If he was willing to sign for $2.5M, why didn't any other team know this and take him at the back of round 1 or early round 2? I still just don't understand how this happened, unless he just completely changed his mind after round 2 about going to college (or bluffed too hard to get his bonus higher) and then let teams know before round 3 he would still consider 2.5 and only the Mets were willing to punt rounds 4-10?


That's my thinking. He may have tried to push for 4 and failed. If he'd asked for 3, there's a good chance he gets taken in the first round and not be a met right now, but it's pure speculation.

He wouldn't be the first guy to ask for more than teams wanted to spend and end up getting less.

Terrific news. Can anyone give us some comparable players? Maybe Hugh and low end.

I read that when he was drafted. Which actually gave me some confidence. They must have known they had it in the bag.
