WHO’S HOT? HITTERS Travis Taijeron (SAV) – The 23-year-old right-handed hitting slugger has been playing mostly CF for Savannah and has been doing it all at the plate. Drafted in the 18th round of the 2011 MLB Draft Taijeron has shown an excellent ability to make contact and hit for power in his professional career so far. This season in 40 AB’s his slash line is .350/.469/.625, with 10 runs, 14 hits, 2 2B’s, 3 HR’s, 7 […]
LEHIGH VALLEY 8 – BUFFALO 2 AAA RHP Jeurys Familia was playing with fire Monday night and his final pitching line was downright diabolical, letting up 6 runs on 6 hits and 6 walks. After four innings pitched, manager Wally Backman had seen enough and promptly exorcised Familia from the mound in favor of right-hander Dylan Owen. The 25 year old reliever quickly allowed two more runs to cross the plate as things completely spiraled […]
BUFFALO 10 – PAWTUCKET 9 AAA The Herd charged back in dramatic fashion last night as they came from six runs down in the middle of the sixth inning, to win the game against Pawtucket in 10 innings, on a walk-off hit by Jordany Valdespin which gave Buffalo a 10-9 victory. The comeback started in the bottom of the sixth with the score 9-3 in favor of Pawtucket. Andrew Miller had just come on to pitch in […]
PAWTUCKET 9 – BISONS 6 AAA The Bisons were out-slugged for the second day in a row, this time it was the Pawtucket PawSox who branded them with the loss on Saturday afternoon in Buffalo. A crucial fielding error by Zach Lutz in the fifth inning opened the floodgates to five unearned runs, and as a great baseball genius once said, “that’s the ball game.” Second-baseman Bobby Scales came a triple shy of the cycle […]
BUFFALO BISONS AAA The SWB Yankees pounded out 7 runs on 13 hits as they lassoed the Herd Friday afternoon in Buffalo by a score of 7-5. The loss drops Buffalo’s record this year to 4-5. Chase Whitley (1-0), pitching in relief of starter D.J. Mitchell, picked up the win by throwing four scoreless innings, striking out three, and only giving up one hit. Kevin Whelan gave up a run in the ninth, but still […]
BUFFALO BISONS AAA The Bisons got corralled Thursday afternoon by a score of 7-2 at the hands of the SWB Yankees in Buffalo. A three-run second off Chris Schwinden, and a three-run seventh off Jeff Stevens would provide the Yankees with all the scoring they would need, and they added a solo homer by Steve Pearce off Daniel Herrera in the fifth. Schwinden who struggled mightily with his command, pitched four innings and took the […]
I know the news has been relatively good about the injury to DWright’s pinkie. The prognosis is favorable, like the weather forecast for this weekend. But somehow I feel more sure about the weather being warm and sunny, than I do about Wright being able to play against the Phillies this weekend. Sure, it’s early in the year and we’ve got some guys who can fill in, like Turner and Cedeno….temporarily. But what if this […]
On day two of my trip to Bingo, I am reminded of the words Julius Caesar presumably penned in 47 B.C.: Veni, Vidi, Vici. Translation: I came, I saw, I conquered. I think that sums up my triumphant road trip to Binghamton rather nicely. At least I came and I saw, and I guess I did conquer the cold, but it was the B-Mets that really did the conquering when they picked up their first win […]
In the words of Mark Twain, “The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.” An excellent thought but obviously Mr. Twain never saw a baseball game at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY on a Friday night at the beginning of April. Wow, it really gives new meaning to the phrase “chilled to the bone” I can tell you that much. I had arrived in Binghamton at around noon on Friday after making […]
