I wasn't invited to pitch a tent at camp this year, but today they asked me over to roast some marshmallows. I roasted them to the tune or three hits and three RBI.



What's happening? Where will I play this year? How will I do?

I'm assuming that uni number was just to symbolize his 1st round draft status and that he hasn't been wearing that as a player?
After all, he certainly doesn't have the game to be wearing #1

Which brings up the question: who do you suppose holds the MLB record for HRs while wearing #1 on their uni?
I don't know the answer to this question, btw, it just hit me as I looked at that picture.
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Mookie had 67, and he strikes me as as good a place to start as any.

Richie Ashburn had 29 and his career high was the seven he hit in his final season with the Mets.

How about an almost-perfect contemporary of Mookie's — Lou Whitaker with 244? That's going to be tough to top.

As for Conforto, he is going to hit very well at AA and AAA, showing 15-20 HR power (total).
Then, in 2016 he'll hit his way onto the big league club.

Can't say what he'll do. I hope a lot.

I like that its hard to find a report that didn't consider him a real nice hitter. So rare we get one of those.

Tears it up down on the farm but won't be up until June 2016.

We saw the kid on Saturday - he had three hits, and was great at working the count. He looks like the real deal. I predict he'll get his shot at some point this season and will make an impression.

I thought I posted in all of these threads. It has a lot less posts
than most of the FfF threads I found when looking for it.

We loved the way Conforto looked this spring. Last night in Trenton he went 0-5 and did not look good - only one ball hit hard. Maybe he's bored at AA and will turn it on in the Bigs -- against a rookie call-up for the Dodgers. Let's hope! At least he has a good wikipedia picture!
