Sandy Alderson interview with

Alderson: I’m not sure these things will be addressed over the course of the spring, but I’d say the biggest question mark is the bullpen, just because of what’s in store for [Jeurys] Familia. The kinds of things we’d like to see this season? Less reliance on the home run, better with men in scoring position, a little higher on-base percentage. Those are things from an offensive standpoint. While the rotation is a strength, the five guys have got to go out there and pitch every fifth day. That’s something we’ll really know over time.

This is a really good Q&A.

    Weird to hear Alderson say that because last year all we heard from the manager is that this team is built on the homerun and cannot adjust to fundamental execution, i.e.: small ball. Now, Alderson brings back the same team and expects them to adjust. Wow, he sounds like the fans sounded last year! He’s learning! Now if only he can realize that they cannot adjust.
