    Mayo: Mets target college bats in draft

    MLB.com draft guru Jon Mayo, my former sports editor at The Daily Pennsylvanian, predicts the Mets will select Arizona State first baseman/outfielder Ike Davis (far r.), Miami second baseman Jemile Weeks (r.) or a power arm such as Arizona’s Ryan Perry in the first round.

    After forfeiting first-round picks the past two years to sign Billy Wagner and Moises Alou, the Mets have the 18th, 22nd and 33rd overall picks in Thursday’s draft, which begins at 2 p.m. Two of those picks came as compensation for the Braves signing Tom Glavine.

    Davis’ father, Ron, pitched for the Yankees. Weeks is the brother of Milwaukee’s Rickie Weeks.

    “They’re looking for college bats early,” Mayo said. “The big thing they’re looking for up top are guys who can get there in a hurry and help fill the upper levels of the system quickly.”

    5 top 100 Picks for the Mets. We haven't had many high draft picks in a few years.

    For all you baseball draftniks out there, we have a brief rundown on
    where the Mets New York Mets sit going into the first-year player draft that starts Thursday in Orlando.

    The Mets have five picks in the top 100: Nos. 18, 22, 33, 68 and 100. The Nos. 18 and 33 choices were compensation for the Braves signing Tom Glavine.

    Indications going in are that the Mets are interested most in Arizona State first baseman Ike Davis, the son of former big-league pitcher Ron Davis. Baseball America ranks Davis the third-best power hitter available in the draft and 36th in its overall ratings.

    The Mets have been known for adhering to the slotting system, unlike many of their fellow big-money clubs, but GM Omar Minaya (pictured) has hinted he won't be so beholden to slotting with the club's farm system desperately in need of replenishing after the Johan Santana Johan Santana trade.

    The draft will be held today and tomorrow at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex. The Mets will be represented by St. Lucie manager Tim Tuefel and another ex-Met, Al Jackson, who is now the club's minor-league pitching consultant.

    The first day of the draft is being broadcast on ESPN2.
    Minaya says the Mets will abide by only one edict when choosing between college or high school candidates, and deciding whether to pursue pitchers or position players: This time around, the GM said, "we're going after the best available players. That's going to come first."

    It wasn't gonna happen, when teams like Pittsburgh and KC aren't letting the top players drop, they won't fall like they used to.

    I could see them spending for Posey, but Smoak is a good guess as well.

    Told ya.

    The benefits to overslotting is dead, the small market teams aren't letting these players drop over money.
