Translating Sickels’ Rankings to Dollar Values

A reader puts a dollar value on John Sickels Farm System Rankings.

There are a number of methodological issues (like taking the average value for all C-level prospects rather than by parceling them out by age to produce a more accurate value) that prevent me from putting too much stock in the precise numbers.  However, as an overall feel-type exercise, I think this has value.  Mets position player prospects outpace their pitching side counterparts $44.3 million to $33.9.  The Mets ranked 25th in baseball in expected value.  Given Sickels’ initial rankings of Mets players, where he assigned one B+ and two Bs, this should not have been very surprising.
