    I honestly think the first 5 rounds we should take the positional player with the highest upside possible. We have played it safe for a long time and its time to take some risks.

    I know in baseball you don't draft for need because most players will take multiple years to develop and you never know what your needs will be at the time the player is ready. However with all the depth we have in out system with young pitchers we need to spend the first few rounds drafting positional players with the highest ceilings possible. If you get lucky with 1 and get a solid player with another its more then worth the gamble.

    Yeah we seem to do a good job picking pitchers late in the draft so I would not mind that.

    If we're going to draft a pitcher I has to be a lefty we are loaded with right-handed pitching.

    Trey Ball, Stephen Gonsalves, Ian Clarkin, Rob Kaminsky, and Jonah Wesely for HS pitchers and Sean Manaea (should be gone) and Marco Gonzalez for College pitchers. Gonzalez could be a sleeper pick. He had a 1.55 ERA as a starter for Gonzaga last year as a Sophmore, which was third out of all NCAA pitchers. He also played 1B and had a .325 BA.

    Mets Picking 11th in the 2013 Draft

    I like Gonsalves more than any other lefty for now.

    If we did go the pitching route, I still have Trey Ball at the top of my list. To answer Youngstunna earlier, I would want him as a pitcher.

    Funny Trey Ball is being mentioned as a LHP while others prefer to go for position players. Some scouts like his upside more as position player than as a pitcher.

    I think Trey Ball is talented enough that he will succeed whichever route he decides to take.

    I too would draft him as a pitcher though, because he's long and left-handed. We have almost no lefties in our system other than Matz, Gorski, and a bunch of loogys.

    The Mets should draft what they develop best. At the moment that's pitching. A team should draft what they develop best.

    Agreed. They drafted Harvey and that turned out great.

    Stockpile as much pitching as possible then make trades.

    Here is a guy that the Mets may take and as of now is a borderline first round pick if that , but if he has another strong year after an excellent CCL performance as he won the MVP there, he may end up a first round pick for sure. If he would fall to the 2nd round I would hope that with one of the picks the Mets would take him. He does not play for a major program so that is why there is just no hype to this guy as he plays for Sanford and here are what he did the last 2 years.


    2011 Samford .371/.440/.516, 4 HR, 7 SB, 25 BB, 28 K's in 244 PA's.
    2012 Samford .327/.406/.519, 10 HR, 16 SB, 23 BB, 39 K's in 298 PA's.

    2011 Northwoods League .305/.392/.523, 6 HR, 9 SB, 16 BB, 21 K in 153 PA.
    2012 Cape Cod League .323/.429/.631, 11 HR, 10 SB, 17 BB, 29 K's in 154 PA.

    This is what BA said about Phillip Ervin earlier this year.

    Ervin has gotten off to a torrid pace on the Cape this summer. Through just 15 games, the rising junior has mashed a league-leading eight home runs, a number that has already eclipsed the season-ending totals of both the 2011 and 2010 CCBL home run champions. At 5-foot-10, 195 pounds, Ervin doesn’t possess a typical power hitter’s frame, instead utilizing lightning-quick hands, good bat control and patience at the plate. “He’s a very disciplined hitter,” said Harwich manager Steve Englert. “He has a great approach and is just playing relaxed.”

    While it’s his offensive outburst that has garnered the attention of scouts thus far, Ervin’s performance in center field has been notable as well. He is an above-average runner with good instincts and a strong, accurate arm. He’s displayed adequate route running and good range, giving him the potential for five average to above-average tools.
    Here is some video of him

    ...and again he will be a Jr. and a guy who could stick in center field and would likely not need much time in the minors, so he is not a long term project.

    What's you're opinion on Kris Bryant?
