New York Mets Top 20 Prospects for 2012 – Minor League Ball

The king of prospects weighs in on the Mets.
There’s ample reason for optimism here, especially on the pitching side. It is important not to figure on any particular prospect, especially a pitcher. So it is less the impressive reports on Wheeler, Familia and Harvey, and more that all three of them exist simultaneously.
To me, the only thing mitigating optimism over Sandy Alderson’s overhauling of the farm system is the question of how much he’ll be able to spend on next year’s draft. For all their financial problems, the Wilpon group allowed Alderson to go over slot on a bunch of picks-Philip Evans’ presence in the team’s top 20 is just one result. But cutting corner could affect any aspect of the team’s expenditures. And with greater penalties for going over slot from the new collective bargaining agreement, even the same financial situation could produce additional restrictions from above.
That said, there are plenty of minor leaguers to track, and the management team understands that rushing them would be foolish, no matter the struggles at higher levels.
