The school who has won two of the last six College World Series recruited him to play for their program?

I don't know if "excited" is really the best word -- I'm pleasantly surprised that they somehow signed a guy away from Vanderbilt for not much more than the slot bonus. If Vanderbilt likes him, he's gotta have at least a bit of talent.

Now, of course, he's still a lotto ticket, and from everything that's been said about him Jake Mangum would be a pretty good outcome here.

According to Baseball America, McIntosh bonus was $125K.

Kinda hope he doesn't sign. MLB writeup says he'd be the first player from his HS to go to a division I school. Also has said it would be "a dream" to play for Vandy. Think he passes.


isn't a bigger dream to play in the bigs


Sounds like he's realistic in his expectations and dreams, which is a good thing rather than foregoing one certain dream for a $100K bonus + the chance to chase a very unlikely one.


I guess his dreams were to play in bigs

He gets 125k plus they pay for college when and if he goes to school one day. Makes sense to me, surprised most don't do it.

Baseball America lists winners/losers of colleges after the baseball draft. Vanderbilt is listed as a loser. In it, Vanderbilt lost three of its tops rated prospect. McIntosh is not listed as an FYI from the list of three.

This should surprise no one.

Vandy is probably the best program in the entire country. Judging by what can be read about McIntosh, if he was one of their best incoming recruits, that would probably be a bad sign for their ability to remain at the top.

Doesn't mean signing McIntosh wasn't a nice job by the Mets or that he doesn't have potential to be a major leaguer some day, but the best incoming recruits for Vandy are typically 1st round talents.
