Frankie Piliere of AOL Fanhouse released his list of the Top 100 Prospects in MLB and much to the surprise of those who continually say the Mets system doesn't have any prospects, Piliere thinks otherwise.According to his rankings, the Mets have three, which based on my basic math skills and my understanding that the Major Leagues have thirty teams would seem to be average:
I'm going to forgive Piliere for spelling Mejia's first name "Jennry" and instead focus on his kind words about the prospect:
- Mejia looks like of one of the most exciting pitching prospects the Mets have had in quite some time. He can reach the upper 90s with his fastball and has learned to pitch effectively and more frequently with his secondary pitches. The Mets will try to take it slow with this powerful young arm. We could see him in 2011.
So those among us who wanted the Mets to get a starting pitcher, lets make some vacation plans, get a hobby or otherwise find something to occupy our 2010. But be sure to keep 2011 free, it sounds like our wish might finally come true.
