They were 2nd in the NL in runs scored, only 5 behind StL. A bat behind Bonds would help because Snow likely won't have another season like that, but they need help in the rotation. If only they didn't waste so much money on Vizquel they could have landed one of those $7M pitchers. Lieber would be my choice. Alas, they did sign Vizquel, so I don't think they have much more of a chance than last year (although Benitez was a great signing).
