Last year Austin Jackson was our only base stealing option for most of the year. We now have added Davis, Kinsler, Iglesias and Lombardozzi. Last year we had 6 players with 20 HR potential (not that they would all hit 20): Cabrera, Fielder, Avila, Martinez, Hunter, and Jackson. We lost Fielder but have added Kinsler and Castellanos as players with the potential to hit 20 homeruns. A healthy Cabrera could hit 40 homeruns this year. I believe we have not only added speed, but the potential to hit more homeruns also. Our defense is much improved over last year. Smyly has the potential to put up better stats than even Fister did. The bullpen is starting to take shape (still could use at least one more reliable arm, but overall I believe this years team already has a better upside than last years team.

Thanks for reading, Arville. I don't believe Dombrowski is quite done. We'll have to wait and see.
