Do I Really Look Like A Guy With A Plan?

“The Plan” – or trying to see the future forest amidst a bunch of presently broken trees.

MMO Prospect Pulse: Juan Centeno, C

I have been asked more than once why I thought minor league catching prospect Juan Centeno received a non-roster invite by the Mets to Spring Training.
