This is premium content from mets.scout.com, so I will only post an excerpt on the signing question from the Q&A:

4th round Darrell Ceciliani

Ceciliani: I definitely want to get this done as quick possible, but we're going to do this right and make sure that everything is the right deal for me.

6th round David Buchanan

I am going to hold back as of right now and talk to my advisor and dad and figure out what else needs to take place.


Link

7th round Darin Gorski

Right now I'm just going to spend time with family and enjoy the whole moment and then get back to work tomorrow.


Link

8th round Taylor Freeman

Freeman: I definitely plan on signing and pursuing my career in baseball. I'm excited about playing in short season or wherever I end up.

Ceciliani makes clear he wants to sign if you read the whole article

Wed Jun 10, 2009 6:33 pm

Gorski basically reveals they told him he is going to BK, he claims to not know anything but "that their single-a team is in BK" meaning "someone" told him that.

Wed Jun 10, 2009 7:00 pm

Jeff Glenn sounds like he will sign as well.
