Haven't heard of anyone else linked to the Mets.



Yeah, a bit depressing we're not rumored to be in on anyone else :(

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Tommy Tanous is still running the international scouting operation so in a way Brodie's guys are Sandy's guys.

That's asinine if true IMO


I don't have a subscription to BA, but most of Ben Badler's recent work seems to point directly to that....

That is interesting for sure.

A lot can change in a kid's growth from say, 16 to 20.

But to try to predict ahead for a 13 year old is WOW.

That was the main reason BA is not doing a top 50 list this year. Badler said that 14 year olds are now committing to teams. Said that once a player commits the other organizations quit pursing that player. Therefore those players rarely play in games or attend showcases. So, he said basically that scouting reports they have on 16 year olds are two years old. He didn't feel it was fair to post reports and rank players, based from that long ago, since players will greatly change in a two year period. I tend to agree with his point but as a fan it sucks when trying to find any info on players your teams may be interested in signing.

Brodie's team is negotiating with guys for 2022.

I don't think the dollar amount is worked out at the age of 13, but there's some articles that suggest the team that the kid will sign for is worked out ahead of time. That's why, one year the mets will get 2 guys in the top 10 and another year they'll get nobody or like 1 guy at the back end of the top 30. It's a crap shoot.

Mets officially sign Alexander Ramirez
https://twitter.com/BenBadler/status/11 ... 1837611008

Jesse Sanchez had tweeted he signed for $2.1 million but it got deleted so not sure it's an accurate number.

The depth at the lower levels of the system is very good right now. Unfortunately for the near future that doesn't mean to much for the Mets.

Glad to see them signing this kid. Hope there is a few more behind it that we can get excited about.

The Mets have also been linked to outfielder Yeral Martinez, and are also expected to sign left-handed pitcher Fraudy Vizcaino and right-handed pitcher Jose Dominguez of the Dominican Republic.
