SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — I did a poll like this last September as the 2016 Cubs were on their way to a World Series title.

The cast of characters hasn’t changed much, but I wanted to find out how you feel about our favorite team as we’re approaching the 2017 season.

This poll has players I expect to be on the 25-man roster. I’ve added a couple of guys who might make the Opening Night roster about whom there’s still a bit of uncertainty.

My favorite hasn’t changed. Though guys like Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Jake Arrieta will likely lead this poll, I’m still partial to Kyle Hendricks. I love the way he carves up big-league hitters with the changeup they know is coming, but they still can’t hit it. He never says much, preferring to speak with his pitching.

So as we wait for this afternoon’s spring game against the Dodgers, cast your vote in the poll.
