Speaking of George Harrison, this is my latest acquisition I still have a ‘79 Gretsch Country Gentleman that I’ve had almost 30 years, but I’ve been wanting forever the exact model George played on The Ed Sullivan show and the rest of ‘64. I sold 3 guitars recently to be able to get this one funded. It’s the reissue of the ‘62 model he had.
Been working on the solo to All My Loving a lot lately.
And here’s my old one from a show about 6 years ago.
I went McKenna/Stauffer. Nevin is a 1B with underwhelming offense. Cumberlad is fringy defensively and underwhelming offensively. Pop is coming off major surgery and never been in AAA. None of those guys are spring chickens either. I suspect it could be Bannon/Pop but I went McKenna/Stauffer.
99% sure I'm wrong, but I went with Cumberland. I liked the reports on him when we first got him and it seems like he actually gained in Bowie this year based on the short stuff I saw.
McKenna's enticing here for sure. You still hope that he can gain some consistency at the plate and let his speed play up. He'll be in the majors at some point for sure, but I just think it's as a 4th/5th outfielder.
But you can make a strong case for Bannon and Pop here for sure. They're here or close to here and might be able to stick on the ML team. That has value. Stauffer's still an unknown to me. Has some arm talent, I think, but not sure if he's developed anything. Heck, here you can make a case for Nevin too, so it seems like we're into another tier in a way.
