Come on, take Mickey Gasper. Great catcher name if nothing more.

A quarter are seniors, including half of first 2 days.

I'm usually the glass half full type, but this draft is a punt.

What exactly do you like about this class?

The fact that the Cyclones should be one of the most experienced and favorite teams?

The Mets strategy clearly changed when Vientos was available for their second pick. I'm guessing he is way over slot, forcing the Mets to draft all those seniors on day 2. The Braves, albeit positioned differently in the draft, took prep guys in rounds 2 and 3 and then took 6 seniors in a row to close day 2.

One guy shouldn't impact the entire class like that.

You want a strong overall class.

Who was the last drafted senior that made an impact for us?

Den friggin' Decker?

When you have the chance to walk away with one more first round caliber player than you had first round picks, it's automatically a B draft. Add two or three seasoned college picks that have physical ability to translate to the show and it's a B+. Really the only thing keeping ths from being an A draft will be can we get any of the post-10th HS to sign.

You can't compare this to drafts in other sports with a desire for immediate satisfaction. Hell, you can't even really compare us to a team in the top 3 or 4 picks because of the immense edge their signing pools give them in drafting big names late.
