    I can honestly say that each Met affiliate has put together an amazing stretch of games so far. I’m really liking St. Lucie’s offense as well, thy have some true hitters on that squad. Going to catch them this weekend here in Fort Myers.

    Senor Conde ,

    How are you David ?

    I am very pleased with the nightly entertainment and joy the Mets minor leaguers have brought me this year . I agree with the St Lucie bats , as impressive as Nimmo has been I think Dilson Herrera is right next to him as far as potential prospects go. Very encouraging up and down the system . A couple of guys I am waiting on intently are Casey Meisner , Ivan Wilson and of course Ahmed Rosario . Can’t wait ill the short seasons start and we can get a little peak at these guys.

    Say hello to Elias for me please my friend and have a great day at the game this weekend.
