The defending World Series champions hail from the city of Boston. The Red Sox will look a bit different this year than they did when they won the title in October, but they are still filled with talent at every defensive position and their pitching staff is set to be one of the best. They will again be led by designated hitter David Ortiz, who at the age of 37 last year, had one of the best seasons of his career. He hit .309 with 30 home runs and 103 RBIs and will be expected to lead them again in 2014.
Not to be outdone in the American League East, the New York Yankees made plenty of wise moves in the offseason to help get their team back into playoff contention this season. The team let Robinson Cano leave and sign a massive deal with the Seattle Mariners and their star closer, Mariano Rivera, retired after a long career in pinstripes. At the top of the list for key moves, the Yankees signed Masahiro Tanaka, the 25-year-old Japanese phenom to a 7-year/$155 million contract. Tanaka was 99-35 in his career in Japan including an astonishing 24-0 record with a 1.27 ERA last season. He has completed three straight sub-2.00 ERA seasons and will look to become the new ace of the team. Also new to the Yankees this season is catcher Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran.
In the National League, it has been injuries that have been the biggest news for one team predicted to win it all, the Atlanta Braves. Coming into the season, Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy were supposed to be the top two pitchers in their rotation, but both are done for the year after being told they each needed Tommy John Surgery. The Braves will also be without Mike Minor to start the season, meaning this team will have a lot of work to do to stay the leaders in the East.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are a team built to win now. Led by Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu in the starting rotation and Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez on offense, this team has all the weapons to be one of the best in the sport.
For baseball fans, 2014 is shaping up to be a great season. With so many teams putting up great performances a year ago after years of struggles, teams are lot more even now than ever before and the fans are the ones that win out in the end.
