Yea, it's definitely nice to see this so far. Not sure how much I buy into the team yet, but I'm certainly enjoying the ride so far. I expected us to take it to the next level in 2009 but no complaints about a year early.
We have a bunch of arms either coming off the DL or being ready for the majors the next 6-12 months so we should be able to fill holes (see young Catcher) via trade hopefully.
Absolutely tickled pink about Hanley though.
