They'll win if: their rotation stays healthy, as their first four starters (Jered Weaver, Dan Haren, C.J. Wilson and Ervin Santana) may rival the Giants for the best staff in the majors. Even if their pitching doesn't meet expectations, Albert Pujols (pictured) has put a team on his back before.
They'll lose if: Pujols struggles in his first year in the American League. They might also lose if closer Jordan Walden suffers a sophomore slump.
