News: Mets sign 1st Pick Stephen Matz

According to Keith Law of ESPN.com, the Mets signed Stephen Matz, their first overall pick, for $895,000.

…yes, the Mets essentially paid $400,000 over slot, for those who have been concerned they never buck the system

“Matz has some violence in his delivery,” Law added, “but he’s athletic and has shown feel for both a changeup and a curveball while touching 94.”

Matz graduated from Ward Melville High School on Long Island.

from what i can gather, Matz and his family are long-time Mets fans, which only makes sense, since they live on Long Island and their last name is Matz… i mean, how could they not be Mets fans

Speaking of prospects…
