It's that time of year again. It's an annual tradition here at RR to reach out to the community to give you a chance to preview the teams we'll be playing against this year. Since I'm lazy, here's the guidelines I put up last year, copied and pasted for your convenience.
The premise here is simple. Throughout the course of 3 weeks in March, every weekday will see another team preview written by a RR poster. As for the format, it's very flexible. Each post needs to answer the following questions (same as other years):
- What is the team's overall outlook for the 2011 season?
- Who are the key losses/additions to the team?
- What pitchers/hitters do the Reds not want to see?
- Who are the pitchers/hitters the Reds are looking forward to facing?
- Any rookies/prospects of interest we can expect to see this season?
- Any history of note between the two teams?
- Any former Reds?
You can feel free to add whatever you want to these as well, and answer these as creatively or non-creatively as you want. Previous examples include adding extra categories, hilarious headlines, and even examples of pigs flying in a frozen hell. You can write it from your own perspective, use song lyrics, or even allow special guests. It doesn't even have to be jokey. Whatever you want, as long there's good information in it.
Here's what we're looking at. Since we're starting this later than usual, you're signing up for both the team and the date.

One thing I can't stress enough is that if you don't think you can do the preview, let us know so someone can take your place Geki. We want to make sure that all of these get accounted for. When it's your day, post it in a FanPost. Sign up happens in the comments below, first come, first served. If you sign up for one and life gets in the way (it happens), let me know and we can make arrangements.
