If Dipoto Doesn't Make Any More Moves...

...If I'm not mistaken, this looks to be the 25-man Opening Day roster:

 

Lineup:

C Iannetta

1B Pujols

2B Kendrick

SS Aybar

3B Freese

LF Hamilton

CF Trout

RF Calhoun

DH Cron

 

Bench: Green, Perez, Cowgill, Navarro

 

Rotation: Weaver, Shoemaker, Wilson, Santiago, Tropeano, (eventually Richards)

 

Bullpen: Street, Smith, Jepsen, Rasmus, Ramos, Pestano, Salas, Morin, (also: LeBlanc, Alvarez, Bedrosian, etc)

 

How do you feel about that? Do you see 90+ wins again?

85-90 wins as it currently stands. The proper tweaks makes it a 93-95 win team IMO

 

They probably overachieved a bit last year but they're still good and will most likely make the playoffs. Couple solid moves to bolster the rotation can put them over the top

If Hamilton is heathy he could be a big producer at the plate next season.

Looks like Trout and Pujols will stay connected again next season ... it works.

I don't have a lot of confidence in Cron as our DH.

I think will see Richards pitching in April.

I think Wilson will be fine ... 10+ wins.

Aybar & Kendrick are essential to having a 90 win season.

This bullpen is ridiculously deep. Street, Smith, Jeppy, Rasmus, Salas, Ramos, Morin, Pestano, Bedrosian, Diaz, Herrera (even though he kinda sucks), Ruckinski, etc...

 

They probably won't bring back Grilli but they don't really need to. That's basically two entire bullpens right there.

85-90 wins? really?

 

Remember they lost Hamilton and Calhoun for months and Ibanez and Freese were hitting below .200, also they have one of the worst bullpen in the league........................

 

If most of the core players are health for most of the season, they should win more than 95 game next year.

Baseball is a lot like golf ... soon as you fix something in your game another thing breaks down.

the rotation still scares me. You're counting on Richards and Shoe being at least as good as they were last year, if not better. Both are young and could regress a bit - particularly Shoe. And everyone seems to be assuming Wlison will bounce back. Why? If he pitches like he did the second half last year, he'll be out of baseball before August.

Offensively, this team has no clean up hitter. If it's hanilton and he bounces back somewhat, great. If not, and let's face it the chances are not great, it's Kendrick? Who has very little power. A full season of that is a problem IMO. And Kendrys Morales isn't the answer.
