Law Ranks Wheeler, d’Arnaud, Syndergaard In Top 100 MLB Prospects

ESPN’s Keith Law Ranks Mets System No. 14

Updated 2/4 ESPN’s Keith Law has ranked the Mets’ farm system at No. 14 in baseball. Law writes: The R.A.

First-rounder Gavin Cecchini could move quickly for a prep kid, as he’s pretty advanced for a […]

MMO Featured Post: The Myth Of A Bountiful Inheritance

While I´m quite tired of the “Omar vs. Sandy” debate, a recent post about the “strong farm system” Omar Minaya supposedly left behind in late 2010, got me thinking and looking. To summarize, as of today, it doesn´t look as if the farm system left behind was all that good. And one  big reason for […]

Scouting Report on Mets Mock Draft Pick at #11

I hadn’t given it much thought until it became clear that the interest in free agent center fielder Michael Bourn was more than just passing. I don’t really think that Bourn’s price will drop into a range the Mets are comfortable with, and if it does, that would probably invite more teams to take a […]
