Default Should I go see Nick Castellanos?

Hey guys, Erie is in Binghamton, about one hour away from me. Is it worth it for me to go try to graph Nick Castellanos? Any input is appreciated, Thanks!

Definitely...I saw him in Akron two weeks ago. He was one at a time, but would sign any time you'd ask (before/after the game). He did two of these for me:


I like to show it off...it's one of my favorites, so I'm sure people are tired of seeing it, haha...

While you're there, Bruce Rondon is also definitely worth getting.

Awesome, glad you told me about Rondon, never heard of him. Also, if there is a double header tomorrow, do you think Castellanos would sign before each game? Thanks for the input!!

Rondon was cool...he pitched in the Futures game, has a great arm with a fastball that can hit triple digits consistently. He did multiples for me...

I've never 'graphed a double-header before, so I really don't know about that. I just know that when he signed pregame, I asked him to sign a second for me; he said "I'll get you after the game," which he did. Heard he signed in the parking lot afterwards, too.

Castellanos is as close to untouchable as it gets...there's very little chance he gets traded.

Yeah saw that on the schedule, but I'm in Syracuse, so Erie is too far

I love some of the names in the Eastern League right now...Castellanos, Gerrit Cole, Manny Machado, Zach Wheeler, Jackie Bradley, and more...

I've read that many times...ever since I saw him play, I've been following his career quite a bit.

Get him on an ROMLB with a "2012 Futures Game MVP" inscription if he'll do it. I'm going to see Gerrit Cole tomorrow...pretty psyched.

Good luck!

Alright I'll try the inscription, any idea on what I should try to get Wheeler on? As for Cole, already saw him, signed for everyone, but did ask you name, and does write it on the item. No problem for me, as it was just going in the pc! Thanks for the input!!

I'm going down to Erie the 28th/29th to watch him play. I'm also getting his autograph on a Futures Game baseball and a OMLB. Should be fun.

Let us know how tonights game goes.
