We won't compete in 2010...but in 2011, Pujols watch out!

 

4 days until the beginning of the season. The team is pretty much set unless there are some last minute trades
or waiver claims. Personally I believe this team has a playoff team based on POTENTIAL ALONE. Don't rush to
conclusions, I think 75 wins is realistic this year. 2011 and 2012 could be the beginning of a great
"5 year run" but for that to happen we need:

Don't rush to conclusions, I think 75 wins is realistic this year. 2011 and 2012 could be the beginning of a great "5 year run" but for that to happen we need:

- Tim Alderson, Rudy Owens, Justin Wilson, Jeff Locke, Zack von Rosenberg, Zack Dodson, Colton Cain, Brooks Pounders, Victor Black, Brett Lorin, Aaron Pribanic, Quinton Miller. We need atleast 3 or 4 of these pitchers to pan out. This way we can ship away Duke, Maholm and the sort yet stay competitive and relatively cheap
- Pedro Alvarez must be the bona-fide superstar everyone says he will be
- We can't draft any bums or busts (Danny Moskos, Chad Hermansen, Bryan Bullington and John van Benschoten (who should've played OF),
- NH can't make stupid signings for the sake of signing someone (i.e.- Jeromy Burnitz, Joe Randa, etc.)
- Fans have to show up. This is most important. If the fans don't show up in flocks in the next three years, Nutting won't have the surplus he would feel comfortable to spend on making this team more competitive now

Alright mateys, What be your 5 things that must happen for those swashbuckling Buccaroos to become a World Series competitor in 2011 and 2012?
