One step forward (opening day win), two steps back...

As expected. Torres aggravated his left calf injury during Thursday's opener and will head down to Port St. Lucie on Friday to begin the rehab process. Scott Hairston figures to see the bulk of the playing time in center field during his absence while Vinny Rottino and Kirk Nieuwenhuis are among the potential call-ups.

Don't get me wrong with this comment because I am completely in favor of poking fun at the mets in any way possibly, but this isn't a particularly funny joke.

Here's a response that I made on my twins board (www.battleyourtailoff.com). How many prospects did the Mets mess up with their fast track approach in the last 5-10 years? guerra turns 23 in a few weeks and he was 17 in high A ball in 2006.

Jesus, Deolis Guerra is still at New Britain. He's progressed exactly one level since 2006.


blame that on the Mets. He's still the youngest pitcher for the Rock Cats and 2nd youngest player (Hicks).

However I am a little surprised that he's not in AAA but I'm guessing there is a roster crunch of mediocre veterans occupying too many slots.

Humor is subjective. As a lifelong Mets fan, poking fun at them helps ease the pain of numerous heartbreak.

I find it hard to remember any prospects the Mets traded away who turned out good sans Scott Kazmir for awhile.

Johan for Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra, and Kevin Mulvey (Busts all around here - 4th outfielder, two pitchers who can barely earn a roster spot, and another trapped in MILB for eternity)
Delgado for Mike Jacobs and Yusmeiro Petit (Petit had star upside, Jacobs had pop and seemed like he could be a regular longer than he was, both are already out of MLB)
Alomar for Alex Escobar (Supposed to be as can't miss a prospect as possible, legendary bust here)
Lo Duca for Gaby Hernandez

Of course, the Mets kept many others like Milledge and F-Mart to screw up on their own.

To be fair I find it hard to remember anyone the Mets have drafted that would be considered a good prospect sans Milledge. Carp might be the only player drafted post-Kazmir that was traded and found time in the majors.

The Mets traded away good prospects, just Milledge and Escobar were the only superstar prospects. Escobar had peaked as a prospect when he was traded but wasn't viewed as a total bust yet, then he tore his ACL and his career was basically over. Yusmeiro Petit was ranked 69 in the 2006 BA Top 100, his ranking took a hit from 2005 when it was clear he has a polished prospect but viewed strictly as a #3/innings eater type guy, still a good prospect. Gomez was ranked 60th, had the speed and glove but was a tools guy who didn't pan out. Guerra had a ton of upside before the Mets ruined him by rushing him along and Humber was considered solid also.
