Verducci thinks it's worth a mention. He does rank us last out of his four possible breakout teams, and does note that we have no actual chance being in the AL East (wait, what division were the 2008 Rays in?), but still, it's interesting to see a national writer noticing that Andy just might be doing it right.
I don't honestly think we're going to make the playoffs in 2009 or anything, but I thought that Verducci's notes about improving on Runs Allowed, and Pythag records, were interesting to note. It at least makes me start to think about 2010 rather than 2011.
