According to AA out top prospect is a rich man's Ruben Tejada.

Our 2nd prospect is a backend SP.

And our 3rd prospect:

But, just like the odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 1:292,201,338, the odds of everything going right for Desmond Lindsay and the Mets, and the young outfielder developing into the average-to-above-average major league center fielder he could be are equally slim.


It's practically a fantasy to even "dream" on an "average" CF.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

We have nobody in the top 100. That's kind of par for the course for a system with no players in the top 100. I think things could look a lot better next year if things go right, or only a tiny bit better if they don't (I'd be shocked if it gets worse, I don't think that's reasonably possible).

I think his upside is better than the 2011 tejada example that gets thrown out there so often. 2011 Tejada has a .060 ISO. That's Luis Castillo territory (Castillo career had .061). Just cause a guy doesn't project to have a lot of power, that doesn't mean he should be compared to a player who had zero power, who hit 1 homer over his first 200 games. Tejada was a freak in how little power he had.

I said it before and I'll say it again. Tejada's a bad comp. He should only be used to compare to players who have zero power projection (Guillorme perhaps). He shouldn't be used as a comp for light power projection. Gimenez at least has light power projection in the 5-9 home range and that puts him above Tejada. The comparison makes me shake my head and writers do it because they're lazy and they use a familiar example rather than an accurate one.
