Brandon Richey, Northwestern State.

Saw him play. #3 hole hitter, went 2-2 with 2 walks and a steal against Tulane. Was against our #4 starter though

Holy shit, we took someone out of Georgetown. I didn't know we had anyone good.

Bryan Smith said we had the second worst Day 1 behind the Rockies.

Talk about a low upside draft. With eight picks in the first five rounds, the Mets took four college relievers, apparently high on their success with Joe Smith a year ago.

McDonald was a weekend starter fresh/soph year, but they made him into a closer this year. I only really remember him having a decent fastball, that's about all I know about him.

The Mets draft strategy is REALLY weird, I don't think I've ever seen this before. I don't know if they're planning to make some of these guys into starters or what, but it doesn't really make sense to me.

No idea. After the first two picks though, last year's draft was terrible. Except Josh Stinson in round 30-something. I'm waiting for some picks from Louisiana. Benny Latino always finds someone good.

I can't figure out what they are doing, but they aren't throwing picks away. Are they stockpiling bullpen arms for the future because of how valuable and now expensive they can be??

any ideas??

Minaya said this on Kunz, so yea I guess.

ďI think relievers are so important to the game right now that if you get a chance to get a guy that can help out in the major leagues, you have to consider that,Ē Minaya said. ďWe have good reports on him.Ē


It's just me speculating, but I wonder if the Mets stats department did a study on the draft, and the Mets are taking the results a little too far.

It's also possible that because of the philosophy of "let's get some RPs" that our reports on non-RPs are that good, so when the position players we DO want are gone, we just go back to what we know: more RPs.

I really don't think this is a deep draft. Toronto took a guy from Tulane in the 11th round and we were shocked. We were thinking like round 20 at earliest.

6th round: Guillaume Leduc, rhp
Quote:
Righthander Guillaume Leduc is a second French Canadian who could be taken inside the top 10 rounds. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder is older than most of his fellow countrymen, at 19, and has flashed a fastball up to 88 mph and can spin a good curveball at 70-74. Most of the major flaws in his delivery are correctable, and because of his size and strength he creates enough leverage to help his stuff play up.


7th round: Lucas Duda, 1b
Quote:
Duda remained a dud as a college hitter, batting a career .275 and just .278 this spring with a team-high six homers.


8th round: Dan McDonald, rhp
Quote:
McDonald entered the spring as a player that many scouts in the Mid-Atlantic had pegged as a potential riser. He'd shown above-average velocity in high school as well as last summer in the Cape Cod League, when he posted a 1.04 ERA and struck out 18 in 17 relief innings. He also has athleticism, another reason scouts were optimistic about him. While McDonald's velocity was climbing back toward 92 mph as the Pirates' season was winding down, but has pitched more in the 88-90 mph range. He'll flash an average slider at times, though he tends to get around it. McDonald has good feel for pitching and solid-average command, but with limited room for additional growth and mediocre success this spring, he probably won't be drafted until the fourth- to seventh-round range.


10th round: Brandon Richey, ss
Quote:
Shortstop Brandon Richey helped Louisiana State-Eunice win the Division II juco national championship in 2006, then made a successful transition to four-year college ball at Northwestern State, setting a school record with a 22-game hitting streak. He's undersized at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, but he's athletic and plays with constant energy. Richey has a strong arm and has improved his speed this spring. He's not the smoothest defender and his hands aren't the softest, but he makes plays at shortstop.

Tatford is the #3 hitter for NCAA tourney team Louisiana-Lafayette. Didn't do too well against Tulane (I only saw him go 1-5).

But he played LF/1B, the Mets list him as a C.

A: John Manuel: Kunz is a great pick, he can move quickly and gets LH hitters out with his changeup and slider. I don't think they took all relievers, Vinyard and Moviel have a chance to start, but I'm not a Rustich fan, the guy doesn't throw strikes and still hasn't gotten over that finger issue that bothered him last year. He has 3 plus pitches at times, but he lacks pitchability. The rest of their slate hasn't excited me frankly.

That's William Morgan. Rocking more of a creepy pedophile stache than a pornstache. Good stache nonetheless.

I like this pick automatically.

Mark my words.

Bobby Blevins, who was drafted by the Dodgers at pick 416 is a total steal.

I know the kid. He's a ballplayer if I've ever saw one. He pitched hurt all season and he still did great.

You now, I'm starting to like this draft. Even though we didn't get Harvey, they still got who they wanted. Kunz, Moviel, Clyne, Vineyard all have talent. Moviel is a kid that has a ton of projection. I tend to think that Omar knows what he is doing. I also think he is saving money for the IFA market this year. IMO, he is going to load up on IFA.

Lenny (Villanova, PA): Can you offer insta-analysis on the Mets' first two picks, Kunz and Vineyard?

Keith Law: (2:35 PM ET ) Kunz is a low-slot RHP with a dicey arm action (real short in back, then extends his arm late), a bad body, terrible control, and very good stuff, although his sink doesn't generate a lot of groundballs. He's not Joe Smith, and I'm wondering if that was what they thought they were getting (in the sense of a low-slot RHP who can come quickly). Vineyard is a projectable LHP with an average fastball and a chance for a plus breaking ball. Good pickup, like him better than Kunz at 43.

It's better than last year. Niesen and Rustich are weird picks and Kunz was a reach, but the rest were fine. I'm just annoyed that they went cheap. They have to get a lot of IFA talent this year or the system will start looking very barren in a year or two.

That is true, but hopefully Omar has a plan for IFA and signs alot of them
