Sherman :Minaya’s ‘mess’ is what’s saving Alderson’s Mets now

Omar Minaya’s fingerprints remain indelible on the major league team. You could argue the Mets’ five best players to date have been Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, Juan Lagares, Dillon Gee and Jonathon Niese.

All were drafted or signed internationally in a fertile 2006-08 period when Minaya’s Mets brought in a shipload of players who would reach the majors such as Joe Smith, Jose Quintana, Ike Davis, Josh Stinson, Josh Satin, Maikel Cleto, Collin McHugh, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Wilmer Flores, Jeurys Familia, Jenrry Mejia, Gonzalez Germen and Ruben Tejada. The parting gift came in 2010 – Minaya’s final draft – when the Mets selected Matt Harvey in the first round.
