I kinda feel though that the young players: stubbs, bruce, volquez, cueto, leake, bailey, wood, janish, hanigan will have better years.
Votto: the rock much of the same
Rolen: I think takes a step back but still very productive. Hoping for a more consistent year than the huge 1st half and decent dropoff in the 2nd half.
Ramon: i think takes a step back aswell but not huge but hanigan picks up the slack
Gomes: total wildcard have no idea.
Fred Lewis: dont know what to expect but hoping for a pleasant surprise
Heisey: kinda like gomes i really dont know
Chapman: Dominance or inconsistency?
Cordero: same guy
Bray: left handed specialist?
Masset: ready to dominate a whole year?
Phillips and Arroyo: Just do their thing
Alonso: show me flashes of brilliance?
Dontrelle? I dont even know if this guy will make the roster but i'll root hard for him I was a big fan when he was in FLA.
Okay despite all this Im not sure it will result in more wins. Tougher division, and tougher inter league schedule could trump some player improvement.
