We all have a tendency to think we have it all figured out… that we know it all. That is all well and good, but the bottom line is: We Don’t Know What We Don’t Know! I might add that there is no way we can know what we don’t know. What don’t we know? Here are but a few things:
- Will Billingsley and Lilly be relevant in 2013 or injured? – These are the BIG Questions.
- Uribe?What? – Could Big Mac help him?
- Will Kenley Jansen recover 100%. He has closers stuff.
- Will Javy Guerra ever return to the pitcher he once was? Almost closers stuff…
- Will Adrian Gonzalez again put up MVP numbers? Adrian is the reason the Dodgers took Crawford and Beckett.
- Can Mark Ellis ever hit a right-hander? If he could hit .260 against RH and .280 against LH pitching, he would be a stud.
- Is Dee Gordon a gifted offensive player? We know he has no glove, but can he make a difference offensively?
- Will the Dodgers trade for a 3B or sign a free agent? Wright, Headley, Olt or Youkilis?
- Will the Dodgers sign two free agent pitchers? Odds are Greinke and Kuroda will be Dodgers.
- How much difference will Mark McGwire make with the Dodger hitters? I think it might be a whole lot!
- Will the 4th OF really be a starter-type player? B.J. Upton, Cody Ross, Shane Victorino – one of them will be the one.
- Will some pheonem make the team? – Puig, Pederson, Ames, Withrow, Lee or someone else? Who knows?
- Is Ryu really Mark Buehrle? – Will Boras guarantee that? If so, I’m all in. I suspect he’s not… not yet anyway!
- Could Andre Ethier really be traded? On one hand, I think not – on the other hand, I think so.
There you go. We don’t know what we don’t know… at least I don’t… and I won’t even mention Carl Crawford in fear of starting a war of words!
