But, just because they won, it does not mean they should be the favorites to win again this season. However, they have a couple things going right for them as far as chemistry is concerned. Players like Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro, who jelled with this team so perfectly last season, cannot be expected to perform at the same level now that they have signed new contracts.
