Yesterday, in the New York Post Mike Puma wrote that "manager Terry Collins is preparing to name Luis Hernandez the starter at second base."? There were many reasons to be skeptical of this assertion.

First, it ran counter to the Mets' original plan of a four-headed competition between Luis Castillo, Daniel Murphy, Brad Emaus and Justin Turner.

Second, there was zero confirmation of the Post report elsewhere.? In fact, there were a number of direct refutations.? Among them:

Today, Project Prospect, posted their Top 100 prospect rankings. Six Mets prospects appeared on the list, starting with Reese Havens (42), Matt Harvey (48), Fernando Martinez (53), Jenrry Mejia (83), Brad Emaus (94), and Wilmer Flores (100).? Players are given grades rated on ceiling, floor, and risk.?? Washington Nationals prospect Bryce Harper ranks #1 overall.

Project Prospect differs slightly in their compiling of rankings.? They indicate they put a lot of value on a players floor as well as ceiling. They will be holding a chat for these rankings starting at around 9:30pm est, here.

Last week, Michael Diaz compared the minor league numbers of Brad Emaus and Justin Turner, two of the competitors for the Mets' second-base job this spring.

Here's the problem with Emaus, he's never hit outside of Las Vegas above advanced-A.? Last season, playing as a 24-year-old in AAA, he hit .298/.395/.495 with 25 doubles, 10 HR and 50 BB and 50 K in 309 AB in 87 games.? Statistically oriented people salivate over his 1:1 BB:K ratio.? That's all good stuff, but there's a major missing piece of information.

Check out his home and road splits.

Brad Emaus and Justin Turner should both get an opportunity to showcase their talents during spring training.? Let's look at their career minor league numbers, and compare the two.
