I don't want to waste a high draft pick on a second baseman. pitching, pitching, and more pitching.


I'm with Ed on this one. With our money, Omar can always trade for a quality second baseman, or sign one who is a FA. Young elite pitching is rarely on the trade market and when it is the cost is a kings ransom. Also, it is possible (though still not likely) that either Joe Savery or Cole St.Clair could slip to the first half of the supplemental round. Both are hard-throwing southpaws with off-the-charts competitiveness. St.Clair is more the overpowering guy and intimidator (with his 6'5" 225 lb frame, snarl and high leg kick), but also features four "plus" pitches. Savery is the team leader and is more the pitchers pitcher, focusing more on mixing his 3 - 4 quality pitches and working location. However, he does throw a 93 mph fastball. And while neither has as sexy a nickname as The Shark, Savery's "Hollywood" (just look at a picture of him) and St.Clair's "CSC" or "Goose" (yes, after the Gossage one) are not bad. I'm heading down to Houston this weekend to catch the Rice-Tulane series and will be sitting next to St.Clair's dad, who I've developed an off-line correspondence with. I'll query him re. who's already shown interest and where Cole currently expects to go from his ongoing conversations with scouts. If I run into Savery's parents I will do the same. In fact, I might run into Joe and Cole in person at a Monday evening Baseball dinner before I head back to Chicago on Tuesday.

My philosophy has always been to take the 50 hardest throwing pitchers on the Board.

But I'm wavering a little this year.

We could really use some thunder.

Drafting based on needs in the MLB draft is stupid.

BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE.

Would anybody be interested in doing a NYFS mock draft each team gets its own GM?

High school pitchers in the first 35 rounds - after that, whatever the Mets do is fine by me.

Only if the sandwich round is included since I want to see who one the board wants the Mets to pick.

I follow the Draft every year.

If I get the first 5 right, I consider it an accomplishment.

I listened to the first 35 rounds last year lol Mock draft is really pretty impossible give or take a few guys early or some "connections" like a team with a lot of guys from the same agent. Every year we take low ceiling college guys WAY too early just to stock brooklyn, hopefully this year with no first rounder we shoot for some harder signs.
