I'm curious how Vientos compares to Gatewood at the same stage of development. Both are supersized SS's we "knew" wouldn't play there with projected plus power

For one, Gatewood was like two years older, so major advantage to Vientos there.

I'm really talking about the view of the two guys at the same stage. Don't forget Gatewood had some 1st overall pick hype coming into 2014. They seem to be of similar builds and even sort of look alike. I'm not discounting the difference in age.

They probably already have an agreement.

His throwing motion looks very violent to me. Reminds me of Jose.

Kind of interesting they announced him as a 3b. The Mets usually wait.

Jim Duquette said in Pre Game that he was the Mets first round pick. But when Peterson fell they snagged him

Were ecstatic he was still there

Pretty scary if Vientos was going to be their 1st rd pick. I mean, I liked him, but not in that neighborhood.
