Brett Ballantini and Adrian Serrano sit down to preview the home opener and opening homestand, paying particular attention to some of the hotter topics of this new season:
- How about this offense! Making contact, feeling confident No. 1-9, younger hitters getting more experience and confidence ...
- Which leads, of course, to a protracted discussion of Tim Anderson: his incredible value and importance, growth, seemingly limitless ceiling — and mind games
- On the other hand, sigh, the rotation — the club seems perfectly set up for any sort of issue that confronts it in the home opener, but from there, it’s an arms crapshoot
- How likely is it that Dallas Keuchel forgets 2021 and reverts to at least the reliability of 2020?
- Diving deep into the Frankie Montas-Andrew Vaughn rumor/talks/offer
- Also: Tune in to the postgame podcast, up somewhat shortly after the end of the home opener
