thank you slugger

With all the high school selections......taking into account the new rules for budgeting....How many do we "realistically" expect to sign away from college?

I love the stragedy, it's better than low ceiling college seniors who max out at St Lucie......just hope we can sign a handful here.

Sluger, I, as many others will be following this for the next couple of months. Overall, this has been an exciting draft for me, especially considering the new rules. I expect the Mets to use their $$$ allotment and just want to be on record....I love their first two picks! I also love the number of HS players they have picked and my fingers are crossed that they can get the best of them.
