AL Rankings: (Playoff Finish listed)

1. Dover-World Series Champ
Led by their powerful and young offense (MVP-1b/dh-Ramsay(awesome power), AS-C-Myers(powerful), AS-LF-Nathan(power), AS-RF Purcell(power and obp), 1b-Hamilton (power and obp). All 5 power hitters are capable of hitting 40+hrs for this season.  Adding a young stud CF-Pizzaro and future Hall Famer DH-Chen to the mix as well.  Dover improved their veteran rotation led by vet AS SP-Gardner and future ace rookie SP-Guzman.  Dover will be hard to beat and has some room to grow with alot of their talent in their 20's.

2. Phildelphia-
Led by a deep rotation SP ace-Winchester, AS SP vet- Duncan, Young ace SP-Martin, and SP-Pineda.  AS Closer-Rodriquez is one of the best in Morgan. Their balance offense is led by AS SS-Mercedes (power), AS 3b-Wallace (obp), AS 2b- Terry and Rookie CF-Price.  Phildelphia is another team with alot of talent in their 20's.

3. Vancouver-AL West Champ
Veteran Squad led by CY SP legend-DeRojas and SP-Gabriel.  They have a young closer in Reimold.  Their offense is led by AS SS-Bolick, AS LF-Hukata (great power), 1b-Howard, AS-3b-Peguro, and AS-2b-Purcell (obp).  Vancouver looks to be the favorite in the tough AL West.

4. Milwaukee-
Led by a deep rotation AS-SP Uribe, AS-SP-Nieves, AS SP-Ford, and young SP-Bravo.  AS Closer Cubilian is one of the best in Morgan.  The more balanced offense is led by AS 3b-Carson and AS LF-Gonzalez.

5. Salem-AL Runner UP
Led by strong pitching CY SP legend Duran and Young Ace SP-Kotchman.  Pitching is their bread and butter in Salem.  Their offense is led by AS SS-Martin (great glove) and AS 1b-Sanders (great power).  Salem looks to continue their run towards another playoff apperance.

6. Richmond-AL South Champ
Led by a veteran core which hopes to improve on last year's 100 win season.  CY SP-Gabriel leads a veteran pitching staff.  MVP 3b-Santiago (possibly the best player in the game) leads a balanced offense with the help of AS RF-Abercombie (power/obp), AS SS-Mota (great glove), AS CF-Bland (moving 2b for his glove), AS IF-Scheffler (moving to 1b with his obp). Richmond is still the class of the south division.

7. Washington

This team which is revamping their themselves in talent and location after moving from Indy.  They are still led by strong pitching AS SP vet-Moya and AS SP ace-Toca.  Their offense is powered by the powerful AS 1b-Duensing.  Rochester is still a very dangerous team with their remaining talented stars on their roster.

11. Charlotte-
They have some promising young talent on the way.  They are led by AS SS-Nitching and AS DH-Eveland with great power.  Couple of their young talented players are 2b-Brush and Closer-Cortes.  Charlotte and Texas could be a problem for Richmond if they slip up.

12. Syracuse-
They are a team in their 2nd year of rebuilding.  They have one of the closers in AS Jacquez and they have a young power hitting RF-Bailey as well.  Syracuse did finish above .500 in year one of rebuilding.

2. New Orleans-NL Runner Up
They are led by a very deep pitching staff CY SP vet-Phelps, AS SP-James, AS SP vet-Witse, and young pitching ace SP-Burgess.  They have a solid closer in SP-Lui.  Their offense is led by AS CF-Brinkley (all around star with power), AS IF's Jackson and Randa, and young power hitting 1b-Moore.  New Orleans seems prepared for the competitive NL South.

They love their starters in Salt Lake led by AS ace SP-Tilland and AS SP-Gose.  Their deep offense is led by AS 2b-Crosby (star), AS RF-Cepeda, SS-Camacho (power), and AS 3b- Sanez (obp).  Salt Lake looks to get back to the World Series after missing the series last season after Winning the previous 3 titles.

This young team is led by pitching SP rookie-Valenzula (future ace) and SP young ace-Post.  Their offense is powered by 1b-Lopez(power), AS 3b-Molina, and 1b vet-Griggs.  They have young position talent in RF-Martinez and SS-Nichols. The defending NL North champ won't be easy to dethrone from their crown in the division.

7.  Pittsburgh-
They probably have the most young talent in morgan outside of Washington in the AL.  Their pitching is led by AS SP-Montana.  Most of the talent is in their everyday lineup with AS 1b-Ramirez (power), 3b-Morgan (power), CF-Arias (glove), SS-Witasck (glove/power), LF-Padilla (power), and future stars in 2b-Iglesas and RF-Fernandez.  There is alot of talent for the new owner to use to turn the franchise around.

They have a good mixture of young and veteran talent.  They are led by their pitching with AS ace SP-Holloway.  Their offense is led by veterans 3b-Moorman, SS-Coombs, and RF-Molina.  They have a young talent in RF-Manship.  Chicago seems poised to break through with a solid season in the North.

9. Arizona-
They seem to be improved in the tough NL West Division.  They are led by AS ace-Byrne and SP-Nunez.  Their offense is led by AS vet 2b-Hannity, Young 2b-Veras, and Rookie 2b-Mulholland.  Arizona seems poised to challenge for a wild card spot but it will be difficult with the improving middle of the NL (Teams 7-13 are very similar in talent).

10. Colorado Springs-NL West Champ
They are rebuilding with young players but still have plenty of talent to be a factor.  They are led by CY and RY ace-SP Soto.  Their offense is led by AS-CF-Hernandez (glove), AS LF-Terry (power), 3b-Duran, and 1b-Below (rookie).

11. St Louis-
They have some of the best young talent in the game.  They are hoping to improve by 5-10 games for this season. Their young talent is AS RF-Hatcher (young star), AS C-Houston (power/obp), CF-Newfield, and LF-McMasters.  They have AS Closer in Ackely.

12. Pawtucket-
They could be a surprise team with a new owner for this season.  They are led by a powerful offense AS SS-Cortez (power), AS C-Redman (obp), AS RF-Cabrera (power), and AS 3b-Ozuna.  Their pitching is led by SP ace-Carey.

13. Santa Fe-
They are a veteran team which knows how to win.  They are led by AS 2b-Guitterez and vets RF-Menodza and 3b-Barden.  Their pitching staff is led by SP-Alexander and Matheson.
