Low Expectations a Good Thing

3 Years Ago: Picked to finish 11th in the Big East, finished in 4th

2 Years Ago: Picked to finish in 9th, finished in 2nd

Last Year: Picked to finish in 4th, finished in 10t

We finish the opposite of what is predicted.  I welcome the low expectations for this years squad with open arms.

The loss of Scott Martin will hurt a lot.  But this is an underdog team, there is no question about it.  The thought of that makes this season so much more exciting.

OFF TOPIC: Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays seem to be going as strong as ever, well at least my favorite Ray fan (and his wife) seem to be going as strong as ever.  Another interesting sign was held up by the Ray's hometown hero last night and it read "Big Gun."  Sure it isn't as weird as such past signs like "Holy Cow" or as confusing as "A-Froid" but it was the context this one was used in.  This one was director to Rays superstar, BJ Upton.  BJ "Big Gun" Upton raised his average to the prestigious .243 mark and passed the glorious mark of 50 RBIs the other day by hitting for the cycle.  The Rays are calling this a historic moment.  Really?  Just last year you were the AL Champs and you already are going back to being this pathetic?
