So, folks, how did your new favorite Jay do? Looking at the list above is certainly a lot different than the team we watched at the end of the year. It also gives quite a picture into what players were on our minds before any games were played. We might look back and wonder why anyone would be thinking of Hagan Danner instead of the not-even-listed Reese McGuire, who will definitely be more on our minds next season. Cavan Biggio was an afterthought selection, and Drury sold such hope.

How did your Jay do? Did you find yourself caring a bit more?
