The Outside Corner:
Los Angeles Angels
Toronto Blue Jays
What else can baseball fans do in January but dream of October? In You May Say I'm a Dreamer, the Outside Corner staff will imagine the route to a World Series in 2012 title for all 30 teams.
Dream? The Angels don't need no stinking dream. Reality seems to be suiting them just fine.
While I would love to dream up some fantastical scenario like we have done for many of the other teams in this series, it simply isn't necessary since rookie GM Jerry Dipoto already made the dreams of Angel fans come true by way of his epic signing of Albert Pujols, who, you know, is only the best hitter alive. It was a move that sent such huge shockwaves through baseball that the complementary addition of All-Star C.J.

When will life let us move on from hearing or seeing the name "Albert Pujols"? Despite being fans of the World Series Champions, life still hates us. Any time something Albert Pujols-related comes across our eyes or ears, it feels like a continuous nightmare that we can't wake up from. Sorry for dragging you into hell with us, but check out a little bit of this song...
Speaking from the Dominican Republic, Albert Pujols told Enrique Rojas of ESPNdeportes.com that he plans on reporting to his new club's Spring Training complex a week before position players are scheduled to, putting him in Tempe, Ariz., at or around Feb. 19.
ST. LOUIS - News of Edwin Jacksons one-year deal with the Washington Nationals helped finalize the Cardinals lengthy list of draft picks early in this years Amateur Draft.
The Cardinals will have six selections in the top 100 of the June draft, their most since also having six picks in the top 100 in the 2005 draft. Among the selections that year were Colby Rasmus and Tyler Greene...
I'm worried about the St. Louis Cardinals -- and not just because they've lost first baseman Albert Pujols, manager Tony La Russa and, at least for the time being, pitching coach Dave Duncan.
Those departures alone are enough to give one pause about the defending World Series champions, but my concern runs deeper.
This is a physically fragile club. Free-agent right-hander...
When it comes to baseball's battle of leagues, it's no contest: the AL is king. Especially now, Danny Knobler says, with Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder switching leagues and the NL's big-market teams in disarray.
Baseball season is only a few, short months away! Here are 10 story lines to start getting you ready for hot dogs, beer, and everything baseball…
1. Can the National League still compete?
