No, it is not what most Mets fans think with Campbell, the player Mets fans love to hate.  Campbell hit a ball that went more than halfway to the dugout, and then spun back in play:

I guess we can now spin rate joins hard hit percentage as the uncanny skills Campbell has.

Other players you can vote for are Amed Rosario as the Breakout Prospect  and P.J. Conlon as the Top Starting Pitcher.

Rosario split time between St. Lucie and Binghamton, he hit .324/.374/.459 with 24 doubles, 13 triples, five homers, and 71 RBI.  Each and every one of those statistics was a career best for Rosario.  He did that while also being an elite defensive shortstop.

Conlon split time between Columbia and St. Lucie, he made 24 starts and one relief appearance pitching 142.0 innings. Colon would finish the year with a 12-2 record with a 1.65 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and a 4.67 K/BB ratio. Conlon’s combined 1.65 ERA was the best ERA at any level of professional baseball for qualified starters. In the Mets minor league system, Conlon would finish first in WHIP and K/BB ratio.

The Brooklyn Cyclones were nominated for Game of the Year for their season opener that lasted 20 innings. The Cyclones had to use two position players to pitch in a game they lost to the Staten Island Yankees and had to use two position players to pitch.

The Columbia Fireflies were nominated for Promo of the Year when they wore purple jerseys and launching purple fireworks to honor what would’ve been Prince’s 58th Birthday. 

The Las Vegas 51s and the Brooklyn Cyclones were nominated for Photo of the Year

Voting ends on October 25th, and the winners will be announced from October 26 – November 4th.  Please make sure you go out and vote for your favorite Mets prospects and teams.

    I went to a Cyclones game in July where Rizzie and Woodmansee turned the first triple play in Cyclones history. I hope the Mets don’t trade Colby Woodmansee away before he breaks into the majors, he’s a great shortstop.
