six teams you don't want to face in the playoffs
"I fear both the Tigers of Detroit and the Indians of Cleveland.."
I fear the Rangers of Texas.
Papa >> Papi.
I fear no one.
Definitely most scared of Detroit since they have the one guy who can totally dominate a 5 game series in Verlander.
Texas is good, but I think a lot of last year had to do with Lee getting in opponent's heads...this year they're just a very good but not totally intimidating team. Sorta like how the Rangers USED to be back in the day.
Anaheim and Cleveland I don't see making it, so whatevs. Boston, well we'll cross that bridge if/when we come to it.
