After watching Tampa Bay Rays pitching prospect Matt Moore's clean one-inning, one-strikeout performance for Team USA in Sunday's Futures Game, I sent out the following tweet:

"My editor is going to have to keep me from writing 5000 words about Matt Moore - with a lot of exclamation points..."

This won't be 5,000 words, and I will do my best to keep the excess punctuation down, but the sentiment remains the same.

I mentioned in my video preview of the game that Moore was the arm I was most looking forward to seeing, as he's continued to be not just effective, but dominant, after moving to Double-A this season. He did not disappoint on Sunday, as he was the most impressive arm in the Futures Game. What does he think he's doing better this year?
