of these Tampa Bay fan blogs Rays Renegade and More Cowbell from my site…..

product images above are all from the respective teams online MLB shop, no guarentees on accuracy of pricing, please visit each teams MLB shop through the specific teams official website to make any purchase or for more information on these or any other products, trademarks, trade names, copyrights and patents are the property of their respective owners.

    Rather remarkable turn around since they fired the GM. Because the Angel’s farm is a machine, I never count them out. But this looks like Seattle’s division to loose.

    Seattle ‘s team today reminds me an awful lot of a 2008 Texas Rangers team. Second year mgr, alot of new teammates. I think the AL West belongs to Texas this year. Our team is scary this year…the experienced youth if you will. I have a feeling loyal Ranger fans will be richly rewarded this year…

  3. devilabrit says:

    btb – I agree, Seattle’s to loose….

    Jen – Thanks for hitting my blog, if I thought the Rangers were clear fav’s they’d be at the top, I think they will challenge Seattle all the way, it could come down to September to decide this one….

    Hmm… The Rangers might like to invest in a few labels for the bottles that say, “we apologize for any further dissapointments this season”

    You’d have to break the piggy bank just to buy that piggy bank! $20. Sheesh! I like Texas’ team, but I don’t see them having good enough pitching. Whereas the Angels are good all around. I was surprised that they didn’t do more last year in the playoffs. Oh well.

    A great welcome to Renegade to the hallowed halls of your blog roll. I was very honored to have been placed on one of the premiere Phill’s blogs from the get go. The more Rays bloggers the merrier!!

    Good stuff!!

    Yes! Mariners will totally dominate in 2010! I think the Rangers and Angels will have a bit of a fight for second place, but I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Nice job!

I’d love to wow you with all the marked improvements of Ranger’s pitching, both in our rotation and farm teams…but if u can’t even check and see if your ‘comment’ applies, why would i waste my time . I will however give you this HOT lead, but, shh… don’t tell anyone…NOLAN RYAN is our president AND part owner now!! andtherehasALREADYbeenanoticableimprovement! Sorry, but you heard it here FIRST…Rangers are going win the AL West.I understand the reluctance, but i’m telling ya! I watched this team, very close last year…somehing is clicking in Arlington, Tx. Trust me. it’s a woman’s intuition 🙂 (raysfanboy, go ask your momma what that is, she’ll tell ya 😉

    so important, i apparently had to post it 3X….sorry about that 🙂

    • devilabrit says:

      Jen – No apology needed, All women are allowed to repeat themselves, it’s kind of like a woman’s ‘intuition’ only a ‘prerogative’ …LOL. 🙂

  13. phillies_phollowers says:

    The piggy bank is hysterical. And I actually have that calendar (in Phillies) – it is a little disappointing; too much generic triva and not much team-based stuff. Oh well! It cost me a dollar…can’t complain.

    Mariners are gonna be the team to beat in the AL West. They’ve upgraded so much, probably the most of any team in MLB. Thanks for commenting on my blog!!!
