I had an interesting conversation today with a scout of a major league team interested in a few of the Connecticut Defenders.

The scout mentioned he had wanted to see Pablo Sandoval. He added he saw Sandoval a few years ago and was unimpressed. Having heard about the work Steve Decker did with Sandoval and the way the catcher had been hitting in recent years, Sandoval had garnered interest.

Also on the scout's radar: Joey Martinez, Daryl Maday and Ben Snyder.

Is it worth having Witter work with Decker? Adam's bat seems to say yes.

I can see Martinez and a few other pitchers but Snyder and Maday have yet to be successful above single A. Maday hasnt really had a chance due to being "shuttled" but Snyder hasnt shown the ability to keep pitches down. How about we bring Decker here. Maybe he can teach theese guys to be contact hitters and not swinging for the fence outs.
