It's possible with what's swirling around. Means and the kids who came up. Without sifting turds from the free agent piles. 3 good starters and any offense at all puts you at .500. Santander, Mountcastle and Mancicni. A little Hays. Hell, just pass up the opportunity to make a dozen unforced stupid mistakes on the bases. Might be a fun .500. We have all those killer pitchers percolating in the minors. A whole staff worth.

Maybe he who shall not be mentioned, but eats kippers, will put in an appearance. Batting fourth, playing by himself, number no number, Kierston Keerstag. Great souvenir jersey. We rode through the draft on a prospect with no name. And his record, an invisible shame.

The PR people have bobbleheads for Palmer, and I swear, the oriole bird. So you know what they're thinking. Free beer night.

I think they will stink again in 2021. Weak sticks at ss, second base and questionable at third base. I'm not really expecting Adley to make a big impact next year. Our catching situation sucks. Severino is not consistent and his defense below par. Cisco sucks. Who's on first? The outfield looks decent, but probably just a little better than average. We will see about the rotation, but I don't have high hopes for them next year. The bullpen will probably be below average. I like Brandon Hyde, but as they say, you can't make chicken salad out of chicken sheet.

That's my alternative prediction.

They have a couple of borderline ML-level hitting infielders and maybe one w/come thru. But I see hitting weakness in the infield, too.Pitching c/b real good, but even if it is, it's probably wasted because of weak bats.Sevy w/b a catching all star if they didn't play the final month of seasons.

I don't see Rutchsman or Y. Diaz doing anything this year.

Boy, you sure don't like the Viking guy.

I only like the rape, pillage and plunder vikes. Invisible ones better come for free. This one is WORSE than Davis. I never thought those words would pass my keyboard.

The big question is: do we have 3 really good starters in our system BB?

BTW, what about all those international signings from a couple of years ago? Anyone in the system jet?

Kremer, Akin and Zimmerman debuted last year. Means is here. Gives us a shot at 3.
