Gammons thinks that we may not know all the signings/non signings until later today. So I guess there is still an outside chance that we signed Magnifico. :P

I'd be shocked after going 500k on Dotson and 900 on Matz ..

Andy Seiler revisits Damien Magnifico:

Quote:
Damien Magnifico, RHP, Howard JC (TX), Freshman

Magnifico, like Washington and Eliopoulos, enters junior college with more notoriety than your average JuCo recruit. An unsigned fifth-rounder of the Mets from 2009, Magnifico relies on a plus fastball to dominate hitters. However, due to having such a plus fastball, his secondary stuff lags behind. That was one of the reasons why the Mets were reluctant to pony up his asking price a year ago, as he was asking somewhere in the neighborhood of $900,000 to $1 million. As a freshman, he’s not expected to fill the number one role on a team that had one of baseball’s most historic seasons last year in a run to a championship at the Junior College World Series. That role goes to Burch Smith, written about below. However, Magnifico is expected to carry his weight as Howard’s number two starter, and the workload will be a large step up from his prep days. His build isn’t the best for durability, as he “only” stands at 6’1’’ and carries 190 pounds, so one of the questions that needs to be answered this year is whether he can stand up to a more grueling pitching schedule for one of the top JuCo teams in the nation. I expect him to have a large amount of success due to the great history of Howard’s coaching system, so I see him improving his draft slot to perhaps the second or third round. He’ll also have the leverage of being a college freshman, so I could see another scenario where he asks for seven figures again. All told, though, Magnifico’s a solid talent that could be a number two starter in the big leagues if everything pans out.

It took Howard (Texas) JC just two games to suffer their first loss after winning their first 57 games last year on their way to winning the national championship, and according to a story in the Big Spring Herald, freshman right-hander Damien Magnifico, an unsigned fifth-round pick of the Mets last year, is battling elbow soreness that is keeping him on the sidelines for the time being.

Hummmm! Overthrowing just a bit this summer?

Magnifico was 81st on Perfect Game USA's top 100 JuCo players.

Although I don't think he threw a single pitch all season. Can't find any stats on him.

I didn't think he was worth anything CLOSE to what he wanted. I said the same on Matz, too, fwiw.

I wanted Haniger/Gunhouse over the M&M boys.

I wanted Matz, but I didn't think he was worth what he ultimately got. I had him more in the 350-500k range, tops 600k. You can go check his draft thread. I'm not pissed we signed him, I'm just sayin, he got more then what I believe he was worth.

Right ..

But you basically said you would've rather signed the 31st and 42nd round picks than the 2nd round and 5th round .. sounds pretty silly, no?
