The Sporting News has ranked the National League's top infields and the Mets come in third behind the Cardinals and the Phillies. They provide a useless blurb about each team:
Most of the club's offense is generated by the versatile infield. Reyes, sure-handed but not a particularly accurate thrower, is the only above-average defender.
Further, I'm a bit iffy on ranking the Cardinals at the top here. Sure, Pujols is amazing, and Rolen, while not as good as he once was, had a nice bounceback year in 2006. But Adam Kennedy? David Eckstein? I'm not so sure they shouldn't be third and the Phillies and the Mets each bumped up a spot, but Eck has fine defense and the Mets (Valentin) and Phillies (Wes Helms) have definite question marks for 2007. So it's a toss-up.
