2. I still hate the fact that the Mets used a first round pick on someone that went to high school in a state that doesn’t have baseball in their schools; however, the actual production coming out of Brandon Nimmo IS starting to impress me. What also is impressing me is the 1-2 punch of Nimmo and SS Phillip Evans who seem to be producing keys runs every game now. I don’t plan on being around in 2016, but you just might be looking here at two of the starters that year.
3. I asked independent NY-Penn scout Dave Gershman if SS Phillip Evans is starting to show the signs that he was worth the high pick? Gershman said: “my thoughts on Evans. I don't think he has a position. He can hit, but he really doesn't fit anywhere as a permanent fielder and doesn't have much power. Not sure he'll make it.”
4. RP Harry… err… I mean, Robert Carson is showing some real life in Buffalo (5-G, 1.23, 1.23(?) that he didn’t show in Binghamton (4.79) or at any other level since 2008 in Kingsport (1.76). Interest late bloomer? Boy, wouldn’t it be great to have a power lefty coming in for the 8th?
5. The “War Room” idea was a good one for Sunday. In fact, we’re going to keep this theme until some other site… no, lol… probably at least two other sites… copies. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any weekly theme ideas for “The War Room”
