Tom Brennan - HOW 'BOUT THAT GAME YESTERDAY?
Man, how about that game yesterday?
No, not Cubs-Injuns, and no, not the big early season Brooklyn Nets' win over the Detroit Pistons.
Nope, I'm excited about the Scottsdale Scorpions (7-13) winning 8-5 in the Arizona Fall League!!
They had 8 big runs, 7 strolling walks, 6 hard hits, 5 fumbling errors, and a partridge in a pear tree.
There was limited Mets farmhand involvement in this one; I immediately assumed, with 5 errors, that Gavin Cecchini played, but he did not. He no doubt was on the bench amazed at the level of errors! "Who makes such errors?"
Kidding aside, Champ Stuart was 2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBIs. He was also replaced late in the game, hopefully not due to injury 9don't think so, most likely a routine switch). Champ is batting .372 (16 for 43, only 14 points behind the AFL batting leader). Keep it up and open some eyes, Champ.
The only other Mets' farm gem, the always competent Corey Taylor, threw well again, going 2 innings, allowing a few hits and a run and striking out 3.
Ex Met Akeel Morris got in the game, recording 2 outs, allowing a run on 2 walks and a hit.
Tim Tebow was diagnosed with a T Bone injury, and told to apply A-1 Steak Sauce to the injured area.
One non-Mets guy I never heard of that has been lights out is Jared Miller of Arizona's system: 13 IP, 4 H, 1, W, 24 K. Just throwing it out there.
