    I have no stake in this since I am not a Mets fan by any stretch but, wow, this seems like a terrible pick. Unless they see something in him that makes them think he can be converted to a starter then this is just dumb. The track record for the best college relievers picked in the first round is mixed at best (Re: Ryan Wagner, and to a lesser extent Craig Hansen) so I don’t understand them picking a guy who wasn’t even one of the top one or two closers in college ball.

    Looks like the Sawx and the boy genius picked up a reliever too, and then went w/ CJ Henry 2.0 w/ their 2nd pick.
