Los Angeles Angels over Chicago White Sox

Last season the Angels were the best team in baseball when they met the hottest team in baseball. This time around, expect the Angels to finally get some return on the contracts they signed Josh Hamilton and Albert Pujols to. The Angels should again be led by Mike Trout on offense, and the pitching will be there. Chicago has done a ton this offseason, and they look like a young group supplemented by solid veterans. Samardzija gives them another strong option with Chris Sale and Jose Quintana at the top of the rotation. Carlos Rodon will probably factor in at some point, and the White Sox should score plenty of runs.
