I am very much looking forward to this upcoming 2017 season. For the first time since Jake Peavy was our ace and Khalil Greene was our shortstop, we finally have some young players that us fans can identify with and can proudly call them our own.

When fans think of the Cubs, Kris Bryant immediately comes to mind. When it comes to the Indians, Francisco Lindor comes to mind and so on and so forth. Having said that, I like our core group of home grown players in Travis Jankowski, Austin Hedges, and Hunter Renfroe.

I like Jankowski because of his speed and defense. I like Hedges because of his defense (in particular his pitch framing and throwing out would be base stealers). Last but not least, I like Hunter Renfroe because of his raw power.
