MOD: Mets #7 (2012 War Room)

Mock Organization Diary #7 for the New York Mets, Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft 2012

This MOD is our War Room for today's mock draft. Russ is the Scouting Director, and acerimusdux and mtk52983 are the assistant scouting directors.

The current plan is to take the best player available with the first pick, without regard to organizational needs. With picks 1.35, 2.71 and 2.75, we're biased towards selecting two catchers (one prep and one collegiate who project to stick behind the plate,) and one left handed pitcher. That may change. Pick 3.107 will either be the best player available, or a catcher if we were unable to select two in the previous rounds.

The previous MODs were:
MOD: Mets #1 (2012 Draft Approach)
MOD: Mets #2 (2012 Round 1 Pick)
MOD: Mets #3 (2012 Supplemental Round 1 Pick)
MOD: Mets #4 (2012 Round 2 Picks)
MOD: Mets #5 (2012 Round 3 Pick)
MOD: Mets #6 (2012 Review)

Below are the players who we like. They are ranked for draft selection priority. Italicized players may have signability issues.
