Drafting Harvey Was Easy, Dealing With Boras Won’t Be

Now that the Mets have drafted UNC product Matt Harvey with the seventh overall pick in the draft, the task at hand now becomes signing him before the August 16th deadline.

I was a little shocked by the Mets selection, not because he was reach or not as talented as those they passsed on, but I didn’t think they’d be so quick to draft a Scott Boras client after some of the recent problems stemming from the Oliver Perez situation and the Carlos Beltran surgery fiasco six months back.

One thing the Mets have going in their favor is that they have managed to sign every one of their first-round draft picks over the last 40 years.

That’s a pretty good track record.
