Cecil Cooper. Mr. Optimistic

Apparently Cecil Cooper knows something we don't. He predicts the Astros will win 90 games.

"We should win 90 games, without question," Cooper said this morning. "We have a terrific bullpen. We have one of the best closers in the game. We've got the ace in the National League. We've got three of the best offensive players at their position. We've got, if not the best, then one of the top catchers in baseball.

"I mean, c'mon. We've got what it takes. You're telling me we're not going to win that many games?"

I agree, but 90 wins is going to have to come from the players that he didn't mention. Bourn has to produce, Kaz has to be healthy, Pence has to show more than his sophomore slump, SP3-5 are going to have to win 5-7 games a piece. It's going to take more than Fat Elvis, Roy O and Lee to win.

I am glad to see he is so optimistic about this years team. Let's see in 13 days huh?
