That wouldn't be doing a jig if we had what the Braves have right now.
But the games still have to be played, things like this have a tendency to backfire. The Marlins of last year come to mind, how many rings have the Phillies won since they put together the dream rotation?
Should be a fun season, especially if they fall on their faces.
The Braves rotation is suspect to me. Not only is it weaker but also its depth is a major question mark. >>>>
mets rotation is also suspect and depth isnt that good either.
Yeah but their bullpen WAS lights out!>>>
braves have had a top 3 bullpen 3 years in a row. maybe this will be the year they fall down a couple spots. maybe not.
>>mets rotation is also suspect and depth isnt that good either.<<
I think we have better depth for the short term.
"Hey, you never know..."
So let's excuse the FO from not fielding a major league team and having a AAA outfield while raising ticket prices and decimating the talent level of the team.
You guys crack me up. It's like saying, well there are many houses with fire hazards that don't catch on fire, so why should I rid my house of fire hazards. Or "I may hit the lottery, so why bother trying to get a job?". OF COURSE there is a chance that with a terrible roster on paper, a team could overachieve, or with a great roster on paper, a team could flop. OF COURSE those things have happened at times, and anyone could list examples. That does not in any way mean a FO has an excuse for not putting the best team possible on the field. A better roster increases the PROBABILITY of the team's success. That is the job of the FO. You can ALWAYS say, about ANY endeavor, well things might not break my way even if I try hard, so I am not going to try. That is called copping out. Kind of what the Mets did on this season.
