I have read on here projections of 75 to 85 wins (when we thought we had Sanchez). I am interested to see how we see this team showing that much improvement in 2013.
I see a team that won 61 games last year. Yes,after the deadline we played a bunch guys that shouldn't factor in much this season
BUT we also were only on a pace to win 66 games when the deadline deals and injuries took place.

So if we use that as a baseline, how does this current configuration (without conjecture of picking up this guy or that guy) win 9 to 19 more games over last year?
I won't even mention that the deadline deals could and probably should happen again this year. I just don't see a lot of changes that help.
1) a platoon of Scheirholtz and Sappelt in one outfield spot
2) catching platoon over Soto
3) Rizzo over 1/2 Lahair 1/2 Rizzo
4) better bullpen (unproven), but worse starting staff

I've posted before saying that I don't see much (if any) improvement over last year's team at this point. Obviously a big trade or FA signing changes any projections for 2013, but most trade proposals would probably lower this year's win total and hopefully add to the future win totals. Right now I'm thinking somewhere around 65-67 wins.

There's a thread about 3 down from that one called "projecting 2013".
