Serious question... the guy who voted for Flexen last poll. Did you really feel Flexen was #1? Because either our system is even worse than I think or I’m missing something when I watch Flexen...


If Flexen is our best prospect then we have no prospects.



:lol:

He's also a gym rat and has never been in less than ideal shape. He's not skinny-fat like Tejada or Wilmer.

Odd bodies- Chris Flexen and Phil Evans. Corey Taylor also struck me as looking like a beer leaguer when I saw him.

But Flex is like 6'4". Evans certainly doesn't have a great body and is clearly maxed out. Would be great if he dropped 10 lbs. Likewise there is no physical projection for Guillorme at 5'9" 200+.

Jeff P called Flexen "Body By Broxton", which made me laugh.

Flexen IS 6'4 but he has a very odd build. He looks like a refrigerator or something. I'm not even saying odd bodies can't work, just noting ones that stand out.

Corey Oswalt is another guy who is built like he throws 98, but, uh, doesn't.

0 Mets make the NY/Penn top 20 prospects


I wonder if any get honorable mention. Maybe I should ask this question in chat. "How hard did you guys laugh while discussing the Mets prospects?"

Who's our best prospect in Brooklyn? Rasquin? Medina (hitter not pitcher), The injured Matt Winaker? Worse than Binghamton in terms of prospects. There's just nothing there.



Brooklyn was pretty horrible and their record was well deserved. Walter Rasquin, however, as short as he is, may actually be a prospect.....

This poll is going about how I expected. Though I did expect Vientos to be in the top 3 and now it looks as if he "could" fall out of the top 3.

This list already is becoming very depressing....

I went with Alonso and am hoping Anthony Kay is listed for the next round.....can always hope that Peterson and Kay could be #3 or #4 starters in a couple of years and since we have seen little or nothing from them yet, we cannot point out their poor performances yet (but yes, this is a real yawn....)

I actually do see a bright light coming from the DR...possibly a lot of B to C+ prospects in the works (unfortunetly no B+ or better,,..no standouts but some pretty good youngsters, with hope that some of them have decent ceilings). Need to replace Brooklyn's roster with the best from DR-2 and DR-1 rosters next year.
