I've had it since the end of the 2011 season. And I felt it, strongly, again yesterday.
Cueto - 7 strong innings
Madson out for the season - Marshall - 1 IP, 2 K's, and he made them look stupid.
Chapman - 1 IP, 2 K's........and he looks like a totally different pitcher and still is dominant.
Votto didn't do much of anything.......BUT.......
Rolen = after botching the bunt play in the 1st inning - he turned in 2 plays only Rolen could make. Then he doubles setting up a key run scored. This is a good sign.
Bruce - after hitting 2 previous at-bats to CF, he finally drills one and shows us all what to expect much of the season ahead.
Ludwick - key double to add insurance. Solid in LF.
Heisey - is there any better Pinch Hitter in baseball? Another key insurance run.
In terms of maturity, this team has reached it. I'm really impressed with their demeanor and attitude. From the off season to Spring Training until now...........this team gets it. Nothing is going to stop them. This will be a fun season, similar to 1990.
