If either of those things don't happen, it's a 70ish win season. With them healthy, maybe a .500 team.
I don't know, I think they're going to surprise. For one, they weren't as bad as their record last year. Second, there's been quite a bit of improvement already, simply from getting Gutierrez, Chavez, Branyan/Shelton, and Griffey. I really think they're a 75-78 true talent win team right now, and if Felix breaks out and Bedard stays healthy, you could very well be looking at contention. The Angels and A's are not very good either.
