Straight out of a Halloween party is the Top Gun Jersey’s from the Portland Sea Dogs.
They’re cool enough for Maverick and Goose. The weird thing is that Top Gun is 30 years old, older than a lot of younger people who enjoy MiLB games and me, but these jerseys are still cool enough for us to like. I have seen Top Gun, but it feels like the experience is way different when you’re old enough to remember it coming out in Movie Theaters.
It’ll be akin to when Star Wars VII has its 3oth Anniversary; I’ll be able to remember when it came out in movie theaters and had a sort of different appreciation for the 3oth anniversary of it.
The Portland Sea Dogs are the current Double-A Affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, having been their affiliate since 2003 and play in the Eastern League. Today’s featured prospects are Andrew Benintendi and Teddy Stankiewicz.
Andrew Benintendi, OF
Benintendi has the potential to be a regular everyday center fielder for the Red Sox. He has the tools to play all outfield positions, but he lacks the raw power needed to play in the corners. He also requires raw batting power and plate discipline but has all the makings of a future major league centerfielder.
Teddy Stankiewicz, RHP
Stankiewicz projects to be a four or five starter for various reasons. Reasons which include that he has consistency issues, but throws strikes. He lacks the flash needed to be in the top-middle of the rotation, but throws strikes and gets outs with his four-pitch repertoire. Has pitching smarts that make up for his lack of flash and ability to get quick outs.
