Normally day 3 gets me excited for those HS players we pick that might get a bigger bonus(over the 125,000 allowed) but I don't see that likely happening much this year with the money spent on Allan. But he's likely a better talent then anyone we would get now anyways.

Yeah, I'll take Allan. When is the last time one of those late round HS picks actually worked out (for the Mets)? Serious question, because I honestly don't know.


If by worked out you mean made it to the major leagues, none in the last several years. Jordan Humphreys has probably climbed the prospect ladder the most but injuries have hurt him. Christian James has been decent in the lower levels so far. That's about it. Extreme crap shoot. Which is why Allan is well worth it.

About what I expected. No major leaguers and a pair of righties with pretty low ceilings.

Allan, on the other hand, was considered by some to be the top prep arm, right?

I mean, it should be a no brainer as to what the better choice is.

You can take a chance on a guy that might end up anchoring a rotation or you can take a chance on five guys and one might become your #4 starter.

The problem is the system is rigged so that you only get to take 1 or 2 shots instead of 40.

No question about that. I hate the draft setup with the pool money, allotment, etc. Any system that encourages teams to take low-ceiling, borderline professional talents over legitimate prospects is broken.

In the old Spend-As-Much-Or-As-Little-As-You-Like All Allan probably wouldn't have been on the Board at 12.

Historically bad...? Not sure I agree there, but there is still talent to take a risk on rounds 11-40...just will have a difficult time finding it or signing it...one or the other...

You may be right, cause some of them look pretty interesting, but I think half of them will sign for 10K. 2 or 3 might push 100, the guy picked in the 5th round might get close to slot. I think 500-600 K is about what rounds 4-10 end up costing.

As for the top 3. I hope Brodie has a plan to sign all 3. It's a huge fumble if the 3rd pick goes unsigned and wasted. Less of a fumble if that happens with the 2nd pick cause that one they keep and can use next year, 1 spot later, but that's no big.

I like Brodie's aggressiveness, even if I'm not a big fan of paying 60 plus million for Cano, but I appreciate his approach.

Mets take Duplantis. Lukas and Dashwood also taken in the 12th.

Rangers popped Anderson in the 13th.

Yankees, noted developers of strike out artist relievers, take Alvarez in the 13th.

Veliz snagged by the Angels in the 15th.

Grande to the D'Backs in round 17.

Who are your favorite picks after Round 10?

(take into account sign-ability as a factor)

Also, for those who are not draft-guru's, if the Mets don't sign either Wolf or Allen .. does that actually free up money to possibly sign one of these longshot picks like Hunter Barco?

I don't think we drafted a single college player who will ever see Syracuse.

I started by saying Binghamton but I decided to hedge my bet.

I don't think so. They lose that slot allowance if they don't sign a guy from the first 10 rounds, so no extra money to spend. They extra money comes into play when they save money signing those first 10 guys. .

You’re way to cynical. These guys are young and resilient. They should stay healthy long enough fir Brodie to finalize the Miggy Cabrera trade next winter.
