megaparsecs replied to your post: holy crap!!!!!!!!!
i cant believe this kid is younger than my little sister.
RIGHT? you are tiny. you are younger than me. you are an actual baby holy crap. geez, and him talking about how he was used to this because he played on the national college team.
they drafted him in june. they called him up in september. that is a) NOT NORMAL HOLY CRAP you do not. typically go RIGHT from the draft to the majors in the same year b) incredible. he’d been a pro for four months, they put him in a tie playoff game in extra innings, with the weight of 30 years’ hope on his shoulders, and he was great. what a kid.
