My Thoughts On MLB’s Mets Top 20 Prospects – Part 1

Yesterday, I took at the newly updated Top 20 Mets Prospects list by MLB’s Joey Nowak and Jonathan Mayo. I was very disappointed to say the least, and it didn’t look like much thought was put into it. Some of their choices were way off and hard to justify. Reese Havens at number 8 was laughable, […]
