I don't mind this lockout and I'll tell you why.
Last summer, I was VERY excited headed into the season. We had made moves, I thought things were going to swing in a positive direction and things would be good. Then the first two weeks of the season happened.
Having this break, and being able to step back from it, has been helpful on a personal level. I was emotionally invested last summer, then crushed by the dismal start (and everything else that happened).
At this point I'm optimistically curious about this season (or next) to see what we really have, but my expectations are lower. I see this as a rebirth of the team. If I have to wait a little bit to see it, so be it.
I want us to play at least a shortened season so we don't get screwed out of the #1 pick next summer. feel a lot better about this franchise with JD on board.
