Amateur Draft Day 2 Open Thread

With their first-round selection last night, the Mets took UNC sinkerballer Matt Harvey, a kid with high upside but a little more rawness than you typically see in a college pitcher.

I'll try and keep up with the selections as they come off the board and add them to the chart below, but the picks do move very fast. After picking prep outfielder Josh Sale last night, I'll also continue making my selections in my shadow draft for at least a few more rounds in the comments below.

And that does it for us. I'll have the highlights up either later tonight or early tomorrow morning. Quick gut reactions: that's a lot of college players, and it's a lot of pitchers.
