Keith Law of ESPN.com released his annual farm system report and the New York Mets shined with a No. 7 ranking. Despite the Michael Fulmer trade and the promotions of Conforto, Nimmo, Rivera, Gsellman and Lugo, there is still a ton of value in the system.
MMO and MMN executive editor Michael Mayer joins me to talk about this ranking. Michael gives comps to top prospects Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith. Hear his thoughts on how the Mets have fared in the International market.
Can young arms like Justin Dunn and Thomas Szapucki allow the Mets to absorb losses to their young rotation? Finally, are there value arms in the system that will allow Sandy Alderson to pass on veterans Jerry Blevins and Fernando Salas in the free agent market?
We address all this and more in the latest farm report.
