As I wrote yesterday, I’m not that into following college or high school players as potential prospects for the Mets. But I do enjoy reading about the Mets picks and their qualifications. After watching a bit of the ESPN2 draft coverage yesterday and reading many draft recaps, I have to say that the best coverage of the Mets draft is available at MetsGeek.

Alex Nelson does a tremendous job of dissecting the players and their potential. He concentrates on first round picks Ike Davis of ASU and Reese Havens of South Carolina plus sandwich round pick Brad Holt. But he also goes into the perfect level of depth on the later round picks as well. Great job, Alex.

I don’t get too excited about these guys because most never make the big league team. And the ones that do, typically take a few years to get there. Not much to get crazy about. I’m more concerned about this season.
