pretty cool shit, he lives out in Arizona. So he went to Texas Tech for like 2 or 3 years and next season he is going to be on one of their farm teams

But............why the Mets? :-\

Haha thats awesome.

My friend from where I used to live is a redshirt freshman as a punter. They tell me he'll be pro before long. :eek:

Someone who I went to school with got drafted by the Brewers.

But then again that is not something to be proud of.

Hopefully I'll be able to check out one of his games, not sure what farm he is going to be on/where they play. It would be cool if they played the Red Sox farm team up in Maine, that probably wouldn't be too long of a ride.

I know one guy who got drafted by the Devil Rays and another who's actually playing in the Braves' 'AA' system.

Well, since he got drafted by a really crappy team, his chances of making it to the majors are a lot better.

Congrats to your cousin!!!!!! That is a huge accomplishment. I have always viewed baseball as one of those sports that the talent level increases so dramatically as you move from one tier to the next. He must be a top-notch player.

Nate Cornejo is a good friend of mine. I have know him since my freshman year in high school. He plays for the Tigers, so it might not count for this thread. Seein as how the Tigers are bearly a major league team. HA

poor Cornejo..he really should still be at AA-AAA still...

great upside though :y:

My cousin is a minor leaguer for the Pirates. Not much better than the Mets, so I feel your pain. Or something.

I'm a Mets fan, though, so best of luck to him. I'm sure he'll be starting in a year or two. That or traded for some washed-up veteran with a pair of bum knees who tears his hee-hoo while swinging a bat. Idgits.

That's awesome. Best of luck to him :D

BTW, Mets are better than the Brewers, which I'm stuck with here. It'll be interesting to see who they're sold off to. I'm not a baseball fan by any means, so they may have already been. (Sore point for me, 3 deaths for an unnecessary stadium for a failing team, and forced tax increase. I'd just like to see the Brewers disbanded)
