2009 MLB Hot Chick Preview: AL East

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

Sox Versus Yankees

This is our first (annual?) Hot Chicks look at the upcoming baseball season. In it, we’ll feature a small, best case/worst case blurb for each team, followed by the very eye candy that drives the sports blogosphere. As you can see, we’ll be starting with the league no one ever, ever talks about, the AL East. Is this the year the Yankees (and their payroll) return from being merely “good” to dominant World Series team, or will the Red Sox, et al, be able to overtake them.

Oh, one more thing: we’re doing this in alphabetical order, so don’t think this is the predicted order of finish, because it’s not.

The Hot Chick Approach To MLB Previews

Cubs Body Paint

I’m not the biggest baseball fan in the world, this much is true. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the ability to hit a 90-plus MPH sphere coming right at you, as well as the ability to throw said pitch. Nevertheless, I find the regular season largely boring. With that in mind, and since baseball, with all its stats, games, and cheating, is still considered a past-time by many, it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge and embrace it — especially if I’d like to keep writing about sports in the summer. No Olympics this year to distract me.

With that in mind, I figured I’d make this as tolerable for me (and you, considering my lack of baseball expertise) by adding that one element that makes the blogosphere what it is today: the hot chick. Much like everything goes well with bacon, everything in sports goes better when there’s a hot fanbase or group of attractive supporters, paid or otherwise, to call upon, leading us to our 2009 MLB Hot Chick Preview. What I plan on doing is previewing the teams, while making liberal use of any attractive fans to “enhance” whatever words you actually pay attention to.

First up will be the American League East, and I’ll go in order from there. Can Philly defend their title? Will the Yankees incredible spring spending spree payoff with a trip to the World Series? Will the Marlins ever get above half capacity after the Opening Day buzz wears off? Who has the hotter fans? Boston or New York? These are just some of the things I’ll be looking at in the next six MLB preview post — you know, the important stuff.

Stay tuned.
