Question: I think [Anthony] Hitchens and [Justin] Durant both did well at Major League Baseball. He has proved to everybody who has watched since the spring that he's a player.

Clubs have roster planning to do, and not even knowing for sure whether they would be raided by the league's newcomers was surely a very hard uncertainty to adequately plan around.
