Sandy Alderson has just completed his second year on the job as General Manager of the New York Mets. As Met fans, we have to ask ourselves whether or not this team has improved under Alderson’s leadership. The last two seasons, the Mets have been awful. Granted, he inherited a team with major flaws….or did he? Clearly, the team was saddled with crippling contracts (Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez), but as we’re learning…Omar Minaya left the minor league system in better shape than anyone originally thought possible. The fact is, many of their talented minor leaguers were buried because Minaya would sign washed up veteran players, and stockpile them at AAA, retarding the entire system.

Today I give you the third article in a series in which I go division by division, previewing rookies who could have an impact for each team for the 212 season.

I not only see a lot of rookies that could have an impact and the division this year, but a handful of very high ceiling guys that should have an impact. Enjoy.

The New York Mets system is saved from being a bottom five system thanks to a trade last year, the past two drafts, and their International signings.
The system still has a ways to go but it has some exciting arms at the top and some upside picks from the 2011 draft.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.
