      On the surface, this is about as good a start as could be hoped for.

      On the other hand, they’ve gotten an awful lot of help from the other team on many of these rallies.

      On the other other hand, they haven’t hit well with RISP at all, and if that improves, they won’t need the other teams’ help as much.

      On the other other other hand, they haven’t hit with RISP for several years now.

      ==============================================

      What does it all mean?

      Still no true ace starter.
      Still no true #3-4 hitter to be the center of the offense, the Reggie/David Ortiz guy who takes the pressure off of the other hitters. Holliday could be that guy if he were 27, or even 31, instead of 37.

      I don’t see any reason to change my pre-season prediction (84-88 wins, fighting for a wild card).

      Yet.
