Joe Henderson of the Tampa Tribune published a column today which can only be described as panic. Yes, the D-Rays did not look good on opening day, but we all knew this team had problems. There is still not enough power. The defense will be shaky at times. The rotation is young and not very deep. And when your bullpen includes TWO non-roster invitees, it’s not going to be very good. This team will hit. But they will lose a lot of games 9-6. Nobody thought this team was winning the World Series this season…oh wait…somebody did. Somebody should tell Joe Henderson not to believe everything he reads.
