2001 Baseball Scouting Reports


     
The more things change, the more they stay the same. At least in Major League Baseball. The Yankees have won four of the last five World Series, and -- sorry to ruin the suspense -- we think they will add another ring this October. For complete scouting reports on all 30 clubs, scroll down and click on a team name. Plus, check out our predicted order of finish in each division and how we think the playoffs will unfold.  March 26, 2001 cover
