Sandy didn't say that. Adam Rubin said it. Sandy said ""I would expect the roster will look similar to the way it did at the end of last year -- with some exceptions," Alderson said Tuesday. "It's hard to speculate. When you think about it, the trade market, signing free agents and so forth, it's relatively young in the season. It's hard, really, to accurately predict where things will end up."

Five of the eight starters the same. Would it be better than 2012? A contender for a playoff spot? You tell me.
C: J.P. Arencibia
1B: Ike Davis
2b: Daniel Murphy
3b: David Wright
SS: Ruben Tejada
LF: Lucas Duda or Kirk Youspellhislastname (I suspect you know it's Nieuwenhuis)
CF: Leonys Martin
RF: Cody Ross
