Muniz Makes Three

Vacation plans have put the blog entries on hold a bit, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), but checking in from the West Coast, I was thrilled to see Carlos Muniz's name in a couple of recent Mets box scores.

One of the all-time "good guys" to ever wear a Cyclones uniform, Muniz was nothing short of dominant in his pro debut for Brooklyn in 2003 before a thumb injury sidelined him. He got a brief call-up to Shea last year, and is back in the Mets bullpen mix for now. Congrats to Carlos, who becomes the third former Cyclone on the Mets current active roster (joining Angel Pagan and Joe Smith)

And though he's not with the Mets anymore, it was nice to see another Brooklyn alum -- Brian Bannister -- shut down two of the majors' most high-powered offenses, the Tigers and the Yankees...especially the Yankees.

Keep track of the former Cyclones around the majors, and remember that when you come to a Cyclones game, you're watching baseball's future stars!
