“My phone rang and (the voice) told me, ‘Congratulations.’ So I said, ‘What happened?’” said Simon, a lefty who graduated from Ball on Saturday and went to the Mets in the 11th round.

I would have figured there would have been a deal in place for a round 11 player

The Mets have more QBs than the Jets!

Still very possible that he told the team prior to the draft that he would be willing to sign for X amount of money.

It makes more sense in the context of the article. He was trying to keep his mind off the draft. I get that.

My thought process is that since round 11 is a totally different day, the Mets (in the past) lined up someone who they thought they could sign slightly over slot, so the player should have been expecting it. Maybe that's my own imagination.

Wow! Didn't see that one coming for that much at all. Thought he might get some extra cash but that's most of our leftover pool money.

Oh, I agree with you, but the mets probably line up a few guys they like at #11 cause they don't know who's going to still be on board, so I don't think they can give him a guarantee. They can have a pre-set amount and he probably knows which teams have interest, but he probably doesn't know which team will take him or if he'll go in round 11.

Not quite Bashlor but definitely Oswalt territory, as the scouting report doesn't quite match the bonus.
