IF they send Witt to the bigs, which is the better/likely defensive alignment? Dozier at 3b, Witt at 2B and Whit in RF? Or Witt at 3B, Whit at 2B and Dozier in RF?

MLB is so far behind on tv deals compared to the NFL.

It's easy to get overhyped with prospects but the way he has just exploded this Spring (after a solid Spring last year) has been special to watch.

Reminds me of the stories coming out of Chiefs camp about Mahomes. No one could believe what they were seeing.

No one gives a fuck about Pratto?

MLB will never catch up to the NFL as long as each club is treated as its own entity and there's no hard salary cap based on TV broadcast revenues.

Well there you have it folks, Witt needs to be on the opening day roster, batting clean up and playing everyday.

Not really after the stinker of milb he's had. He's not even a Top 10 system prospect at this point.

It's about time for Mondesi to get hurt again. Witt can start at SS.

I don't get me wrong, I think Witt Jr could actually be ready. But is 2 months worth screwing yourself out of that service time? Hell no. If he had a full year of minors under his belt there also would be a better argument. He needs sometime to go through the highs and lows of actual competitive baseball as well.

Ftr I'm against starting Witt jr on the opening day roster but I just saw two reports that confirmed that Matheny is pushing for Witt on the opening day roster from sources I don't know how to evaluate. Sherman may be in his corner according to a different media outlet that I have no respect for. Opinions are like assholes, damn near everyone has one.
I'm at peace with it if they do, but it's going to drive ticket prices up. I don't think Dayton will bow to the pressure.
