"The R.A. Dickey trade really boosted their system, and several Latin American arms had strong years in 2012 to bolster the system's total value. First-rounder Gavin Cecchini could move quickly for a prep kid, as he's pretty advanced for a teenager and doesn't have much blocking him at shortstop.

Among other NL East teams, the Miami Marlins are ranked 16th, Atlanta Braves 20th, Washington Nationals 21st and Philadelphia Phillies 27th. "

Yeah, thought Mets would be around 10th, guess we'll wait and see how he ranks the top 100. BA had the Mets 26th but that was before the trade.

Minorleagueball's rankings:
http://www.minorleagueball.com/2013/1/28/3925786/2013-baseball-farm-system-rankings

"12) New York Mets (15): Strengths: strong at the top with trade acquisitions Zack Wheeler, Travis D'arnaud, and Noah Syndergaard all ranking as Grade A- prospects. Pitching in general is a strength, with large amount of depth behind the top group. Weaknesses: impact hitting behind D'Arnaud and Wilmer Flores."

This is what he had to say:
"It’s a top-heavy system, but the group of position players who started in low Class A Charleston last year, some of whom finished in high-A Tampa, could produce as many as three above-average or better regulars plus several other guys who’ll have big league value"

BA, Law, and Mayo all seem to like Williams, Austin, Sanchez, and Heathcott. Three pitchers fell back or got injured, but he still ranked them 10th, believe they were 10th last year too.

they like every yankee prospect and surprise surprise, every one of them turns out to be overrated

the fact is pretty much every other expert out there (excepting BA bc they are ridiculous) has the yankees farm as below average ....this genius has it top 10....

yep. only about 4-5 prospects that rate B or higher, all of them not higher than A/A+ ball and a recent history of over-rating prospects and they rank 10th? 4....FOUR....spots ahead of the mets? lol stop it Keith.

Yeah, that's why ranking middle of the pack is kind of fine, a good farm should always be graduating, so it's producing something, which drops the farms stock but not in the context of what it should be doing. Really hoping Nimmo has a great '13.

Who really cares...I'm sure if people obsessed with ratings (not accusing you) look hard enough they'll find one that rates the Mets system as high as they would like. You could probably find one that rates the Mets system as high as fifth and another that's rates it as low as 25th.
