Nick Evans has been called the first baseman of the future for the New York Mets and has been considered the heir apparent to Carlos Delgado. The Mets may have to rethink all of that in light of the tremendous struggles Evans is experiencing at AAA – Buffalo. In 75 at-bats for the Bisons, Evans is batting an abysmal .093 with just 7 hits this season. Three of those hits are homeruns, but that’s no [...]
Buffalo 5 (OMG FIVE!), Norfolk 3 (OMG A WIN!) Yes, Buffalo increased their win total by 16.67%, from 6 to 7. Unfortunately, the other number on the ledger is a 22, as in 22 losses. The third is a 15, as in 15 games out of first place. Jesus Feliciano, Fernando Martinez and Michel Abreu (hitting 2-3-4), went a combined 6 for 11 with 3 2b, a HR and 3 RBI, pacing a 10 hit [...]
Buffalo 1, Norfolk 3 Another game, another woeful offensive showing from the Bisons. This time, they managed just a run on 4 hits and 3 walks, going 1 for 11 with RISP and leaving 5 on base. Cory Sullivan (1 for 3, BB, K, .208), Argenis Reyes (white hot Argenis Reyes, 2 for 3, run, 2b, BB, .328 today; 10 for his last 20) and Mike Lamb (1 for 3, 2b, RBI, BB, .098) had [...]
Buffalo 1, Norfolk 5 Kyle Snyder got tagged with the loss, giving up just an UER over 4 innings (thanks to a Jose Coronado error). Carlos Muniz continues to be very subpar in relief for the Bisons, he’s now given up 7 earned runs in his last 3 innings, and has a 7.62 era on the season. The Bisons offense managed just 6 hits and 1 walk, and were a putrid, pathetic 0 for 13 [...]
I got this via comment on MetsMerized (which is an all purpose Mets blog, which everyone should definitely visit) on the 4/30 Minor League Report (I post it there, as well as NYFS and my blog, MetsProspectHub, and yeah, it’s been a couple weeks, but um…I just figured out how to find my posts and reply to comments on MMO :blush:) I was at the Port St Lucie game last night (meaning the April 30th [...]
Buffalo 6, Lehigh Valley 4 Dillon Gee had another rough outing in Buffalo today, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits in 4 innings, but the Bisons bullpen turned in 5 innings of 1 hit shutout relief, allowing the much maligned offense a chance to come back, which they did on this morning. The offense had 11 hits and a walk, going 3 for 10 with RISP and leaving 5 men on base. Cory Sullivan, Robinson [...]
Buffalo 1, Lehigh Valley 2 Yeah, well…at least Fernando’s hot. 2 more hits (2b, 3b) and he raises his average back to .287. Tim Redding was very good over his 6 innings, allowing just a run on 6 hits with 5 Ks. Outside of that…in the word of my friend Joey DeMayo…plop. Willy Mo Pena (0 for 3, K, .227), Mike Lamb (0 for 3, .074), Rafael Arroyo (0 for 2, BB, 2 Ks, .000) [...]
Buffalo 0, Lehigh Valley 3 Nelson Figueroa gave up 2 runs on 3 hits in 5 innings, enough to take the loss as the Bisons managed just 3 hits on offense, from just two players. Jesus Feliciano (2 for 3, .311) and Ramon Martinez (1 for 3, 3 for 6) had the hits, everyone else took 0-fers. rf Fernando Martinez 0 for 3, .278 1b Willy Mo Pena 0 for 3, K, .263 3b Mike [...]
Binghamton 6, Portland 11 Roy Merritt’s 2 blown saves (including tonight) have yielded all of his runs allowed (all 6), he gave up 3 more runs tonight in blowing the save, when he was asked to work 2 innings, and had to removed after retiring just one batter. In between, he allowed 3 runs on 3 hits (including a homer). Every pitcher the Mets threw out there gave up runs, The starter, Jose Sanchez, gave [...]
Buffalo 4, Louisville 1 Brandon Knight had an outstanding start this afternoon, firing 7 innings of 5 hit shutout ball as the Bisons won for the 2nd time in 3 games, 4-1 over the Bats. Fernando Martinez had another huge day with 3 hits, including his 10th double and 3rd homer. Martinez has raised his average 54 points in the last 4 games (going 8 for 14 with 2 2b, 2 HR and 5 RBI [...]
