Why are expectations so low?
So we lost Kubel and Cuddyer. Be we gained Willingham. If Joe and Justin can be/stay healthy. Zumaya, Perkins, and a healthy Capps holding down the bullpen, and name a single starter who you think won't do better than they did last year? Valencia should rebound from his sophomore slump, Span is reporting with good health.
I see a team this year that should be much much better than last if we can stay reasonably healthy.
Who knows, if we are within striking distance of the Tigers in July maybe Terry Ryan will fill a need or two at the deadline and we can make a run at the division!
I prefer to look at things a bit more optimistically.
I dunno maybe its just that Spring Training feeling that every fan has about his team this time of year, but I see a chance at a good year.
