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.
