Link: Brandon Nimmo

I have to confess that I almost never find feature stories written on draft picks worthwhile reads. They're usually formulaic and superficial.

That said, Andy McCullough's long feature on Mets' top pick Brandon Nimmo in The Star-Ledger is very much the exception to the rule. It is very much worth your time.

On a side note, I think McCullough's work is consistently top-notch. I don't have all of the time available I would wish to read about the Mets, so I'm a lot more discriminating on where I spend that time. While there are a couple of beat writers who seem to lean heavily on ginning up fake controversy, McCullough just writes good stuff.

If you are just finding this blog again and wondering why I was gone for so long and what the plan is going forward, read this.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

Anything new on signing Nimmo ? I think the deadline is August 15th.

No. You're right about the 15th, Barry, and I hope it doesn't go down to the wire, but often it does with 1st round picks. Too bad the Mets couldn't have signed him quick -- he would have benefitted from the couple of months of development.
