    • Flores or Fulmer in the deal?

"multiple reports indicate the Mets will also send Josh Thole and a non-elite minor leaguer to Toronto"



Mets top prospect list

http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/mlb/prospects/watch/y2012/#list=nym

Flores #3. Fulmer #8. Both those seem "elite" to me. Would have to be some other player further down the list.

non elite could be out of the top 100?

but the term "minor-leaguer" makes me less worried

top prospect would be a top 50 in mlb.
good mlb player. having some sort of multi year career.
3% might be a bit high. there are around 6800 minor league players every year. every year on average, less then 100 will play full seasons in mlb.

Fulmer isn't a throw in. he's part of a package that is bringing back 2 great prospects. one of which fills an immediate hole that we've had since mike piazza left.

you have to give to get.

being a top Mets prospect doesn't automatically make you elite.

giving up our cy young award winning pitcher isn't enough?

i'm not giving up a prospect of worth. we got what was fair value on our pitcher.

the point is to rebuild. fulmer is integral to that. so no, im not giving him up. nor flores. and i doubt sandy did.

a 38 year old 20 game winner who isn't going to be good enough to help this team come 2015 when they're actually ready to win.

that's not the point. he's going to help that team immensely. thats why theyre trading what they are. its not like theyre doing us a favor...

what happens when you constrict your bounds to top 10 prospects? top 50 is rather broad (and yes, wheeler and d'arnaud and harvey are or would be top 10 prospects).

"good mlb player. having some sort of multi year career."

chris woodward?

"3% might be a bit high. there are around 6800 minor league players every year. every year on average, less then 100 will play full seasons in mlb."

thats tenuous math at best.

Would think "elite" in THIS context means METS Top 10 (or 20) prospects. Not necessarily national rank.

http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/mlb/prospects/watch/y2012/#list=nym

1. Wheeler
2. Familia
2. Flores
4. Nimmo
5. Cecchini
6. Puello
7. Havens
8. Fulmer
9. Montero
10. Tapia

I feel like we've been projecting rosters like that with guys like Fmart, Mejia, Milledge, Flores etc etc for years now. I don't think we should get too excited until these guys are closer to being ML ready.

we've been doing that when they were in R and A ball. most of these guys have eclipsed AA (wheeler, Harvey, Familia). AA is truly the last stepping stone usually. A lot of the other guys are in A+ ball or lower, sure, but we havent had this many plus prospects in the lower levels in quite some time.
