With the season a mere two weeks old and most team having just 7 games under their belts some statements can be made about how they look thus far. This small sample size however, may not reflect on the season's end.

Slow starters: The Boston Red Sox have come out of the gate slowly. For a team that was expected to struggle offensively, the main concern from them thus far has been there erratic starting pitching. Lefty Jon Lester, who I earlier predicted as a Cy Young favorite, has started of with an 0-1 record with a 7.20 ERA. Other slow starters include the Mariners and the Dodgers.

Hot out of the gate: No team has looked as dominant thus far as the Philadelphia Phillies. With strong starting pitching as well as a fluid offense and solid defense, the Phillies are off to their best start in recent memory at 6-1. Unlike the teams mentioned in slow starters, I do not expect the results to change for the Phillies. Expect them to easily win the NL East. Other teams seeing quick success include the Giants and the Tigers.
