☛ After starting the season 1 for 13, in the Cyclones fourth game Vaughn's bat awoke. He tripled and homered. He also scored from third on a sacrifice bunt. (Go Wally!) Unfortunately, J. B. Brown's bat's still asleep. He went 0 for 3 yesterday and was dropped in the order to the sixth spot.
Ryan Fraser had a successful debut. He pitched an inning of hitless relief, striking out two. In his 2010 season pitching for the Memphis Tigers, Fraser was 3-5 record with a 7.04 ERA. Maybe the Mets have figured out what he was doing wrong.
☛ How reliable is this? Prior to the 2010 season, The College Baseball Blog rated Mets draftee Norman Forsythe the 17th best college player and Matt Harvey #36. Their 2009 preseason ratings of the top 50 college players had Matt den Decker rated #12; in 2010, den Decker didn't even make their list.
☛ If you haven't seen the catch den Decker made in this year's College World Series, here it is. It's one a la Willie Mays.
