They already know how to play together...not as much of a learning curve...the big shock to me is the last minute waiver wire pickups that have fit in extremely well.
You're definitely right on all points especially the age and chemistry factors. The waiver wire pickups I thought would originally help with depth if there were injuries but they have done more than that.

We have to give credit to Garth and Jack for being prepared. Hopefully, they reward us with a nice winning streak like Matt Martin the poster and probably the player wants as well. The time is right.
