To me, next year doesn't really matter. We're not going to be in contention. I don't see Rizzo making any big offseason moves this year. Maybe grabbing a true CFer. Its 2013 that will be our year to make the playoffs.
Jesus, what? We're going to be in contention. 2013 will be our year to make the playoffs, maybe, but in 2012 we should gun for 85-88 wins and a shot at the wild card.
80 wins this year + 1 win for not having Slaten + 7-8 wins for having more of Stras/Zim/Zimm = wild card race. And if we grab that "true CFer" then things are even better.
