We've all been bouncing off the walls this off-season as other NL East teams have lit up the headlines with moves while we sat silent. In thinking about why we were so silent, you gotta think Wren at some point took a peak at what some of his players did in 2010. Or, more specifically, what Heyward, Uggla and Prado did:
Heyward - .277, 18 HR, 72 RBI
Uggla - .287, 33 HR, 105 RBI
Prado - .307, 15 HR, 66 RBI
Is it that outrageous to expect two of these three to rebound to their 2010 level? No. And expecting one is a certainty. Three feels optimistic, but considering the talent of these three, certainly possible. And I didn't even bother to include McCann and his 2011 late swoon in this.
Throw in a full season of Bourn and, all in all, it's a given that our offense will be better this year than last. Just sayin'
