Aloha Folks! This is exciting! Want to say no pressure on Wilson but I am sure he will feel some as did Almora and wanting to produce. I hope Ross/Montero welcome him and help him to settle in behind the plate. Curious as to where Maddon puts him in the lineup, 6-7-8? Will be neat to see his backstop play! Take care everyone. Mahalo!
