2010 Rangers

The Rangers looked good in their first test against prominent division rivals, the Oakland A's, winning the series this week 2-1.  And as they head up to Toronto today to challenge the mighty Blue Jays, BSG takes a look at what makes this such a great stance team.  With the Angels on the decline, C.J. Wilson getting things done on the mound, and Hamilton, Kinsler, and Cruz at the plate, might this be the year the Rangers add a 2nd win to their postseason journal?  Or is it just the year you buy a book about batting stances?  Either way, it's the 2010 Rangers.

2010 Reds

Just to prove that we haven't forgotten our roots now that we're big time published authors, today we continue on with our team "preview" series.  We'll kick things off with the Reds, who, as BSG notes, haven't seen a winning season since 2000.  But things are looking up in Cincy these days, and partially thanks to the stance magic of Brandon Phillips, the Reds currently find themselves only a game back of the mighty Cardinals.  In a preview that takes an equal look at fertility and baseball, here are the 2010 Reds.  Enjoy!

2010 Rockies

From the way things have started out there, whoever comes outta the NL West this year is gonna have to win a fight.  Will it be the Rockies?  Gammonds and Reynolds like em, but does BSG?  He got an inside look at the rocky mountain boys last year, but, as usual, it's the lineup that interests him most.  And for our daily reader Don Baylor, he's got a couple suggestions on how to manage your hitters.  It's the 2010 Rockies.

2010 Indians Preview

How many weeks into the season will calling these things previews start to sound ridiculous?  We gotta be getting close.  Man how bout that game 2 last night Cleveland?  You need an elbow repair STAT!  Here's hoping the good people of Cleveland still have several weeks left of pulling for the Cavs.  Oh, and not completely unrelated to that, here are the 2010 Indians.  Enjoy!

2010 Tigers Preview

BSG's worries that Magglio Ordonez stored his mojo in his jheri curl mullet were calmed yesterday as Mags got his 2,000th career hit in a win over the Twins.  Those two seemed to have picked back up right where they left off last year in the AL Central, which should mean another fun battle for all of us.  BSG likes the Detroit lineup, and, like the rest of the world, thinks the Damon addition will probably help.  But he still misses that jheri curl. Enjoy!

2010 Mariners Preview

Fun fact for the day: today in 1986 Roger Clemens struck out 20 Mariners.  The M's are lookin better in 2010 though, and after a pre-season cover appearance on ESPN The Magazine, they're the trendy pick in the AL West.  Maybe folks are just sick of the Angels taking it, who knows.  If you're not familiar with the new Seattle lineup, BSG doesn't miss a one.  Here are your 2010 Seattle Mariners.  Enjoy!

2010 Rays Preview

So we swear we recorded this before the Rays had the best record in baseball, but even if you don't believe us, they do, and we did, so lets get on it with it.  BSG likes him some Rays.  He likes that it would feel as natural to see Madden at a Coldplay concert as in the dugout at Tropicana.  He likes that they've got a roster brimming with young talent.  He likes that, in the toughest division in baseball, they've come outta the gates red hot.  Does that have anything to do with the fact that they gave him his own jersey?  You decide.  The 2010 Rays.

2010 Angels Preview

Fresh off his career 1000th hit, BSG takes a look at Hideki Matsui and the rest of the 2010 Angels.  Just how does Mike Scioscia keep this club at the top of the AL West and competing in the playoffs year after year?  BSG isn't sure, but he loves the lineup and the fact that the All-Star game will be in Anaheim this year.  Enjoy your 2010 Angels!

2010 Blue Jays Preview

As the Blue Jays look to Twitter to solve their attendance problem at SkyDome, BSG looks to Toronto's past to help get their fans in the mood for the 2010 season.  The AL East is a tough place to live, so why mess with analyzing current rosters when we can hop in the Wayback Machine and visit the magical year of 1998, and a lineup too good to be true.  Enjoy!

2010 Mets Preview

Mets fans, BSG feels your pain.  The big offseason move for Jason Bay has yet to really have an impact, and with injuries to guys like Beltran, you 'other' NY fans are left to wonder, once more, when will it be our year.  So BSG invites you to enjoy the little things; like the new David Wright leg kick, the posture of Gary Matthews Jr., and the hope that is Ike Davis.  Stay strong Mets fans, stay strong.

2010 White Sox Preview

If there's a better collection of stances in MLB this year, BSG can't find it.  In fact he dares you, nay, DOUBLE-DOG dares you to name a better group of batter's box antics than what they have going on in Chicago this season.  The 2010 White Sox are just loaded; Quentin, Beckham, Pierre, Konerko, Alexei, Teahen, Vizquel, the list goes on and on.  So here they are, your 2010 White Sox.  Enjoy!

Everyone's gearing up for the start of the Philles-Braves series tonight, and the showdown between Ryan Howard and his young counterpart, the rookie phenom force that is Jason Heyward.   BSG is excited about what's going on in the ATL this season too.  The combo of the Heyward sensation, the final season for Bobby Cox, and a birthday shout-out from Ron Gant, have him making some rare post-season predictions for the perennial NL power.  Find out what they are in his 2010 Braves Preview.  Enjoy!

2010 Brewers Preview

Last year BSG got a chance to visit Miller Park, have a stance-off with Prince Fielder, and imitate the Brewers for the Brewers in their stretching circle.  So you'll excuse him if he has a special place in his heart for Milwaukee.  Not to mention, the sausage race may be the best thing going in between-inning entertainment in all of baseball.  For your weekend, here's the 2010 preview of the brew-crew.  Enjoy!

2010 Giants Preview

Aubrey Huff's inside-the-park HR yesterday put the capper on the Giants' hot start to the 2010 season.  BSG will miss the presence of Carney Lansford on the SF coaching staff, but he loves the stances he leaves behind.  Sandoval, Velez, Rowand - all gold.  Will this treasure trove of batter's box goodness have the hits to go with the rotation?  If so, get ready for alot of Tony Bennett AT&T Park.  Enjoy!

2010 Phillies Preview

Will Jayson Werth's spring training beard and the addition of Placido Polanco be enough to get the Phils to their 3rd straight World Series appearance?  BSG likes the lineup.  And with big Mr. Howard still hitting the long ball, and Utley, Victorino, and the rest of the gang still in place, it'd be hard to bet against em.  Here's the Phillies 2010 preview, Enjoy!

2010 Twins Preview

The Minnesota Twins opened up Target Field with a bang yesterday, beating the Red Sox 5-2 and ushering in the open-air era.  The end of the Metrodome has BSG wondering though; are these still the loveable, blue-collar Twins of old?  One things for sure, with Mauer, Morneau, Nathan, and now Jim Thome, the Twins have the star-power, and perhaps the swagger, to make some noise in the AL this year.  Enjoy!
