    2018 NY Mets Minor League and Prospect Thread

    1. Andres Gimenez, SS
    2. David Peterson, LHP
    3. Justin Dunn, RHP
    4. Pete Alonso, 1B
    5. Thomas Szapucki, LHP
    6. Mark Vientos, SS/3B
    7. Marcos Molina, RHP
    8. Desmond Lindsay, OF
    9. Chris Flexen, RHP
    10. Luis Guillorme, 2B/SS

    Notable Graduations: SS Amed Rosario (1), 1B Dominic Smith (2) and OF Brandon Nimmo (5) finished the season as regulars, while RHP Robert Gsellman (7) logged 120 innings.

    Trending: 🔻Down following myriad graduations.



    SYSTEM OVERVIEW

    STRENGTHS:
    The Mets used recent first-round picks on college lefthanders Anthony Kay and David Peterson, who pair with Thomas Szapucki to give the club southpaw depth they haven't seen in years. The Mets' international program continues to funnel prospects through the system, particularly projectable Latin American shortstops like Andres Gimenez, Ronny Mauricio and Sebastian Espino.

    WEAKNESSES: After graduating the likes of Michael Conforto, Steven Matz, Amed Rosario and Noah Syndergaard (and trading Michael Fulmer) in the past three years, the system lacks blue-chip prospects. In particular, the Mets are short on power bats (aside from Pete Alonso) and top-of-the-rotation-type arms.

    Getting a JP Crawford feeling about Gimenez.

    Mets outright 5 players

    The Mets began their offseason roster maintenance on Thursday, outrighting five players off their 40-man roster, per a club announcement. Among the cuts were right-handers Tyler Pill and Erik Goeddel, outfielders Travis Taijeron and Wuilmer Becerra, and infielder Phillip Evans. -- mlbtr

    Really thought Beccera could have been a steal in that Dickey trade. Oh well.

    The Mets are going to regret letting Phillip Evans go as the dude can hit. He also has a great arm and would be good at 3B. I understand them letting everyone else go but not this guy.

    I don't understand. He won a batting title last year. He showed well in the few at bats they gave him during his call up. They need a third baseman.

    And now he's gone.

    I don't understand.

    Yeah Phil Evans being let go doesn't make any sense. He looked pretty good!

    So many political references to be made here. But I'll be a good boy and refrain.

    Yea, we can't be critical of managements decisions because we don't have all the information needed to give an educated analysis, right? Right?

    All managers, GMs, and owners are good at their jobs as far as fans are concerned because we simply don't have all the information available to us.

    Critical Thinking 101

    Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.

    In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.
