Wow. Can't believe it's been over 2 years since this thread was bumped and 3 and a half years since it was created. Man, time flies.

Geesh, this thread's been around so long it was actually started before Ryan Church even had an AB as a Met.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

*The Tribute to Jill* Bump (hold on, this is going to suck for a minute)

I just recently found out that Jill Tobey, AKA on NYFS as reyesgirl, lost her battle to cervical cancer early last year. I knew the year before that she'd been diagnosed and after much treatment, was also going through a period of remission. As is so often the case she and I lost touch when our own lives got busy, but every so often I'd see her logged in here and we'd have "a little chat".

Because the NYFS Beach Ball thread has been bumped (holy cow she loved this thread - take a minute to read through it if you haven't) and because I dropped the ball on acknowledging the death of my friend, I wanted to take a moment to let some of you know who she was.

Jill was a MAJOR mets fan...she was also a diehard Xavier Nady fan, so much so that it didn't matter who we signed or who was coming up from the minors, she'd strongly verbalize her wish that the organization would bring Nady back. She went to as many games as she possibly could every year, including a week or more at Spring Training. She was an active poster here for a long time, as well as a moderator for a few years before she got sick.

She didn't really know too much about the minor leagues, but she knew about the bigs - I didn't know much about the bigs, but I knew about the minors. We became fast friends - first, trying to wrap our heads around what was going on from the top of the franchise to the bottom; but quickly planning time to get together when she came down here for spring training.

Most of you know her as a Mets fan. She was also a woman who, for 30 years, worked at the Yale University Law School in one of the administrative offices where she had constant interaction with young law students. She loved her job on the sole reason that it excited her to see the freshness and hope that the young students brought to the world. She was a wife, a dog mommy, a sister and an aunt.

And...she was my friend.

It really is my favorite thread ever. Forgive me. I don't have the words. I read Jill's again though.

Bump for Jill.

Wow. Haven't seen this thread in awhile... Makes me sad, and happy at the same time. Beautiful thoughts, Rach.

To Reyesgirl... May you rest easy in your angel's wings of orange and blue.
