Hi there, My name is Eddie Kunz and I am relief pitcher and its my first full year with the New York Mets. I am from Portland, Oregon and lived there all my life, born and raised. Went to Parkrose High School in Portland and went to Oregon State University for three years till I got drafted in 2007. Won 2 National Championships with Oregon State in 06, 07! After winning the second championship I went to short season in Brooklyn, NY to start of my Pro career and stayed there the rest of the summer.
Now I am down in Arizona again for my second season in the Arizona Fall League. My first year was last year I was on the Scottsdale Scorpians, that was a great experiance for me and helped me move far in the Mets organization. Now back again I am on the Peoria Saguaros for year two. Last year I learned how to control my pitches and get my slider on track! Which worked and got me to start in AA this year and 2 weeks in the Big leagues in August. This year in the Fall Ball I am working on being more consistent with all my pitches and learning that the game is not in a hurry, I am a pitcher and I control the whole game. We started our season two days ago. I pitched in the 9th in the first game, felt really good and got 2 strikeouts and only gave up 1 hit. We won the game 9 to 3. Our second game was last night and we won that one to 10 to 7. Our team is very good and we have alot of good guys from all teams, (White Sox, Cardinals, Padres, Nationals and of course the Mets). More to come later next week.
