Valdespin Gets Hazed, Learns Lesson

Garrett Olson’s Gem Wasted In Bisons 2-0 Loss

Garrett Olson had his best outing of the season, going seven innings allowing one run on two hits, walking one and striking out seven.

Josh Edgin Is Fearless

Josh Edgin has not allowed a run in his last eight outings, spanning 7.1 innings. Overall, he has racked up 18 strikeouts in 10.0 innings of work and left-handed hitters are 4-23 (.174) with 12 strikeouts against him. On Monday night, Edgin earned his first major league victory, bit in my opinion he’s earned much more than that. He’s […]

MMO Mailbag: Why Don’t The Mets Call Up Fred Lewis?

I received an interesting question from @GWNY on Twitter who asked me: Why don’t the Mets call up Fred Lewis to play LF? It’s a great question and one we’ve grappled with a couple of times in our Minor League comment threads this season. The answer as to why Lewis is still languishing in Buffalo […]
