I think that the pitching is certainly better than 2005, and even if we falter we have a couple arms in the minors that can shore up the rotation. That's nice.
Our lineup is a lot younger, so that's good. I'm concerned that Reimold has a spine problem though, I was counting on him for 25 homeruns.
Though the fact that our biggest bat his terrible is scary, and the whole Nick Johnson situation is concerning.
We don't really have anyone in AAA to come to our rescue for position players. If you remember that was the case in 2005 when we had to call up...Jeff Fiorentino...
This team isn't going to have 4-32 collapse or anything like that.
But if we keep this up for a few more weeks I think the front office needs to start making some moves for some AAAA players to store in the minors for depth.
