    They also start the season with Seagar, Hart and Almonte hitting below the Mendoza Line. Luckily Cano, Ackley, Smoak, Miller, Romero and Saunders know what to do with the bat. The bullpen is unnecessarily weak without Leone and Smith. The rotation is an enigma after Felix, we should get a better idea about it in a week. They should do better than last season on the strength of the offense and a rotation that will be better if Kuma comes back close to his performance last year. (I get the games at the same times here in England, about 4 to 8 a month on MLB-TV. At least there are no blackouts.
