I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

Picking up where we left off.

Law on Curbelo: "He's a late-first or comp-round talent, though if someone thinks he can play shortstop longer than we do, he could go earlier than that."

Outside of Manning, who probably won't be there and would probably scare us off if he is, that would be a perfect 'I stayed up for this?' night......

I'm really not feeling it for Reynolds. I think he more fits the general mold of college OFer that some think the Mets could gravitate toward. To me, after the first 4 OFers: Rutherford, Ray, Lewis, Moniak, I would prefer they skipped down to the group that includes Quinn, Grier, Woodman, Fraley. And I really like Capel from the prep side but I don't know how strong his commit is to Texas.

Reynolds seems like the sort of profile that the Cards like, and that alone should perk my interest so logically I prob should be fine with Reynolds at 31. I guess I'll have to talk myself into that one. :D

I'm really hoping for a draft for need where the Mets eschew BPA candidates left and right.

I'd go catcher first round, 3rd base comp round (preferably a RHH to platoon with Kelly Johnson), 1st base 2nd round (can be a weaker fielder that Loney can replace late), a RHH platoon corner OFer in the 3rd to pair with Conforto and then maybe a sinker/slider 3 quarter arm slot setup type in the 4th.

Trendsetters. Do it.
