Where do I say they make the playoffs? I say challenge for it. That's all.
I think they'll be competitive. I like Alston backing up Harris, I like what Chris Douglas Roberts brings, I like Battie and Najera providing some depth and toughness off the bench and maybe Yi takes it up a notch.
If anything they're missing scoring power with the departure of VC but that void could be filled if Lopez takes a step forward in his development. Again, I see them challenging for a position. They could wind up 11th though.
