Honestly, this is a wasted pick. His Cape Cod numbers are pretty bad too and he has virtually no power.

Looks like he was a former football player

Sounds like a money saving pick to me

Nobody goes to Stanford to major in sports. He played sports and got an education. Played football, so he's likely a good athlete. Power could come. I wouldn't call him a "wasted pick", more of a take a chance on type. Maybe they save a little bit too, but I don't think he'll be a huge underslot. Maybe 50 or 100 K under.

His power is his strongest tool.

Might not mean anything but there was a rumor the mets might take a catcher early.

Catcher's were picked 141, 148, 151, 153 and 155 before the mets picked 157. They might have had their eye on one of those 5.

Matt Winaker is another bet on a Stanford product. Athletic, strong kid, played mostly 1B but will play OF as a pro. Power emerged in 2017.

That is music to my ears. No idea how he knows this tho. I hope it's more than merely MLB listing him as an OFer.

They had plenty of shots to grab a C.

Quote:
A former prep quarterback, Winaker had two modest seasons for Stanford before helping lead the Cardinal to a big finish and second place in the Pacific-12 Conference as a junior. He runs well enough for the outfield, but Stanford likes agile defenders at first base, and Winaker qualifies. He led the team with eight home runs after hitting just three in his first two seasons. He has some present strength in his 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame and controls the strike zone, with more walks (98) than strikeouts (81) in every college season. He hit a soft .270 in the Cape Cod League last summer, but his power improvement this spring stands out, especially considering all eight of his homers came in Pac-12 play.

Boy, Matt Winaker has a sweet-looking lefthanded swing. Like Brodey, I’d be happy to draft that guy — he’s gonna hit. 2-run HR; 8-0 Stanford

From June 1st.

Aren't Sickels' underlings basically failed message board posters?
