Mets Pitching Prospects

He disputed any suggestion the minor-league system had been depleted by his trades with the Marlins, mentioning pitchers Brian Bannister, unsigned 2005 first-round pick Mike Pelfrey, 2004 first rounder Philip Humber (who should be back in mid-'06 because of Tommy John surgery) and Cuban defector Alay Soler. He added that the Mets had internally rated other pitchers higher than those shipped to the Marlins - Gaby Hernandez and Yusmeiro Petit

I took this quote from today Daily News as Omar was talking about our pitching prospects.

Amazinz - You seem to have the most Mets knwoledge regarding their prospects...Do you agree with the above quote??

Well I don't know if I'm the most knowledgeable !+) but I do agree with the quote. The deepest aspect of the Mets farm system is pitching. The Mets don't have a lot of guys who project to be top of the rotation starters (Pelfrey, Humber maybe, Soler??? who knows) but it is incredibly deep as far as guys who project to be 3-5s and relievers. Gaby Hernandez falls into that group so it really wasn't a loss. Petit on the other hand probably depends on what side of the fence you stand on. Is he the real deal or just taking advantage of immature hitters with a funky delivery? If you believe he was the real deal then the Mets thinned out the top part of their pitching depth but there's a lot still there.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
