Classic Devil Rays, expect them to lose 100+ this season with the turd of a 25-man roster they have.
Yeah. They just need to get someone like, say, TINO MARTINEZ
, in there again.
Sorry. Low blow. Judges deducted two points.
Similar deal with the Pirates. They remind me more of the teams from 2000-2009. A whole lot of hoping and "well, if this guy has a breakthrough career year... and so does this guy...and the other 23..." I'm expecting about 75 wins, tops.
They picked up Corey Dickerson, last week, but it's only a one-year deal and will have no real long-term significance to either player or team. His salary for the year is only about $1 million less than what they were expected to pay McCutchen. At the end of the year, Dickerson will probably walk away from the Pirates (or he gets dealt in July, if he has a good year). So yeah, it's Reggie Sanders in 2003 or Jeromy Burnitz in 2006.
Almost tempted to get back on the RockiesWagon for the year.
