What's your excitement level for this year?
Not a poll. I just want a general feeling of your level of anticipation vs the years since 2000.
Personally, this is the most excited I've been since Jr. was acquired. I knew then he wasn't the missing piece, but it was Jr.!
Now for me it's seeing a full season of Votto and hopefully Bruce. It's seeing Belisle take a Harang like step forward. It's EE and Phillips. And man, what are the kids gonna do in the #4-5 spots in the rotation.
Needless to say, talking about Bailey, Volquez, Cueto, Maloney, Bruce, and Votto is so much better than Almanzar, Haynes, Milton (ugh) Williams, Womack and Jiminez.
It's nice to see the system actually produce. I want to see these kids play.
