What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?

7-4 is a good start, and you know what they say: "You can't win your division in April, but you can certainly lose it"; just ask the Angels last year, and probably this year, too.
Anyway, we have two more in SEA.

That's only going to take us to May 13th -- which is exactly one month from today -- spanning a total of 26 games. I'm not implying we need to have X_ number of wins and X_ number of losses to justify doing "well" over this stretch; I'm simply saying we need to do well, because better teams like Detroit and Tampa and Oakland and New York are always lurking on the horizon.
If you look at the first-half schedule on ESPN or the team site, you'll notice that the majority of teams we are playing are not particularly scary. With Jered Weaver down for a month (or month and a half), I just can't picture their offense scoring THAT many runs to compensate for an average bullpen and well-below average starting rotation.
Two weeks into the season, and it already looks like Oakland vs. Texas Part II.
With Boston and the White Sox being the only "good" teams on that list I don't see any reason not to win 75% of those games.
it's a good thing to because I am worried about Berkman's knees and Harry's back oh yeah and MLB just bought the records from Biogenesis.
Joe--did you just say the bio word........
The Rangers could very well win 15-18 games during that stretch. Not saying it will happen, but the only teams on paper that will give the Rangers trouble are the Red Sox and White Sox. But then again, this is baseball and anything can happen and the Rangers could lose 15 of those games as well, but I don't see that happening.
8-4 is actually an amazing start when you think that it is a .667 winning percentage. Over a full season that would be a record of 108-54.....
