l.j. mazzilli

As the Cardinals, Dodgers, Red Sox, and Tigers dig deep into their respective match-ups to see who will represent each league in the 2013 World Series, the Mets are continuing to figure out their 2014 strategy. You’ll be able to see from some of our original content below that a couple of our writers feel the best ways for New York to get back to playing competitive baseball is by creating even more depth in the minors, and focus on starting pitching.

The Arizona Fall League is now underway, and Cory Vaughn kicked things off by participating in the hitting challengeSatish R. also provided an update as to how some of New York’s prospects are doing with the extended time on the playing field. Winter leagues are also set to start within the next week or so in some areas.

Not surprising, but Noah Syndergaard was ranked the top pitching prospect (sixth overall) in the Florida State League this past season by Baseball America.

Mets scouts were present for the workouts performed by Jose Abreu, and they were impressed by his display of power. But, that’s about it.

Also, Satish R. and Christina M. put on the first MMN prospect chat this past week on Friday night. You can check out all the questions and answers right here.
