The amat. draft is coming up and the Mets have the third pick. According to ESPN (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/columns/s ... id=1809882
) this is the way they see the first five panning out:
1: Padres take Long Beach State sidearmer Jered (Brother of Jeff) Weaver.
2: Tigers take Old Dominion powerballer Justin Verlander.
3: Mets take Rice righthander Philip Humber.
4: Devil Rays take Georgia high school shortstop Chris Nelson.
5: Brewers take 6-foot-9 Rice righthander Jeff Niemann.
Does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of Humber? ESPN predicts him (on the same page) as a #3.
(although I do have to admit I'm pleased by the idea of a Humber-Huber battery)
