Did Mets Give White Sox Another Star In The Making?

Last week in the MMO Lets Talk Mets chat room, Myself and Met Maniac were discussing the recent amatuer draft and how we were both disappointed that the Mets bypassed the opportunity to select slugging High School OF Courtney Hawkins or High School sensation RHP Lucas Giolito with the number 12 pick.
