DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Will either Fernando Martinez or Kirk Nieuwenhuis be an impact player for the Mets outfield within the next several years?
(kernan from Ogden)
Well, I'm bothered by the term impact. Maybe we have different definitions. I think they both could be every day players, and good ones, but is that impact? Take any team, even a first place one, and count the impact guys. I like those two -- but I don't think they'll be impact guys. (Kevin Goldstein)
