Last week, I did a write-up defending Gavin Cecchini from the horde of skeptics that have continually looked down on him. This week I am continuing on that trend, but I don’t think I need much convincing when it comes to the next player, Brandon Nimmo. In June of 2011, the Mets took Brandon Nimmo […]

Slow Start Sends Duda to the Sidelines for a Few Days
