Meet the Mets
A day after releasing his ranking of MLB farm systems, Keith Law revealed his Top 100 prospects in baseball. Five Mets cracked the list: Noah Syndergaard (#24), Travis d'Arnaud (#36), Dominic Smith (#37), Rafael Montero (#60), and Brandon Nimmo (#92).
Syndergaard took some time to answer fan questions on the @MLBFutures Twitter account. Among other things, Syndergaard revealed his favorite player is Roy Halladay, he grew up a Texas Rangers fan, he hasn't had a carb in over three years, and he likes twerking.
