I'm always an optimist when it comes to my MAVS!!!
Overall they have been looking better and better since the Euro trip. I think the only reason why Dirk played in Germany was for his fans there.
He knew that this day was coming. It's better for him to do it now, and let these guys find some chemistry. When he is back he will fit in nicely with these young guards and proven big men.
We are going to be a lot better than people think, but there I go being optimistic again. I say above .500 when Dirk gets back to full strength...
