One additional point about Familia... this was a great outing for a pitcher that will remain a rotational pitcher throughout his minor league career. My opinion is he will be the first of the Mets prospect pitchers to graduate to Queens, probably as a September starter; however, it is also my opinion that he will eventually wind up in the pen from simple mathematics.
These are just opinions, and most opinions turn out wrong.
IMO, the 2014 rotation will be Johan Santana, R.A. Dickey, Chris Young,
Jon Niese, and Matt Harvey.
That's my opinion. It's not etched in stone and it's not negative. It's just what I believe at 5:48pm EST on Sunday.
I'm not trying to be more right than other minor league bloggers... I just offer up what I think and would hope other writers would respect my opinion for what it is, an opinion
Look... I started this minor league blog stuff... then, the guy before Toby (can't remember his name) came along on SNY, followed by a myriad amount of great writers... Petey... Rob... Toby... David.. all excellent writers with strong opinions. But, that's all they are... opinions.
No opinion is attacking someone else and, if I think a pitcher will wind up in the pen, that's my current perception.
I like Coke. You like Pepsi.
Perception wise, we are both correct.
