Who will the Mets Draft in the First Round?


The New York Mets have the 13th Pick Overall in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft.

Many have speculated that the Mets will take Jed Bradley from Georgia Tech.

Jed Bradley, LHP, Georgia Tech: Polished lefty offers three pitches (88-94 fastball, plus slider, solid change) with excellent command, though stock dropped somewhat late this spring. Allowed just one homer so far. 7-3, 3.49 ERA with 106/31 K/BB in 98 innings. Target: Mid first round.

Keith Law of  ESPN thinks it going to be Matt Barnes of UConn..

Matt Barnes, RHP, University of Connecticut: Throws mid-90s heat along with plus curveball and solid changeup. Has size (6-4, 205), stuff, and command to anchor a major league rotation. 11-4, 1.62 ERA with 111/31 K/BB in 117 innings. Target: Early-to-mid first round.

Some have mentioned Taylor Guerrieri from Spring Valley, HS as a wild card

Taylor Guerrieri, RHP, Spring Valley HS, Columbia, South Carolina: Fast-riser this spring has mid-to-upper-90s fastball along with power curve, hasn't needed third pitch yet but has the aptitude to develop it. Doubts about makeup hurt stock with some clubs. Target: Mid first round.

My Pick is Jed Bradley. He is a big tall lefty that has good control...
