Call the fire department! The Washington Nationals will be leaving a lot of fire damage in their wake as they burn their way back to the National League East title in 2013.
With a little extra heat to ignite a fire under this team, the Nats could blaze a trail into the playoffs and rocket to a World Series championship.
The glow on the West Coast comes from the new Los Angeles Dodgers ownership burning money like Cub Scouts roasting marshmallows over a campfire.
This team’s ambitions are fueled by the largest payroll in American sports history, and it keeps getting larger. The fire damage will be minimized due to their sucking all the oxygen out of the room.
The potent pitching of the St. Louis Cardinals, featuring some powerful young arms, could end up smoking the competition at the plate and propelling this team to the top of the National League Central.
The Minnesota Twins are a team in need of some restoration. Fire and brimstone speeches won’t overcome their lack of hitting and pitching. With no offense and no defense, they have no place to go but down in the American League Central. The Houston Astros will likely be in a similar situation in their new home—the American League West. Trying to light a fire under these two teams this season could result in some self-inflicted fire damage.
Which team will be burning up the bats and shooting balls over the walls? The San Diego Padres are moving in the fences, which gives them an edge, but it remains to be seen which team will have the heavy hitters this season.
