Well the Sports writers mostly are picking the Cards followed closely by the Reds. Picking the Cubs in fourth in some articles. Guess what we never know what we truly have till Allstar break and neither does anyone else. But you could be pleasantly surprised. I'm glad in a sense Ozuna isn't there although I like him. Im ready to see younger players getting the shot. I know O'Neal can duplicate Ozuna if not exeed him. Carlson could be even better. Brad Miller gives them a left handed power hitter off the bench. Martinez seems healthy for first time in two years. Im excited to see what kind of lineup they have.
It was reported we are working on an extension so I guess it's going to happen. I was actually pleasantly surprised he wasn't injured again. Three years is probably right and not top 5 for sure. 6-10 somewhere. I don't like our depth behind Mack at all. I wouldn't mind Jordan Howard as a FA signing to compliment him. Ballard said he wishes he did more on providing more depth for the team. I'm hoping he adds another veteran RB to add a proven player to the group.
Only worry with Herbert is he decides to cash in one big contract after his Rookie one, then rides off into the sunset to Attend Medical School... I believe that's his ultimate goal.... or I'm completely making up things I think I read somewhere... lol
