    Well, even though you forgot to have Liriano on the list of additions, i think they just treaded water. No better. No worse. What they gained in some areas they lost in others.

      Ooh thanks for the heads-up. Missed him because technically he’s not on the 40-man roster yet.

      Definitely agree that they’ve remained status quo in some areas after additions/subtractions.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. Go Bucs.
