Every year you see the same standard optimistic articles from the local guys. I'd like to put together a checklist of them and see if we can predict who will fill the roles. For example.

* Guy was hurt last season, has prepared this offseason and is ready to break out. - Kearns

* Guy had a horrible season last year - is humbled, hopes to do better this year - Milton

* Guy has a new pitch, new stance at the plate - look for big things from him - ?

* Long shot to make the club - Bailey

* Personal setback/tradgedy, ready to overcome - ?

* Aging verteran taking on a reduced role/retiring after the season. - ?

It just isn't the baseaball season until the checklist is complete. :)

Paul Wilson - Stole money from Dan O'Brien, feels guilty and wants to make up for it.


* Aging verteran taking on a reduced role/retiring after the season. - ?
