In case you missed it, we were in the 2015 WS.

Really solid overall. Even a few of the senior signs were decent. Baty, Wolf, Allen and McIntosh was a good HS haul.

Definitely better than the major league stuff.

Only missing out on Maldonado and Beck were disappointing to me. Barco was a pipe dream after Allen signed.

Beck just signed.... so your disappointment is no longer warranted. :)

I wish Mets GM Van Wagenen was as good at making trades as he is at signing draft picks — that seems to be his forte.

I must say, on paper, which is all we can judge it on currently, this draft has been a big success for Brodie.

Allen, Baty, Wolf, Beck, McIntosh, Mangum, Ritter, Duplaintis...pretty nice haul.

...even some of the fringe seniors are somewhat interesting.
