How does the 2019 team look?

They'll look good in those new uniforms. There is also the hope for the future. There is a chance that some of these guys that are in their late 20s, may be hungry enough to put together a team effort that may be a little surprising (in that we aren't a 100-loss team).

 

I think the highest hope for 2019 is that we'll be intriguing because I wonder what some of these late age 20s guys can do with their first extended chances that they will get here, that weren't available in their previous franchises.

 

With this said, the joy will be to see what kids are ready to come up to join the ones that are already up.

Personally feeling good. I have low expectations but this team could pleasantly surprise. Could be terrible, sure, but also could have the feel of the Dan Uggla/Cody Ross era teams. Maybe.  Should in the least be fun to watch which youngsters in our organization start making names for themselves over the next few years.

That's what I'm thinking with some of the guys that are in their mid to late 20s, that they got from the scrap heaps of other franchises (O'Brien, Cooper, Caleb Smith, Dixon Machado, etc.). Ross was that. Uggla was Rule 5. Cantu was thought to be done from injuries. Joe Borowski, Todd Jones...etc. etc. I'm wondering about possibly finding a few of those this year.

Those Beinfest days were certainly interesting times. It always felt like we were always finding some diamond in the rough, or at least a pretty stone, every year that kept things exciting and it always felt like we were just one piece short of being on a playoff run.  At least that's what I recall from those days when I put on my teal tinted glasses.

 

My excitement level was definitely never at negative 1 million.

Considering Stanton was getting hurt quite a bit and was spending some time on the DL he would know about that. Worry about hitting the slider Stanton before commenting.

 

In regards to the original question. Definitely an exciting season. Ballpark has been remodeled. New colors and logo with a vision on what they are trying to accomplish. Excited about Sixto, Victor Victor Mesa and some of the prospects we should have stepping in by the end of the year.
