If you were to compare them to a baseball team, they'd be kind of like the Marlins, IMO. They have an awful lot of young talent, and now some decent veteran players. They are going to be right on the brink of making the playoffs this year. If luck goes their way and no injuries, they should squeak in, but don't expect them to win more than 1 playoff series. When that young talent starts to get experience, probably within 2-3 years, they should go farther in the playoffs. They won't suck and get crushed every night this year, I'll tell you that.
