I’ve gotten several posts about the Mets not having much of a farm system. There’s no real argument to refute that.
However, he’s a thought. The Mets have five prospects who could be playing this year or next: Mike Pelfrey, Phil Humber, Kevin Mulvey, Fernando Martinez and Carlos Gomez.
If the issue is building the farm system, why not keep this core and let it develop? You will always be years behind if you throw young talent to fill every hole.
Sometimes, the best move is no move, especially when you have a team that can be good enough to complete for the playoffs as is … and with the luxury of a wild-card.
