BMF really has a good feeling about Lucas Duda.
I think this kid is about to grow into the major league version of himself. Last year he got a taste of the bigs and perhaps the most vital lesson he’ll ever get.
Despite being overmatched for quite some time after getting called up Duda stayed with it. Kept his composure, refused to lose confidence and ended up mauling the ball down the stretch.
Confidence has been tricky for the young strapping slugger. Believing he really belonged in the Bigs was an emotional hurdle that needed clearing and you gotta believe he had a smile on his face all winter knowing in his heart that he can handle MLB pitching.
Sure would be interesting if the kid gets off to a hot start and becomes the CityField Slugger.
Boy oh boy could we use a bona-fide slugger. And I’m not talking about a “power hitter” like Beltran, Wright etc, no I’m talking about an Adam Dunn hoss in the box (with a better avg)
Now that’s a storyline that could make the Mets Fun,
