The Mets rarely overslot, right? But teams like Texas consistently do it. Could that explain why Texas' system is so diesel, and ours, well, isn't?

BPA is the best strategy with nearly anything, but if you're gonna focus on anything, make it power pitching and power hitting. Live fastballs and light tower power. The former seems to be working just fine (Holt, Mejia, Moviel, Carr).

The meat of their system has come from trading veterans. Teixeira for four primo prospects (including their current #1), Gagne for Engel Beltre, etc. They've had extra first rounders from guys like Francisco Cordero leaving. They have done well in IFA (Martin Perez for instance).

Overslotting doesn't really explain anything regarding Texas's system. It's a good crop of guys, though.

Isn't the Yankees the one who always over slot, and rubs in other team's faces about it too.

To the OP:

baseball draft is just so difficult for us to follow, I mean, I could get under NHL, def NFL and NBA, you get to know those players from international games and college. Its just so difficult to follow hs and college baseball. All you are exposed to is Baseball America, and come draft day all I see is the same white faces, I wouldn't even know what kind of players my team drafted and how good they could be until a year later.

MLB is really missing out on the amateur draft. They need to market these kids, and the draft better.... make it an event.

they didn't overslot last year and they had a very good draft.

overslotting for high school players isn't the right way.

if a team does draft him and he decides to stick with football what happens then?? does the team get another draft pick the following year??

is it the same thing that happened to the yankees last year when the 'born a yankee' fella decided to go to college??

texas's system is diesel because they don't sign Type A free agents and they traded mark texeira to the braves and raped them.

overslot is is a stupid buzzword

You only get a comp pick in the first round I believe if you don't sign your pick.

It's why the Nats have like the 9A pick this year, when they didn't sign Crowe.

That Tex trade was a thing of beauty for Met fans. Thank God we won`t have to deal with Tommy Hanson and Feliz.

Tommy Hanson is still in the system and doing quite well. The four guys who went in that trade were Feliz, Elvis Andrus, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and Matt Harrison (three of them currently play on the Major League team).

I think he meant dealing with them together in a major league rotation.

As in, let's thank whatever deity we might believe in that there's no series where we go into turner field and have to face Jurrjens, Hansen, and Feliz back to back to back.

Give me at least SOME credit for predicting the trade would set the Braves back 5 years.

Correct. That threesome would kill us and might be the second coming of Glavine, Maddux and Smoltz.
