The 2015 Major League Baseball season is here as we get you ready for the action by taking a quick preview. If you’re like us you couldn’t wait for opening day to arrive welcoming the warm summer air to arrive. The trips to the ball park with family and friends to cheer on your favorite team or even the road trip to one of the historic ball parks around the country including Fenway Park or Wrigley Field. Nonetheless we have you covered for all your MLB tickets needs this entire 2015 season.
Let’s get started by taking a look at each of the three divisions in the American League.
AL East Division: The American League East division might be one of the closer races in all of baseball with all five teams looking to compete for the division This includes a Baltimore Orioles team that took home their first division crown last season since 1997. For the Orioles it is simple hit a ton of home runs making it easy for the pitchers to win games. It doesn’t hurt that you play in one of the better hitter ball parks in the game and one of the nicest in Camden Yards.
As we look past the Orioles the rest of the division includes the Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays. When we look at these four teams all four have their strengths to compete. The Red Sox added key veterans Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval to a lineup that includes Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. The Blue Jays might have the best lineup in baseball with Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista. While the Rays might surprise many with a very talented but young pitching staff.
AL Central Division: The Detroit Tigers will look to defend their AL Central crown but this division features a few teams built to contend. The one team that could be ready to take over that top spot is the Kansas City Royals. After last season’s disappointing loss in the World Series to the San Francisco Giants, the Royal have a bigger goal on their plate this year.
Outside of the Minnesota Twins who many experts predict to finish in the bottom of the division this could be a four team race including the Chicago White Sox with a solid lineup built around Jose Abreu and also the Cleveland Indians with CY Young winner Corey Kluber.
AL West Division: In what might be the most exciting division in baseball this could be the Seattle Mariners year to bring home a pennant to Safeco Field. The Mariners have one of the top rotations in baseball led by Felix Hernandez but managed to add the reigning home run champ Nelson Cruz this offseason to their lineup.
Along with the Mariners the Los Angeles Angels and Oakland A’s are also built to win now. The Angels are led by MVP winner Mike Trout and future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols. While the A’s continue to work their money ball ways to make it to the playoffs. Rounding out the division will be the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros who have a very talented but young team.
NL East Division: Entering the offseason the Washington Nationals looked to in good shape to repeat as division champs. Those odds increased when the team added Max Scherzer to a rotation that led all of baseball in earned run average. Along with Scherzer the Nationals rotation includes Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister, Jordan Zimmerman and Gio Gonzalez making Nationals Park a fun place to be this time of year.
Outside of the Nationals this division is mixed up with the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins. None of these four teams have been giving any credit but we suggest not sleeping on them. The Mets are one team that could make a run with a healthy Matt Harvey anchoring the rotation.
NL Central Division: The NL Central reminds us of the AL East with five teams that honestly could contend for the division. The one team we are keeping our eyes on this summer is the Chicago Cubs who will eventually call up Kris Bryant to Wrigley Field. Bryant who put on a power show this spring is the top prospect in all of baseball.
Rounding out the rest of the division includes the Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers. All of these teams feature some key pieces starting with the Pirates with Andrew McCutchen . Moving over to the Cardinals the team added Jason Heyward this offseason to bolster their outfield play while young second baseman Kolton Wong continues to mature into an every day player. The Reds could be the team to watch if Joey Votto stays healthy for an entire season.
NL West Division: The last division to look at is the NL West division that has won three of the past five World Series Titles. All three of those belong to the San Francisco Giants including last year’s crown after Madison Bumgarner turned in one of the greatest pitching performances in the history of baseball. That being said the Giants have missed the playoffs after each of the last two World Series titles.
The two teams to watch in this division is the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. The Dodgers were the early favorites before the Padres added Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Will Myers and James Shields in the offseason. The Dodgers on the other hand have a lineup that includes Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez as well as the best pitcher in baseball Clayton Kershaw.
Two teams that might be getting looked over is the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks. Each of these teams have very talented lineups as the Diamondbacks feature Paul Goldschmidt and Mark Trumbo in the middle of the lineup while the Rockies have Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki hitting balls out of Coors Field each night.
