DateQuestionAnswer
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your (way too) early pick for most improved team in 2010 is ____. Thanks for the chat, Jay.
(mattymatty2000 from philly, pa)
Mariners. The addition of Lee to a staff whose #2 starter was... Ryan Rowland-Smith? is huge, and nabbing Figgins while subtracting him from their chief rivals was big as well. They've still got work to do in a few other places, but that's a good start.

Boston adding Lackey and Cameron is also prety nifty. (Jay Jaffe)
