It’s that time again. Time to set aside roster projections and preseason prognostications for a second. Time to step back from studying spring training boxscores and white-knuckling it through World Baseball Classic games. Time for your take. Yes or no: Are you optimistic about your team in 2023?

The Hope-O-Meter is back. We wouldn’t dare sunset it after that debut performance last spring. More than 12,000 readers participated in that one, giving their thoughts on the Oakland Athletics (1.9 percent optimism) and the Atlanta Braves (99.7 percent optimism) and every team in between. The written responses from readers were extremely entertaining, and honestly some are even funnier now re-reading them almost a year later.
