Curious as to why you want to keep all the white pitchers and dump all the latin ones.

Bear in mind, his post was from January. Montero wasn't thought of quite as highly then, and Mejia was considered history.

"Bear in mind, his post was from January. Montero wasn't thought of quite as highly then, and Mejia was considered history. "

Right you are... not sure why this post resurfaced nine months later. But yes, I'm equally optimistic about other pitchers in the Mets system, including Mejia, Montero, Familia, Mateo, Ynoa and Lara. And I never said I wanted to dump all the Latin ones.

While I generally preach a philosophy of hoarding young pitching, I recognize that trading some pitching talent may be necessary to land another position of need, like a power-hitting outfielder.

If I were going to make my "untouchable list"of pitchers, knowing what I know now, I'd probably include:
Harvey
Wheeler
Syndergaard
Montero
Mejia
Mateo

I've also been one of the biggest proponents on this board of giving Juan Lagares and Wilmer Flores playing time, so don't pin that anti-Latino badge on me.

iViva a los jóvenes talentos, no importa de dónde vienen!
