I was actually down to the game with some free tickets tonight. Rowdy is raking and hitting the ball really hard. Reese McGuire looked good behind the plate. They obviously have Jansen back there too. Gurriel looks good on the infield.
They have quite a few nice young pieces coming up for September, along with guys like Guerrero Jr, Bichette, Biggio and co still on the farm.
Nate Pearson apparently hit 101 mph on the gun the other night.
I'm pretty excited for the future. Hopefully guys like Reid-Foley, Borucki, and Pearson can bolster a rotation that (hopefully) has Sanchez and Stroman healthy for the next couple of years (obviously a very big if).
It's tough to compete right now with the powerful BoSox and Yanks line ups, but maybe this is the beginning of building towards it again.
