Evaluating the New York Mets 40-Man Roster

Every player ranked, plus a few prospects
The Mets currently have very little money committed past 2014, and only two players with enough service to be free agent eligible — David Wright and Jonathon Niese — signed for 2014. The future is not now for this club, but the future is getting brighter.

Between the end of the World Series and Opening Day every winter, fans are inundated with lists. Rankings of the best shortstop, the best left-handed relievers, the best leadoff men, the best second basemen in runs saved, the best right-handed pinch-hitter in road games in July and more. So, while life can be rather boring without 15 baseball games every night, over the next few weeks I’ll rank players on every 40-man roster.
