Down on the Farm System Applesauce - Not Much Value in Minors, Mets Rotation is Smart

New, 59 comments

John Sickels' Farm System rankings are out, and the value of the Mets farm system comes in at an awfully low 25th place.

Chris Capuano says his arm is feeling great, and there's evidence to back up his claims.  Speaking of pitchers recovering from injury named Chris, Men's Journal conducted a pretty great interview with Chris Young not too long ago, brought to us by Metszilla.  With Capuano in the fold and Young a possible addition, the Mets have constructed quite the intelligent rotation.

Much has been made of home runs, or the lack thereof, at Citi Field, but what about home runs in the Polo Grounds, the first ballpark the Mets called home?

It's been a rough couple of years for Scott Schoeneweis since he left the Mets, but he is looking to pitch in the big leagues this year.

After Jeff Bagwell didn't receive the votes to make the Hall of Fame this year because of rumors of steroid use, Mike Piazza's name and quotations on the subject were brought up again.

On a tragic note, one of the victims in the Arizona shooting was the granddaughter of former Mets manager Dallas Green.

Around Major League Baseball

The Chicago Cubs pulled off a trade for Matt Garza over the weekend.

When Sandy Alderson took the job with the Mets, he left a void in the offices of Major League Baseball, and rumor has it Joe Torre might be taking Sandy's old job as Executive Vice President of Operations.

The Mets have some question marks in their bullpen heading into 2011, but elsewhere in the division, could the Nationals bullpen be something special?
