a reading from the book of Bennington
Heres some info on ESD's cousin Dan McDonald (pictured above) who was drafted by the mets today in case anyone was at all interested.
Scouting Report: McDonald entered the spring as a player that many scouts in the Mid-Atlantic had pegged as a potential riser. He'd shown above-average velocity in high school as well as last summer in the Cape Cod League, when he posted a 1.04 ERA and struck out 18 in 17 relief innings. He also has athleticism, another reason scouts were optimistic about him. While McDonald's velocity was climbing back toward 92 mph as the Pirates' season was winding down, but has pitched more in the 88-90 mph range. He'll flash an average slider at times, though he tends to get around it. McDonald has good feel for pitching and solid-average command, but with limited room for additional growth and mediocre success this spring, he probably won't be drafted until the fourth- to seventh-round range.
