    I'd like that. It would be nice to draft an OF college power bat who could possibly be MLB ready in only a yr or two, rather then the usual guys we draft that take 3-5 yrs.

    Wilson's size reminds me of Giancarlo Stanton and every scouting report seems to mention his tremendous raw power.

    I would be happy with him or Williams.

    Just read up on Wilson, decent speed and power and improving each year. Will be 21 here shortly. I think you draft the best available talent.

    I don't think he will be available. The best college bats tend to come off the board quickly.

    If he's available, yeah you draft him for sure.

    I didn't even think he would get close to us. I was surprised that us taking him.

    Well the best college bat is said to be Kris Bryant. In fact, a lot of mock drafts have hitters Bryant, Meadows, and Frazier all being drafted before Wilson. So he could be available. Probably not but he could be. I'd love Kris Bryant but there's basically no chance of him being there at 11, but Wilson could be and we should take him if he is. We need OF hitters who could be MLB ready in as little as 2 yrs.

    RH power bat is exactly what we need, let's see if Spindy can get it right this time.

    If he's there..

    A lot of boards have him coming off earlier than #11.

    Hopefully we dont reach like the last 2 drafts, but im pretty sure mets will take someone not in the top 20 rankings that will be cheaper to sign

    Cechini was not a reach since he was drafted were most people had him going.

    Keep in mind also that they'll have more money in the pool this year because of the extra pick for not signing Stanky (the HS RHP in the 2nd round) last year. That could be another 500-700K in the pool.

    Yeah, I think so many people hated the pick that they began to slowly infer that it was a reach when it wasn't at all. Personally, my problem with the pick was that they talked up "upside" so much, then replace the SD with someone who may have a different philosophy (based on track record) and then take a kid who's "upside" is that of a solid regular and the ceiling of a bit above average regular.
