Check back next week for a complete position-by-position breakdown of the roster, the latest Prospect Power Rankings, and a list of potential offseason moves the team could still try to make before the season starts.” Reports also stated that the long-dormant blog contained a poll asking readers which team would win the NL West division in 2011, which as of press time had received one vote.
