“Whether that’s a shift in emphasis, I can’t really say, because I wasn’t here previously. But we’re absolutely determined to build the foundation of this organization and create a player-development system that’s a true feeder for our major league team — and not just for role players, but also with potential impact players. That’s going to take a little time for us to do. It always takes some years to build. But I think I speak for our entire scouting staff when I say we think this year was a good first step.” – Paul DePodesta
We got a lot riding on thse two kids, and they both have very high ceilings, so I must admit that the future looks very bright right now. Yes, I know they’ve acomplished nothing thus far, but it’s great to have this kind of potential in our farm system.
Thanks to the NY Mets for the cool pic!
