I have almost 90 minutes before gametime and my things to do box is huge and seemingly growing by the minute. A piece of pecan pie is working its way to the top.
Anyway, just got off the phone with draft pick Kevin Mulvey. The Mets scouts like his stuff. I like his sense of humor. When asked to compare himself to any current pitcher, he chose the Yankees’ Mike Mussina. Then apologized. Nice first impression.
Anyway, here’s the draft so far. I’ll post this, write for The Journal News, and be back during the game. Pedro Martinez against Derek Lowe.
