FOX Sport's first full week of Major League Baseball coverage is scheduled this week highlighted by a live, prime time Saturday telecast of the Los Angeles Angels at New York Yankees. There hasn't been this much buzz in Anaheim in a long time and the arrival of super slugger Albert Pujols is just part of the excitement. The Angels also bolstered their rotation by plucking left-handed pitcher C.J. Wilson from division rival Texas. With the addition of those two key players to a team that won 86 games last year, it's easy to see why there are high expectations around the Angels' organization. As for the Yankees, high expectations are just the norm. The 2011 club won the American League East, but lost to the Detroit Tigers in game five of the Division Series. Anything short of a World Series ring seems to be cause for concern in New York, and once again, the Yankees were busy in the offseason making changes to the roster. Two key changes to the starting rotation, the addition of Michael Pineda and Kiroki Kuroda, most likely moves the Yankees to favorites in the tough American League East.
