"Problem" with Alonso is counting him is almost double dipping. Alonso and Smith will never be in the lineup at the same time so absolute best case is what? A platoon? A trade chip? The organization themselves seems WAY down on Cecchini. Boyd is a total NP and further, what scenario would Alonso AND Boyd help the Mets with Smith here? It's a very ugly list for 2018 and made worse by the fact Conlon apparently is now an RP and Molina is still being viewed as pre-TJ Molina whereas most who have seen him say his FB barely broke 90 this season.

Well, yeah. My point is, I don't think this system is lacking any in those guys. I think we are more lacking in blue chip type talents.

I don't think it will be that difficult to do a top 30, or find some guys worth mentioning past 30. If anything, all those trades for pen arms might make that even easier than normal. I never really thought it worth going 50 deep, I think you are always going to get into guys then that don't really even deserve the C grade.

But I think it's going to be pretty hard right now to put together a top 10 that doesn't look kind of embarrassing. I think we're short on top 100 talents, not C+ lottery tickets.

Gotta pray Vientos/Gimenez/Peterson are "what you think they are", that Dunn and Lindsay bounce back and a guy like Mauricio is legit. Not a ton to dream on otherwise. Maybe Kay comes in and looks like a solid 3-4

I think Paul Seward will have a huge year for Vegas.

Well yeah, you always need chips.

I think I saw someone recently arguing that the Mets would never be able to pull off a good offseason trade, because they absolutely need guys like Lindsay and Dunn, which made no sense to me either. There's really no one in this system right now who is good enough to be "untouchable" in a trade scenario. But there are guys who could be useful chips.

The Mets have graduated enough guys in recent years that they don't necessarily need to have guys who will be graduating in 2018. But they could use some guys to step up in 2018 with good seasons whether it's to become trade chips, injury replacements, or to temporarily break in as bench players.

Not to mention that Alonso on his current trajectory could torpedo Smith a year from now if Dom isn't careful.

I'm hoping Robert Gsellman, Zack Wheeler, Hansel Robles, and Travis d'Arnaud do as well.

The other day I spoke to a writer who said he liked Alonso's bat more than Dom's but that RH 1b is a tough profile but more importantly "Alonso isn't a major league 1b if 2017 is an indication of his fitness and mobility going forward". I assume with the error totals even he recognizes this.

Alonso is never going to be a platoon or bench bat.

He's either going to be a starter or he's not going to be a major leaguer.

Guy said he's seen Alonso be "average/passable" at 1b but that it wasn't the case according to "any" of the scouts he spoke to this season and he had put on an "extreme" amount of weight since being drafted.

Alonso is the type of player SandyCo should be advocating a DH in the National League for.
