About what we expected...a team that really isn't very good...but hey, it's baseball.
Starting pitching...about what we expected, pretty good. Greinke is not amazing, merely OK. No panic here. Concern about Gil Meche. Hopefully he will either be better, or give it up for a while.
Closer...Soria has had moments of shakiness, and moments of goodness. Ah, the life of any closer not named Nathan or Rivera.
Defense...Definitely more athletic. Ankiel has made a difference in the out field, and the infield seems tighter. On the other hand...there have been horrible lapses, too.
Hitting...surprisingly good in spots. And who really is that person with Gullien on the back of his jersey? Like speed on the bases, but please don't run us out of scoring chances!
Long Relief...well, a picture is worth a thousand words.
