Nimmo should be a deadline signing...

Baseball America's Jim Callis was answering questions on his twitter account and sounded pretty sure that Brandon Nimmo, the Mets first round pick would sign by the August 15th deadline.  Nimmo has committed to the University of Arkansas, so he has a fall back option should negotiations fall apart.  Apparently prior to the draft the Mets had their feelers out and Nimmo would go pro over college but it will cost the Mets much more then his slot value.  Even signed it's not without risk, Nimmo is a high school kid in which his high ceiling was determined based on very little exposure since Wyoming doesn't have high school baseball...
