    We won 91 games last year, and Marcel Ozuna only produced a 107 OPS+ and he is all we lost. And our current outfield options should be able to replicate that.

    We won 91 games, and Matt Carpenter and Paul Goldschmidt crashed and burned for us

    Something for you to consider

    In 2018, Carpenter and Goldie combined to hit .274/.382/.528 - 143 wRC+ - 10.3 WAR - 69 HR
    In 2019, Carpenter and Goldie combined to hit .246/.341/.441 - 107 wRC+ - 3.6 WAR - 49 HR

    What happens if these guys return to their 2018 form?

    We win 5-8 more games than last season if they return to form. Hoping carp turns in atleast a .270avg and goldy gets back to .290+

    Carp is focused on being the hitter he was back in 2013 this year he said on 30 clubs in 30 days. He wants pitches away that he can drive to left again.

    We'll see what happens.

    I'm happy to hear this! I'm a huge Carpenter fan due to him being another hitter that uses the no batting gloves approach as I always did while playing. Still do it to this day while playing in my softball leagues.

    My third, her first.

    So excited though, feels like a first again. Just such an exciting time.

    Yeah, I gotta find a jersey one for sure! Where did you shop for it?

    I'm incredibly excited about this season. My 4 year old son is taking an interest in watching baseball and hockey with his dad. Previously, he was just too young. It's going to be a very special year for me.

    Jeffy, I hope mom and baby stay perfectly healthy! Enjoy every moment!

    My three children are all grown up, and way too fast.
    I still have the mental images of their lives.

    I lived by the saying, "No loving parent ever stated, 'I wish I had spent more time on my job.'"

    Going out for meals, camping, ballet recitals, school programs, and sports at all levels including college.

    Enjoy the times.

    That's awesome man! It's the best. My 10 year old has absolutely no interest. It sucks! We are just very different in terms of interests. He likes going to the games with me, but won't watch them on tv. He'd rather play Roblux on XBOX

    Yairo signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox. Glad he found a gig, but man he needs to work on his people skills.
