Who is the Best Team in the MLB?...

Baseball has just started and I want you to know who I think the best teams are going to be in the season.

I think the best team in Major League Baseball has to be the Detroit Tigers, because one they made it pretty far into the post season last year and won the American League Central Division.

Also, the Tigers have gained a key hitter and infielder, Omar Infante. He mainly plays second base, but can play short if he is needed there. He was the only main off season gain for the Tigers. They do still have plenty of talent with the Brewers Prince Fielder heading to the Tigers last season for 30 homers, 108 RBI's, and a batting average of .318. Which seems hard to contest with until you see their third baseman. Miguel Cabrera is his name, have you heard of him? He won the triple crown last year and it was the first one won since Mickey Mantle. It was obvious that he should have won because he had an average of .330, 44 long bombs, and 139 RBI's.

These players aren't the whole team though, because Justin Verlander is the real deal. Even though he didn't win a Cy Young Award last year. The reason why is because he had a record of 17-8 plus anERA of 2.64. On top of that he lead the league in strikeouts with 239. In  the outfield with Austin Jackson at center and he has dangerous speed at the top of the line-up. Last year he had 10 triples plus a batting average of .300.

If you think that there is a better team out there post it in the comments!
