We’re almost to the start of spring training and I’m excited.
Health is the number one question. Yes there are too many corner outfielders, and yes the bullpen could be better. But we’re returning the majority of players from last year’s Wild Card team and the previous year’s World Series team.
Zach Wheeler’s health and transition to the bullpen (temporary or not) is important, and obviously the health of the rest of the rotation coming back from being under the knife is also important.
Lucas Duda’s health is also important. I feel like the difference between a 30-home run firstbaseman and what we had last year is a very real thing.
David Wright is going to be be David Wright. You almost have to hope he’s not healthy enough to HURT us. If he’s healthy enough to play but not to play well, how long of a leash is he given?
