Interview With rugby1, GM of the Defending NL Champion Syracuse Saltine Warriors

During the Winter Meetings (and before Brogna signed with Pittsburgh, as you can tell), the JBT sat down with the GM of the defending NL Champs to get a take on his team's chances this year.

JBT: How do you look at your chances to repeat?
rugby1: We have a very good chance to repeat as division champs. I try to keep the lineup rested so everyone is at full strength for the playoffs.

JBT: How do you replace Brogna in your lineup?
rugby1: If we do not re-sign Brogna I fully expect Marte to step up and become one of the premier players in the league. Also Daal and Pinzon are capable of improving on last year. If Brogna does resign then we will again have one of the best lineups in either league.

JBT: Can you get a repeat of your second-half pitching performance this year?
rugby1: We will have James for a full season and Jensen should improve over his rookie season. If Brogna does not resign we will use the extra funds to improve the staff.
