In response to georom4's comment:
What is the over under on games played by napoli in 2013
what say you
Nap should give us exactly what Salty did last season "25 plus HR's" but with a much higher OBP from at least one side of the plate and less IF defense.
So here is where we really stand presently ....
#1 Weaker at 1B
#2 Dempster and Lackey deeper at SP, whatever that ends up meaning
#3 Better defensively at C with Ross which could help our ERA
#4 No better off as a team regarding OBP unless we platoon guys perfectly while guys like Ells and Pede rebound.
#5 Better clubhouse chemistry
#6 A well liked manager who used to be a pitching coach which could be a plus
#7 Maybe better at SS if Drew can have a career year which is possible
#8 Better overall in the pen
#9 Insurance for Ells in Victorino
#10 A still very uncertain OF
I still say 88 wins at best with good health and no further upgrades. A little help from the unexpected would also be nice.
