"Conforto should be in AA, not low-A. No one should send a first-round college product to low-A in his first full pro season."Why?
Because it's a step down from the competition he faced in college.
Mack - I respect Keith Law. I really do.
I know he has been harsh about the Mets in the past, but he's one of the top baseball 'heads' in the business.
He's a wise ass, but that's his personality and has nothing to do with his knowledge of the game.
Michael Conforto played three years of college ball and this is his second professional season after hitting .331 in rookie ball Brooklyn.
First... he NEVER should have played rookie ball and should have started last year, at worst, in Savannah. I would have played him in St. Lucie because he was tagged as the top college hitter in the draft and he was already 21 years old.
So, I agree with Mr. Law that the Mets are far too conservative here. Conforto should be starting this season in the same outfield as Brandon Nimmo.
