1. Toronto Blue Jays (95-67): The Blue Jays have really beefed up their pitching staff for the 2013 season with the additions of R.A. Dickey and Josh Johnson. If Brett Lawrie can remain healthy for most of the season I expect big things out of the Jays this season.
2. Tampa Bay Rays (90-72): As it seems like for the Rays every year this team plays better than it looks on paper. Their starting pitching remains strong with guys like Matt Moore in your rotation, I see a wild card spot for the Rays this year.
3. New York Yankees (87-75): The Yankees don't have the depth as they have had in years past, and with an aging but talented lineup, the disabled list may be this team worst enemy.
4. Baltimore Orioles (83-79): Lightning in a bottle was a major part of this teams post season appearance last year. Their starting rotation will be well enough to keep them above average but their offense may cause them from repeating last season success.
5. Boston Red Sox (81-81): The Red Sox did some rebuilding to compete this season. They certainly have the talent to be a above .500 ball club, but they will have to hope pitching performs better than last season.
