Found September 30, 2011 on MetsOnline:

No one has been more critical of the former general manager than myself. But, when you criticize what needs to be criticized, you have to praise what needs to be praised.

Minaya should get credit for finding the following players:

  1. Justin Turner
  2. (Daniel Murphy) – too old now?
  3. Ruben Tejada
  4. Lucas Duda
  5. Dillon Gee
  6. Josh Thole

…or, essentially, the youth of the 2011 Mets.

There a couple other players that you can argue for; but, those six are the “solid” youngsters at the Major League level that Minaya brought in.
