The way the game has progressed to max velocity for pitchers, max swing for hitters, max velocity off the bat etc. has proven to be successful for many, but the amount of star players being injured is not good. There are around 20 players around Glasnow's talent that are all missing significant time. The giant stars of the game like Acuna, Tatis, Trout, Bieber and deGrom are all either out for the year or will miss most of it. From a fan's point of view, this can't be good for the game.

Just another example of why I have come around on never taking Pitchers with a top 10 draft pick. An ace that can avoid the knife is just so rare.

I am with you and agree. What is getting scary thoug is all of the hitters that are getting hurt now as well. Tatis, Trout and Acuna are 3 of the biggest draws of the game.
