Tons of things to be excited about. Well, for me at least. I'm feeling super optimistic right now.
No more roster spots wasted on Derek Lowe, Nate McLouth, and Brooks Conrad. We'll get a full season with a real leadoff hitter in Michael Bourn. Heyward and Prado can only be better than last year. I really like the Matt Diaz/Eric Hinske platoon off the bench. Healthy Moylan and Medlen add depth to an already stellar bullpen. Nice amount of talented starting pitching.
Only unknown is SS. But that's the no. 8 spot in the order anyways. It would be hard to be significantly worse than Alex Gonzalez at the plate.
I like Atlanta's chances to make the playoffs this time and compete for the NL East title.
