At ESPN.com, Keith Law has ranked all 30 Major League farm systems, slotting the Mets in at #14 – almost exactly middle of the pack. Law had the Cardinals #1 and the Angels #30.

His comment on the Mets:

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.

The Mets are the highest ranked NL East team. Law’s rankings for the Mets other divisional brethren:

Marlins (17)
Braves (20)
Nationals (21)
Phillies (27)
