What does the future hold in the AL West, short term and long term?
Who wins this division in '06? I think everyone is capable of making a run if things go the right way. Longer-term, I think all four clubs have the ability to be competitive. The Angels have a particularly rich farm system, but Oakland has shown the ability to recharge quickly and their own farms are hardly barren. Texas and Seattle are a bit more problematic, but none of these teams have truly dry systems, and the talent should continue to flow.
