The Mets threaded the needle, give them credit for that, they win the 2019 MLB Draft. Landed the 17th, 36th, 13th best prospects with picks 12, 53 and 89. Well played.

Getting 3 first round talents is a good haul. I’m just not sure it’s a great idea though. Chances are all 3 bust, and then the Mets have 3 busts and a bunch of seniors.

The odds are against all three having a successful MLB career; however, Mets GM Van Wagenen is a risk-taker. The Cano trade is one example.

Awesome!

All is forgiven?

Not close .. but this is a step in the right direction

And yeah all 3 of these kids could be busts .. but they will have legit pedigree value until that is determined

On the flip side to my own post, first rounders have a much greater chance of reaching the majors and generally are first round talents for a reason. These players are definitely a big boost for the system.

Can I say I like the strategy if it works and not like it if it doesn’t?

We all feel it. The draft is rigged in a haphazard fashion to overstate its delusion of importance. It’s built for TV now. Baseball has ventured away from it’s weird in an effort to suppress wages and signing bonuses and maximize profits and further add to the overwhelming power wielded by owners. The players just want a chance. And Agent General Managers occupy their post-playing days by making some trades and simulating until the draft like OOTP ‘19 real life Career mode. Whoops. Forgot to scout. I’ll just draft the baseball America top available and sim a little more until the trading deadline. The fake owner (who keeps emailing me ughhh) can’t fire me if I fire the coach first. I think the coach is suspended or something anyway. Wait, no I think lefty starter got into a fight. Verbal fight? ::shrug:: Hehe 10k fine, gents. Ooh can I suspend them? Ehh, don’t feel like figuring that out. Oh, got a text from my mistress. Have to go wax my chest while I save and quit but never bother to load this save data again.
