I was watching the highlights of yesterdays Caribbean World Series game between the Dominican Republic and Mexico that ended with the Dominican Republic winning 7-1.
It featured solid performances from 2 Mets, Nelson Figueroa who pitched a complete game giving up only 3 hits one of them a solo HR and 0 walks with 8 strikeouts and Fernando Martinez who went 2 for 4 with a HR 2 rbi’s and 2 runs scored and it got me to thinking.
How good can the Mets AAA club the Buffalo Bisons be this season?
Surprisingly with names like Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada the slogan the Bisons might best want to use this year is
“Catch The Rising Stars!”
Maybe Omar Minaya’s best trade of the off season was no trade at all.
Here is a break down of what the team may look like at a certain point this season.
