There’s always one guy every spring training that draws a crowd to see how fast he throws. Ambiorix Burgos is that guys this year.
Lastings Milledge, Ben Johnson, Endy Chavez and Damion Easley _ not the A Team, I know, but still players _ did nothing.
After Burgos shattered Milledge’s bat, coach Sandy Alomar yelled to the hitter, “I thought you had fast hands … where are they?”
Said Milledge: “I don’t know, I must have left them at home.”
Burgos’ problems with Kansas City were his control. If he resolves that, the Mets could have a find. Yes, it’s the first full workout, but pure gas is pure gas.
