Hate going with the obvious choices but the Phillies rotation is just retardedly good and the Red Sox lineup is beastly.

I know I am a little late on this.......but, I think quite a few people --- mostly in the Philly area, got sucked into this whole 4 Aces thing in Philly. I remember before the season started, Philly wasn't losing two in a row. Philly won't lose two in a week, etc. I don't know... I was impressed with the top four, but questioned the bats/line-up. Injuries have been a part of the team. Sure they are leading the NL east right, but don't count Atlanta out and don't look past Florida. I don't think the Marlins will stick it out all season, I think the division goes to Philly or Atlanta. I don't think Philly or Atlanta make it to the Series though. I think the Series goes somewhere unexpected, perhaps Cleveland who are playing well now.

While I'm sure that's true KK, I think it should be noted by absolutely everyone that despite having no Chase Utley until this week, and being without Victorino this week, they're still in first place in Major League Baseball. That says alot.

They are still the team to beat in MLB, without question.

Personally, I don't think they are the team to beat in the MLB. Possibly in the NL, and that is only because of all the hype thrown upon them with the Lee signing.

I think the team to beat in the MLB comes out of the AL this year.

As for the Phils winning without Chase, actually no one in the Philly area is that concerned over Utley. Sure he brings a presence, and even though he's a Phillie, I do like the way he plays... Plays hard, 200% each time out... but that style of play brings out the injuries, more and more frequently, so expect DL stints more frequently as time moves on. On top of that, I still question their line-up.

I am not disputing the Phillies as a top team in the NL, and I would be more surprised if they missed the post-season than if they made it. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't make the World Series or if the AL comes out on top in the Series.

I don't know. Assuming decent health, I have a hard time believing that they will lose a short series with their starting pitching. The possibility of Halladay and Lee being able to pitch 5 games scares me.

So let me get this straight...if you had to choose today between these two teams :

C - Carlos Santana
1B - Matt LaPorta
2B - Orlando Cabrera
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
3B - Jack Hannahan
RF - Shin Soo Choo
CF - Grady Sizemore
LF - Shelley Duncan
DH - Travis Hafner

SP - Josh Tomlin, Justin Masterson, Fausto Carmona, Carlos Carrasco, Mitch Talbot

or...

C - Carlos Ruiz
1B - Ryan Howard
2B - Chase Utley
SS - Jimmy Rollins
3B - Placido Polanco
RF - Dominic Brown
CF - Shane Victorino
LF - Raul Ibanez
DH - John Mayberry Jr.

SP - Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt, Vance Worley

You take the first team?(I specified Indians because you mentioned them)

I mean, I get what you're saying if what you're saying is "it's not a forgone conclusion that the Phillies make the World Series". You're right about that. It's not. But to suggest they're not the heavy, heavy, prohibitive favourites to do so is silly.

Once they get there, you're right though. The Boston Red Sox still loom really large(although, their pitching is a disaster right now).

Pirates look like they are for real this season, they might be adding to there roster not trading away like most other seasons.

Texas is kicking some ass, 12 wins in a row, they should add one more SP if they can.
