I'm a realist as anyone here, and I've yet allowed myself to get too excited so far, especially after last year, but I think they need to make the playoffs. With the NL as weak as it has been thus far, I think they need to take advantage this year. Next year, who knows what teams go out and get the big name players. We don't have Puljols or Fielder in the NL, not to mention our division anymore. I think we need to take advantage of that before these teams re-tool.
