Thomas Brennan - Mets Minor League Stats Are Incredible

Before you read on, let me say one thing: SIMPLY AMAZIN’

Out of 120 full season minor league teams (4 per major league squad), the Mets’ teams were ranked based on wins and losses as follows:


Runs

 How impressive is that?  If a single team were ranked 16 of 130, it would be ahead of 88% of all teams in win-loss.  The Mets top 4 teams AVERAGED a 16th ranking.  Incredible.
  • No other organization had 4 teams in the top 28.
  • Only the D Backs, Rangers, and (dreaded) Nationals had 3 teams in the top 28. 
  • Only 18 organizations even had 1 or more teams in the top 28, and (shucks) the Yanks had none.  Zero.  Zip.  Nada.
OK, that covers the full season teams.  Law of averages would say the rookie teams would have under-performed to balance things out, right?  Wrong.

The Mets’ 3 rookie ball teams (Brooklyn, Kingsport, and GCL St Lucie) had a combined won-loss record of 109-95 (a solid .534), which certainly had to be one of the best overall records of any organization’s combined rookie ball operation.  As often is the case, when the Mets win (as these rookies did) the pitching leads the way:
Brooklyn's outstanding staff led the NY Penn League in ERA (2.74, well ahead of the 2nd  team’s 2.97).

All in all, for an organization like the Mets, whose minor league system not too many years ago was widely disparaged, this was some incredible organization-wide performance in 2014. 

How could it not bode extremely well for the club that plays in Queens?
