If Allan is willing to take $2.5 mil, how on earth did he fall to the third round?

Big difference between risking your 1st Round pool money and your 3rd Round Pool money.

It's also a game a of chicken. You can ask for a lot more in the 1st Round than you can in the 3rd.

But what about, like, the second round? $2.5 mil is perfectly normal in that range.

Allan supposedly fell as far as he did because he was asking for $4 mil -- and now the Mets are confident they'll get him at $2.5?? I don't know.

I think they have some money they can tempt him with...yes.

They also have a lesser pike to try Barco...then if all else fails, there are other tough signing HSers waiting.

I thought it was a good risk strategy to try to pry three first round talents into one draft.

Updated to account for Wolf's actual bonus and some of the recent roster assignments.

Thanks, sluger. This thread saves my life every year. Much appreciated.

Watching the bonuses coming out, I am more and more in favor of my increased slot /minimum bonus floors idea...

Edit: apparently my grammar has the summer off.

They got it done.

I'd assume at this point the only other guy signing will be Duplantis.

So nice to see something go right. This will certainly be a boost to the system adding 3 young talents like they did in this draft. Hopefully we can add some more to the system with the IF signing period and I assume through trades at the deadline.

Yep. I'm cautiously optimistic that the state of the farm system will be much improved this time next year. With the continued development of Maurico, Vientos and SWR; the Alvarez, Hernandez and Lugo trio in the GCL (hopefully Valdez isn't too far behind); addition of Baty, Allan and Wolf via the draft; #26 IFA Alexander Ramirez likely to sign with the Mets; and at least a couple decent (or better) prospects added by moving Wheeler, Frazier, etc. at the deadline, the system has a chance to improve by leaps and bounds.

This doesn't include the return of Kilome in 2020; a guy like Szapucki having a Kay-like step forward in Year 2 after coming back from injury; Newton figuring things out and maximizing the raw ability; and lesser prospects, but still potential major leaguers, like Dibrell, Cortes, Ali Sanchez working their way up the ranks.

This is all an optimistic take, of course, as any or all of these guys could fizzle out at any time, but I still think there's a lot to like.

That is part of what the Mets must focus on. The other part is strengthening the team's Minor League player development program.

At no point in the next 5 years will our farm system be as strong, or churn out as many good/great players as it did from 2012-2016.

and struck out once a game and people are talking like he's the second coming. Get real people. When you have a chance to get the best reliever in the game who's only 24 and give up Kelenic in the deal, you MAKE that deal. Stop with the nonsense.
