I just don't see any way Reynolds (or Rodriguez) don't head directly to Savannah. The math just doesn't work.

Cecchini 100% a SS (at least at this stage)
Evans (Could be a SS or 2b but odds are they want him to begin his career at SS)
Kaupe (Already said he's playing 2b not SS)
Reynolds (DePo flat out said he's playing SS)
Rodriguez (Can play both)

So that's 5 players all for the middle infield for 4 sports (Kingsport/BK). All reasonably high picks (I guess it's POSSIBLE Rodriguez isn't starting but a 10th round college senior generally is a BK starter).



What about that kid we signed out of Mexico last year that was a rave on these boards for a month or so, what was his name? Juan Carlos Berroa? or something?

Kid showed surprising pop for his size and looked excelent at SS with his range and a great arm.

He's gotta play somewhere too..



Makes my Reynolds idea even more possible! lol

Reynolds put up pretty big numbers at a major school. At 3b he's likely not going to get too far in this organization with the guys ahead of him but if he can somehow stick at SS or 2b (or play both at an acceptable level) he can be a surprise. I'm not expecting a star but I think he may surprise (or not).



He'd have to.

I don't want to be mean, but this is the guy who always bored us when they took him on Day 3.

I don't remember the Mets taking a guy considered to be a top 100 prospect in Day 3. MLB.com had him #95 just a week before the draft (I copied and pasted the reports to read on my cell last week via e-mail-

Quote:

Matt Reynolds
Rank: 95
Arkansas, Junior
Height: 6'1", Weight: 198
Position: 3B
DOB: 12/03/1990
Bats: R, Throws: R
Playing for a top-notch program in one of the best college conferences in the country, Reynolds has been seen by plenty of scouts. And while he might not be among the top tier of college bats in this class, he has some skills that could translate at the next level.
With a balanced set-up at the plate, Reynolds has a good approach and hits line drives. He doesn’t have a ton of power, mostly to the gaps, and is more consistent to the pull side. Without average power, Reynolds will have to learn how to hit to all fields. He’s a heads-up baserunner who will swipe some bases even without particularly good speed. He’s a very good defender, with the potential to be above average with his arm and fielding to go along with solid average range.
Reynolds plays mostly third, but has seen time at shortstop, and that kind of flexibility will only help his value. If the bat doesn’t progress, he could have a very good future as a utility type.





I'm not gonna pretend I "loved' the pick or the entire Met draft but-

I don't see either of them ever playing in a league with more than 1 'A' in it.


You don't think he see's even AA? I'll bet you a Francisco Pena jersey and a Miguel Pinango bobblehead doll (I'll get one made) he does.. :mrgreen:

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

It would probably cost you less to give me Miguel Pinango.

And of course he should make it to AA.

Joe Bonfe made it to AA.

I just don't think he'll hold onto a job if he gets there.

Watching Reynolds right now against Baylor and some here are severly underestimating him. He looks like he has a good bat with very good speed.

Reynolds sounds like the true "laughable" pick pick. The other 3 at least can be debated. This is a really poor pick.

Nmigliore, be fair. The initial write-ups we were seeing basically made him sound like Soupy. I've warmed to the pick as well, actually, as long as they're planning on playing him up the middle.

I'd start him in Savannah. A college bat drafted that early should move quickly anyway, so he's going to be in Savannah or St. Lucie to start the year regardless. I don't see any harm in just starting him in full season ball in the first place.

Yeah and I've changed my view since we took him. I posted the reasons why. At 3b he's a pretty poor pick 3rd round. Now they are saying 2b is possible. At 3b he'll never be a starter for the Mets.

Being able to modify one's opinion when confronted with evidence is the benchmark of intelligence. Metro should get points for changing his mind, not a hard time.

Northway, you don't have to take it so serious. Metro and I go at it like this all the time on AIM and the board. It's just playful, not meant to be anything more than that. ;)

I didn't actually mean it that seriously, and I know I tease about the flip flopping just as much as anyone. I guess I just get annoyed at the notion that changing one's mind is somehow a bad thing, and baseball seems to suffer from this sentiment more than most institutions. Case in point: Ike Davis is still in the bigs.
