  1. With numbers like this you would not think they would be one game over .500. They have had some timely hitting that won a few games.

    It will be interesting to see how this team develops during the season.

  2. My favorite part of Jim's week in reviews is seeing how the teams stand in the league. Would never have guessed a Brady team would be 8 out of 16 in stolen bases, but I guess that's what happens when you're 16th in OBP.
