I'm curious if anyone has any info in the players that the Mets have gotten in their recent trades. Ring looks pretty good and like he'll be up next season sometime and Diaz (2b) also looks to be a pretty good hitter. But the others are total mysteries to me.
Anybody know anything?
I like the Burnitz deal for the Mets. None of the three guys they received are big-name prospects, but they're all solid players who could turn into contributors in time. They won't pay instant dividends, but that's not what the Mets were after. Nice job starting to restock their minor league system.
im a metsfan and all but the prospects are unproven and they just got burnitz last season and he starts to get good and then they trade him for minor leaguers cmon! and benitez who is supposed to replace him huh maybe cerda can he throw 100 or can the minor leaguers. yeah didn't think so.
Metsfan- Thank you for your insightful and well written reply. Well done.
Also, I agree that I like the prospects from the Burnitz deal from what I can tell. The Mets will always have money to go after the big name players. If they could just get a solid surrounding cast and then go out and sign a free agent or two then they could be a pretty good team in a couple of years. I just wish I could find more info on these guys they're getting in these trades... Anybody know any good sites that discuss prospects in-depth?
I've probably answered this one at leas five times in this forum.... The Mets have done a good job in stacking up their farm system the last year or so. No more Alomar, no more Cedeno, no more Burnitz....The future is Wright, Duncan, Heilman and co.
