Take fatboyz, Nicon from couple years ago, prestige, couple teams from major level this year, give them two- three studs from out of state or not bordering state and they are just as good. Not as good on paper by name or usssa history, but just as good in the senior level. They may not win, but you would have 12-15 teams that could win major plus. This year one would argue there was 6-8 teams that could have.
The seven runs compared to five per inning gives the best players a bigger advantage then this new pick up player rule does. Just my opinion, but I am probably right.
