That was a shitty article from someone with absolutely no knowledge of the farm system. See, I don't usually read NY newspapers. How many years has this guy been around? How long did he go to school? And why is he still employed? Maybe he is good on the beat but he really shouldn't expand beyond that. There are prospect fanboys here who could have written a better article on the farm than this

Pickles' always cracks me up.


and yeah, it's a pretty weak article. Not horrendous, but no information there, though I did find the bit about the mets having 18 guys on their roster who started in AAA kinda interesting.

I'm definitely a "prospect fanboy" but that's how I've dealt with the gloom that has enveloped this franchise for the last three years.

Still can't believe that The Animal didn't turn into Chase Utley at the plate. Good thing Havens will.
