Robert Siegel looks forward to the upcoming major league baseball season with sportswriter Stefan Fatsis of The Wall Street Journal.

Fatsis points out that the ownership succession of the premier New York Yankees has been thrown up in the air by the divorce proceedings of Yankee owner George Steinbrenner's daughter.

On the field, Fatsis says he expects teams to be competitive - maintaining the trend away from consecutive World Series winners.
