The Big 12 should be an interesting league to follow in 2015. Although the conference was left out of the final four of the college football playoff last season, Baylor and TCU will be back in the mix once again in 2015.

AL East's Top Storylines to Watch in 2015

The American League East is completely up for grabs in 2015. For most teams in the East, scoring runs won’t be much of a problem, but the fact there is not one single, proven, ace in any team’s rotation is telling.

 

No team in the division can boast about either their benches or bullpens which could make for some high-scoring affairs throughout the summer.
