Future is Coming Applesauce - Mets have 13th overall pick, Captain Kirk takes off, Wright's long-term options

Meet the Mets

No baseball last night theoretically means extra time for me to study. Weird how it never works out that way. Oh well. Instead, I can start thinking about who Sandy Alderson and Paul DePodesta are going to snag with the 13th overall pick in the MLB draft

Jason Pridie has impressed in his short time with the Mets, but the organization has another guy in AAA who may offer a much bigger upside in the outfield: Captain Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

Somehow I missed this yesterday, but R.A. Dickey + Darth Vader = awesome.

Andy McCullough nerds out and goes all WAR-y while explaining the Mets' long-term options with David Wright.
