Ball flew off his bat in those videos. But man that's a lot of moving part in his swing. Hope he signs. Some professional coaching can go a long way towards cleaning up that swing and improving his receiving/arm.

Orangewood Christian catcher Tomas Nido, who set a Central Florida record last season when he hit 17 home runs, was taken by the New York Mets in the eighth round. Nido has signed with Florida State.

"A couple of teams told me I would get picked earlier in the day, but that didn't happen," said Nido, who hit .477 with 17 doubles and seven homers this season. "I knew the Mets were a team that always was watching me. I am excited."

I knew the Mets certainly had him on the radar, and i know he really wanted to be a Met after the pre draft workout. I really think there is a good chance we could get him to sign. I know guys that know him, and guys that cover him from the FSU end, beat writers and the like, so i'll keep a close eye on his situation.

As for how he might turn out, dude has all world power, and if he can even be half decent as a catcher, his power will carry him all the way, as a power hitting catcher doesn't even have to hit .250 to stick in the majors.

He retweeted Joe's tweet about him signing and going to Kingsport. I would have to believe that means he's signed. Awesome!
