I'm going to ask some arbitrary questions about young players on the Mets or who were on the Mets:
1) Lucas Duda - Has he been getting enough credit? He has been raking -- Brooklyn, St. Lucie, ST, everywhere. He was a 7th round pick out of USC and in the words of a guest poster at MetsBlog.com: "He can rake."
2) Second opinions on Mike Pelfrey? He hasn't gotten a whole slew of innings but he has been pretty effective when the batter's name isn't Utley. He is constantly throwing a low 90s two seamer, and backs it up with a mid 80s change, a slider and the occasional sinker. So what's the forecast?
3) Fernando Martinez continues to have growing pains -- will they ever end for the soon-to-be 20 year old?
4) What would make the Santana look like a bust?
