Back from the dead.....again

This time, I'm sticking around.

This abortion of a season is finally behind us, and with a new GM comes new hope. Jack Zduriencik is highly regarded as one of the better scouting minds in the league, and he was largely responsible for the enviable pipeline of young talent in Milwaukee. One of his first moves as GM, in fact, involved canning former scouting director Bob Fontaine (who was one of the few bright spots in the Bavasi regime) and bringing over two guys from Milwaukee, Tom McNamara and Tony Blengino (who happens to be a card-carrying SABR member).

So in spite of the dismal six months we just endured, I'm excited about the upcoming offseason, and looking forward to seeing what direction Zduriencik takes the team. I'll be here all winter documenting the latest Hot Stove action. First, I will be starting a player-by-player review of 2008, starting with the rotation.

Look forward to it!
