While we wait to hear the Mets GM speak (which is currently under way) on the trading of Francisco Rodriguez to the Brewers for cash and 2 players to be named later. The Brewers GM Doug Melvin already spoke earlier today on the MLB Network Radio channel on SiriusXM with hosts Jim Memolo and Mel Antonen.
Brewersbeat posted a section of that transcript on their blog and here is what Melvin had to say when asked by Memolo how would he classify the players on that PTBNL list from which the Mets could choose from?
“I believe any player that puts a Minor League uniform on has a chance to play in the big leagues. The level they play at is determined by the players. As far as our top top guys, it’s not going to happen but they’re players that could play in the big leagues.”
So my question is what do you think “top top” means? Top 5, 10, 15, 20 or (insert # here)?
