I take the rankings with a grain of salt and here is why. When the team won last year, everyone assumes they will continue to win. If they suck, the same thing happens.
You have injuries, new players, surprises, and that is what makes baseball fun. Who ever heard of Castro until they brought him up and he was an impact player?
The pundits will predict the Cubs to suck until they don't. Get one or two kids to make the lineup and Lake to surprise and they could be .500. If you look at last year, they were terrible RISP, and had a ton of blown saves. The starting pitching kept them in most games until late in the year.
A team can go 71-91 and be really awful. If they can win 10 more games that are at .500. Cut the blown saves in half or a couple key hits with RISP and it is possible.
While I am a homer.....I also know that when things start to roll and players gain confidence it become a whole different story. They start playing to win as opposed to not to lose.
I don't expect them to contend for the playoffs but it would not surprise me if they were close to .500.
PS: Welcome to the message board. Some really gold folks here and we all learn from each other.
