Round 1: Gavin Cecchini – There are quite a few Met fans who are angry with this decision. The Mets could have gone after Hawkins or Giolito… but I think that Gavin actually fits pretty well into the Met’s farm system. Obviously, the Mets are not gifted with a plethora of SS options in their minors (the draft will prove this point) as Ruben Tejada is the MLB short-stop and Wilfredo Tovar (Ruben Tejada Lite) is the only thing close to a prospect behind him (Port St. Lucie). Add to this the fact that Gavin is a runner who projects as a prototypical lead-off hitter. The Mets have a few options for that type of player but even Darrell Cecilianni isn’t an extreme base stealer. It was a good selection although not the sexiest choice that could have been made.
Supplemental Round 1: Kevin Plawecki – I got the sense that people were less upset about this one. Sure he hasn’t shown much power, but he has a contact oriented swing and he’s a bigger guy. Power might come… and it might not. H
