As 2010 comes to a close, it's time to take a look and evaluate the state of the Met farm system. It's not exactly pretty. Baseball Prospectus lists only Jenrry Mejia as a five-star prospect. Brian Joura at Mets360 taps Wilmer Flores as the team's top prospect, a three star prospect at BP. I don't worry too much about these rankings at the moment. We all know that Alderson and company have a lot of work to do, but it'll get done and I expect the situation to be significantly improved by this time next year.
