We saw the initial roster that Joe Girardi is going to run with and it’s a solid one to start. Is it the best one the team has seen since the playoff heyday?

Well, the dregs of rebuilding years didn’t offer much to look at (Cedric Hunter anyone?), but the 2018 and 2019 rosters, on paper, weren’t horrible looking squads. They just fell apart at the end. However, with the additions of Nick Castellanos, Kyle Schwarber and Corey Knebel, it’s probably safe to say that when it comes to the opening bell, this is the best roster to trot out to begin a season in some time.
