715, 714, 750, 689

That's the number of runs scored by the DRays offense in each season 2003-2006. They are that bad. That 750 runs in 2005 was a 12th place finish which was actually very respectable - they haven't finished out of the bottom 10 in the other 3 seasons.

I'm gonna disagree with the post earlier about Cantu. He had a .300 ish average in the season before his breakout, so I don't think it was a complete fluke. I think he'll be a contributing and pretty solid 2 bagger option. That said, Delmon should be at the top of the order and someone should get on him about taking pitches, anything to avoid him turning out to be the next Jeff Francouer in terms of BB:K ratio. I mean it's important to be able to draw a walk as a major league hitter if he'd like to avoid major slumps. Also, BJ Upton is a fine hitter, but he's not DH material, and he's not fielder material as of yet, and by fielder I mean any position. The D-rays are going to try him just about everywhere, but keep in mind that he is consider a fine hitter as a middle infielder, and that means he needs to be a solid fielder, you can't hide a poor infielder at shortstop, or second, ask Todd Walker. I am intrigued by the fact he'll be playing multiple positions to get AB's cause I'm hoping for multiple position eligibility in the mold of Ryan Freel.

he's been hitting cleanup the last few games and swiping some bags from there. his avg is back up over .300. the more i see him play the more i think he could be in for an amazingly good rookie season
