Yes, he's correct the team didn't make much in the way of player acquisitions. Also it is possible that Manny Machado
may experience some growing pains. However, the team's pitching was a strength because it's rotation was in a near constant state of change. Depth was a strength and will be again. The only thing he did get correct was Zach Britton
and Brian Matusz. Though he makes no mention of Jake Arrieta
or Chris Tillman, the two with the most potential. I suspect he read a brief rundown of last season's shortcomings and exhaled a quick article. I won't guess at which end of his body the article was expelled.
As for Dylan Bundy, he likely won't even see a September call up as he will needs to work on secondary pitches and build up his innings total. Last season because the team was in the thick of the playoff hunt the team disregarded service time issues. Unless it is in a similar position you won't see that this year.
Honest, if your an ESPN insider. The article is why I will never be one. If I am paying for any service it needs to serve a function. This article most definitely did not. My suggestion is save your money.
