I know the season already started and I may be too late, but based on what I've seen so far I will say:
I was going to say 81-81 last week, but I'll cheat since they already have a loss. I'll also make a bold prediction (I hope I'm wrong) and say that they never will make .500 once this year. I believe they start slow and heat up in the summer, but never quite get to .500.
Boone will fired by the end of May.
Sorry for the doom and gloom. Just being realistic. All of the possible weaknesses of this team were displayed today.
Love to see this offense heat up before July when the season is over, but I've seen weak situational and clutch hitting for 2+ years now. Just like last year, we seem to have very "lazy" hitters. I know that is a weird word for it, but it the only word that describes the weak looking swings resulting in dribblers to 2B I have seen.
I really hope I'm wrong and I'll be the first to call myself out on it if I am, but 80-82 looks realistic.
But who am I to predict. I picked Arizona in my Redzone bracket.
