With another good performance Thursday afternoon, young future star Nick I will play anywhere Evans is going to make it hard for the Mets and Manuel to have him sent to the minors once the season starts. There has been talk that he might make the team until the Mets need to bring Livan Hernandez to be the fifth starter.
Well Evans has been doing what he can by getting on base. Evans is hitting .308 and has 3 home runs this spring after hitting 1 today in the Mets 12-1 victory against the sorry looking Astros.
Surfing The Mets - NY Daily News mentions that maybe Marlon Anderson is not a a sure thing with his 1M contract with the way Evans is playing. Good!! Marlon you were great in the clutch in the past but its time to give away to something that this team needs to continue to embrace YOUTH!!!!!
Nick was told by Jerry Manuel that he will get some time in right field starting Friday against the Orioles. Keep him in the line up Jerry!
