I don't think there's one boilerplate method. I lived through Paul Wilson, Bill Pulsipher and Jason Isringhausen coming up through the Mets farm system as the next Glavine, Maddux and Smoltz. I do lean on proven players over prospects every single time though.Well I mean they have the number 1 farm system headlined by an almost sure fire star in tatis jr. And when you sign Machado to at least 5 years guaranteed, they’re not exactly rushing anyone.
How else would you expect a team to get good? Sign a bunch of mediocre free agents? That sure panned out well for the Mets and giants these past few years
