Emaus Proving He Belongs on Team

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  Brad Emaus ...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Rule 5 pick Brad Emaus went 4-for-4 with a homer and a double Thursday in the rout of the Cardinals.

Emaus, who was leading the Mets' second base competition , may have wrapped up a starting job today. 

He was hitting just .216/.341/.270 entering the game, but now he's all of the way up to .293.

As predicted, I said  Emaus and Murphy will lead the way at 2B. Brad Emaus sees himself as a gap hitter with double power and the Mets broadcast booth compares him to Ty Wigginton. I like the combo of Murphy and Emaus because they are two hard working kids who like to compete and are hungry to win.
