I like the way he finishes his delivery. That sort of follow thru is becoming rarer nowadays.

I think this kid will be a tough sign. Might cost 7 figures.

ooh, highly doubt it. Not saying he's a lock to sign but I don't think it's going to take that kind of dough.

His breaking ball was measured at 2800 rpm.

A lefty with really good arm strength. A power fastball. A very-hard-to-hit slider. We feel it's a 'wipeout' pitch. We were very excited to get Thomas in this round.

He's talking in this video like he's already agreed to terms. Great job by the Mets getting this kind of upside in the 5th round.

"The Dwyer left-handed pitcher said Tuesday he would forgo college and sign with the Mets, which drafted him in the fifth round with the 149th pick on Day 2 of the MLB draft. Szapucki was the only local high school baseball player selected on the second day of the draft.

'When [you] get an opportunity like this, it is hard to pass up," Szapucki said. "The Mets have been known for developing young pitchers and getting them to the big leagues. That was really eye-catching for me.'"

That's what I meant on the 1st page. I see it more with young lacrosse players (all my boys gave up baseball for lax), but you also see it a ton in football.

A lot of top kids get offers from colleges in 9th and 10th grade, and of course say yes, because they're excited to have that opportunity at all. But by senior year, when they sit down and think about where they really want to go, they end up de-committing from that original college and going somewhere else. And in baseball, where you actually get the option to get paid to play, that pull is even stronger...
