    I don’t see many people agreeing with me but I’m calling a bounce back year for JP. The 2008 and 2009 JP may be gone for good but I see him returning to a reliable RP this year. A full ST and season will go a long way.

    I know Friedman loves to sit back and sign what’s left for cheap but come on, this team can’t play hard all season, get to the ALDS just to get knocked out AGAIN. Sign Beltran or trade for Konerko/Quientin and actually make this offense a force. I wouldn’t wanna pitch against this.

    Jennings LF
    Upton CF (playing for a contract)
    Longoria 3B
    Konerko DH
    Zobrist 2B

    Rizzo/Alonso/Trumbo/Morales 1B
    Rodriguez SS
    Molina C

    The ONLY major Leaguer I ever seen PASS another on base paths, was Longoria, but I think he was flying a little high that day…..esp. after they found the guys that stole his stash from spring training…
