The difference from 2017 to 2018 is incredible.

I see Fraudy Vizcaino signing is official per Ben Badler. He has video up as well. Big lower half on the kid.

Glad to see them signing this kid. Hope there is a few more behind it that we can get excited about.


I agree with you on the tallent in the low levels, but for the new signings, we basically don't know squat about how high these guys will be ranked until they come stateside in a year or possibly 2. Guerrero got a bigger bonus than Gimenez and he's a non prospect now.

Some of the young international signings currently in GCL or maybe one or two in Kingsport could rocket up the rankings though.

The $2.1M bonus to Ramirez is the same amount they gave Mauricio two years ago.

Jacob Resnick on twitter is posting photos of the signings. He also said we signed centerfielder Erick Santana for 375,000.

Why is it that people named Junior are almost always enormous?

If you go by player rankings Ramirez got the highest announced bonus of any player after #16.

I know this is about... 678th on the list of things to complain about, but do the Mets EVER, EVER sign anyone in the top 5 on IFA lists?
