Three Quick Links

Exactly what the title says:

1. Paul DePodesta, the Mets’ VP in charge of Scouting and Player Development — who is definitely not Peter Brand in Moneyball — stopped by Baseball Prospectus today to take questions. Plenty of juicy info on the Mets’ minor league system, and D3PO also reveals the Mets player his kids are most fond of. (Hint: It’s not Frank Francisco.)

2. Amazin’ Avenue finished up their annual Make-The-Mets-O-Meter today. Here’s a link to the hitters making the Mets, and those banished to the high minors. Here’s the pitchers.

3. Ted Berg is posting his annual Season in Preview series, in which he previews the Mets’ upcoming season . . . probably didn’t need to explain that. Here’s the second basemen in preview.

4. I lied, there’s a fourth thing. The Mets will play their final Spring tune-up against the Yankees tomorrow in Tampa, Florida. Let’s honor the occasion with a dramatically underused picture of Derek Jeter (with Alex Rodriguez’s eyes and mouth), photoshopped by the brilliant Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Fly Ball:
