    There sure figures to be a bunch of talent to be had this time next year. That's quite an impressive list....much moreso than this year.

    Plus, it seems like there's always a better crop of free agents next year every year, and a lot of them get re-signed or don't look as good or get hurt or retire by the time next year becomes this year.

    Averaged over 200 hits over the last 4 years.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
