Last night I was able to see some of the rising stars in the Mets system. Players such as
Gregory Peavey (#23)
(Click on links in the page to see pictures from last night!)
Although the Gnats were pounded due to ineffective pitching from Erik Goeddel and Angel Cuan I saw a lot of promise. For one thing, Corey Vaughn and Aderlin Rodriguez are huge. They are so much bigger than the rest of the players for either team. Rodriquez did struggle a little at the plate last night and Vaughn struggled in RF but you can tell the potential is everywhere for these two. Darrell Ceciliani was also impressive. He has a savoy about his game. He’s kind of short and stocky but seems to have excellent speed and played a good CF. One prospect that I have not heard much about that impressed me last night was Javier Rodriguez. You might have read a little about him in our:Ladies and Gentlemen, Your 2011 Savannah Sand Gnats!! preview. He seemed to have all the physical tools and leads the team with 11 total bases in just 4 games.
I get the opportunity to go back tonight and while I most likely will not take as many pictures I will still share a few tomorrow as well.
For now, if you have facebook access, take a peak at these pictures. You should be able to see them without an account. If you can’t, I plan to get these uploaded soon.
