It makes you appreciate how much time and effort it takes to make it to the majors. Nearly all the guys drafted or signed are HS superstars or college stars. 99percent of them wash out within a year. To labor so many years in the minors, fighting through injury and doubt shows a great deal of courage.

He was getting ready to throw a ball out to some fans yesterday and noticed my Mets t-shirt surrounded by mostly yankee ones , then pointed his finger towards me and lofted one up for me to have... pretty awesome to have happen. Always root hard for my mets but going to give Scott some extra cheers next time I'm there. Seems like a good dude.

That's a good story. It's tough when I don't think he belong in the majors based on performance but you know he's a good guy on the other hand.
