Here's the link to the same thread before the season started.  Some of the comments left there seem pretty comical now (i.e. Kendrick over Kinsler, Guerrero over Bradley, Bedard as the best in the AL West, Putz over K-Rod, etc.).

I did include Figgins as the 3B despite not being on the depth chart due to bereavement.  I also replaced Harden with Gallagher in the A's rotation.  I added Rowland-Smith as Seattle's 5th starter.  I also pushed Hamilton to RF where he has been playing, moving Murphy to LF, and Byrd to CF.  Lastly, I included Padilla and Hurley in the Rangers' rotation as they are set to start in the 1st series after the ASB.

My picks:

C A's

1B Angels

2B Rangers

SS Rangers

3B Rangers

LF Rangers

CF Angels

RF Rangers

DH Rangers

SP1 Angels

SP2 Angels

SP3 A's

SP4 Angels

SP5 Angels

Setup Angels

Closer Angels
