John Sickels

John Sickels at minorleagueball.com has revised his Mets' Top 20 prospects to reflect the inclusion of Travis d'Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard who he places #1 and #3, with Zack Wheeler in between, just as I suggested over the weekend.

His list:

1. C Travis d'Arnaud

A reader puts a dollar value on John Sickels Farm System Rankings.

There are a number of methodological issues (like taking the average value for all C-level prospects rather than by parceling them out by age to produce a more accurate value) that prevent me from putting too much stock in the precise numbers.? However, as an overall feel-type exercise, I think this has value.? Mets position player prospects outpace their pitching side counterparts $44.3 million to $33.9.? The Mets ranked 25th in baseball in expected value.? Given Sickels' initial rankings of Mets players, where he assigned one B+ and two Bs, this should not have been very surprising.
