Law: Mets Have #6 Farm System in Baseball

Keith Law Suit & TieAt ESPN.com, Keith Law ranked the best Farm Systems in baseball, and placed the Mets sixth. Law uses all players who still have rookie eligibility.

The Mets trail the Astros, Twins, Pirates, Cubs and Red Sox.

Last year, the Mets were 14th and the year before that 22nd.

Law’s comment:

The turnaround in this system is remarkable, especially when you consider they have not had a top-10 pick since they took Matt Harvey in 2010, and it puts the Mets in excellent shape relative to the other four teams in their division.

The decisions to trade R.A. Dickey and Marlon Byrd look even better in hindsight. The Mets also have one of the minors’ best collections of pitchers who throw strikes but aren’t strictly finesse guys.
