Here are my Show notes from the Podcast.

Topics Discussed:

- Trevor Story vs Tulowitzki for 2016?
- Tyler White and how to determine whether its for real or a fluke?
- Nomar Mazara - Robinson Cano -
- Pitchers have an early advantage in the cold weather and early in the season, BUT
- Kluber and Madison BUmgarner foot injury concern - Matt Harvey (can't find slider) -
- Greinke: 2nd start --> 3 runs in 1st - lights out after that
- Gerritt Cole - Chris Archer - Vincent Velasquez -

- Impressed and disappointed:
--> impressed:
Jerad Eichoff - Brandon Finnegan - Aaron Sanchez (alot of swing and misses) - JA Happ -
--> Disappointed/Concerned:
Dallas Keuchel - Taijuan Walker won't be the dominant guy - Sean Doolittle (Axford) -

- AJ Pollock and the impact of his injury on the D-Backs: (Dansby Swanson to Atlanta)

- NL West breakdown
-- D-Backs are in trouble with Pollock out
-- Dodgers need to hit and need to improve the bullpen
-- Posey maybe an issue. Belt looks good. Denard Span big add.
-- Samardzija signed in SFG because Righetti said he could fix him. Changed delivery? Rocking back and forth - don't want body ahead of arm.
-- Matt Cain - Rockie hitters bat .203 lifetime vs Cain
.
NL CENTRAL
- Cubs: Schwarber getting injured is the best thing to happen to them ->
-- Reds: Not gonna win
-- Brewers: Not gonna win (Lucroy may be stuck there)
-- Pirates: Juan Nicasio 1 good game 1 bad game  the opinions keep swinging
-- Domingo Santana , Jose Peraza,
.
NL EAST
-- Mets "Must Win" Already according to Manager Collins. Pitched Familia 3 straight games
"Reads newspapers & talk shows. Fans are disgruntled. No energy with this team"
-- Mental attitude is a concern for the Mets
-- Down on Pitching staff compared to expectations - mostly down on attitude.
-- David Wright is done. Nothing left. Injuries has sapped his career.
-- Nats under Dusty Baker:
-- Phillies: better than last year. Could win 75. NOT A DOORMAT
-- Braves: worse than expected. Lucas Sims and Max Fried coming - building through pitching. Mallex Smith could contribute, needs to prove it.
-- Marlins: Conley interesting. Could be surprise team in NL East.
