I do know they took someone they liked here, and someone they wanted to take.

Are we really complaining about an 18th round pick?

Are we the only team drafting college seniors in the draft?

I don't get the negativity.

The average team signs ~2 high schoolers after round 10, fwiw.

Isn't the goal to be better than average?

Yes, just not saying it's unusual if we only sign like 4 high schoolers.

And after the trades last year, we might be looking to sign more players this year.

So if we sign 3 HS players, we are above average?

I'd give them a better grade than that based on Dunn alone. People saying he's a potential top 10 talent. Add several potential nice picks between #31-Round 14. I think they're in C+ range at the absolutely lowest, possibly in the Bs.

Well, since that post they did some cool things. I'd say right now it's a full letter grade improvement.

18th rounder Adam Atkins is a late convert to side-armer, sometimes you luck out on guys like that #Mets

This is a poor effort on the imitation. Its completely redundant.
