Interview with the Other Great NL East Draft PIck Steven Matz
At the MLB Draft signing deadline headlines were made by a prospect who will over shadow this one for years. Steven Matz is an 18 year old pitcher from Ward Melville High School on Long Island who also got signed at the deadline like Steven Strasburg. Matz was signed by the Mets, possibly creating a pitching rivalry in the NL East. I got the chance to interview Mr. Matz at CitiField last night.
BW: Were you always a Met fan?
SM: Yes I was.
BW: Who is your favorite current Met?
SM: Johan Santana.
BW: What is it like to get picked for your hometown team?
SM: It was awesome.
BW: Will you be better than Steven Strasburg?
SM: (laughs) I hope so.
