Mets Farm Report: June 7th, 2011

An article by posted on June 8, 2011 0 Comments

Buffalo Bisons 4 | Indianapolis Indians 13 Tonight ended a stretch of three quality starts in a row for Josh Stinson and boy was it awful. The 2nd inning was an inning where you feel bad for the pitcher as you sit there and watch hit after hit. There was nothing he could throw that […]

Mets Showing a Change in Philosphy for the Better

Mets fans can take a deep breathe and relax. Sandy Alderson, Paul DePodesta, and crew did not screw up this first round like one would think from reading the Mets blogosphere following the selection. I’ll start this off by saying people need to realize the Baseball America player rankings are not the be-all and end-all. […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 | Gwinnett Braves 4 I did not get to watch as much as this game as I would have liked because I was focusing on the draft, but I hope to take a closer look at it tomorrow. From what I did see, I liked the way Chris Schwiden was throwing tonight. […]

Sandy Alderson has made his first pick as general manager of the New York Mets. With the 13th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the Mets have selected Brandon Nimmo, and outfielder from Wyoming. Nimmo did not play high school baseball because there is no high school baseball league in Wyoming. He only played […]

2011 First Year Player Draft: Time For DePodesta To Shine

2011 First Year Player Draft: Time For DePodesta To Shine

So far this season, we’ve seen Sandy Alderson successfully navigate his way with very little cash on hand to do the things he probably would have wanted and preferred. He rolled the dice on a few players and lost some and won some, but to his credit, the Mets are still relevant. Terry Collins has […]

Terry Shuffles Lineup, Who Should Bat Cleanup?

An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

I like what Collins did in finally moving Bay down in the order.  I know it was made easier because guys like Murphy, Turner and Pagan are hitting so well right now.  But, it was a much deserved demotion for Jason who has not been the player we thought we were signing.  WIth Bay out […]

Carlos Beltran Is Day To Day

An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

The Mets are calling Carlos Beltran’s injury a “right leg contusion” after  X-rays were taken and came back negative. They are classifying him as day to day. Beltran left Sunday’s game after fouling a ball off the inside of his right shin in the second inning. He finished the at-bat, striking out against Tim Hudson, but then walked off the field gingerly […]

Mets Farm Report: June 5th, 2011

An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

Buffalo Bisons 5 | Gwinnett Braves 7 This game was nowhere near as close as the score would dictate. Mike Minor pitched the most dominating minor league performances I’ve watched all year throwing a near perfect game, giving up just  a walk and hit in the 7th inning. He made Kirk Nieuwenhuis look silly during […]
