When you look at the juxtaposition of other NL Central teams, the way their offseasons have gone...Our pitching gets very very strong, their offense (Cards, Brewers, Cubs and Stros) gets very weakened. It's really exciting. Really really exciting. Think: Madson and Marshall. That's awesome against any lineup in baseball. Now picture late innings vs the Cards. Are we wondering when Pujols is coming up? No. Late innings vs the Brewers. Are we wondering when Fielder is coming up? Braun for part of the year, either? No. Houston: no Pence or Bourn. Maybe no Lee. Cubs: well, not sure why I'm listing them.
This is going to be an awesome year!!!!!!!!!!
