    Ok, so according to this fox sports article, these are the top 5 contenders for this season. Some have me scratching my head, but I could actually see a few of these being realistic. Although, it's very early in the season, so it may be too early to tell, at least it's fun to think about. I'd like to get everyone's opinion. Do you think these picks are solid? Or are they just something out of la la land(not the movie)? Last year's champions are currently 18-18, just wanted to put that out there as a point of reference going forward. And my Rangers are 18-20.

    1. Colorado Rockies (23-14)

    2. Arizona Diamondbacks (21-16)

    3. Cincinnati Reds (19-16)

    4. Minnesota Twins (18-14)

    5. Milwaukee Brewers (19-17)

    Pro baseball to me is the hardest sport for rankings throughout the year. All it will take is for the Cubs to go on a 5-game win streak (easy to do in a few weeks) and this list will change quite a bit.

    I'm a Rangers fan too. The funniest thing about that is listening to local radio; it's a roller-coaster ride. Just when you are convinced they suck, they go on a streak and just when you're convinced they're awesome, they lose a few games. And on and on until the playoff spots are announced. Really hard to tell who is 'for real' until you get just before playoff time.

    That said, my money's still on the Cubs. It's way early on, and a .500 record is solid enough to turn it on down the stretch.

    I can't agree with you more. My money is on the Cubs as well. I hope they're just getting warmed up.
