Usually I'm pretty optimistic about our teams, but this lineup looks like a built loser from the start.
Up to this point this has been one of the most disappointing offseasons I can remember...hopefully there is a plan to actually improve this team because they sure as hell haven't done anything yet. Adding Keppinger but losing AJ does nothing for the lineup. The bullpen hasn't been addressed at all. Or the bench other than Wise who is serviceable I guess. Yikes. Please make it better Hahn.
