isnt it obvious they were a complete fluke last season ?? their lineup is grossly overated. it wasnt even good last year. everyone goes nuts because guys like thames, monroe and inge hit 20 homeruns but their obp's were all terrible. and these were supposedly career years from these guys and they werent even that good. and just adding sheffield doesnt make them this juggernaut. hes not bonds circa 00-04.
plus kenny rogers will not have another very good season. and todd jones wont either. so basically they have 3 good young starters and zumaya. this is some great team ?? i dont even think they make the postseason let slone win the world series.
and the worst part is we were supposed to avoid all this nonsense of some new dynasty which we get every year when these fluke teams like the marlins and chi sox win the ws because the cardinals beat the tigers. but instead everyone is acting like the tigers won the ws last year.
