Thank you Terry Collins (and/or Sandy Alderson) for hatching an intelligent plan for young gun Jenrry Mejia. Of course this years plan doesn’t include bouncing him from rotation to pen and back again.
Collins has already stated Jenrry will begin season as a starter in AAA and may likely come up by midseason. BMF was relieved to see this after beating the Mejia must start drum for the past year. Our rotation is wide open for one or two kids to command a slot at some point in ‘11 and it seems Collins is doing his best to give his guys a chance to do so.
All I’ve ever asked for Mejia is a fair shot to do what he knows and does best — start. I firmly believe if given the opportunity he’ll earn a shot with the big club - and likely woulda done so last year also.
I’ve got a GREAT feeling about Mejia and can’t wait to see in action this spring.
