I mean, just look at it! Is that a thing of beauty, or what?

We’ve got RHYS HOSKINS, hitting fourth! NICK WILLIAMS, hitting fifth! And JORGE ALFARO, hitting eighth!

Cue the angels singing! The orchestras playing! The fountains, uh, fountaining! Birds taking off in a heart formation! Let the trumpets sound across the land! Let the town criers unspool their scrolls! THE PROSPECTS ARE HERE! THE PROSPECTS ARE HERE!

I mean, oh my god. We’re just missing J.P. Crawford and Scott Kingery. We’re getting what we want! We have trusted the prospects, and now the prospects are here!

I don’t care if Pete Mackanin has been forced to do this. He’s doing it finally and that’s what matters.

Enjoy the prospects. Enjoy seeing them play together. And enjoy discussing the game in the comments below.
