And I've honestly felt the Mets' organization was vastly overrated in terms of young talent. Reyes and Wright have been studs. No doubt. But a very low rate of their prospects have done anything on the major league level. I look at Alex Escobar, Mike Pelfrey, (so far) Fernando Martinez, and right on down the line. I just don't see many of their guys producing as was hyped.
