Expect nothing, be pleasantly surprised.
I’m assuming Dansby Swanson will be worth an extra win or two. My dark horse player to watch this season is Jameson “Whiskey” Taillon, he’s got good K/9 numbers and a very nice K/BB ratio. I’m not thinking he’s going to pull off on Arrieta but maybe he’ll be a sub-3.50/200 k guy.
Nico Hoerner has a lot of promise and I like Christopher Morel.
Happ is boring but above average.
Bellinger is least likely to succeed but maybe getting outta L.A. will lead to a rebirth. He’s still young, and I think a lot of it is in his head. I do believe in the possibility of his return to form a lot more than Heyward’s for sure.
