Boston and the New York Yankees are tied for first at 97 overall.AdvertisementHere's what we've got right out of the box. Bear in mind these will probably change with a roster update on or very soon after the game releases March 2. Which is good because Chien-Ming Wang signed with the Nats today and I'm thinking they just dealt for the pennant.Boston Red Sox 97 New York Yankees 97 Philadelphia Phillies 91 Los Angeles Angels 91 Los Angeles Dodgers 90 Texas Rangers 90 St. Louis Cardinals 90 Tampa Bay Rays 89 Minnesota Twins 89 San Francisco Giants 87 Colorado Rockies 87 Milwaukee Brewers 86 Chicago Cubs 86 Atlanta Braves 85 Arizona Diamondbacks 84 Chicago White Sox 84 Baltimore Orioles 83 Seattle Mariners 81 New York Mets 79 Kansas City Royals 77 Oakland Athletics 77 Florida Marlins 76 Washington Nationals 75 Cincinnati Reds 75 Detroit Tigers 75 Houston Astros 75 Toronto Blue Jays 74 Cleveland Indians 73 Pittsburgh Pirates 73 San Diego Padres 72When I ran these by a pal in Boston (a non-gamer) his first reaction was "That game must be pitching heavy." That's a reasonably perceptive remark and based on my time with it, he may have the explanation. Boston's hitting lineup doesn't look as good as the Yankees, nor would I say it beats the Phillies. They picked up Adrian Beltre in the offseason but he spent most of 2009 hurt and he hasn't sniffed a prestige number in any hitting category since a bust-out year in 2004 to get him a huge contract in Seattle. Mike Cameron is no Jason Bay, who departed for the Mets. Ortiz faces questions after last year. Also, Marco Scutaro.
