Just a quick one before calling it a night. I may elaborate in the morning; I may not.
For all the talk — the negative kind — about the Mets farm system, it’s not devoid of prospects. While it may not be deep, it’s among the top half in one respect: Baseball America’s Top 100. The Mets are one of 10 teams to have four players listed and only the Rays (seven), Cubs and Indians (five each) have more.
The Mets’ ranked players:
56. Jennry Mejia, RHP
62. Ike Davis, 1B
77. Fernando Martinez, OF
88. Wilmer Flores, SS
They may not be ranked terribly high, but let’s put it in perspective: These four made the top 100 out of thousands.
