Come on over to the main forum. I'm pleased and wanted Nimmo, but not as pumped as I'd be if we could have landed him in the sandwich round, which was probably a pipe dream.

Re: 2011 Draft Results and Signings 


I just cannot overstate how happy I am with this draft thus far.  It's obviously predicated on signing some of these kids, but why would we draft them if we didn't have the budget to sign them?  Sign some of these kids, and on paper, it's our best draft in many years.

Re: 2011 Draft Results and Signings 


I've been following Josh Ake for a couple of years - he's been the star at Hunterdon C for a while and always a leader but the way he pulled the team together at the beginning of this season after one of the players tragically died in a car accident was something I'll never forget. A true character - he's got a scholarship to play at UNC. Wonder which direction he'll go.

I have a feeling that Alexander Panteliodis has a megathread dedicated to him in his future.

Leathersich will sign.

www.bostonherald.com/sports/co...ty_will_answer/

“Oh my God. It’s unbelievable,’’ said the 6-foot Leathersich. “I talked to the area scout (Art Pontarelli) about 10 minutes before they called. I can’t put it into words. I have one year left (at UML) but I’m definitely going to sign.’’

Looks good for Tuschek. Of course he wasn't supposed to be a tough sign.

Whoa.

www.indystar.com/article/20110...|IndyStar.com|s

Lawrence Central High School right-hander Christian Montgomery was drafted by the New York Mets in the 11th round.

"I'm really excited," he said. "I've been thinking about this day since I was little."

Montgomery, a 6-1, 230-pounder, committed to Chipola Junior College in Florida, but he said he will sign with the Mets.

"I just want to be in the big leagues," he said.

Mathews looks iffy:

diamondbar.patch.com/articles/...llege-or-go-pro

“It’s hard to say,” Mathews said of his decision. “It depends on what happens. It’s interesting, it’s exciting. All the sweat, all the tears, it’s the moment of truth."

Mathews said his decision will be tempered by the round he is drafted, his family's input, and where he has the greatest chance for success, but the dream of the bigs retains a distinct appeal.

"If I get drafted, I’ll try to move up," Mathews said. "I’ll try to live the dream."

Random Day 2 Notes from our Scouting Director:
espn.go.com/blog/new-york/mets...-day-2-of-draft

MacDonald said he did not expect several of the picks to fall to the Mets. He had Mazzoni tabbed as a first-round pick by someone and indicated he did not think Verrett would get to the third round. He also felt fortunate about Tuschak in the sixth. MacDonald added that ninth-round selection Alex Panteliodis, a left-handed pitcher from the University of Florida, was expected to go in the first three rounds in his mind. Panteliodis throws a “firm” 90-94 mph and was the Gators’ Friday night starter as a freshman and a sophomore.

Dude's wearing a Yankee hat!  eek


For some reason I didn't think he was going to be an easy sign, but this is good news.  I feel good about this pick.
