There are a lot of players to be excited about in our line up this year. I thought it would a great idea if we shared the players each one of us is excited about or looking forward to watching in 2013.
You have to pick one Brave in MLB and one in the Minor leagues, and give us your reasons for your excitement! I'll start:
I like Freddy Freeman a lot this year. I think he'll have a breakout season. After fixing his eye problems last year, the last three months of the season his BB% was 13.6%, 14.30% and 12.10% for July, August and September, respectively. his BABIP was league avg. last year but a line driver hitter like freeman should be above league avg. News is he has been working out and putting on muscle, so the power might increase. so with his new found patience and power with a line drive stroke, I think Freeman will have a great season. By the way Buster Onle agrees with me!
Christian Bethancourt. I'm excited to see what he does this year simply because the tools are there. With McCann's future not certain with the team, we would all love for him to step in and take over. I'm however not sold on his bat just yet. Thats why I'm intrigued to follow him in AA this year and hope for the best.
