Why? They were very open in saying they thought had he not lost playing time to a hammy they didn't think he'd have gotten out of the 1st round. If they wanted to get him for less than slot they needed to play the game of not overselling him. Instead they openly said he'd been underrated.


Yeah the whole slot/underslot/overslot thing has a lot less to do with BA's rankings, I would think, and much more to do with negotiating leverage. Its not a free agency situation so the leverages are different on either side, but if you have a kid who values the college experience, why are they going to do you a favor when they know EXACTLY what you are alloted to sign them?

"Hey, I know you have 1.2m to use to sign me, but I saw that BA actually ranked me for the slot value of only 900k, so I'll take that" <---- I don't think this has ever been said at the negotiating table.

it's pretty much all about leverage and pre-arranged negotiations. In cases where players lack leverage (college seniors) we see the teams take advantage of them nearly every time. This was a case where Desmond (or Lindsay - he's got one of those names that goes both ways that's going to take me a while to remember which is which) could have exerted a lot of leverage especially knowing the Mets didn't have a 1st pick but you have to assume there was a 'soft agreement' prior to the draft which he honored here.

Love this pick, considering no first rounder. High upside kid, great student, which tells me a ton when he has UNC tuition built into the contract.

He's going to be fun, I think.
