The good news...? We've been in games. It's never nice losing but last year it was almost unbearable the way they lost.
There are pieces to build on. Abreu, Sale, Garcia, Eaton, and Gillaspie.. plus there's an all-star shortstop that is going to be good for a little while yet... even Beckham could be a significant part.
We have a ton of money that will be available soon to spend on starters. I've always known that they aren't going to come from within the system and I'm fine with that. Bullpen? Crap shoot.
Finally, I think Hahn has a handle on things and that there are some pleasant surprises to come, possibly sooner than later.
