That question is like asking "who has the best pitching in baseball"

Answer - the Yankees. I'm no Yankees fan, but they got incredible pitching, so I say Yankees over St. Louis in six.

As much as I hate them and even though it's early, the Giants are simply unstoppable right now. I definitely see the Giants making some noise in October again, but hopefully the Angels win it again!

I'm a big yankee fan, and really think this may be the best team they have had in a long time. Their hitting is just absolutely incredible. Their starting pitching is really great also. Just not very comfortable with their bullpen. But when Mariano Rivera and Steve Karsay come back - I think they will be unstoppable.

The cubs have a much better staff than the Yankers. I say the yankees get lucky to get past first round. I also say the cubs win it all this year.

as you stated yourself, way to early to tell.
who looks like contenders from my pov:
Yankees and they should with a pay roll of 150 million.
Red Sox, being a Red Sox fan I know they won't win and will choke sometime during the season.
Angels, Mariners, A's - AL West is brutal
I don't like anyone from the AL Central to do any damage come play-off time.
Giants, Dodgers, D-Backs - almost as tough as the AL West
Astros, Cardinals - I like the Astros here with all the injuries the Cardinals are going through.
Phillies - I don't really see anyone else competing with the Phillies in the NL East.

my best guess at this date would be the A's and Phillies.
A's beating the Yankees and Phillies beating the Giants.

Cubs only have a chance if they manage not to die after midseason. This seems to happen every year, strong start and by midseason, they just lay down and die.

If the Expos get some quality pitching, we are going far this year, I say one or 2 games out of the playoffs

They have a chance but you never know. I do now I hate the way Baseball playoff is, it should have more teams, cause anyone can win (look at Detroit losing to Anaheim), in baseball with the amount of wins that Anaheim would of had, they would of never made it. Just my two cents really

EXPOS!!!!!!!!!!!

Good ol Dusty won't let that happen. He has these guys primed. I just hope Grudzy and Gonzalez keep hitting like they've been hitting. Choi is a stud. Sosa needs to be traded while his name is hot for a couple great young prospects.

Yankees over either Philly or SF.

Hey Cubs... in October, let's see who is hoisting another pennant and who is making excuses and waiting until next year, okay? That goes for Red Sox fans too. If either team from Chitown makes it into the playoffs, it'll be the White Sox, and they had better start beating teams like the Royals if they want that to happen.

But if they do, then we get to hear 29 other teams' fans bitch about how they waah waah bought the series and it isn't waah waah fair? Sorry, can't have it both ways.

I think the New York Rangers and Washington Redskins proved that you can't "buy" championships, just like the Anaheim Angels proved that you don't have to. You have to pay your free agents, yes, but you also have to make smart personnel moves, develop young talent, not trade it away like the Yanks used to, and chose players that will complement each other and play well together.

Sorry but the Florida Marlins Proved you CAN buy a championship.

the Redskins were still under a cap and the Rangers are just a friggen joke.

The evil empire is doing nothing illegal, but with an extra 50-70 million alot of other teams in baseball would win a world series also.

Cubs fans, they do have a great rotation, and if Sammy can shake some helmet out of his ear he should be back to normal. Plus you have to figure they were a pre season favorite to go to the playoffs. That being said, Yanks look good, those deep pockets seem to be working. As for the Giants, they were picked to be # 3 in the NL west, starting to prove some people wrong

I can't make an unbiased decision as I am way too much a Giants fan. So, I vote for the Giants. They do after all have a good chance, almost as good as any team in baseball. Though, that is not really waht influences my decision.

it'd be funny to see cubs versus white sox, since neither of them have won anything in a damn long time. The last cubs world series was like 1920s?

Yankees
but then again I'm a Yankees fan, so I'm biased.
That being said, they've got a great lineup, the money & the spirit.
The always seems to go right to the end in the recent years,
so if anything they are a SERIOUS contender.

In the matter of money yes it can help... the yankees proved that. But you have to know how to spend your money well, if you don't then you end up like the Mets. They suck and they have the second highest payroll in the majors.

Oblivious to what I've just said I'm taking the Boston Red Sox

I'm liking the way the Expos are playing. So I'll go with them. Safe bet, it ain't... but that'll make it all the sweeter when they make it to the finals.

Atlanta Braves. They are playing pretty good baseball despite the loss to the Mets the other night.

Then again, I'm biased though.
