Moreover, they signed a total of 7 position players! 7! 3 OFers, 1 3Bman, 1 2Bman, and 2 Catchers. That's it. And 14 arms. And people wonder why they don't ever develop adequate position players... How can you when you draft predominantly pitchers year after year? To be fair, that's down from the past few years from around 11 or 12 but this year was especially poor. Just 21 players signed?! Just 7 position players?! I really don't like that math.

I think that has more to do with not having to fill short season rosters. Generally, a lot of position players taken on the third day are just taken to fill a roster spot on Brooklyn on Kingsport. But this year, we didn't have the need for such players. We even had to place polished college players like Mazeika and Kaczmarski in Kingsport.


Mets sign more guys than usual in DSL, so that's probably part of it. They even had a college guy backing up Sanchez at catcher in GCL.
