In the mid-1990s, the New York Mets boasted a young trio of pitchers who were supposed to revive the franchise and lead the orange and blue back to its level of dominance in the 80s. 

Bill Pulsipher, Jason Isringhausen and Paul Wilson made up "Generation K," but due to various injuries, the trio never panned out. 

Fast forward almost 15 years later, and the New York Mets appear to be on the fast track to creating another three-headed monster in their farm system.
