Buffalo Bisons (Triple A) Team Report Surprise surprise, there won’t be any stretch-run for “the Herd” in 2011. Manager Tim Teufel and his staff have done a wonderful job, considering their roster has been raped and pillaged all season long by the major league team’s unquenchable thirst for replacement players. With virtually the entire opening day starting line-up of the Bisons either on the Mets right now, or injured (Captain Kirk), Teufel has had to mix [...]
David Wright went 2-for-2 with a run scored and reached base four times during Wednesday night’s 5-2 win for St. Lucie over the Clearwater Threshers. “I feel good,” Wright said. “I DH’ed today and it was more of trying to get some at-bats before I head out. I ended up getting around 30 at-bats, so hopefully I’m ready to go.” Wright has gotten on base and scored at least one run in all six games he’s played since [...]
The Mets have activated Jose Reyes from the disabled list as expected, and optioned Ruben Tejada to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for Reyes on the roster they. Surprising… Additionally, Mike Nickeas is on his way to Citi Field, a sign that catcher Josh Thole will likely be put on paternity leave. Original Post After playing six innings for the Brooklyn Cyclones yesterday, Jose Reyes pronounced himself ready to go and said, “The plan is to play tonight. Everything [...]
Buffalo Bisons 13 – Rochester Red Wings 4 This has to be considered another positive outing for Mark Cohoon. The numbers still aren’t spectacular, but he is getting his control back to where it needs to be and as a ressult getting back to being that pitcher he was most of last year. He settled down after giving up a two-out, two-run homerun in the 1st inning to last seven innings while throwing just 90 [...]
Buffalo Bisons 8 – Rochester Red Wings 4 Hits galore for both teams. Luckily for Pat Misch and the Heard the Red Wings went just 4-for-16 with runners in scoring position. Misch allowed a two-out rally in the 3rd to give up a run, three straight singles the 5th for a run, and back-to-back doubles in the 6th for the final run against him. The Bisons needed three pitchers to close out the 9th because [...]
ESPN’s Keith Law updated his 2011 Top 50 Prospect List yesterday, and Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey checked in at #26. He was the only Mets prospect to appear on Law’s list and he replaces injured pitcher Jenrry Mejia who was bumped off. Here is his Top 10: Bryce Harper, WAS Matt Moore, TB Shelby Miller, STL Carlos Martinez, STL Manny Machado, BAL Devin Mesoraco, CIN Hak-Ju Lee, TB Desmond Jennings, TB Brett Lawrie, TOR Martin Perez, [...]
Buffalo Bisons 5 – Rochester Red Wings 3 Miguel Batista looked good and I believe I heard the announcer say a pitch registered 97 mph, but I’d have to think that gun was running a little hot. It is possible, but he was mainly topping out at 94-95 mph earlier in the year. Still looks like he can contribute in the pen if need be. He pretty much dominated the batters allowing just a hit [...]
Buffalo Bisons (OFF) Chris Scwhinden pitched a perfect inning of relief in the All-Star Game on just seven pitches. (Boxscore) Binghamton Mets (OFF) Jordany Valdespin was 0-for-2 with a strikeout and Josh Satin was 0-for-1 with a walk in the All-Star Game. (Boxscore) St. Lucie Mets 6 – Lakeland Tigers 5 He wasn’t even awful tonight, and yet this is by far Darin Gorski‘s worst start of the year—which just proves how good he has [...]
After the Francisco Rodriguez deal left the door open for someone to be called up to replace his roster spot, the Mets wasted no time. Ryota Igarashi has been confirmed to have been called up by David Waldstein. Ryota has basically become a three-pitch respectable reliever – throwing a fastball, curveball, and the occasional change-up. Igarashi’s stats down in AAA were nothing short of great: In 31.0 IP, Igarashi has a 0.87 ERA and a [...]
