I would say they are a better team.
We have five starting pitchers who are all returning, 4 of which are entering the prime of their career.
Greinke and Hart are both healthy and Greinke looked great in spring.
We've improved our infield defense, improved our speed (Gamel, Aoki), and still have 5-6 guys who can hit 20 home runs this season.
Yeah, we lost Prince, and irreplaceable player. But if our pitching holds true and Roenicke continues to show how strategical he can be, we should have a good season.
