Whatever, 2 years ago that wasn't nearly as crazy as you picking Colorado to win the division this year. "stay hot"

Haha Colorado had a good squad, they lacked starting pitching, though. I thought they were going to get plenty from Alex White and Drew Pomeranz (the 2 dudes they got from Cleveland for Jimenez) not to mention the fireballer Jhoulys Chacin. They added Michael Cuddyer. Not to mention they had two of the best players at their positions in Troy Tulo and Car-Go. As it turns out, injuries and the lack of progression with White and Pomeranz killed them.

Cards - Tigers finals. Tigers take it. Would love to see either the O's or A's though come out in the AL.

If Baltimore wins this title, it will likely be the biggest upset in baseball history.

American League East is a different kind of animal. In baseball it's harder to make the playoffs than in any other sport, that's what makes this run ridiculous.

The Reds will be in the world series....I'm really confident in that. Would be really great to see them face the O's in the finals. Those are two teams I like...though I hate the other teams in the division in the AL East (Rays, Sox, Yanks) I've always liked Baltimore. Love their field, I remember going to my first baseball game in 2001 it was with the Jays and O's, and that memory stuck with me since. 15 years is a long time too, so it would be a great run if they make it. Really got to agree with Dice about the AL East being a different animal...if you're a Blue Jays, Orioles, or Rays fan life can be pretty brutal being in the same division as two big spending teams.

Was the AL East better than the AL West? I think the A's story may be a little more impressive.

Well, despite having one more team, the East managed a combined 82-92 record vs the West this year, so you may be onto something (the A's alone won 28 games against the East).

I can't say they aren't impressive, trends and cultures are hardest to turn than anything else; especially in something that can be super tedious like an MLB season. Baltimore had been so bad/mediocre for so long without even a chance to make the playoffs, that's what puts them over in my eyes.

Possibly because 2 of the 3 AL East teams are low payroll and don't have many stars but competed till the end but the AL West had 1 low payroll team. Disputable.

Absolutely a valid argument. Baltimore making it was shocking and considering how bad they've been, it's crazy to see them playing a game 5 in the ALDS. But Baltimore has been playing great baseball all year... Oakland's comeback is what takes the cake for me.

It was an epic choke indeed. Joey Votto still my favourite player though.
