Another Down On The Farm Post? Oh Gee!

Dillon Gee, the 21st round draft pick in 2007 for the Mets was interviewed by CSTV.

In the article, we get to learn a little about Gee, who was promoted from single A St. Lucie to AA Binghamton this past season.

Gee, who hales from Cleburne, Texas, is a 6' 1" right hander who ranked in six of the top 10 statistical categories while at St. Lucie. After being promoted to Binghamton, he finished with a 2-0 record with a 1.33 ERA, 20 K's, 4 BB in 27 innings.

When asked what his biggest adjustment was from college to pro, Gee said, "The biggest adjustment has been the kind of talent that I am facing now. I just try to stay a little more consistent the higher I move up in the organization. "

When being asked how he felt being selected for the Florida State All Star team, Gee responded, "That is what you dream about, to be involved with that kind of talent and to be able to play on that kind of stage. This past season went really well for me and I continued to do well. Things just kind of fell into place for me this year.

Gee, who tends to rank among the highest in his division for innings pitched, credits his success to off season conditioning and working on his mechanics.

Gee is looking like he may turn out to be a stud after his first full season, and from the 21st round no less. Nice Pick Omar.
