I'm finding more reasons to be optimistic about this team every day. Larry Stone lists a good number of these reasons over at The Times this morning. I'll say the following:
- The offense has been pretty good - and looks like it's getting better (Ichiro! comes alive).
- The bullpen has been nothing short of amazing - Morrow and O'Flaherty have been big (and pleasant) surprises.
- Washburn has been awesome so far.
- King Felix is back.
- Series win vs. Yankees. Yes!
- Rest of AL West not very good.
