I don't see how this team's starting pitching holds up for 162 games, but they can hit and the bullpen might actually surprise. (Parker looks like a find and Bedrosian is the real deal.)

Good start but you can't really read too much so early in the season. Baseball is pretty unpredictable compared to something like the NBA so anything can happen.

They made the right moves in surrounding Trout offensively. But their starting pitching is abysmal. Richards is never healthy anymore. Two of their starters have 7+ ERA in Shoemaker and Skaggs, two guys they are relying heavily on. The rest is a potpourri of cheap cast-offs (ironically mostly Dodger castoffs). Basically their formula is pray the starters don't completely (bleep) the bed and only leave a few lamb droppings that the offense will have to be relied on to clean up.
