Mets Morning News: Duda Staying In Right, Alderson Is Fixing The FarmSystem

Terry Collins told reporters yesterday that he plans to have Lucas Duda as his right fielder in 2012. If Angel Pagan does not return with the team next season, they are going to look outside of the organization for a new center fielder. Why look outside the organization? Just like the fans, Collins does not want to see an outfield made up of Duda, Jason Bay, and Daniel Murphy.

Tim Bontemps of the NY Post takes a look at how Sandy Alderson has turned around the Mets farm system.
After years of strictly adhering to MLB’s bonus recommendations for draft picks, the Mets broke from that formula in June’s First-Year Player Draft. That allowed the organization to acquire several high-upside prospects like first-round pick Brandon Nimmo, a high school outfielder from Wyoming, and 15th-round selection Phil Evans, a high school shortstop from California.
