    Chris Young definetly needs to have a breakout season. That Diamondbacks pitching needs some run support.

      Agreed, along with Stephen Drew and Webb bouncing back and Montero continuing to improve. Should be a fun team to watch.

        How are you and I the only two to comment on an Odds & Ends? Wowzers!

        I think Drew will be back to his 2007 form but my guy, is Edwin Jackson. I really think if Webb is healthy, Jackson and Haren will back him up to provide one of the best 1-2-3’s in Baseball.

          Yeah, they need a lot of things to go right of course but I’m very interested to see how things shake out for Arizona this year. Looking forward to them playing the Sox in interleague play too.

            Yeah thats going to be exciting. I think June 18-20th will be exciting. Manny’s return!

      Young has played about what he was expected to be, maybe even a little better, by the White Sox. No real surprises here.

      Yes, we do need Young to have a very good year. Personally I think he has a lot of upside and when he is on he can be a real threat. The Diamondbacks have a lot of hit-or-miss or unproven as starters type people in their lineup and back of the rotation, but if everything goes right, that 1-2-3 will do its part and the DBacks could be back in the postseason

    I wish the Mets would sign Mateo. He’d make F-Mart more expendable so he could possibly be dealt for some pitching mid season if the Mets are contending.

    Keys are Webb’s health, Reynolds/Upton repeating success, Young/Kennedy/Jackson/Drew live up to potential, Montero continues to provide some power, LaRoche gets his 20 HR and Kelly Johnson keeps a decent average. The biggest question mark is Billy Buckner, I really wish theyd bring in someone like Benson or Milton to come in and give him at least a push in camp. Don’t get me wrong neither of them are really viable but I’d love see Buckner prove himself.
