Monday's Dump & Chase: Who Will Make the Team?

New, comments

Kevin Fiala wants to make the team. This isnt all that uprising or unusual, young players say that all the time, "this is an amazing opportunity, yada, yada, yada." The bigger question is, should he? Fiala has done nothing but impress in his time at camp and he may be the dynamic scorer we have always dreamed about, but more importantly this question comes back to where the franchise is in terms of competitiveness. Is it finally time for the youth movement we've been advertised since the Arizona Series? Or do we have what it takes to play for it All with or without the rookies? The final roster may tell us a lot about where, at least the coaching staff, think we are, either way, its a long season which, consequently, is almost here. So happy Monday, enjoy the week folks!
