With pitchers and catchers officially reporting Thursday, all we have are questions without definitive answers.
It's always fun to take a gander, though, so here are 10 of the biggest issues entering this season and our best ripostes.

Playing it well isn't so easy.
By the end of last season, Soriano had turned into a serviceable, if not good, left fielder. Transitioning to center field, however, is a different beast. The center fielder runs the outfield. He relays the positioning to the corner outfielders. He is responsible for a vast array of open space. He can call off anyone.
Put Soriano in a domed stadium and the worries would lessen. Stick him in San Diego or Florida and he'd be fine. Wrigley Field, Soriano's new home, feasts on inexperienced outfielders.
