That is alot of money, but he was a heckuva pitcher in college. He may very well be worth the money, and I can't wait to see how his stats stack up verse some of the other top pitchers in drafts lately (mainly Verlander). If his numbers end up as good as Verlanders have been so far, then the Mets got them a great young SP, and he will definitely make you forget the name Petit.
Well, with Boras as your agent, that's pretty much what we could have expected contract wise. His numbers in college are very impressive, but as we all know, that can all change when the big boys step in the box. It's something to get excited about at least, especially since the Mets will be needing some good starters in 2 to 3 years.
