I've been a little surprised how optimistic the fans have been here in Baltimore with the offseason moves the O's have made. Mark Reynolds hits home runs but bats around .200 and leads the league in strikeouts. There must be a good reason why the Rangers chose not to resign Vladdy G. Derrick Lee is old and his wrist injury is a major concern. B-Rob has disc issues in his back. This was reported last season and anyone who knows anything about disk issues knows that this is not something that goes away. The pitching is still suspect. At best I think the O's could finish in 4th in the A.L.
