From Complex To Queens, Episode 159: No Rule 5 Draft

With the lockout over, the team discusses how the new agreement will (and already has!) impacted the Mets minor league system

From Complex to Queens Logo

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system.

With the Ides of March almost upon us, the team discusses Mets players who had their careers cut short, much like Julius Cesar had his cut short, in Promote, Extend, Trade.

After that, they give updates on their Way-Too-Early Draft Special players of interest.

Following that, Steve, Lukas, Ken, and Thomas discuss the fallout of the Chris Bassitt for JT Ginn & Adam Oller trade. Who won? Are we happy? Are we sad? Nothing really matters, anyone can see; Nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me!

Wrapping things up, the team talks about how the lockout affected the Mets 40-man roster, the implications of the cancellation of the Rule 5 Draft, and who they would’ve wanted to have seen drafted if the process had taken place back in December uninterrupted.
