Vitters is getting an appraisal through Mudcats radio tonight. Last night and tonight Vitters is having a hard time with his throwing accuracy to first base. Apparently this is a season long problem for him. This was a topic last night as well. His hands are reported to be below average and his arm is solid. There is nothing wrong with his bat.

It's no secret that the BA and similar observers are simply going to give a LOT of rope and consideration to prospects that were drafted in the top 5 of their class, especially if they have one exceptional strength. It's an obvious and unfortunate bias.
