Team Outlooks for Season 13

81-81 .500 1st in NL WEST
5YR. Trend  442-368 .545

Arizona has been at the top of the NL West three out of the last five years.  A poor .500 record was enough last season to take the division and GM bretrogers looks to improve on that mark. The pitching staff took a big hit when FA Trenidad Bennet (17-9 3.79) was allowed to leave.  Dick Pierce (8-8 4.62) must now step up to lead a pitching staff that includes Edgar Lugo (10-11 4.90) and Bobby Marshall (9-8 5.26). With a team ERA of 5.26 last season new PC Ryan Belhorn must squeeze juice from an almost dry lemon.

On the offensive side Rigo Figureoa ( .266 48 112) and Frank Cornelius (.280 37 90) have got to carry the burden of run producing once again this season.  If Candy Paronto can get on base consistently (39 SB) then maybe the plan of long ball run producing can work.
