    How is the pitcher they faced? I saw he has a very good ERA but is he a legit prospect?

    I sat right next to Gary Sanchez brother in the second row behind the dugout and I think he was older because he looked exactly like him but a little taller and had a beard. Plus he was with two beautiful caramel Latin girls who I guess you can say they were gonna bang tonite. Also his brother had like a special bell to get his attention when he was in the dugout and used as a noisemaker for when he made a play and came to bat. Also if you were at the game I was on camera twice wearing a brown shirt looking away.

      Pics of the caramel Latin girls?

    I was at the game,Met pitcher Gorski looked good to me and as a lefty I would say definitly a prospect.Obrien struggeled a little but pitched well Nuding impressed me and Kahnle looks like a closer.
    There wasnt much on the offensive side,was surprised to see Z Almonte in the line up.Sanchez looked good behind the plate I could see he had control of the pitchers.Tyler Austin seemed to have a new intensity I guess his injury did effect him earlier this year,Mason Williams world of talent covered the outfield like a blanket and hit the ball hard.Ramon Flores also hit the ball well that triple he hit was a blast.
