I went to the futures game today, which was more fun than I was expecting. It was tough to be terribly excited about pitchers when they only get an inning of work, and in most cases, the hitters and pitchers aren’t even at the same level right now. The talent is there for all of the players, it’s just not defined as much as it could be. Still, some players at the cusp, like...
