2013 Preview: The American League East

20 Comments

For the past few days we’ve been previewing the 2013 season. Here, in handy one-stop-shopping form, is our package of previews from the American League East.

The Blue Jays totally revamped the rotation and added Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera to the lineup. Is that enough for a 20+ game swing and the division title?

The Rays lost James Shields but they still have tons of pitching. But where is the offense going to come from?

Is the Jeter-Rivera Yankees dynasty finally over? Do the Bombers have a better chance at first place or the cellar?

The Orioles shocked the world by making the playoffs in 2012. Was it smoke and mirrors or the beginning of a sustained return to prominence in Baltimore?

The Red Sox’ 2012 was a train wreck. Are they back on track in 2013?

Below are our team-by-team previews for the AL East as well as our HBT Extra feature on the division. Enjoy.
