Season Preview IV

Baseball is like school, everyone has their own class (division), their own circle of friends (salary strata), their own inimitable style (way of playing the game)

It is in that spirit that this year's Peanuts from Heaven Season Preview focuses on the high school archetypes embodied by each team, the memorable things they have done, and where they'll undoubtedly end up when the season ends in 6 months

We switch now to the American League, beginning with the West
1st --Los Angeles Angels
Mr. All America
Quote: "I'm sorry my smile blinded you..."
Where they'll be in 6 months: Charming as hell, but not ruling the world

2nd--Texas Rangers
Quote: "Whatever..."
Where they'll be in 6 months: Still defying expectations by deciding between a flannel shirt and a leather jacket

3rd--Oakland A's
Grade Obsessor
Quote: "Is THIS the right formula?!??!?!?!"
Where they'll be in 6 months: Rocking back and forth on a window seat...crying.

4th--Seattle Mariners
Misunderstood Poet
Quote: "Winning isn't everything/everything is not winning."
Where they'll be in 6 months: Not winning.
