By RON POLLACK
A Daily Sports Analysis
With the exception of some new faces,
little seems to have changed in the
American League West from last
season.
The California Angels will once again
prove that money can't buy a cham-
pionship. The Chicago White Sox will
play tight defense about as often as a
politician speaks out against gover-
nmental corruption and really means
it. Oakland manager Billy Martin will
no doubt be involved in some sort of
controversy. Seattle will be out of the
running by the All-Star game. And the
Kansas City Royals will run away with
the division.

West: I
achieved some long-sought respect las
season, beating the New York Yankee:
in the playoffs.
Although the AL West had easily the
most boring division race last year, it
did supply the best individual perfor-
mance in the person of George Brett
(.390). Another terror at the plate was
outfielder Willie Wilson. Wilson batted
.326 and stole 79 bases, but itremains to
be seen whether he can rebound from
his horrendous World Series perfor-
mance.
Manning the outfield along with
Wilson are Amos Otis (.251) and Clint
Hurdle (.294). The designated hitter
spot proved to be a productive one as
Hal McRae hit .297 and knocked in 83
runs.
The starting rotation for Kansas City
is not one of their strengths, as beyond
Dennis Leonard (20-11) and Larry Gura
(18-10), the starters are mediocre at
best in the persons of Rich Gale (13-9,
3.92 ERA) and Paul Splittorff (14-11,
4.15). However, the Royals possess one
of baseball's best relievers in Dan
Quisenberry (33 saves).
OAKLAND-Oakland's nickname,
the A's, should stand for the grade
given to manager Billy Martin, rather
than the Athletics. In one season, Mar-

royal
t tin took Oakland from the bottom
s division to a surprising second
finish.
The A's won last season usin
steal, hit-and-run and squeeze bu
overcome a lack of power. An
shortcoming of the A's was
relievers, who resulted in the to
starters being forced to finish an
dinate amount of games. The sta
are Mike Norris (22-9, 2.54 ERA),
Langford (19-12, 3.26), Matt K
(16-13, 2.92), Steve McCatty andI
Kingman.
THE A'S OUTFIELD of Rickey
derson, Dwayne Murphy and Ton
mas is quite imposing. Hendersor
ted .303 and stole 100 bases, Arm
35 home runs and drove in 109
while Murphy won a Gold Glove.

CHICAGO
WHITE SOX
CHICAGO-The White Sox
clearly the West's most impr
team. Under former owner Bill V
money was limited and the prosper
signing highly-regarded players
slim. But now, as a result of an infl
money from a new owner, the I
Sox have signed free agents
LeFlore and Carlton Fisk in additi
obtaining Greg Luzinski
Philadelphia for cash.
With Fisk as the receiver, an ali
talented pitching staff of Britt B
Rich Dotson, Steve Trout and
Baumgarten should improve. Th
bullpen is also a source of strengti
chored by Ed Farmer (30 saves).
Joining LeFlore in the outfield w
Chet Lemon (.292) and Harold Bi
(.255). Chicago's inconsistent ir
will be bolstered by' newcomer'
Bernazard at second base.

iy Ar- solation the Angels can take from last
n bat- year's disastrous 65-95 collapse is that
as hit things seemingly can't get worse this
runs year.
Returning from injury will be out-
fielders Dan Ford and Don Baylor, the
league's MVP two seasons ago. Both of
California's catchers, Brian Downing
and Dave Skaggs, will also be back.
The Angels will also be improved
because of the acquisition of outfielder
Fred Lynn from Boston and shortstop
Rick Burleson from Boston. Joining
Burleson in the infield will be Rod
Carew at first, Bobby Grich at second
and Butch Hobson at third.

MINNESOTA-Despite losing a
number of its stars to free agency over
the past few years, the Twins will still
field a respectable team.
Third baseman John Castino (.302),
shortstop Roy Smalley (.278), second
baseman Rob Wilfong (.248) and either
Ron Jackson (.265) or newly acquired
Mickey Hatcher (.226) make up one of
the best infields in the league.
The trade sending Ken Landreaux
(.281) to Los Angeles for Hatcher
caused the Twins' outfield to become a
question mark. Minnesota's starting
pitching rotation of Jerry Koosman,
Darrell Jackson, Roger Erickson and
Pete Redfern is also questionable at
best.

TEXA
TEXAS-Every season, the Rangers
appear to have enough talent to
challenge for division honors, and
every year they finish far out of first.
The strong points of Texas are the
bats of Mickey Rivers (.333), Buddy
Bell (.329), Al Oliver (.319) and Jim
Sundberg (.273). However, it seems
unlikely that they can compensate for
the team's pitching staff, which had a
team ERA of 4.02. Jim Kern was the
team's top reliever in 1979, but had a
horrendous year last season. If he
returns to his old form, he and Danny
Darwin (13-4, 2.62) could make up an
impressive tandem.

MARINERS
SEATTLE-Last year the Mariners
finished third to last in the American
League in pitching. The only positive
thing about this statistic is that it was
better than where the team finished in
hitting-last. The only top-notch hitter
the Mariners have is Bruce Bochte
(.300).
Jeff Burroughs and Richie Zisk were
added in the off season, but this won't
change the fact that Maury Wills initial
year as the Mariners' manager will be
a fruitless one.
