An article by posted on August 11, 2009 0 Comments

The last 2 years we have heard that when the Mets traded Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra and Kevin Mulvey for Johan Santana, that the trade killed the farm system.  The Mets, and for some reason the media, told us this trade while it was necessary and important, completely decimated the farm system.  This […]
