For the record I don't think Peavey is going to be some star for the Mets. I just think he's a bit underrated. I'm not going to compare him to guys like Urbina or Morris who have FAR superior upside but of guys in full-season ball right now I'd say
Wheeler, Familia, Harvey, Mejia, Fulmer, Tapia, Gorski, Mazzoni are all certainly "ahead" of him if I were making rankings but I wouldn't be absolutely stunned if he's a top 10-15 guy in the system this time next year.

Ha, I know, you just defended him against his detractors. I wasn't bullish on him due to the low K rate (I think it was Toby who years ago pointed out the correlation between K rate at the lower levels and success continuing as you advance when discussing why folks should be skeptical of Antonini and the Dillon/Dylans), but they obviously saw the same you did and pushed him, and so far so good.
Personally, I put Peavey in the middle of the Mets sea of right handed control pitchers that have a chance to be backend major league starters, but whose upside is limited - Peavey, McHugh, Schwinden, Pill, and Armrod are all in this pack for me. And yes, K rate is the limiting factor for Peavey and the rest here.
