Draft taking break, Callis raving about Mets draft so far. Loves Baty and Allen, likes Wolf and Mangum. Mayo says Mets most likely know number to get Allen signed or they wouldn't have taken him and they know they can get it.

Can they save a million on Baty? How much does Allan budge from the reported $4M ask?

I’m not sure if it will work out ... but there seems to at least be a real plan being implemented that fits into a long term philosophy

Pay big on high risk high reward talent ... and spread crumbs to the rest of the top 10 picks (hope for a diamond in the rough)

UMBC submariner isn’t a senior, but could make for an interesting sign.

Abilene Christian catcher Luis Trevino had a monster year. He’s a RS-senior.

I knew Kirby was gaining steam before the season even began, but if you told me he'd be a no-doubt first rounder, and Brnovich would fall to the 8th.... I'd definitely have had to question your sanity.

Giants took Grant McCray. His father Rodney is thr minor leaguer who crashed through the wall for imo, the greatest baseball blooper ever.

Think Rodney may have even been a Mets farmhand at the time.

I’ll be pretty happy with either Will Robertson or Matt Dyer in rd 3.

So Robertson went one pick ahead of Mangum in rd 4.

So far have to like what they've done. Grabbing Matt Dyer here in rd 10 would be icing. Can't fathom why he hasn't gotten popped yet.

People keep making a lot of hay about having to draft college srs, but really what leverage does a jr have? Of course they an go back to school, but most want to get their pro careers started rather than put it off for another year. Yes, Mangum was the exception last year but that doesn't happen a lot.

They don't have the leverage to turn down slot or near-slot.

They do have the leverage to turn down pennies on the dollar.

Let me preface this by saying I've never heard of any of these guys.

But it's amazing how these guys don't even know a guy like Taylor Floyd. He has 50 IP, 78 K on a Texas Tech team that is playing in the Super Regionals. You'd think they'd know who he is, no?

I would expect the Mets to be very aggressive in drafting HS players and maybe draft eligible sophomores with high asking prices today. If somehow the deal to Allan falls apart the club would have a lot of allotment to spend even losing Allan's pick's slot.
