It appears I'm a little behind schedule since last year's was posted at the end of January, but there's still time!
For those unfamiliar with the idea, it's that we as fans can tend to take a particular interest in players on the team. It's a known fact! Some people have baseball crushes on particular players for whatever reason!
There's been a LOT of changes to the team this year. Out with the old, in with the new, they might say.
To help people get involved, let's change it up a tiny bit this year.
1 - If your guy from last year is still on the list and you enjoyed following them, you can do so again. Or not, haha.
2 - Should we let people pick the same player? I was thinking it'd feel like a sweet little fan club / cheering section thing. Definitely people like the same players sometimes.
Here's the list of MLB and noted MiLB players based on expected positions. If there's someone you like that is not on the list, feel free to get me to add them and I will.
