I said no baseball, but I can’t stand it anymore.
Posey- need to get back a goodly portion of his MIA 9 HR 31 RBI from 2012
Belt- can he fulfill his potential at AT&T? 2014 should go a long way in deciding that.
Scutaro- a major question mark, would have liked to see a utility infielder upgrade
Crawford- needs to hit LHers or Arias may platoon
Panda- lean, mean,hittin’ machine? Well, that’s the hope. Posey and Pablo need to be all they can be..
Pence- ink in 25-90.
Pagan – Coming back in September was a good move- we got to see the 2012 version
Morse- Pray for 2011, hope for 2012, or…can you spell P.L.A.T.O.O.N.?
Hector- don’t look now but Susac is in the rear view window and closing fast
Arias- hacker with no pop, but somehow has made himself valuable- versatilty and desire
Abreu- looks like he may hit
Blanco- more valuable than many think.
5th OFer- I have to think it will be Perez
MadBum- ready to make his CY run
Cain- need the second half guy
Timmy- sets out on a 2 year trek for the pot of gold
Hudson- teach your children well- and give us 12-14 wins while you’re at it
Vogie- well, how many lives does he have left? One will do.
Petit- should have the long relief job and ready if needed in the rotation
Kontos and Machi fight for one spot
Affeldt- swing man can pitch anywhere
Lopez- just the best loogie going
Casilla- looked to have his velocity back when he got off the DL
Hembree- needs a big spring or having options may bite him
Romo- I’m done doubting his stamina- good closer.
I only see one spot in doubt- one relief spot. Unless Sabes pulls a surprise, he’s already dealt the hand they’ll go with. Everybody is key- but I see Posey, Panda, and Morse as the guys who can make us sink or swim on offense, Timmy and Huddy on the pitching staff. This is a very “iffy” team- need a lot of the “ifs” to go our way.
Will “The Beast” be “The Man”?
