[Ed. note: Once or twice throughout the season, the United Cardinal Bloggers undertake a roundtable discussion via e-mail that involves and answers various questions from the bloggers taking part over the course of a few weeks. We've spent most of our writing time answering those questions and taking part in those discussions (gladly, I might add), so figured they are fair game to post here - not to mention trying to gain a little exposure for both the project as well as some other blogs you all should be reading.]
Daniel from C70 At The Bat asks:
My question is, what are you most looking forward to in the season to come? Is it the chance to see Jaime Garcia pitch in the bigs? Is it a season long focus on Pujols and Matt Holliday going back to back? Is it waiting to see who will be the closer when Ryan Franklin blows up? What exactly are you excited about for 2010?
As one of the most vocal members of the ‘Honkin for Jaime’ group, seeing Jaime Garcia in the rotation is definitely high on my list – the guy has just been lights out this spring. Garcia could be one of the better homegrown pitching prospects to come through St. Louis (and stay here for a bit, hopefully) in a while.
Perhaps most importantly when it comes to the Cardinals (or any other team for that matter), I’m looking forward to a relatively injury-free season. Let’s see another great year from Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, and Albert Pujols. No injuries. Simple, right?
