I caught up with St. Lucie Mets infielder Danny Muno during St. Lucie’s off-day on Sunday. The St. Lucie Mets lead the Florida State League’s Southern Division by 9.0 games right now with a 28-8 record. We only had a few minutes for a quick couple of questions, but I thought you might find it interesting none-the-less. Here’s what we had time for: Petey: Hey Danny, what are some of the toughest things about playing [...]
Buffalo 7, Charlotte 6 By Pete Shapiro The Bisons hung on to win a nail-biter as SS Omar Quintanilla made a diving, sprawling catch in shallow left-field, with two-outs in the ninth and the tying run rounding third-base and on it’s way home. Had Quintanilla not made the spectacular play to stifle a two-out rally the game would have been tied up, instead the Herd held on to defeat the Charlotte Knights by a score [...]
Charlotte 5, Buffalo 4 By Pete Shapiro With the Bisons leading 4-2 in the eighth, Charlotte Knights DH Hector Gimenez stepped to the plate with two on, and two outs and promptly deposited a Justin Hampson offering over the left-field wall making losers of the Bisons by a score of 5-4. It was the second hard fought, late-inning, one-run loss to the Knights in the last two games, both lost due to key HR’s by [...]
Buffalo Bisons infielder Bobby Scales has been placed on the temporary inactive list. The move was made as a result of reporters finding out that he was planning on signing with a team in the Japanese Baseball League. A check of the Bison’s roster on the team’s official website reveals that Scales name has been removed from the team’s roster. Scales, a second baseman, is presently leading the Herd with a .339 batting average. His [...]
Charlotte 3, Buffalo 2 By Pete Shapiro The Herd battled it out with the Charlotte Knights with never any more than one run separating the two combatants, for ten tense innings before succumbing to Charlotte by a score of 3-2. Buffalo would come back to tie the score, both in the seventh and ninth innings, only to see the game slip away from them in the bottom-of-the-tenth. LHP Garrett Olson was the story of the [...]
Binghamton 9, New Hampshire 2 By Tim Burns On the night Zack Wheeler returned to the Binghamton Mets lineup their offense exploded to earn him the win in the first game of a four game set in Manchester, New Hampshire by a score of 9-2. Wheeler, who improved his record to 2-2, pitched five innings giving up two earned runs on six hits. Along the way, he struck out seven New Hampshire batters and walked [...]
The phone rang, and it was Mets RHP Matt Budgell who was relaxing with some of the other players in their hotel room at Port St. Lucie after completing their Tuesday workouts at extended spring training. Matt was the Mets 10th round pick in last years MLB draft, and was nice enough to spend a little time answering questions for all of us here at MMO. We spoke for about twenty minutes as Matt told me how [...]

Buffalo 4, Gwinnett 1 By Andrew O’Brien Zach Lutz hit a two-out single in the top of the seventh inning Wednesday night, plating two runs and extending Buffalo’s lead to 4-1. The Bisons’ bullpen held on to preserve the win for Jeurys Familia. Familia improved his Triple-A record to 3-1 with the win after going six strong innings, allowing four hits, one run while striking out six and walking two. He threw 85 pitches (59 [...]
