Mock Organization Diary #1 for the New York Mets, Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft 2012
Mock draft overview
We will collaboratively create a ranked list of preferred prospects that will be used for the May 26th mock draft. The draft will be conducted through Round 3.
Organizational needs and drafting the best player available (BPA)
The Mets farm system most needs catchers, middle infielders, and pitching (especially lefties.) That said, if an outfielder or corner infielder is available who is clearly the BPA, we should consider him. There is also the issue of high school vs. college players, as well as a concern about the safety of picking high school arms.
Questions to discuss:
How safe should we draft? How should we go about prioritizing our list? Who wants to be an Assistant Scouting Director for this mock draft? After we resolve these issues, we'll start the second diary entry.
