How is your baseball team looking?

Well, it's almost that time of year again! How do you think your favorite/hometown team will do?
I am hesitant to place an over/under on the amount of Pirates' wins but if pressed (I did start this thread) I am going to say 88 wins and no playoff appearance as St. Louis wins the division and the Bucs just miss a wild card spot. I imagine I will be satisfied with two winning seasons in a row after so much suffering.
So, what are your realistic expectations for your team?

    optimisitc - sox pitching is solid, bullpen should be strong

    relying on some young guys on the left side of the infield.......they've looked good this spring

    sizemore's spring has been a pleasant surprise


    east is always unpredictable - but 92-95 wins is more than reasonable

    I am just hoping more wins than broken hips for the Yankees.

    If the Yankees stay healthy a playoff spot is a reasonable expectation, but that's a big IF.

    In Colorado, just hoping The Rockies don't get lapped (as in twice as many wins) by the Dodgers, consistent with the difference in payrolls.

    +1. I missed out on the kid first ball game last year due to business travel...grumble grumble... they really liked it and have been asking when we can go back.

    Coors Field is nice! Went and saw them play SD last August and ponied up for really good seats. Nice stadium, great and friendly crowd, very good beer being sold in the concourses!

    Not sure, and today, dad said not so good.

    I'm going to try for one home game with dad and Judy (his wife).

    It's going to be feast or famine this year.

    After that beating it might be a very long season.

    Opening Day(s) is the suck. I hate how it is done now. If they're going to play elsewhere it should be preseason games.

    Totally agree. It's like baseball is taking a page from Goodell's playbook: How to kill the golden goose through overexposure.
