I don't think this team is really all that talented. I do think the added depth makes a huge amount of sense though. I am grateful that at least the team is doing what it said it would do versus signing this name or that and crossing their fingers.
But if you need positives there are a few (sort of)
I don't see any debacle at any position like SS as there was in 2008
I don't see a completely futile rotation like there was in 2009
I can't think of a Garret Atkins type signing as in 2010
We aren't being misled as I think we were regarding Brian Roberts
Yeah, it seems the bar is pretty low. That's Andy McPhail's legacy in Baltimore. Shame isn't it.
