"This week begins our divisional prediction series utilizing MLB 10 The Show to simulate the 2010 season. First up is the American League West… with the Angels, Rangers, Mariners, and A’s all vying for the top spot, the race for the AL West crown seems to be wide open. Ichiro has Seattle ready to claim their first division title since 2001 and if Griffey can bring back some magic from his past Mariner days, they just might have a shot. The Rangers are coming off their first winning season since 2004 and now adding Vlad Guerrero to an already stacked lineup (2nd most HRs in MLB in ’09), they will be a tough hurdle to overcome. Then there’s of course the Angels who have won the last three AL West titles. Torii Hunter anchors another solid lineup and with Scott Kazmir leading the way on the mound, they look poised to grab their fourth."
