the glowing remarks making this pick seem like a slam dunk. I'm sold.

I'm coming around on the pick more and more after all the feedback from experts and the like.

I honestly don't like the pick. I thought Renfroe and McGuire had higher upsides. Maybe JP Crawford as well.

Man I always look for the acer stamp of approval. This is kind of a downer. He seems a pretty athletic kid with a sweet swing and good makeup. Maybe his tools look quiet when compared with Renfroe or McGuire? Or do you think he lacks tools?

I preferred others but I like this pick. Potential plus hit and power, excellent arm, excellent glove at 1B, some physical projectability (not even 18 yet, by the way), great makeup, was ranked around our position by all the top prospect gurus I trust. Works for me.

Holy crap. The #Mets take a masher in Dom Smith. The kid can swing. @JHamrahi wants to spend a night in his muscular arms.

I don't know. Maybe I'm under-rating his bat, but I guess I just don't see why people think it's so special. It might just be that there isn't any good video of him on the internet.

But I see a 6-foot HS first baseman, probably a little slow for an OF corner, and I don't see physically where he looks like he's going to be that much better a hitter than some of the guys with more premium positions (like McGuire or Crawford) or the more proven top college bats (Peterson and Renfroe). Renfroe had both a high ceiling bat and strong defensivive tools and athleticism.

I don't HATE the pick, I just would have had him down a few spots lower.
