Injuries are the key. No depth and no $ to get a bigtime replacement if critical injury occurs. The realities of being a small-market team.
All.that being said, I really like this team and watching the young guys put it together.
People forget, Choo and Brantley missed a lot of games with wrist injuries last year, if they avoid injuries we are solid in the out field.
Damon is starting to do what Damon does, slap hits, add some speed on the bases, and the occassional home run. Damon missed all spring ball, he is coming on now. If Cleveland signed him next year and told Sizemore bye bye, I would be happy with one more year of Damon, he brings veteran presence.
Hafner has to stay healthy, for goodness sakes all he does is DH.
Big key, Santana has to get his batting average up like we know he can.
Masterson is coming on as of late as is Jiminez, pitching might be the best in the AL Central.
Great defense up the middle of the diamond and real good team speed.
If we come off this 10 game road trip like 6-4, we are in good shape.
Good stuff Creel. I like your breakdown. I'm on board with getting rid of Duncan, he's absolutely useless. Provides nothing. I agree Quentin, Soriano, Francouer or even Manny could give this team a nice boost and jolt to the lineup not to mention a healthy Hafner and Sizemore.
This offense reminds me of......last years offense. Lets hope Sizemore and Hafner can hurry back and save the offense (sarcasm).
