1. Phillies - 4 aces and added a nice bat in Pence, the odds on favorites to win the World Series
2. Rangers - Incredible offense when healthy, tremendous defensive club, solid not spectacular starting pitching, great bullpen with adds of Adams and Uehara
3. Red Sox - Losing Bucholz hurts them and knocks them down a peg, great lineup, solid starters, good back end of the bullpen.
4. Giants - Great SP, Great closer, and just got a nice bat in Beltran.
5. Braves - Lineup and hitting is a great weakness for this team, SP is good but not as good as Giants, bullpen is great.
6. Yankees - They have CC and a good lineup. Team is aging very quickly.
7. Tigers - Verlander and Miggy, not enough for a deep playoff run.
8. NL Central winner

Prediction

Texas Rangers vs Philadelphia Philles in the World Series

how can the Rangers lead the AL in errors and be tremendous on defense?

I can see your point, but every player on their team is considered a plus defender. They get lazy too many times is the only reason I can come up with, but come playoff time, they will be 100% focused.

Even unrepentent homers can't bring themselves to rank their team ahead of the Phillies any more.

No, you are trying to cover up your homerness by putting another team above the Rangers and going "look, I'm not a homer, I didn't put my team #1" when in fact the Rangers are not #2 either and it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. Phucking homer.

I thought this was a legit ranking until I saw Atlanta 5th and realized this was OP's opinion.

Rangers are easily #2 with their moves.
