In addition to the things you said, I saw Gilbert really toss that ball. Kid has some potential. As many others have said, I'd almost feel better as him with the backup over Stanton. Maybe by the middle of the season we'll see that. First few games we'll let him watch from the stands as he gets used to things.
I saw Hilliard looking much quicker than he had in earlier games. Maybe that hammy was holding him back.
I saw the preseason end, and there was much rejoicing.
I am unfamiliar with this feeling of optimism
