Sure this team is good but they are not great. Get us at least a LF because Gomes isnt the answer there my friend. Get off your thumbs and do your job.

    We play 3 more games than the Pirates last year.
    We played in the weakest division in baseball.
    Our best pitcher is a set-up guy who we still don't know if he can be a starting pitcher.
    No definitive lead-off hitter.
    Closer is shaky.

    There are simply too many question marks on this team to say it's a WS contender.

    Agreed. Greinke's anxiety questions really scare me if i was trading some top prospects for him.

    We won the division, the Pirates finished last
    Our best pitcher is Johnny Cueto, followed by Bronson, with Leake and Wood right on their tail, please wake up.
    When have we had a definitive lead off hitter? what is wrong with Brandon?
    How is the closer shaky?

    What team were you watching last season?

    I agree with you on Everything but...

    Cordero as Closer is Shaky. That is in the stats.

    Where did all that pitching get them last year? Their overall record wasn't that much better then the Reds....
    Well it did get them in to the LCS. I guess that's nothing though. The NL east is also a tough division to go through considering that the Braves were the wild card team from the NL this year.

    Hondo, I might be out of line here but Ryan Franklin might be a more stable closer than Cordero right now.
