Being called a AAAA player is generally an insult - a guy who kills AAA but cant quite make it in The Show. But that’s not how I mean it.
We seem to have a gang of budding MLB players, guys who deserve a shot in the Bigs but aren’t gonna get a chance b/c there just isn’t room.
I’m talking about guys like Lucas Duda, Nick Evans and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. All these guys can put the bat on the ball but I don’t think any of ‘em are making the club.
Then you’ve got Fernando Martinez, Brad Emaus and Pedro Beato. More talent worthy of at least a test drive in Flushing but again it’s possible none of them will be in Orange and Blue come opening day.
Of course with Beltran and Bay in the OF we could see both Duda and Evans both in the lineup by tax day.
The funny thing is despite Beltran giving us a better chance to win I’d rather root for Lucas Duda.
