From time to time I will check out other Mets websites, and blogsites. I have as they say, some “friends in the biz,” and I enjoy seeing what they’re up to on occasion.
Today I was on Mack’s Mets and I saw something there, an opinion by a “scout,” about one of our Mets farmhands, and I have a real problem with what I saw. I really don’t know what kind of scout this Dave Gershman is, but I’ll tell you one thing, I wouldn’t let him scout movie locations, let alone baseball players. And I certainly wouldn’t quote him in blog or article, as if he had some kind of baseball knowledge that would either enlighten or impress me, cause that ain’t gonna happen.
I did a little snooping….and I found this explanation on Gershman:
Dave Gershman is an Editor at Beyond the Box Score, a baseball publication focusing on unique and advanced statistics. Dave also writes for Marlins Daily (a Florida Marlins blog), and the Penn League Report as he is a writer and freelance scout for the New York Penn League
