Unlike the Mets AAA and AA minor league entries, Their Single-A team in the Florida State League has been having a very good season, and are right in the thick of the playoff mix. There will be a “stretch run” for St Lucie, as they were the first half division winners, and are thus assured a playoff spot. What has been St Lucie’s formula for success? Let’s look a little more closely to find out. [...]
Buffalo Bisons 2 – Leigh Valley IronPigs 1 Miguel Bautista was not very sharp at all allowing eight hits and six walks in 5.2 innings, but the IronPigs hit a putrid 1-for-11 with RISP to score just one run against him. Justin Hampson left the 8th inning in a bit of a jam and Dale Thayer came on to bail him out and earn a four-out save. Luis Figueroa, Mike Baxter, Josh Satin, and Val [...]
Buffalo Bisons 8 – Scranton/WB Yankees 5 Dylan Owen got rocked earlier then settled down and cruised for a while. Owen let four men reach with two outs and faced seven men total resulting in two runs. Owen then allowed a two-run homer in the 3rd. Owen sailed along until he allowed a two-out double in the 8th inning before being pulled and watched John Lujan allow his run to score. Dale Thayer worked a [...]
According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults—8.3 percent of the population—are living with the diabetes. Among these is Mets outfield prospect Cory Vaughn. Vaughn, the son of former Major League slugger Greg Vaughn, was drafted out of high school by the Phillies in 2007 but opted to attend San Diego State University. He was then drafted by the Mets in last year’s draft. All he’s done so far in the Mets [...]
Buffalo Bisons 3 – Scranton/WB Yankees 6 Mark Cohoon had another decent start to finish his July and has finished the month 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 28 innings along with just one homerun allowed and a 6:20 BB:K ratio. The numbers may not sound spectacular, but they are a big step forward from his 1-4, 7.36 ERA in 25.2 innings in June with a 10:13 BB:K and six homeruns allowed. Five of the [...]
Buffalo Bisons 2 – Scranton/WB Yankees 3 After three consecutive subpar performances Chris Schwinden rebounded with an excellent outing, allowing just two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings. The first run of the game scored in the 2nd inning on a two-out double to score a baserunner from first base. He then allowed a a solo homerun in the 5th inning, but left with the game tied. John Lujan got five [...]
Wilmer Flores might as well be the least talked about top prospect the Mets have had in a while. He is still very young, and his bat is coming along slowly, but it is coming. At just 19 years of age, about to turn 20 , he still has plenty of time to develop. So far this season we have not seen a great batting average, or a ton of power. But, what we are seeing is a lot of [...]
Alas, like the AAA Bisons, there will be no joy in Mudville, or in Binghamton in 2011. Like the Bisons, the B-Mets have had a season where they had to plug holes. One or two were in the rotation, when Mark Cohoon and Dylan Owen were called up to AAA. But the rest of their problems stem from lack of production from many of their key players. Pitching – There have been some miserable failures [...]
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 [...]
