The New York Mets are a rebuilding franchise without a whole lot of talent in the pipeline to rebuild with. At least that seems to be the opinion of ESPN baseball analyst Keith Law, who ranked the Mets' farm system No. 22 of out of baseball's 30 teams in his annual rankings of major league farm systems [Insider Only].â†µ
It's actually getting better here, but rebuilding a system takes years, and the Mets have really just begun to inject higher-upside talent into the system.â†µ
John Sickels of SB Nation's Minor League Ball is not in love with the Mets' prospects, either. He does, however, rank the system higher than Law -- placing it No. 15 in his own rankings.â†µ
Solid depth in pitching, especially at the top with Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and Jeurys Familia.â†µ
Sort of interesting to see how two well-regarded experts can view the same systems much differently.
