Picks from your latest BAT award contender:

AL East: Red Sox (except for Schilling's "right biceps degeneration"--ew--they're just as good as they were last year, perhaps better if Pedroia and Ellsbury improve and Ramirez and Ortiz don't decline much)

AL Central: Indians (the Cabrera addition is great, but more hitting wasn't really what the Tigers needed)

AL West: Mariners (my money's on Guerrero or Hunter breaking down, and Bedard/King Felix looks good)

AL Wild Card: Tigers (just can't bring myself to pick the Yankees)

NL East: Mets (the Santana addition is huge in a mediocre division)

NL Central: Cubs (if I had more confidence in Gallardo and Parra, I'd say the Brewers, but I think they're a year away)

NL West: D-Backs (they could be scary if Drew and Young improve)

NL Wild Card: Brewers (honestly, this is totally up in the air--insert Rockies, Phillies, or Dodgers if you like; I'm going to go with the Brewers just because I wish them well)

ALDS: Sox over Tigers, Mariners over Indians

AL Pennant: Red Sox

NLDS: Brewers over Cubs, D-Backs over Mets

NL Pennant: D-Backs

WS Champ: Oh, hell--D-Backs, with Webb and Haren as the new Schilling/Johnson. I know it's dependent on a lot of improvement from Drew, Upton, Young, Reynolds, and Owings, but I'll take the chance.
