    beyond that its definitely harder to find a good catcher thats good both offensively and defensively than it is to find a power hitting outfielder...we still need a middle of the order power bat to protect David Wright though

    Ahh .. so that's why we're so well-stocked with MLB-caliber outfielders ...

    The real question is when was the last time a major league caliber catcher came up through our system?

    No, that's a different question. My question is, if outfielders are so easy to come by, how come we don't have ANY?

    Well, I was just responding to YoungStuna.

    And the Mets haven't has any recent luck with outfielding prospects, but there are still a good amount of OF prospects in the farm. We just have had bad luck with some outfielders in the past (i.e. Lastings Milledge, Fernando Martinez).

    I wouldn't say that they're so easy to come by that every team has a top tier OF propsect or major leaguer, but they are much easier to come by than catchers.

    If it was just Myers VS D'Arnaud, I would have taken Myers. But since it was really a three for one (Buck, Thole, Nickeas are just throw ins),I'm happy over the results. Good catcher, good pitcher, and a good draft pick in the outfielder.

    If we were drafting, where would the outfielder fall we got from Toronto.

    That's a very fair question, and the answer is this. If you don't draft them, acquire them in a trade or sign them via Free agency, you won't have them.
