    Conforto coming out of his long slump. Here's to a strong last 60 games.

    Worth reading but nothing we haven't discussed. I'm glad Bruce is doing well so far but I would have kept the money and given Conforto a starting job.

    I think Conforto and Flores have good long term value if their development isn't stymied.
    We are in the same page here. I think the Mets were also trying to get on the same page. There was no market for Bruce. I do believe that they tried to trade him.

    Conforto is going to hit - Lets hope the Mets don't ruin what they have here.

    How many home runs do you all think Conforto will hit this year?

    I'm thinking 25.
    If he keeps trying to hit them - 12

    If he lets his natural swing take over - 25

    How impressive is this kid right now? Very.
    What I like the most about him is that he seems like a natural at the plate. Even in the 0 for 13 slide he recently went on, he was taking good swings and not looking like the lost sheep Duda looks like whenever he gets into a funk. He's a fun player to watch and the most talented outfielder to come through the organization since Darryl Strawberry.

    Me too. We'll see. He's got an interesting athletic pedigree.

    Here's Conforto's mom with her Olympic Gold Medal:



    His father was a Division 1 linebacker - at Penn State. Couldn't find any images of him in action.

    His BABIP is around .400 so he's due for some regression at some point.

    It's still better to have good luck than the opposite.

    Now you're talking. Bonds also wanted to get to 3000 hits. Just think of the gate sales!
