7 Position Players New York Mets Should Target in the 2013 Draft
Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Ah, the Major League Baseball draft; the one draft in the four major professional sports that is essentially a crap shoot. You just never know what is going to happen. For every Ken Griffey Jr., there are seven or eight Brien Taylors just waiting to decimate a team's future.

There will never be another Griffey Jr., but here's hoping that the New York Mets find someone closer to him than Taylor with their No. 11 overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft.
