With the way Ike Davis has been hitting lately, there has been a ton of talk has about sending the slumping lefty down to Triple-A to try and figure things out. With good reason, some are questioning whether or not Davis is the first baseman of the future anymore. Everyone is chiming in on how to fix the situation. The fixes range from have Lucas Duda playing first base, to moving Daniel Murphy over to [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped to Omaha 5-4. Binghamton had the night off. St. Lucie lost to Brevard County in the bottom of the ninth, 3-2. Savannah topped Augusta in eleven innings, 6-0. Prospect Pipeline Rainy Lara — the name Rainy is fitting considering the fact that opposing teams are probably hoping for rain every time this kid steps on the mound. Last night’s stat line is utterly ridiculous, as he pitched eight complete [...]
Noah Syndergaard took the hill for the St. Lucie Mets tonight, and continued to dominate hitters at the Single-A level. He was bringing 96 mph heat, and mixing in his change-up and curve ball all night. The curve ball was the sharpest it’s looked all year, as he snapped off hook after hook that either left hitters frozen in their stance, or left them swinging wildly like they were trying to hit mosquitoes out of the sky. [...]
I was driving in to work and listening to WFAN today, much like I would on any other day. I happened to hear Joe & Evan discussing some quotes from LaTroy Hawkins and Marlon Byrd regarding the incident that took recently place with Jordany Valdespin, when he got hit by a pitch, in what seemed to be a show of revenge from tossing his bat after a home run, in a lopsided loss to the [...]
Mets Minors Report 5/16: Wheeler’s Fine, Puello and Boyd Flattening Baseballs, Syndergaard On The Hill Tonight
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas had the night off. Binghamton dropped Akron, 9-4. St. Lucie shot themselves in the foot against Brevard County, 4-3. Savannah lost to Charleston, 6-3. Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler‘s MRI didn’t show any structural damage, but one has to wonder what could have cause so much inflammation in his throwing shoulder, that he would need a cortisone shot. Hopefully this isn’t a situation where the cortisone masks the pain and [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped to Albuquerque, 5-2. Binghamton topped Akron, 5-3. St. Lucie dropped to Brevard County, 6-5. Savannah lost to Charleston, 5-3. Injury News The Wheeler Watch has taken a turn…hopefully not for the worst. Adam Rubin has reported that Zack Wheeler will miss his next start due to discomfort in his clavicle, and is flying to NY to meet with doctors. I’m not an injury expert, but I do [...]
The Dominator took to the mound for the Binghamton Mets tonight, in temperatures that made it seem more like an April night in the upstate New York city, than a night in the middle of May. Rafael Montero stood on the mound, with his glove in front of his face, so the batter could only see a pair of eyes staring in, and his mouth breathing steam like a locomotive. He didn’t shut down Akron [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped Albuquerque, 4-3. Binghamton split a double header with Harrisburg, 3-1 and 9-3. St. Lucie had an off day. Savannah lost to Rome, 4-1. Prospect Pipeline Wheeler Watch: Joe D. thinks the timing is right, everyone likes what they see (including Wally Backman — see below), and the Mets could us a jolt…one more solid start and Zack Wheeler may be packing his bags for Queens. What’s that? You have nothing [...]
Zack Wheeler took the hill tonight for Las Vegas, and was locked into cruise control for the majority of the night. He threw 99 pitches, 61 for strikes. Wheeler had seven strike outs and only allowed one walk to his final batter. That last comment is music to a lot of peoples’ ears. Wheeler looked good the entire night. He gave up a run early in the first inning, but he wasn’t getting knocked around. [...]
The draft is slowly creeping up on us, and is now less than a month away. It’s do or die time for scouts, and for some draft hopefuls, coming down to the wire to show that they deserve a shot to call baseball their profession. On June 6, everyone is expecting the Houston Astros to take Stanford Pitcher, Mark Appel, with the first pick in the draft. After that, it’s really anyone’s guess. The Mets [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas toppled Round Rock, 6-5. Binghamton was no-hit by and dropped to Harrisburg, 6-1. St. Lucie destroyed Palm Beach, 17-1. Savannah topped Rome, 3-1. Prospect Pipeline Word on the street is that Zack Wheeler could be making his major league debut very soon…like in two more weeks. “Personally, I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues, and rightfully [...]
