10 Q's for the '08 D'Backs

Postby bigh0rt » Mon Feb 11, 2008 1:44 pm

1: How is Randy Johnson’s back?
Johnson threw off a mound at Brett Fischer’s training complex the first week of February and the reports were good. The D-Backs believe they have a good gauge on what they can expect this season after seeing him in spring training.
...
7: Is Justin Upton ready for the big time?
Upton came within a single of becoming the first teenager in major league history to hit for the cycle last Aug. 7, his home debut, but he had only 259 at-bats above Single-A before his promotion to the D-Backs last year.
...
10: Will this be the season Stephen Drew breaks out?
Drew had 12 hits in 31 postseason at-bats, shucking off a .238 batting average in his first full regular season. He never seemed to let his struggles at the plate affect him, playing quality defense and getting 60 RBIs.

Definitely one of the more interesting teams heading into the 2008 season. Their fans have a lot to look forward to. They certainly have the pieces to make a pennant run, although I think the loss of Valverde may loom larger than they think down the stretch. Valverde is an absolute bull.
