I figured the defense would be bad going into this season with Melky in LF and the downgrade from Escobar to Reyes (defensively). But the starting pitching was supposed to be better.
I really expected Johnson to have a great year (contract year). And I was hoping Ricky would bounce back.
My other beef is second base. Kelly Johnson (or Aaron Hill) would look pretty good now.
