Here's a prediction worth bookmarking. Among Timesman Kevin Baxter's claims: * Mariners are "the most improved team in baseball, making them the favorites to knock the Angels off their perennial perch in the American League West." * Casey Kotchman is "one of the best-fielding first basemen in history." No really, he said that. * Dave Cameron looks "really good in a speedo." OK, I made that last one up.
