  1. Phil Ervin &/or Jesse Winker…Jesse Winker &/or Phil Ervin…every game, every DOTF update. This is a broken record I enjoy more every time I hear it.

  2. I’m really hoping for a lot out of Tanner Rahier. I have nothing to go on, just that he was drafted highly and is a shortstop with good tools.

    Phillip Ervin, Jesse Winker, Tanner Rahier, Robert Stephenson, etc. Should make for a good farm system in a year.

  3. It’s exciting to watch the core of Ervin, Winker & M-B. Also I keep an eye on Rahier he went to school locally. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to see them all play a game with the Blaze as I did with BH.
