2nd-rder Mark Vientos signs w/@Mets for $1.5 mil (pick 59 value=$1,094,700). HS SS can move to 3b and fit offensive profile there @MLBDraft

sweet!

I think we would have unhappily bit the bullet and gone to $2M.

No kidding Nitey. I thought Mets would offer $1.5MM, Vientos would ask for $2MM, and they'd meet in the middle.

Wow sweet, looks like the Mets have been signing the guys they really needed to get from this draft.

If so many teams passed on him that he slid to 59, that's not a great position of leverage to be holding out for $2M, when $1.5M is already $400K over that slot. Mets had to express to him that they were willing to let him go and weren't going over $1.5M. Nicely done.

Grew up a Mets fan, how cool.

Expected to begin his career at SS

Where does it say that he grew up a Mets fan? Not doubting it - just want to read more about him!

Honestly, I'd start him at third, and keep him there.

He's a kid.

Ten minutes ago qualifies as 'growing up'......
