It's not a stretch they could break the all time record for victories in the regular season. The only "hole" is that they've got a phenom flame throwing youngster primed to be their closer. And to be perfectly honest, there isn't a reliever on our roster I wouldn't trade straight up for him.

If we're a contender, its for the wild card only. Unless we seriously address our lineup issues. Like by signing Michael Bourne, for starters.
Wow. They would need to improve 29 games...
