Call me crazy--but I'm worried!

For starters, Soriano was not running well going down to first in yesterday's game. Hill has been unimpressive--Fukudome will eventually round into shape, but for right now I see Jacque Jones, only with a better arm and less power (and better OBP)....

I watched the interview with Lou and he kept saying how athletic his Red team was the year they won. DLee is now reduced to only an average base runner...Ramirez will never be a good base runner--Pie is fast, but undisciplined/refined...DeRosa is 100% ball player, but an average base runner at best...Soto is lead footed..Theriot is the one bright spot on the base paths--along with probably Dome.

If the season started today--I'd have to pick the Brewers to take the division. They have athleticism pretty much at every position--their bullpen can't hold up to ours, but I'm not entirely sure their starters aren't just as good..especially if Sheets can win about 14 for a change.

Does anyone really think Lilly can repeat what he did last year? Will Hill get better, or will he come back to earth?

I don't think we have enough; we need Roberts--and I also think we could really use Byrd. Without one or both, we won't win this division.

If anyone knows my mom's #--please call her and ask if she can talk me in off this ledge.
