college world series?

Jun 20 2005 02:13 PM

any recent met draftees on show in the elimination games that's on right now between Baylor and Oregon St?

How does this work; if you're drafted to you still play?

Yes, you're still eligible to play so long as you don't sign a contract, and of course no one who just had a week or so worth of games remaining would sign a deal until their run is over. The quick signees are usually either the HS kids or the later-round guys whose seasons are already done. There's also very little bargaining to go on once you get past the first few rounds anyway.

Mets didn't seem to draft a whole ton of players from major colleges this year so I don't think any of those still involved are one of ours.
Top pick Pelfrey was a Witchita State guy but they didn't make it to the tourney.
