BA #310 (exactly where we took him)

Quote:
After two seasons at South Carolina hitting in the low- to mid-.200s, Cone exploded this spring, establishing himself as one of the most consistent hitters in the SEC and in the country. The outfielder set a school record with a 31-game hitting streak, coming in the heart of SEC play, and he was batting .357/.467/.500 as of early June. Those numbers may very well catch the eye of more statistically inclined draft evaluators, as Cone's raw tools don't stand out. At 6 feet, 170 pounds, he's not a physical specimen. An average runner, Cone was displaced in center field by teammate Dom Thompson-Williams late in the season and is more suited for left than right. Cone has obvious feel for the barrel, but his future is likely as a fourth outfielder.

There's a new Cone in New York — @Mets take Gene Cone. Had a 31-game hitting streak for the Gamecocks. Not super toolsy but can clearly hit.

Mets got some upside players and built good minor league depth

Great news.

I didn't know they were doing other things than the draft.

I don't see many upside picks. Out of the picks today, maybe the first two and the two tall pitchers. Cone is certainly not an upside pick.

They definitely got guys that were high on their board. Guys who their scouts liked. And we know they just grabbed the best guys with how the draft fell which is great news.

There's a great chance that we grabbed guys who our draft think have a chance to help us in various ways!
