Roxbury Latin (Boston) lefty Jack McGeary's signability is the big question now, with one rampant rumor saying he's looking for $2 million to buy him away from his scholarship to Stanford. Some clubs who don't pick until the late first round or the sandwich, including the Mets (who don't pick until No. 44), are still sending the heat in to see him on the thought that he might fall.

• Speaking of the Mets, they've indicated they're more than willing to go over slot at No. 44. The commissioner's office leaned heavily on them to not sign draft-and-follow Pedro Beato last spring, costing them a pretty good prospect who ultimately got $1 million from Baltimore in the sandwich round.

He looks like Tom Glavine Jr. to me, I am glad the Mets are willing to spend some money in this years draft. They can make a real impact with all the picks they have in the draft.

Why did the commish lean heavy on us not to sign Beato? And why did we listen to them?

Hmm...............

I'm for it.

When was the last time Stanford has produced a great pitcher since Moose and Black Jack?

I think its b/c Omar has never really had the type of finances with draft picks ever- remember Montreal always took the "safe", signable draft pick- and he's probably learned from it that he can bend the rules.

Also because the Commish gave him his first job as GM and Omar probably though he owed the Commish one. But I feel once Omar notice that the Yanks still went out of their way and spent money that all bets are off.

Geesh, he was born right around the time Straw swung at Keith, lol makes me feel old.

Wow he's throwing 91 now and at 18 and 6'3 his projection could be great. According to that link he's already got a great curve and working on a CU.

I'd be thrilled if we nabbed him with our first pick :D
