    I don't know; I see a collection of loose pieces put together without much of an overall plan. I'll be surprised if they contend past the All-Star break, if they last that long.

    The Dbacks might now be as bad as some think. They actually have a bit of talent. Goldschmidt is only 25 and hit 20 Hrs last season in his first full season. I can see him getting getting close to 30 this year if he continues to progress as he is expected. Kubel his 30 last year...Will he do it again? well he is more than capable. Hill hit 26 last year, and has only hit 30 hrs once in his career. I see 25 being his average. Montero has been playing with arizona since 06, but the past two seasons has taken then everyday role behind the plate. Hitting .280+ and 85 rbi+ in those two seasons. I dont see a sure lock at any player hitting 30 hrs, but the lineup is still a pretty good lineup. If their pitchers perform well, I dont think this offense will have too much trouble. But having to compete with the Dodgers and Giants they are still a few years away but moving in the right direction

    Kubel, Hill and Prado, with Prado maybe in the high 20's.

    Just my opinion, but yeah, I see that happening. I also see Adam Eaton on base a ton for the middle of the order. Ross is the weak link IMO, and I bet he doesn't keep the starting RF job long.

    Re: Tony Campana DFA'd

    Again, this is just my opinion. Prado prolly won't, he's never been the power guy i for some reason though he was, but he'll have a fixed position for the first time in a long time, that'll help. Paul Goldschmidt is a possible high 20's low 30's guy. hit 20 last year. Montero will hit between 15-20. I see a lot of .830+ OPS guys on this team with some good OBP's they were exactly a .500 team last year and I think the offense is better this year even without Upton.

    Well, the DBacks and their 36M think the 2012 Hill is the real one. I do too.

    Hey it is just my opinion, but I like the direction and the personnel. I think Eaton can be a star. It is a team strong up the middle with a hole in RF and some question marks in the rotation. But those question marks aren't talent based like the reds for most of last decade, but of health. They seem like a fun team to follow.

    Those must be some MIGHTY BIG ballparks.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
