Law ranks Mets' farm system 14th
By Adam Rubin
ESPN's Keith Law has ranked the Mets' farm system as No. 14 in baseball.
The R.A. Dickey trade really boosted their system, and several Latin American arms had strong years in 2012 to bolster the system's total value. First-rounder Gavin Cecchini could move quickly for a prep kid, as he's pretty advanced for a teenager and doesn't have much blocking him at shortstop.
Among other NL East teams, the Miami Marlins are ranked 16th, Atlanta Braves 20th, Washington Nationals 21st and Philadelphia Phillies 27th.
